Peace Day #1 --- Aziza's Place - "Safe Box"





While the electricity was off the other night, Amanda and I sat in the dark too lazy to look for the flashlight or candles. As the cars and motorbikes were passing down the street, the lights from their vehicles were creating this movement of light in her apartment. As our eyes followed the light around the room, we discussed how peaceful it seemed and I said, "Life is like a box." And as you are all thinking now, Amanda replied..."huh?" I explained, "If we make a safe box, then it's like we have created a safe and peacful life." So we went and bought a huge box! This is how our "Safe Box" began. We discussed with the children what they think a "place" is? Then we asked them to come up with ideas to make our huge box a safe place. "Colors. Mountains. Lights.Aziza. houses. birds. rainbows. trains. elephants. lakes. Butterflies.clouds. trees.balloons."
And so they painted....
After the magical painting happened, we put the box back together.We all got to experience this new, colorful and most peaceful place with a flashlight! Do you follow?
Today was our first Peace Art day and we will have nine more for you to enjoy and experience with us.
Get ready to live...
Peace, Art, Love, Happiness, and motorbikes...

Brainchild was brainchild, our dream couldn’t been our destiny.
We live in blood and money battle!

Humor is that which most efficiently recognizes that we are living in an imperfect world, with imperfect arguments and things that are insane, illogical, and irrational. And the only way we can live with that fact is to laugh...
