You can see the latest Nineteen Months contributions here.
Above is a slide show of my contributions to the site over the last three years. If you visit the site you can read the quotations that were placed with them.
Here are just a few:
“Know ye that the world is like unto a mirage which the thirsty one thinks to be water; its water is a vapor; its mercy a difficulty; its repose hardship and ordeal; leave it to its people and turn unto the Kingdom of your Lord the Merciful.”
-Abdu’l-Baha, Baha’i World Faith
“O banished and faithful friend! Quench the thirst of heedlessness with the sanctified waters of My grace, and chase the gloom of remoteness through the morning-light of My Divine presence.”
-Baha’u’llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah
“The sun is the same sun, no matter from what sign it may manifest itself or from what spot it may arise. Thou must look at the Sun; do not become veiled by the places from which the Sun appears.”
-‘Abdu’l-Baha, Tablets of Abdul-Baha Abbas
It’s that time of year again when the Peace Project is on, in the Whole9 Community.
Above is one of my entries for this year.
The theme for The Peace Project’s 5th Annual Call for Artists is “Peace Starts Here,”This international juried art competition and exhibition connects peace-minded individuals everywhere in the pursuit of a better world that art can help create.
They invite us to join hands with us and share our vision of “where peace starts”.
The Peace Project has accomplished the support of many vital projects with the help of artists worldwide.
They waive the entry theme for artists outside of North America and those unable to use paypal.
You have until September to get your entry in.

The above are part of a series in development on the inner poet. Hoping to make this one into a book.
I am combining the photographs with some artwork from my daughter. She’s pretty excited about our collaboration as well.
Eagle Boy is one of a series of collages.
This was featured in an ebook by Nell Arnold,
now sadly passed away- Discovering.
