Well, this day is alive with the spirit of giving creativity. On Wednesday I had a tiny sprout of an idea to give somehow, to Japan, inspired by my friend Tomoe. I thought, "I have to do something", just to make myself feel useful. I'm a big believer that this Earth school is fraught with struggle and that charity for the sake of merely helping others is a one dimensional approach. With that in mind my intention of helping is only ever to make myself a conduit of Love and creating a ripple effect of that Love. I can't ever take someone else's learning opportunity away from them but I can create a ripple of Love.
With my little idea of starting a facebook group called ARTISTS FOR JAPAN on Wednesday afternoon amazing things are happening. This morning I awoke to 175 emails in my inbox and our group has grown to 311 people. I'm flying by the seat of my pants, trying to keep up with the response. I have no idea how to do this but I'm finding that the answers are coming in on real time, just as I need them. Art Saves.

this is the painting I'm donating to be auctioned. 'Poppies' 12"x12"

Great idea for a very worthy cause. Thanks for starting this Carrie. Also, thanks for your comment on my blog. How did you get it so your avatar would show up? I want a custom one too. :)
