Words that flow...

Words and images - powerful elements of our everyday life. Most of the time we take them for granted, but sometimes something happens to make you aware of how important they are... and how thankful you are to have the opportunity to use or appreciate them. Here lies some of my words and pictures (which are untouched apart from cropping, unless I've said otherwise) - Please add your words to mine, and leave a comment. Thanks for visiting!

Peace #5 and #6

Ok, so I missed a day! :-(

But it wasn't because I wasn't thinking peaceful thoughts. Oh no. It was precisely because I was!

Yesterday, I was lost in the creation of a new blog, Peace Bloggers Unite, which is simply a long, long list of all the Dona Nobis Pacem posts I've visited this November! I've been to Mimi's site before, and delved into posts there, but as I was listing the one's I've been to, ready to send the links to Mimi, I had this thought that it would be really cool to simply list all the peace posts in one place, on one page, so you can click anywhere within that page and meet a fellow peace blogger and read their post...

And then the school closed, and I got sent home from work because of the snow. Seriously, I had loads of things I could be doing, and loads of things I should be doing, but there's something a little naughty about not being at work on a work day, like skiving when a teenager, and I sat at my computer and played....

First I made a tapestry of all the Peaceglobes Mimi had in her November 2010 gallery...that was so cool seeing all those Peaceglobes together in one place I just couldn't stop. I figured that all the folks who've participated in the past also deserved to have their Peaceglobe made into a tapestry. I know there was a blogger in the past who did an amazing Peaceglobe a while back (really, it was amazing...all the Peaceglobes in the shape of one big Peaceglobe!), but I simply wanted to try and get all the Peaceglobes in Mimi's gallery in one place, along with all the links...so... what started off with just a little time-wasting ended up taking a good many hours!! But I think they look grand in the sidebar of the new blog :-D

Here they are all put together (click on the picture, and when you hover over you'll see a magnifying glass...click again to actually see the Peaceglobes...but the you can see the ones in the sidebar better. This one's really reduced to fit them all in. :-) )

I also found some new peace posts to read I hadn't read before (and I've read more than 250!) and added them to the list.... check it out!

I think that that counts as 'thinking' peace and 'doing' peace :-D (hence the #5 and #6 hee hee)

And then I enjoyed the snow in the evening, as it was getting dark (sledging didn't happen until 9pm!! in the dark! lol)

I call these "Dark and Light" (such a complicated name :-) )
