The New Year invites a time for family and reflection, sometimes even reflections on our own childhood. Thinking about childhood often leads to reminders about nursery rhymes and other stories for kids. Looking at those stories and poems now shows how horrible some of them really are, full of fright and harm.
So why not rewrite those old stories and poems through a different lens, a restorative lens? We welcome submissions of your Restorative ReWrites and will publish some of them in upcoming issues of this newsletter. Please send your submissions to Alanna Ojibway at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 5, and include a bit about yourself and the inspiration for your Restorative ReWrite. We can’t promise we will publish your submission and we reserve the right to use your submission as we chose with appropriate attribution.
Below is an effort at a Restorative ReWrite of Humpty Dumpty. Be creative, have fun, and happy Restorative ReWriting.
