Whirled Peace

Imagine...  whirled peace!
In today’s world, peace needs to be more than just a word.

Imagine…  millions of pinwheels spinning in the wind – pinwheels in the United States, Great Britain, South America, Australia, the Middle East, Canada,  Africa, Europe and Asia;  pinwheels all over the world! – big pinwheels, small pinwheels;  pinwheels of all  shapes and sizes – colorful pinwheels, decorated with drawings, paintings, collages, photographs  – pinwheels with words of peace and harmony written on them – fields of pinwheels, pinwheels along roadsides, in schoolyards, in parks, pinwheels EVERYWHERE!  

This is the Pinwheels for Peace project!
Please join us on International Day of Peace, September 21st, as we create a visual public statement about peace!  My high school art students and I participated.  Did you?

I luv turtles because he loves turtles

 Time changes many things, but not the joy 
friendship brings.

My nephew loves turtles so his uncle Rick picks them up whenever he sees one.  We are on the catch and release plan so we only have it for a day or two and then they are returned to the wild.  It is amazing how much fun one little boy can have with a turtle.
