Jakesprinters wise choice for Sunday post this week is Peaceful.  One of the definitions was unruffled and that certainly describes my friend Vickie and her companion Gracie. This is a mural on her garage door. I took the picture Friday and wondered when I would find a way to use it and, as it often happens, Jake’s prompt was waiting for me when I got home.

As word of war from all over the world greet us every time we turn on the TV, or for some of us open our front door, indulge me while I make a suggestion.  I believe it is how we deal with all with “the other” or that which is alien to us, that is one of the roots of conflict.  Whether it is a different species, race or gender if we respond in an  unruffled  manner upon being confronted by “the other” maybe we could begin to change the world.  Here is a couple of pictures from a Moon Party dinner at my house this fall you will some of the international students and there host families. Any place where we humans can experience diversity promotes PEACE ON  EARTH!  Even your kitchen.
