“The Universe Within” – 48″x 36″

The Holiday Season is a time for both celebration and reflection, a time for giving and sharing of gifts and of the stories we tell of our lives. It hasn’t been an easy time in the world, and we have felt the strain. We’ve seen incredible kindness and seen the worst of society. This much I know, though, when life gets hard, we step up our game and work together. We must never give up on Peace. We must never stop trying to understand each other, even when we disagree. Let’s listen with open hearts and receptive minds. Today, as this year comes to an end, I’d like to suggest a simple question for you to ask the next time your beliefs are challenged: ‘why?’.  Ask yourself. Ask your friend or partner. Ask a stranger. If we take an interest, we just may begin to appreciate each other a little better and from that point, we can heal. Let’s make 2024 a year of understanding, healing, and peace.

My heart is filled with gratitude for all your support throughout these past years. Many of you have been on this journey with me for a long time and have seen the twisting paths I’ve travelled. Thank you for being part of it and shining a guiding light in the darkness, and a sprinkling of warm sunshine, too! I wish you Peace, Good Health, and Happiness in your hearts for the Holidays – and always!

  1. I like the idea of peace researcher Franz Jedlicka (“The forgotten peace formula”) that peace might only be possible if violence against children is outlawed in all countries of the world.
