Childhood Innocence

It's Thursday again, so here is an online link to this week's The List: Top Home & Garden Events on page 26 of today's print edition in the Washington Examiner. Featured event is the Brookside Children's Day where we'll have a booth and being doing our seed-matching game. Come by to be stumped!
Our staff photog, Drena, took this photo at the Brookside Children's Day in 2005. If this doesn't make you long for days of carefree youth, nothing will. Conicidentally, I saw a screening of My Child Could Paint That yesterday and it was disturbing on several levels. The documentary covers a 4-year-old art world sensation and questions the nature of modern art. Deeper than that we look at what happens when a preschooler gets bombarded by overnight fame. Then comes the ultimate question: did SHE really do that? And what if she didn't? If the paintings were say done by a 35-year-old man are they still the same paintings? See it when it comes out and make up your own mind.
