 My dreams for 2013?
I have many....

Before I say world peace
I would say give the homeless 
on your street corner
food or clothes
to end child slavery
or child slaughter
would be a higher priority

"peace" to me would mean
ending of oppression

from the bully who steals someone's lunch
to holding people of entire countries 
hostage with a certain idea.

I told you I have many dreams ...

My own dreams for 2013?
 no resolutions
but I would like 
to leave some prints in the sand

like inspiring some fledgling artists,
find out new ways
to help people with art

finish some of my  experiments
started with real leaves here ...

 to bloom anywhere
even if it's next to burnt or cut off trunks 


enjoy the flowers 
along the way more

let a sunset be
the end of the day

Wise words, I'm like to slow down a bit - I always feel like I'm going 100 MPH!

Wonderful, inspirational commentary here in your blog post. I especially liked the footprint image...nothing more satisfying that leaving your prints on the world today.
