one night wish

Sorry for being a bit quiet here, I had a really tough week. But rather than remembering those nastiness and sadness, I came up with rather rational idea. In the middle of snowy town centre, on the first night of late shopping, here I went with a ladder and my angel work. I decided to present my art work to the community just for one night and do giveaway. Whilst assembling, some friends turned up followed by some general public stopped and asked me what I was doing and why. Explaining I was wishing those bullies would disappear from the world, angel pieces representing wishes flying out from the cage, the place where you don’t want to be trapped. People gathered around the work that covered with lights reflected by snow. I gave my angel pieces to people who came as a thank you gift. They were delighted. Rational action that night turned out a happy warm memory. Hope you all having a good week. 
P.S. Didn’t get the ‘wishing’ angel? Why not join my giveaway? Still open but hurry, will be closing on Friday 17th. xm

  3. what a good idea!! There is something so powerful about your action! congratulations!

    I'm watching the rain pour down in torrents and visiting with a few brave souls who came to my studio on the tour today. Luckily the road crew came by in time to save my driveway from washing away earlier, so people can still get to my studio!

  16. Five years later I stumbled across this post---(randomly leap-frogging through blogs, not even sure what led me here)--and wanted to let you know this post brought tears to my eyes--you came up with such a smart and practical response to the ugliness in the world:
    give away beauty!
    Thank you.
