is one of my favourite paintings, and
talks about a breakfast in a hotel
it says above -- it's available. It hangs
on my kitchen wall, exuding joy,
romance, and delight.)
Going about the standard routines of my day today, some not exciting
like doing the dishes, some so much fun -- like reading my good book,
I was thinking of how it would feel to have to walk away from my
home, and happy life. I had a student from Syria a few years ago, who
said you never recover from waking up and seeing tanks roll down
your street. And other students told similar stories from other countries.
All said how lucky they felt to be able to start over in Canada, but they
missed their homes.
The family came to make art today. So much fun. I always get inspired
by the activity. Get out the materials and art happens like magic. We rapid
tested first, and then wow!
We all needed to forget the news for an afternoon. Our thoughts are all
on the world issues. We want the war to end, and the Ukrainian
people to regain their peace. And we want peace for all people.
Have an appreciating your home day.
