Touchstone Center for Children 
November Newsletter
Greetings,
 
I am pleased to announce the publication of
Enchantments of the Earth – a full color picture book based on the Center’s site-specific installation in the garden at Brooklyn Children’s Museum in 2015. This book brings together the ceramic vessels, plates and freestanding objects, Carol Grocki Lewis created to illustrate my poem Enchantments of the Earth, evoking the nature of seeds as they are planted in the earth. The book is available through Touchstone Center Publications, and will be for sale at the 5th Annual Yorkville Exhibit and Sale from December 9 – 11th.
 
 
The participatory sculptures, The Bird of Imagining and The Tree of Knowing have now found a permanent home in the newly renovated library shared by the Children’s Workshop School, East Village Community School and PS 94.  These sculptures, and the accompanying banners of original writings by children, were created by Touchstone Center’s teaching-artist Kathy Creutzburgh and were initially exhibited at Poets House in 2010 and subsequently at the Brooklyn Children’s Museum and the Brooklyn Public Library. 

 
My short essay, A Gathering of Hands, written as part of a group of essays honoring the work of psychologist and philosopher James Hillman, has just been published in Conversing With James Hillman: Senex & Puer edited by Joanne Stroud and published by The Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture.

 

 
Each seed is a mystery, a secret about to begin,
a heartbeat of the earth ready to be alive.
 

Best,

Richard
