It has been a while since I have been able to participate in a challenge. When I saw IF for this week challenged us to be "Wise", I felt it hit the nail on the head. I only hope people see it, and hear it and live it.
The political posts have been everywhere. My decision on who to vote for was made by me, it was private, it was not for everybody else nor was I influenced by art blogs or going to influence anyone through the blog world. I just skipped over them as much as I could. Kept my mouth shut until after the election where I voice an opinion with someone who felt the same way. I was deeply saddened the other day when I thought I was going to discover a new art inspiration and hit a link that took me to something that made me want to shut the computer off for the rest of my life. Support is one thing, cruelty, disrespect and lack of adult self control in regards to "trashing" the opponent is another. What is wrong with people? I can only pray these people who are so disrespectful to other humans are not breeding...I would hate for that offspring to reach a point in life where they might have to take care of our generation.
A bit of advice to anyone out there on cruelty to others. Your cruelty does not weaken the person you are targeting. Your time and energy add energy to the person you disrespect...hence taking it away from who you are rooting for.
Next,I suggest you "Invite Peace" into your life...bee wise! I have hidden with a clear marker in this art work Gandhi's quote "Be the change you wish to see in the world" . As soon as I top coat it with a gloss medium it will probably not be legible...but it is there. I also have it pasted to my wall where I work, of course I had to change one letter in "Be" to Bee".
So to those who have been cruel this electoral season...should you ever end up here...thank you for stopping by...Now it is time to read my opinion!
Bee the Change you wish to see in the World.
The President can not make you a better you, that is your responsibility. All those waiting for a "Change"...why? you should have already been working on that....try it...it catches on and pays itself forward.
To all my friends out there, my dear, dear friends...I am not in any way talking to you and when I calm down a bit I will tell you all about how I did this art piece.
