One from a series by Amnon Gutman on S.O.S.’s work in Crown Heights. A not-at-all formal staff-vote cast this photo as the overwhelming favorite. We like how it casts the neighborhood in a hopeful and positive light, and we also really like how it reminds us that summer is near!! 

Another thing I’m sure we’d all like (though I haven’t actually put it to a vote yet) is more good stuff like this for our showcase! 

Submit your arts and crafts and alla that to chcmcblog@gmail.com.

This was drawn by Edwin Shan on the L train platform. (Manhattan bound, I believe). To me it depicts two people giving one another the best of themselves, and honoring the best in one another. I particularly like the symbolism behind hands raised in peace, and not in anger.
If you have an image of what peace looks like in your mind, then send it in for goodness sake! Submit to chcmcblog@gmail.com and join our Arts To End Violence Festival.
Featured pieces will be hung in Ron Taylor’s gallery in Crown Heights. The exhibition will open May 22nd.

I acknowledge the privilege of being alive in a human body at this moment, endowed with senses, memories, emotions, thoughts, and the space of mind in its wisdom aspect.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do… And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
- Marianne Williamson

Show us how you shine.
