Thank you Fulgorine

I have been distressed by the latest attacks in Paris. I don’t know what the solution is, but I know it is NOT more hatred, vengeance or bombs. I have made myself a polymer clay ring featuring the white poppy, a symbol of peace.

It is a reminder to me to pray for forgiveness, understanding and love.

It’s pretty chunky, but that is okay because it means it reminds me often during the day. 🙂

I know I can’t change the minds* of the terrible minority with their fingers on deadly buttons, but perhaps it will help me to transform my own fear into something more positive.


* Especially since I believe trying to force other people to change their minds is part of the problem.

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

Please do comment! That's part of the fun...
