It would seem that humankind refuses to learn lessons from the past, and so here we are 100 years since the war which was supposed to end all wars began, still enveloped in conflict in many places around the Globe!
The Peacock symbolises integrity, beauty, resurrection and awakening.
I could write about my strong anti war feelings, and much more…
However, as a woman, mother, artist and human being – I am only concerned with bringing a sense of peace and hope, especially for the children of our world.
As an adult it can all feel overwhelming and out of control, and so what must it feel like for a child?
My friends from around the world all feel the same way. Everyone I speak with wants the same things….peace, food on the table, shelter, clothing and a connection with nature – and so why does it continue?
I think it has to do with the insatiable greed of man…because as disgusting as it might sound, there are those who become very rich from war!
We only have to look at Mother Nature to see how life can work in a harmonious and balanced way, and how different species can share the same environment.
When I see the bombed devastation of a war torn country, all I see is black, grey and horror, the complete opposite to Mother Nature’s bounty.
We seem to be creating the perfect storm. Humanity in dire conflict and at the same time we are abusing the natural world…..
Time to wake up….
Wishing everyone a peaceful and creative Monday.
