Giving Flight Blog Hop

in our Giving Flight Blog Hop we are celebrating the 1st anniversary of our coming together via Kelly Rae Roberts’ Flying Lessons: Take Flight. To celebrate, we each chose a way to give back to the world in some way. It makes sense to do this because we have spent a year in this special space, giving to one another. The Flying Lessons Alumni group means a lot to me and is always a source of creative inspiration and friendship.

My choice for giving back to the world is to answer the Call to Artists for Prayer Flags at the Oceanside Museum of Art in Oceanside California. Artists from all over the world are invited to express their prayers and concerns in the OMA Prayer Flag installation at the museum. Each flag is created in the artist’s own style, then hung outside for a while, its words and sentiment dissolving into the wind and being spread to all whom the wind touches.

Here is the Prayer Flag that I am donating to the museum for their installation:

And here is the companion prayer flag that I am keeping at home to remind me and inspire me:

Here is a list of my friends the Flyers who are participating in this blog hop, with links to individual blogs. There are about 400 of us but not everyone has a blog or is able to participate in the blog hop. They are all here in spirit.
