These are some of the children watching a memorial dance. Look at the condition of their clothing--they are no more than rags.
The villagers pulled Taylor into the dance. The look of pure happiness makes my heart grin. I know he is going to come back a changed man.
Here is a hut that they actually live in. Taylor says the children treat him like a celebrity
Breath taking beauty and such poverty at the same time.
I put this picture on my computer as the wallpaper to remind me how many things we take for granted, how many things we feel entitled to, and how truly blessed we are.

This first one shows the end of the road...note the current. The second one shows the golf course bridge. It is hard to see but there is a boat parked beside it and the railings of the bridge go right into the water. People are still golfing they just skip that first hole and are parking up by the highway.
This is the bridge to get to the campground. Lots of debris backed up.

Step 5: Put and Easter colored kiss, using a pop dot, as the center and add some of the leaves.
Step 6: Fill vases (I got mine at the dollar store) with spring colored M&Ms and insert flowers
Optional step: I made matchbook cards and clipped them to the vase.This was the inspiration for my project.
I gave these two my friends who were in the community play this year. It always amazes me how many flowers and gifts are given at the play.
Here you can see two tables filled. There were eight tables in all.

Scarlet, crimson, burgundy, ruby, rose, rouge, brick, blood red, blush, fire engine red, flame. Red is hot. It's a strong color that conjures up a range of seemingly conflicting emotions from passionate love to violence and warfare. Red is Cupid and the Devil.
Red is sweetness like a candied apple or a big fat red juicy strawberry.
The fullness of another's lips pressing against yours.
Red is good.

Take green for example: this time of year I'm thinking of the greeness of spring.
