Happy Mother's Day!

On this Mother's Day - join me in thinking of all the mothers in Myanmar who need our help and consider donating to the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee:

UUSC has a long track record of outstanding disaster relief where other excellent charities may have failed. The have established partnerships with native relief organizations and have infrastructure already in place, able to receive and distribute aid. As I understand it, they target their work at reconstructing the essential local services, reestablishing their basic framework and structure, essential for longer term survival.

this has me thinking. . . .

HOPE (Hackers On Planet Earth) is held July 18-20 in Midtown
Manhattan at the Hotel Pennsylvania. Held every two years, this
three-day event has been covered by CNN and other news agencies for its unique
gathering of hackers and tech people from around the country and
sometimes the world. And HOPE needs your art! If you have an art project that has to
do with electricity, computers, data and information processing,
electronic music, and can be displayed in a public setting where
people may or may not touch it (we do have security detail), contact
daravinne[at]gmail.com with your project idea, and links to your site
or your project.

today - A collage

This is more digital than anything - I made the background by repeating images from some nice paper, added the drawing of the girl and the photo, then the two mailing bits, and, the words.
