Today is International Dot Day.  A day for celebrating and encouraging creativity in your life and in your classroom.


I had so many thoughts when I learned of this celebration.  One thought was the famous Paul Klee quote – alineisadot

I started to think about my life and creativity.  I remember thinking as a young woman that I wasn’t very creative.  And now during this portion of my life, I am so excited to be constantly creating.  My dot of creativity certainly did go for a walk.


This quote from Steve Jobs reminded me to trust in my creativity.  That this creativity will take me forward in the future to maybe explore many different talents that are right now lying dormant.

Today I to honor this happy and unexpected turn in my life.  So, I am going to take some time to reflect about how it came about.  In other words, I will try to connect the dots.

Wishing you a connect the dot opportunity,



About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.

    I will celebrate Dot Day with my students and we will share with a younger class. I even have a Dot Day costume. It’s a great way to celebrate creativity. I never thought of it as connecting the dots of your life. Thanks for a new perspective.


  2. We celebrated International Dot Day in my Creativity Capstone class this morning and the department’s office assistant gave us a wall by her desk to hangout creative “dottings”… I hope everyone who walks by the display in jealous of what we do in that class because it’s awesome!

    I love your post and the images and quotes you included. I like the idea of connecting the dots in my life.


  3. Love your post! I bought the book and shared it with my after school book club today. Hoping some dots show up at next week’s meeting. Elsie is out of the country on a trip. I was wondering until another friend filled me in. She is missed!


  4. I, too, wondered about Elsie and miss her postings. I’m sure she’ll have a lot to share when she returns.
    Dot Day is new to me and a delightful discovery. Your presentation is imaginative and fun and a wonderful example of how “less is more,” one of my favorite sayings. I, too, feel my creativity has become unleashed later in life and am enjoying the results. Maybe it’s because I have done my “work,” and now I’m retired and can focus more on what delights me.
