Greater Putnam United Nations International Day Of Peace Celebration Today September 21st, 2008*










A Funny Thing Happen On The Way To Today's Peace Day Celebration--

Where do I begin as to not bore anybody, the joys of "oye"......
It all started out as a good week.  I worked Mon., Tue., & Wed., for the remainder of the week I was out & about getting things done, there was even a computer lesson on Thursday, can't say that it all sunk in, but I'm trying nonetheless.  Being a rather ecliptic creative type my style has evolved to...a little done here, a little done there,  eventually it all gets done with a lot of color & texture.  I also picked up a few special signs & a custom banner done for this very Blog.  Or as my family would say, "blog, blog, blog, blog, blog....." It's been a lot of expressive fun for sure & my family has been most supportive in these new electronic adventures........ 

After my car was loaded to the brim-- craft supplies, flowers, old news papers, mulch, signs, the new banner & even my Peace Potato. [How's the spelling there Dan Quail, but I have spell check.] Well I made it to the celebration, late, but still about a half hour before the official start of 2pm, nonetheless not as timely as I would have liked to be, as the topic of the day is the essence of my being.

I will tell you this--  never drive with gigantic flower pots full of wet mulch in the front of your car, never!  When what I thought was to be an important embellishment to help recreate a potted garden in the park, instead turned out to be a royal mess of  surprise all over the front of my car instead.  As the giant pots tipped all over my craft supplies I could image hearing my husband say to me, "Never put stuff like that in the front of your car, what were you thinking?",  but he was all ready at the celebration helping out in numerous ways.  He's so timely & prepared.   I had to stop along the way, reconfigure, recompose as not only was the wet mulch all over the place, but many of my plants took a rather rugged ride from that point on, especially my very sweet,-- "Sweet Peace Potato" who is finally back in my kitchen window & happy to be in some water.  It was a disappointment to not have it on the craft table as I had imaged how I wanted everything to look set up, along with the new Blog banner, which of course was not hung up as time was of the essence & I was all ready way behind.  I will remain flexible & it will have to be for next time, not necessarily next year in Jerusalem, but you never know--   I do know now, if possible, to be all set ahead of schedule.  What gets in the way all the time is --"the hair, it's always the hair", my husband understands, & he kind of suspected that my tardiness was a bit deeper than the mulch.  He was so right.  If you had hair like mine, all I can say is that it does have a very strong will of it's own, I can always predict it to be unpredictable, at least we're not in a humid zone now.

 Tonight & later in the week I will add some photos from The Peace Day Celebration to,"Mother Lightning's Peace Garden"  as you know you have an open invitation please feel free to come & visit, enjoy the view, or as my father would say sooo many years ago when our eldest was just 4 or so & we were  hiking the Sawyer River Trail up in the White Mountains--" Tarry awhile".  For me all the world's a garden & I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.

In the tradition of my heritage our special time of the year is approaching ---  Rosh Hashanah, translated from the Hebrew to mean, "Head Of The Year"--  The Jewish New Year, so with the up coming New Year I wish you all -- " Good Health, Happiness, *Ahava & Shalom/Salam, to All you hold dear.

{*Ahava is Hebrew for love}
