What is it?

Children know something that most people have forgotten. Children possess a fascination with their everyday existence that is very special and would be very helpful to adults if they could learn to understand and respect it.*
(Keith Haring)

While working on a painting project with the five hundred students at a Chicago high school, Keith Haring was approached by one who said:

I can tell, by the way you paint, that you really love life.**

Wouldn’t it be something to rediscover our everyday fascination with our everyday existence, whatever it is we do, and to help others find theirs.

The wonderful thing is, it’s possible.

What is it?
How does it work?
Who did that?
Why does that happen?
