What is this ornament?

This is the question that I ask each time someone places an object in my hands. True it is that I can often decipher what it is: shapes of some animals such as a dog, cat, horse, bird. However, it all depends on how they are made. I can also decipher the shapes of people but when it comes to determining the gender I am not always on the money there.

It is fun to try and decipher ornaments but at times it can also be a bit frustrating. I prefer the person with me to tell me. I, of course, cannot appreciate the color of said ornament but just running my hands up and down its structure is enough for my memory to come to my rescue.

I am presently attending pottery class and learning how to create my own ornaments and it sure brings home to me how much I am unable to decipher shapes. Especially so when I use cookie cutters to create Christmas ornaments, but nevertheless, it is lots of fun.

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"Each time we raise our voice at someone else we are engaging in bullying! Each time we raise our hands to slap or punch someone else we are also engaging in bullying and each time we engage in actions to either manipulate or force someone else to do what we want we are also engaging in bullying!

There is no room in this world for bullying and each day we fail to take action against bullying it is another day that we allow others to bully us and our kids. Our heroes and role models are the ones who have made us proud; those brave young men and women who gave their lives for us in past wars and those who continue to do so. They are not the ones who choose to be racists and those who believe that their bad behaviour in public is acceptable.

I write and record audio mysteries that are being used at such events as murder mystery evenings as well as at public awareness and team building events. I promote understanding, tolerance, and problem solving and my audio mysteries continue to be broadcasted around the world and you can listen to them anywhere! On the plane or train! In the car or right there in your home! On your i device or computer!

Please join my campaign against bullying (CAB) by supporting my efforts to keep on writing and recording!
If you truly care then you will certainly dare!"
