Ese’s shoot/quote prompt this week is the word Hot….
And after seeing Cara’s unique (and “hot”) “glass dress” at the GACC Thursday night, well the next day I opened a Delancey Place email to find the coolest photo of “Neg Maron” (below), which is Haitian art sculpture that is a symbol of freedom from slavery:
This reminded me of an art show we saw at the same center (GACC) last July, which was a hot summer day, and oh so fun! My step-daughter was in town and it was the last day of her visit – – and our friend, Lucas, (from Brazil) was also in town — and it was the first day of his visit. Here is a photo I took:
The Haitian art show featured colorful paintings that depicted the vibrant culture and the gorgeous mountains in that region. The paintings also gave us a feel for the HOT climate in Haiti – and here is a collage I made:
So…. the quote I am choosing to go with this prompt is the motto from Haiti’s Coat of Arms:
“Union Makes Strength”
I like this saying because while alone time and solitude are a gift at different times, well – we also need people in our lives – they make us stronger.
We are better together.
Keep this in mind if (and when) social situations get messy!
Keep this in mind if it takes effort to love someone –
or if you are drawing boundaries and have to wait out some tough love situations –
Keep this “strength in unity” motto in mind at all times – because we really are better together.
