I have set a date to read the "Woven Voices" messages out loud.
On Friday July 11th at noon, I will be in Market Square, Portsmouth, NH. My friend Bill Rogers has graciously volunteered to help me by videoing this event. A heartfelt blessing to him.
So please join me in reading these messages out loud. You will be moved and inspired by the words of the over 400 messages.
Please come for a few minutes or the whole time (not sure how long this will take!). Please bring friends and colleagues. I want many voices to read these messages.
I am excited to move this project forward!
And of course new messages are welcome!
Send them to me at P.O. Box 452, York, ME 03909

These words "My hope for the world..." begin the paper prayer by an eight year old. He hopes that there is less hunger. How simple.
The little girl on the left is holding her clothespin person. I worked in a school in MA this week, creating a Mandala Community Weaving. Her little person is a reflection of herself as an artist. Hopeful and filled with joy. This is a positive message in another form.
My wish for today is that one more family will go to sleep with full bellies and that all children have big dreams rich with possibility.
I continue to solicit messages of hope and peace. No date set yet to read them. But will have a date by the end of the week.
