Well… it appears Hands of Peace will be delayed for me, as my second child is due when I would have been in full swing with production! This is a blessing in many ways, however. Aside from another beautiful addition to love in my family, I have decided to use the time to find appropriate funding and community support for the project (beyond the wonderfulness of the Eau Claire Area School District). I intend to apply for several grants, in hopes to get at least one, to financially give me permission to spend the time this project deserves. Maternity leave is a good time to do this, wouldn’t you say? So, it will happen. It is now intended to happen in fall 2014 or Spring 2015 (depending on school schedule and funding disbursement). To be continued… dancing peace will come!
We are moving creatures, full of both earth and sky, always ending and beginning on a path of planting, sprouting, soaring, and composting as life moves through us. May we find the sun inside ourselves with which we express in response to all the gifts we experience. May we find connection, the safety in present curiousity, and deep love. May we meet God. May we see God in each other. Through learning to share our sun through this vessel, may we also learn to walk with bared-feet.
