Photos of Wesley Building Dreams exhibition & Emily Dickinson's poem, "If I can stop..."

Hi, Friends, today, Sunday 10 August is the last day of Wesley Building Dreams inclusive art exhibition. It's open in Wesley Mission foyer at 220 Pitt Street from 9 am to 5 pm. A hop, step, jump from Town Hall station. Come and see the exhibition for a strictly limited time! These photos are in the courtesy of Wesley media team.

The Building Dreams exhibition displays both, our wonderful clients and school students, which illustrates community diversity and inclusion. Each school child's tag and statement is so touching and moving. Oh, please come and read them all. It's worth spending time. You'll find children's pure dreams and their inner worlds from innocent wishes to serious hopes for universal themes such as wellbeing, world peace and so on. 
We know technically sophisticated works do not always reach at our hearts. Simple, yet, a strong and honest message comes into our hearts. The same is true of our job, children picture book illustration. These drawings are all precious master pieces in my eyes. 
One client actually bought brushes on her own and started painting after my mentoring, even though none of my students has never touched watercolour paint ever before!!! What a wonderful reward for me! I celebrated it with my team leader. See this beautiful smiling! I'm sure this is, "THIS-ABILITY."
This week Wesley Mission CEO, Rev Dr Keith Garner attended the exhibition. He met Wesley Disability Services clients and me. I heartily appreciate this project offered by Wesley Mission and their great back up. 
Also, ... I have to confess that tears were coming up in the eyes, when I saw my clients --- once, who had been extremely shy --- were full of confident and happily answering Rev Dr Keith Garner!!!  Oh, what a reward for me! I, again, celebrated it with my team leader.

Lastly, I'd dedicate my favorite Emily Dickinson's poem for our humble clients. Without noticing, they have been giving us the meaning of life, certainly and surely. 

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.

I hope we can carry on this project as a respite for clients' carers who are already burnt out. Also, I hope to bring joy and assist clients to have self-esteem and creativity, while maximising their talents. 

Friends, thank you very much for your wonderful support and warm cheers for this project. Your comments and emails have supported me at a tough time.  
Friends, Happy Painting!!!
