First of all, let me say how much freakin' FUN I am having with Lisa's ONE WORLD ONE HEART event. I have been blog-hopping all over the place! It is inspiring to bask in all the creative, loving, friendly vibes! Thanks to all of you who are participating! My journal challenge this week was to make a zendala, and I am posting 2 of mine. I found it very relaxing to work on these serendipitous designs! I even taught my second graders how to do these on Friday and they had fantastic results! They asked, "When can we do this again?!"
This week in my blog travels, I have been completely bowled over by the expressions of GOODWILL, HOPE, and LOVE for our country! After a year of feeling I had to supress my feelings and wishes for our country and the world, it is wonderful to connect with so many who are feeling the same way as I do! So, even though we had a recent DREAMS theme, I cannot get away from the theme of HOPE! I think there is a subtle difference in expressing DREAMS and HOPES. Dreams sometimes stay in the clouds, but hopes we can breathe life into.
Let's try to focus on articulating our HOPES FOR THE FUTURE and HOW WE CAN BRING THAT HOPE INTO OUR LIVES AS A REALITY ! Journal about your hopes and the plans you have for channeling that hope into action!
