I’m excited to have several new pieces soon to be available exclusively from the wonderful UK-based children’s art gallery The Little Picture Company.
Occupy Wall Street in Time Square this past weekend. My experience of it was an embracive and excited gathering, fueled by a desire to affect change and be heard. There was no visible anger. This wasn’t a witch hunt. People were there in an effort to remind those who speak for us that things cannot go on as they have been.
It’s interesting that The United States has been a model for democracy to the world. Now that we’ve seen the people in countries like Egypt take to the streets it’s inspired us to do the same. The reverberation that’s happening among the populous here and in other around the world, rising up to be actively involved in the conversation of making a country what it is. It’s good. It’s not without flaws of course, but all in all, this needed to happen. For the corporatization of our democracy. For a biased media. The connectivity that has come with the legacy of the internet hasn’t completely holed us indoors living a life of quite desperation. In fact, we’re now seeing the opposite. The Occupation is spreading and it could be the push into a new era. We want to be there for each other. We want to be united. We want our countries to work.
Thomas Jefferson agrees.
