R.I.P Alice Hertz-Sommer. Love Was The Answer

Posted on February 24th, 2014 by - 1 comment

The death of Alice Herz-Sommer was announced today. No cause for huge sadness as she had reached the grand old age of 110 and lived an amazing life. That’s a pretty remarkable feat in anyone but in Alice’s case even more so.

Grab some coloured pencils or crayons. Draw a tree. Here’s mine opposite. NB this is not about being brilliant at ‘art’, as you can clearly see from my effort; it’s about thinking in a different way.
