Phoenix Rising and A Connecticut Artist of Peace

Colors of blue and light gold are particularly beautiful when placed in close proximity to each other. Wherever you go on the web today, you will find glorious support for the people of Ukraine. 
Different artists. Different countries. Different beliefs. 
Same voice for peace. 

Here are just a few samples of the peace globes I've found in the Blogosphere and on social media this weekend during our Blog4Peace/Post4Peace Ukraine Event.  Follow the trail at this link  where you can find a Mr. Linky list of peace posts with more beautiful articles and art to find on the web. If you haven't already, continue to post4peace and blog4peace throughout the weekend and visit each other. I'm going to keep peace flying here on Mimi Writes and at the Official Site of Blog4Peace and in the Official Gallery for some time to come. Our Facebook page has MUCH information and many many posts and peace bloggers communicating with each other, posting inspiring links and news from Ukraine. Peace Bloggers GROUP and Blog4Peace Facebook Page  Now, back on the trail for peace. 
I found this work in my Facebook stream over the weekend. It's by a Connecticut artist and teacher (see below) Something about the way the colors move into cohesiveness brings me joy and peace. Thank you, Marianne Zikaras Wainwright.

Thank you for giving so much of yourselves this weekend for the people of Ukraine and in support of peace. There is no better time to use our voices. We've "practiced" since 2006, haven't we? I hope we never have to make an emergency peace launch again. Unfortunately, the circumstances call for action. Nonetheless, we'll keep blogging and posting for peace - in wartime and peacetime.  I couldn't have done it without you. You know who you are...

Such wonderful messages and images, Mimi. Thank you for hosting this this weekend, we all needed the sharing and mutual support and to voice our longing for the bombing to stop.

Sherry - It's so difficult to watch and absorb all that is happening. We did need this unity as a community. I hope it helped and we were able to uplift one another. I know I feel better. I just want to turn on the news and see the words "Peace agreement reached!"

Thanks for hosting Mimi! I heard about what you're doing from Ann at Zoolatry and wanted to participate but this is the first chance I've had. I can't watch the news (too demoralizing) but I've been following the stories of people who are stepping up to make a difference in the world and I wrote about one of them this week at Inspire Me Monday. I hope you enjoy the music I shared and I hope you continue to make a difference doing what you are doing! xoxo
