The boy who knew too much: a child prodigy

This is the true story of scientific child prodigy, and former baby genius, Ainan Celeste Cawley, written by his father. It is the true story, too, of his gifted brothers and of all the Cawley family. I write also of child prodigy and genius in general: what it is, and how it is so often neglected in the modern world. As a society, we so often fail those we should most hope to see succeed: our gifted children and the gifted adults they become. Site Copyright: Valentine Cawley, 2006 +

Art project: appeal for volunteers.

My brother in law, Hafiz Osman, is a professional artist (which long term readers of my blog will know). Right now, he is preparing for an exhibition. He has asked me, to ask you, to help him with one of his artworks. We would very much appreciate it, if you could help with the art work - or suggest someone who could do so.

The requirement is simple: Hafiz Osman would like volunteers who were residents in the former Hillview Estate to become involved in the art work. No art skill is necessary - just the kindness of a good heart and a moment of time. Involvement in the art work will cost the participants NOTHING at all. However, participants would get the satisfaction of knowing that they helped an art work happen. There is also an element of "immortalization" involved, in their participation, however indirectly, in that the way they interact with the art work will make a lasting impression.

I can't give details on this blog without revealing too much of this new art work, before the exhibition (which would spoil it for Hafiz). However, if you would like to help an art work happen and are kind enough to give a few minutes of your time (it will not take more than that), then please CONTACT HAFIZ OSMAN at I know that email address is only contains two zeroes, in the first half...the other one is an o (comes before "p" in the alphabet). Alternatively, you can call him on 94786131.

So, if you are from the Hillview Estate - or you know someone who is - then please volunteer to help Hafiz with this piece of art work - or suggest to your friend that they should do so. Remember, it will cost you nothing, but allow you to help in the creation of a lasting work of art.
