WPC: Finding Harmony Amidst Strife
Logically, harmony must come from the heart… Harmony very much based on trust. As soon as use force, creates fear. Fear and trust cannot go together.–Dalai Lama
This quote by the Dalai Lama seems particularly apt this campaign season. Are you weary like me from the hourly bombardments by our political candidates? The mud slinging? The juvenile insults? Is your deepest wish for harmony between the warring factions in our world?
Since harmony is our theme this week
, I am going to stop “talking” and give you a quiet moment to take a deep breath and enjoy some photos and quotes, which can “speak” for themselves. They were shot on the beach in Hollywood, Florida, at the Van Gogh’s Bedrooms Exhibit
at The Art Institute of Chicago, and the Japanese Gardens at Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Art is a harmony parallel with nature. Paul Cezanne
