Wake the Sleeping Dragon – Nurturing the Divinity Within Each Child

By |November 25th, 2012|Uncategorized|

I am so pleased to be working with Darleen Wodzenski on her projct: Wake the Sleeping Dragon - Nurturing the Divinity Within Each Child Darleen explains the project: "The popular children's song "Puff the Magic Dragon" told the haunting but bittersweet tale of a child who befriends a wonderful and mystical creature, only to discover that the magic fades as childhood is left behind. More recently, the best selling Eragon book series by author Christopher Paolini depicted a trilogy of epic and enchanting dragon tales. Throughout time mankind has associated the dragon with an alluring power and mystique. The Vietnamese...

The art of the Broward County Humane Society's Walk for the Animals 2013 is finished. This year the art will be used not only for the advertisements but also on the T-shirts.

I AM the documentary

By |October 8th, 2012|Uncategorized|

http://www.iamthedoc.com/ I just watched the the documentary called I AM. At first the title sort of sounds deeply spiritual, but in reality the film (by Tom Shadyac) asks two questions: 1. What is wrong with the world? 2. What can we do about it? They look into science and observe the natural order of living things and discover that we humans may have gotten the idea of survival all wrong.

I think everyone (especially those in...
