Today I made some progress on catching up on some things that I to put aside the last 5 weeks as I have dealt with this stressful family issue.Â It felt great to get some of my own work done today!Â And I talked with my friend who is in Paris now – we talked for almost an hour and a half.Â It is amazing to me that regular people can do that now … really talk with people around the world.Â Fantastic!!
Speaking of which … she went to this incredible exhibit in Paris that has just closed .. to then move on to other parts of the world.Â This is .. 6 Billion Others by Yann Arthus-Bertrand.Â It was housed in a 4 story glass conservatory and it had huts inside … ok that was the least important part – but even that sounds so perfect!

They interviewed over 5,000 people and asked them to each talk about the same issues and then shared what people said.Â It was one person sharing after another and very powerful!Â There is also an online version that you will probably want to go check outÂ – 6 Billion Others (http://6billionothers.org).Â I have had a chance to only glance at this so far … but it is very exciting!
Such a powerful tool to show how we are all human .. everywhere on this earth. Here is one of my vibrant, colorful paintings! Thank you for stopping by!Â I would love to hear about you!!
