Being Peace

I am proud to promote the efforts of one of my readers; soul sister, Vennila nr Kain:

"To mark the third anniversary of the official declaration of the War on Iraq, artist Vennila nr Kain sets up her prayer flags (for peace) in Times Square.

The installation is a delicate network of crisscrossed prayer flags similar to the Tibetan prayers flags strung over sacred spaces. The wind carries up the prayers from the flags to the realm of gods, or as blessings over land. This window installation is part of the ongoing series of ‘being peace’ art created by the artist."

Vennila is an actor, poet, yogini, performance artist, humbly committed to the Gandhian philosophy of being the change she wants to see in the world. Support her efforts at

I'll call your Thich Nhat Hanh and raise you two Jon Kabat-Zinns. Peace is every step, but you, my dear Kel, already know that. Bring in the next choir. :-)

Prayer flags, what a gift that is. It's beautiful and respectul in its statement. I learned last year that one definition of blessing to wish goodness for someone. I wish that for your sister in her work.
