Peace Rock Mosaic

This is a rock mosaic here in Santa Fe. It is made from lovely smooth river rock. It is one of those hidden surprises that we found driving through some of our charming neighborhoods.
I hope you have all had a good week and that you find something peace-filled and relaxing to do this weekend.

Peace in the making

I have been creating some Peace ornaments to sell in my ETSY store. These are an example of what I've been working on. I have several others that I will post here during the week.
I hope you have had a relaxing and peace-filled weekend.

Wishing you a peace-filled week

This photo was taken about 30 minutes northwest of Santa Fe. The little church in the foreground is on the San Ildefonso Pueblo with Battleship Rock in the background. If you look closely you can see snow in the Sangre de Christo mountains. We spent this weekend on two art tours. Saturday in the lovely town of Galisteo and today in quaint El Rito. New Mexico is in its glory this time of year. I love everything about it! I hope your weekend has been relaxing and that your week ahead is rewarding and full of peace.

Rocks for Peace

Peace Wall

As many of you know I am a music teacher here in Santa Fe. My students have picked up that I am an advocate for peace . . . . I'm not very subtle about it actually. :) My students have been generous in providing me with pictures and notes about peace which I am enjoying very much. We've started a peace wall in my classroom. Here's a glimpse at the start of something beautiful . . . a peace-filled.

One Thousand Acts of Peace

I came across a new website today called One Thousand Acts of Peace (TAP). The site suggests that each person performs three acts of peace a day. In a year that's over one thousand. Check it out! Tell a friend! Who have you shared peace with today?

Peaceful View

I have an amazing view of the Sangre de Christo mountains from my classroom windows. If I step outside my door . . . this is what I get to look at everyday. Lucky me! The aspens are at the peak right now and on Saturday evening the ground received a blanket of snow. Time for mittens and scarves to come from the back of the closet. I love it!!

Where does the time go?

Hello!! Thanks for the emails from some of my regular peace-seeking folks! I am here, just haven't been posting as much as I'd like! :) I've been busy working on some school projects, trying to create some peace-themed Christmas ornaments and also enjoying the fabulous fall weather here in Santa Fe. I appreciate all of you and will be posting regularly again! Hopefully tomorrow I will capture some pictures of the new fallen snow in the Sangre de Christo mountains!! Yes SNOW in Santa Fe! I hope all of you are enjoying a peaceful beginning to your week.

Some fellow peace-mongers on ETSY have formed a group to promote peace through our art, thoughts and sharing of ideas. Check us out on Etsy PeaceNiKs!
