Peace Blast, Wordless Wednesday
and Project Blue (Take Four)
Twice a year for the past four years, Mimi at Mimi Writes, hosts something called the Peace Blast. It's cyber event bringing together the combined energy of people from around the world in sharing our love of, hope for and belief in the possibility of peace. I've tried to approach this in a way that combines it with Wordless Wednesday and Anna Carson's Project Blue and draws in the energy of all the wonderful creative people who participate in those memes, while still honoring the principles of both. Of course I'm putting a lot of words here but I'm seldom really wordless. Honoring Project Blue was pretty easy. To honor the idea of Wordless Wednesday, I posted the Peace Blast Earth banner (also blue) and put the bulk of my words into the body of one of my photos which I messed with using Paintshop Pro. I did write some other posts on peace which anyone who wants to can read here or here. You can click on the first graphic for an easier to read size.
(Well, I have to add some more words. Sorry. Angel, the world's most mis-named cat - has many naughty talents. One of these is popping open the boom box and removing CDs. I keep coming up with ways to thwart her and she keeps figuring out ways to thwart me back. This week she has been at it again but her shenanigans gave me an idea for project blue that also felt in tune with the Peace Blast and WW. The CD she popped is a lovely blue one called AWAKENED HEART. The artists, Saggio and his wife Barbara are friends who were extremely kind to me during my time in Arizona. They are incredibly talented. Saggio's music is a gift of Spirit and is both beautiful and healing. Kwan Yin here is the Goddess of Compassion and I liked the idea of her holding the CD. Certainly both compassion and awakening hearts are a key to creating a peaceful world. )
Happy Wordless Wednesday, Everyone. I hope you'll check out other the Peace Blast and even add your own voices to the chorus.
