Flowers for Algernon at PoP

 As we meander a Path of Positivity, we are challenging you to Fall Into a Book!  Yes, that's right!  This month we want you to design a project influenced by a BOOK or STORY. Getting lost in a great book/story/poetry is a wonderful way to relax and find some positivity! 

 My journal page is a memory of a wonderful book I read in MS/HS called Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes.  It is a thought provoking read about a young man, Charlie, with an IQ lower than average who meets up with a Dr/Scientist who makes him a genius for a short time.  

Algernon is the lab mouse who received the drug before Charlie.  Algernon's progression and regression basically predicts Charlie's future outcomes. 

This book has always had a profound effect on my thinking, so this challenge seemed the perfect time to journal it.

*   *   *  

   We'd like to hear your ideas at Path of Positivity.  Come share them with us!  

Remember, you may share any sort of artistic medium over at PoP:  writing, cards, journals, scrapbooking, painting, sewing, baking, needle crafts, etc as long as it is positive!  The theme is always optional.
