Barbara Muir© 2017My heart rocks and rolls to the rhythm of the reality
my friends face all over the world. There is Diane in
India, and Alessandra in Paris, and sometimes Italy,
Miranda in the Netherlands, my friends in Toronto, and the entire
list of my blog and Facebook friends. And of course,
that also includes my family who are here and in California.
One thing is clear -- we are a community. We care
deeply for one another and do not want any of our
global family to suffer. As world travel makes
the planet shrink, it seems stranger and stranger to me,
maybe as a Canadian, to think of ourselves as one kind of people
and the rest of humanity as another. Someone put
an old song on Facebook -- We are the world, and to me
that is true.
I want to give thanks to everyone who has made my
life as an artist more meaningful with your kindness and
support. That means so much to me. Let's work
on breaking down barriers -- the way artists do --
and hold hands around the globe to express our
gratitude for this dance in the artistic life.
Here is a little abstract I did on the theme of One
World, or We Are One.
