Liz: When I was away at artist educator week which was amazing I found out that students in New York are having sit ins , as are students in Amsterdam at the Rietveld and I knew students have been in London at University of the Arts London at St Martins.

Michel Thomas 1914- 2005 was a polyglot linguist. He developed a way of teaching languages quickly. In his earlier life he survived imprisonment in several different Nazi concentration camps
With Thomas's method, the teacher cautions students to avoid making notes and to refrain from making conscious attempts to memorise, promising that the teacher will "be taking full responsibility" for their learning. Thomas stated that keeping the students relaxed, focused, and stretched with a feeling of mounting successful achievement lies at the heart of the method. The removal of the stress and anxiety of "being put on the spot" of conventional language learning, especially school language learning, is a key advantage of the method.

Apollo chased the nymph Daphne...
"a heavy numbness seized her limbs, thin bark closed over her breasts, her hair turned into leaves, her arms into branches, her feet so swift a moment ago stuck fast in slow-growing roots, her face was lost in the canopy. Only her shining beauty was left.”...
The laurel became sacred to Apollo, and crowned the victors at the Pythian Games.
Most artistic impressions of the myth focus on the moment of transformation.
