Teaching, Creating, Travelling

Teach Peace

Teach Peace  from Hippie Peace Freaks with thanks

1  I just want to say how much I loved teaching and teaching peace is surely the most important thing we could all do…….

2   This is a delightful combination of colour, music and creativity. (Photo not mine, sent to me via Fb.)

Creating makes me happy, be it cooking a meal for family or friends, knitting or sewing clothes for little people, writings of various sorts, designing in the garden, playing music …….

3   These are the powder colours which I bought from a beautiful girl in Varanasi, India, on our way back from watching the sun rise over The Ganges. She made lovely patterns on my hand with them before we negotiated a price and she told me how she was selling things to raise money for her school books. She then walked beside me protecting me from the traffic (cows, cars, Tuktuks, scooters, coaches and cycle rickshaws) until we reached our bus. A beautiful memory.

    I love the crochet notes! What a beautiful momento/memory of your trip to India. Art, music, dance…all global unifying instruments.

    With India being predominantly hindu, given that colour plays an important part of Hinduism and society there, the jars of ground pigment seems a fitting objet de vertu to return home with. Smart purchase, An the spirit in the girls eyes, arms to her side, one palm open the other clutching a book -kindness and wisdom -a keepsake photograph most certainly.

      Kindness and wisdom indeed, a feisty young woman with a big heart. 🙂
