Dear Friends,

The invitation of these blog posts from Designs for Peace is to join me in reflecting on various aspects of Beauty.  I believe there is great healing available, personally and communally, in contemplating Beauty.  Today, more than ever, it feels important not to add my energy or attention to the many conversations that promote anger, despair and hopelessness.

Instead, these blog posts are meant to offer you (and me!) an alternative focus--empowering thoughts and practices that will sustain more joy, meaning and hope for the future.  Please share your thoughts and these posts with your friends!

Since February is traditionally the month of Love, I invite you to celebrate the aspect of Beauty that is Friendship.   Further down, you will find a special gift I created for you to share with your friends.  So go ahead and love on your friends!  Delight in sharing your friendship stories together!  When did you first meet?  What have been some good times?  Hard times?  What do you value most in your friendship? What do you bring each other?  How has your life been enriched because of your friendship?

You could say that I have made a lifelong study of friendship.
