I'm just squeaking in with an entry into Kristin's wonderful Summer of Color challenge for week 3: Lime and Purple!
I think it's very easy to get discouraged with all of the poverty and cruelty we see in the world. After all, that's all we read about or see in the news. But when I was in Guatemala with From Houses to Homes, I was struck by how many people are there to help. There are so many opportunities to do service in the world - and so many people participating in those opportunities. Seeing all that around me made me feel blessed to be a human being - to have free will - and to be able to choose to give back and help out.
We truly have magic inside of us, if we choose to tap into it. Magic to transform ourselves and the world around us. That is the subject of the quote this month at Color This Quote at Artists in Blogland:
Happy July! Are you flying a flag of independence and freedom this week? If so, what does it look like? I decided to fly a flag of equality, and created this piece, which you can read about here.
Thank you for visiting! I hope you will leave me a comment to let me know you were here. I read and treasure every comment and will answer any questions as quickly as I can.
