I have a new dream, born of an advertisement in the weekly paper. The request for (especially) male mentors for at risk youth was serendipitously placed next to the "Pottery Show" happening this week. The down side to being a mentor is that one has to find an activity that is fun. Week after week you knock yourself out to please the kid. Then, subtly, the message that gets communicated is that it's the place or exterior circumstances that are to be valued over the relationship. Solution: male mentors can bring their mentees to learn ceramics together. At The Store!
