I try my hardest to keep topics as light as possible, here at the Peace Garden, but as we all know life can be heavy at times, "he's not heavy, he's my brother", so the song goes... , ah my friends, so true, so true, yes, the 60's again...
Yet, military contractors continue to profit in the billions through arming the world into an alliance of violence, while The Life Experience School's Peace Abbey, which exists to promote the study and practice of nonviolence, is unable to meet its mortgage obligation and is on the verge of foreclosure. This irony seems somehow fitting as our country is now involved in 3 wars under the leadership of a president who received a Nobel Peace Prize and was elected with the resounding support of the peace movement.
The Peace Abbey is needed now more than ever."

Dolly our little fashion-esta here at the Peace Garden. Today was only her second time modeling hats. Being it's a rather cool & windy spring, all types were considered. Voila, we have it here Doll, how about this favorite of purple velvet, & a fax fur band, as only a fax of course will do, for me & you, as I do love to share, especially a good hat!

The Bynars Album Release Show 5/4 @ Great Scott
Wednesday, May 4 at 9:00pm
Location: Great Scott
There's no complaining here, this crisp cold spring is where we're at. Last night we were visiting with our Bostonian son. Dinner at a local Vietnamese Restaurant, & then a movie. We saw Win Win, which we all gave a solid A, as not only was the casting excellent with Paul Giamini, but it is a very believable modern day, compelling story. A must see, as so much of it rang true to our modern day life, & presented in a way, which had just the right balance of levity, humor, & the seriousness of it all....

In this life, we all experience both the positive & the negative, as does nature. Today snow is predicted, & I am due out of town to facilitate a peace flag making project. Though in my heart, I feel a disappointment & betrayal on the part of the UN's recent sanctioning of this no fly zone, that the U.S. & other countries are a part of, I & millions more will continue to go forward, in our work of putting forth the positive side, for peaceful resolutions, for conflicts both abroad, & at home.

Truly what a beautiful day for the first day of our oncoming spring! My husband's idea was to begin this new season by getting our bikes out of the barn, & trekking off for a ride. It certainly was well worth it, after figuring out just how many layers to put on, as you do tend to warm up fast, after a few up hills & all. This was the first time I ever wore a helmet, as it is an important aspect of riding safely & all. It was always something we provided for our kids when they were growing up, but there need not be an exclusion for any of us, being as safely prepared as possible, so yes, I wore one today, too.

Change takes time, even if it's only brief minutes, such as an earthquake or a tsunami, it still takes time... Such wild forces of nature, which we do know, are strong, devastating & powerful.....
