I have never heard of ART. I'm intrigued.

I'm so inspired! Your alter is absolutely gorgeous. I assume the collage hanging on the wall is yours? You have such a talent for creating tableaus -- the color, scale, positioning, combination of items is exquisite. Wish you could come create one for me :-)

I love to hear young people of all ages talk. On my university campus, I love nothing more than to eavesdrop conversations. They don't all start with "Dude." Politics, style, literature, science -- young people lapping it up and learning to think for themselves is a beautiful thing.

Love your alters. Besides adding beauty to your environment and reminding you of the sacred, I think they remind you to slow down, to observe, to share gratitude, to reflect. Enjoy your quiet weekend. They are precious!

I am always so stunned by the beauty of your collages and this one is so very lovely. But I'm even more taken by the sense of peace and balance in your essay. Oh, if only we all could strive for AND achieve it in our lives! Last night Mr. Mom asked me "Are you happy?" And my response was "Yes, of course." But I wonder how much it shows, how much my spirit exudes happiness (and peace and balance and generosity and warmth)? Thank you for such a calming way to spend a few minutes. I hope the changes and activity associated with the coming fall bring you as much happiness as the summer did.

"And by making this choice for myself and myself only, I am doing what I can to shift the energy for my entire family and all of our ancestors and descendants in all directions of time. What could be more powerful than that?" All I can say is Wow. Thank you for reminding me of this important and profound lesson.
