The Creative Momentum

A mural in Montrรฉal. The book the writer is standing on is titled:

โ€œLโ€™ร‰lan Crรฉateurโ€
(The Creative Momentum)

and next to the book, it reads:

โ€œCelui qui va pensif, voit les choses, les nomme…โ€

which, according to Google, means:

“The one who goes thoughtful, sees things, names them…โ€

(poem by Albert Ferland)

Iโ€™m visiting for CogSci 2019 – Montrรฉal feels like Tribeca, albeit more spacious and French.

My horrible birthday / ๋น„์ฐธํ•œ ์ƒ์ผ

My daughter wants to write multi-volume stories, which turned out to be a daunting task, for anyone including an eight-year-old. So I suggested she start with a short one that fits within a page or two. She was not entirely happy with the restriction, but we made a deal that I would illustrate her story every time she finishes one. So here’s the first one (fiction, that is):

Me and my dad went out to buy some ice-cream becauseโ€ฆ it was my birthday! Dad didnโ€™t look that happy to buy me an ice-cream. I guess thatโ€™s because he thinks itโ€™s unhealthy.

I got a triple scoop of chocolate ice-cream on my mega sprinkle cone. After I said โ€œThank youโ€, we headed home.

But then, something terrible happened. I tripped over a rock, and went flying with my ice-cream onto another street. Luckily, I wasnโ€™t hurt badly, but my poor ice-cream became a sticky brown puddle with a lump. Dad was smiling when he came over to me. It seemed like he was so happy I dropped the ice-cream. I cried even more, I cried until we got home.
