"Someone once gave me a poem with a line in it that offers a good definition of peace: 'Softening what is rigid in our hearts.' -- Pema Chodron, Practicing Peace in Times of War.

  2. I read that on her blog today and also thought it was a most amazing quote!
    I needed to make a long over due visit here and browse through your art and soak in the peacefulness of it all! AND to drop off some love and hugs too!
    XOXOXOXO
