A Hope for Peace and a Unique Arrangement

This thrift shop find is whimsically inspirational. A reminder we can make great artistry from inexpensive found objects. Such fun to browse secondhand shops and view the unique ways merchandise can be displayed.

Just remember to wear a mask and keep your distance as you seek cheer and support local businesses these winter days – so stores can stay open safely.

The dove and the upward reaching display behind it seems symbolic of our hope for a more peaceful and positive 2021.

Make time for not thinking about anything.

Be with yourself as you are, but without haste, without impatience.

“You should see my corgis at sunset in the snow. It’s their finest hour. About five o’clock they glow like copper. Then they come in and lie in front of the fire like a string of sausages.”

Happy Belated Birthday Ringo – Peace and Love to the World

Can you believe Ringo Starr is 79? His birthday was yesterday, and he’s still sober, still touring, continuing to release positive vibes into our world.

According to an article in yesterday’s Parade magazine, on impulse one year the ex-Beatle, lifelong musician begun a unique tradition of asking his fans, and hopefully everyone, to say “Peace and Love” at noon on July 7, his birthday, every year.

Perhaps “with a little help from his friends”, someday we won’t need to in the words of former Beatle, John, “imagine” a world of people living life in peace . . .

Happy Belated Birthday Ringo – Peace and Love forever, for everyone.

Pass it on!

Another enchanting discovery from my discount Christmas shop forays.
