|Dream Picture and Poem by Cortney McKibben
This is a picture of my dream.
I am flying with the wind.
I feel like I am floating.
I look very blurry, like the wind.
I was over a boy's house.
I had a dream like this.
I took this picture at his basketball court.
There are two houses in the background.
There is an artificial squirrel on the mailbox.
This picture looks like a picture on TV.
I hear a car coming down the street.
I smell smoke.
It looks like I am flying through the air.
This picture makes me feel strange.
I don't look like this.
Future Focus is currently in four Hamilton County schools. The participating schools
join the AEC in developing a nine-week, hands-on program using photography as a means of
developing and enhancing a student's writing skills. Each photographic assignment is
accompanied by a "brain drain" (writing assignment).
Participating Schools are Calvin Donaldson Elementary, Chattanooga Middle School, White
Oak Elementary and North Hamilton County Elementary.
