IMG_1010

Peace isn’t black and white, there’s a lot of gray in life. Things are messy. Should we be accountable for our behavior? Absolutely. Should there be natural consequences? Yes. But we need to see the big picture and forgive one another and have compassion for one another. 260/105 September 17, 2017 drawn on my tablet

you can’t do it alone. Everybody needs a little support. Everyone. A kind word or good deed can bring a little peace into this chaotic world of unresolved loss and uncertainty. 259/106 September 16,2017 an unplanned fence post installation braced with 2×4′s while the concrete sets.

there is an anonymous quote incorrectly attributed to the Talmud that I have been thinking about today: “we don’t see things as they are we see things as we are.” Peace has many shapes and forms.

I feel like I have lost the plot of this project and I am having a hard time finding my way back to the true purpose of this journey I started 257 days ago. Right now I think at its root peace starts with acceptance. We need to accept our differences. We need to accept our flaws. We need to accept our gifts and our strengths too. Accepting something doesn’t mean you like it or dislike it. Acceptance means seeing things as they are. 257/108 July 14, 2017 paper and markers
