Fiona Dempster and Barry Smith send Peace into the world every year for the International Day of Peace
Their generosity of spirit inspires hope for our beautiful broken world
old and new weathergrams at the front door
and out the back
with deep gratitude
Peace & Love guide the way!

Barry Smith sent all 8 of his Talismans of Love for our Beautiful Broken World!
a few weeks ago Barry wrote about making these talismans over on his blog and they blew me away, now that they have arrived I am even more blown away in real life! Old Man Crow reckons the one with the beads embedded is like finding a treasure in an archaeological dig, like a future foretold fulfilling the dream – Love Is The Answer!
and talking of good magic
we went to Barangaroo Reserve to participate in the 4000 Fish project for Australia’s Invasion Day
to symbolically return 4000 fish to Sydney Harbour
“For the artwork, Emily McDaniel brought together the talents of four Indigenous artists who created visual, audio and sculptural elements responding to the story of the fisherwomen. 
Visitors to the site at Nawi Cove have been invited to scoop water from the harbour and create fish-shaped ice sculptures using cast moulds.
Once frozen, the ice fish are then placed on a large canoe moored at the end of a pontoon.
The warmth of a flame and the setting sun melts them, symbolising their return to the waters of Warrane (Sydney Harbour).”
carrying the cast fish back to the canoe
a way of giving back
a beautiful ceremony of healing for our beautiful broken world
deep magic is afoot
on so many levels

Liz Ackert sent a Peace Leaf made by Barry Smith wrapped in her hand dyed cochineal cloth along with peaceful words hand printed by Fiona Dempster, her finely stitched Take Heart safety pin and stitched my mending words into the blue for our beautiful broken world !
