Here’s another children’s book concept about a cherry chestnut that stays mad and always tries to pick fights with water.  Mad Cherry Chestnut is a funny little nut but he has many lessons to learn from water.  On that note maybe and be grateful for everyday you are given…..do what you LOVE.  ~illustrator Jamaal R.

How to Build a Water Wheel

So I’m looking up the specs for a water wheel because I think water wheels are cool. I came across this website and it has about a 1,000 resources that involve water wheels and wood wheels. I can sit there all day and watch the water wheel turn and turn and turn. So what does this have to do with Creative Arts? Everything. Water has historically been seen as a ancient sign of wealth and health. If you think about it you need water to drink, clean your clothes, water your grass, take a shower, and all those things lead to good health. So here you go. Here’s an article on feng shui and water. Plus the water wheel website. Enjoy.
