The space of a day

Earthdance in Cedar Grove was an opportunity for a huge circle to join in a World Peace Prayer. There were demonstrations of alternative technologies, vendors, food, dancing and community Thanks to Eartha and Tanya (below) and many others.
I'd taken the electric bike to 5 Mile for a picnic with Randy Larsen, his friends, mom and grandmother. Our topic was "beauty" and some said what Beauty meant to them, others read poems or sang but Randy's mom spoke tearfully about her mother's hands-- the work, the love, the creativity of them over 90+ years, now so fragile.
Along the way was this devastation as road crews kill trees in preparation to widening Hwy 99, something that is really not needed at all. The only life soon to be left is the depiction of life on the cement girders.
And on the way home Michael and I looped the downtown plaza park where Pastels on the Plaza had taken place, finding this gentle reminder about the need for Peace in Congo. Thank you unknown peace person for reminding us about this forgotten tragedy. The more we know of the world the more we love it and the more responsible we are--near and far.
