Yes We Did!!

John and I were recent guests in the home of artist/friend Arlene Elizabeth and her partner, Ruth for the unveiling of Arlene's new origami mosaic in the likeness of our new President. We were each invited to write something on the piece which will, eventually, be sent to the White House. I wrote, "When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace." (not my words)

 

This piece was made from 1,000 origami paper cranes and contains hundreds of different colors representing every skin color imaginable.

 

This was a very touching experience for all.

 

For the locals: Arlene and family will carry this piece to the Berkeley Farmer's Market this weekend and will be there from 10-5 on Saturday. Please stop by and sign it with your own messages of peace and change for our country. Be a part of history!
