Peace, originally uploaded by RobQuevedo.
We're closing with this one tonite...'nite Mary! (She says the blog is a nightly inspiration for her, how 'bout that?)

This is from RobQuevedo...he's a male nurse. Navy Veteran, two Iraq tours. "14 days without a shower here" he says below this photo.

This is from us: We see so many Faces of many beautiful Peace many pleas for Peace, protests about the lack of Peace, flags and fun and fingers and food for and toys and pets for peace...this photo brings home what it's all really about. We salute you RobQuevedo, and we hope if you're not home right now, you get there soon! Keep in touch...and we'll keep passing peace your way, 'k?

OK...I'm goin' out on a limb here when I say that once again, even with all the er, action in this pic, the eye still goes right to the two finger V sign being made by the Guy With The Hair...and the random other Peace Fingers being thrown by, you may not all agree with fact, many eyes may be drawn to other things...but for me that Peace Sign grabs me...honest. Hmmm.....I suppose it could also be that he seems to the only guy, and the only person with a shirt on...well, Peace Out Cub Scout!

Peace Is Not An Illusion

From Vermont Ferret:
"Peace Is Not An Illusion" cut into what looks like corrugated steel, installed outside the Crawford Peace House. Taken from my seat on the bus as we rolled past.

We...are Vermont Ferret's wonderful photos, and we congratulate him and Maggie and wish them a most wonderful next 32 years...together :)

Neat Peace :) How 'bout the fact that in this vast, majestic scenery the Peace V in slender fingers grabs the eye and the shot? Peace is pretty powerful...even in small doses!
Thanks for that!

...And did anyone else notice that the Cost of the Iraq War ticker to the right (the cost in dollars, which is just one way of measuring the cost obviously) moved out of the $480's and into the $490's since yesterday? It's a jolt to see that...a wretch....a yank....a yuck.

Visualize Peace - Day 28

Visualize Peace - Day 28, originally uploaded by staytunedradio.

we love what staytunedradio writes we're not saying anything else at all :)

Here it is from staytunedradio :
"I've done a couple of peace photos so far in this project. Tonight I noticed that I have a bunch of peace signs throughout my house. I knew they were there but tonight I guess I really noticed them more.

I've got a sticker on my front door window, another on my bathroom mirror, I've got numerous bookmarks and a small crystal cube. I've got the word "peace' in a frame on my wall. Heck, I even have a small cutout of Santa flashing the peace sign - he's set on top of a poster I have of Martin Luther King. I've got posters of my heroes on my office wall . . . MLK, Gandhi, John & Yoko and Jim Henson all share space in my home.

I guess I've given myself reminders galore - most I'm afraid to say, I ignore daily. I get caught in my everyday struggles and start judging others that don't see things the way I do. I sometimes see no peace at all in a world gone mad.

I hope in those times, like now, I recognize that peace is not a thing that "happens" to people. It's not something I can grab onto, I can't share it with my loved ones and I can't force it on my enemies. Peace is a force and a gentle stillness that lies within me. It is clarity in a cloudy sky. It is constant, steady, unwavering and true . . . and it is real.

It is mine - - always. I just need remember to see it."

Peace to Houston, a "found message"

Thanks Liz Henry! Welcome to the Project that'll have you seeing Peace around every corner...we even dream in peace symbols lately!

PEACE SIGN from Rock2Rye

PEACE SIGN, originally uploaded by rock2rye.

Thursday...I am WAY WAY late on getting blog one up there, and feeling like a slacker for not hitting at least 14 is NOT for lack of pictures or lack of enthusiasm or lack of anything except TIME.

You can keep adding all the photos you want...we WILL catch up!!!

Here's your sign! (Photo by DJ)

From DLTbluefrog "My message to all. I grossly under estimated the time, food coloring and to quote Arlo Guthrie..."implements of destruction" needed to do this job. It is approximately 120 Ft in circumference. I started out with a hand spray bottle....NOT! And it took a hell of a lot more food coloring than I thought I would need. It is between Exit 6-7 on RT 3 North in Nashua. Well anyway take my message to heart please! It was fun and cold... 25 degrees. Photo credit goes to DJ my 10 year old son. He kept asking me... "Isn't this illegal or somethin dad?" Question authority son..."

We are thrilled to add this Blue Peace to the the day...and that is a two finger v being sent out too folks....and we salute and bow to DLTbluefrog for teaching his boy to Question Authority in such a wonderful, beautiful, peace-ful way!!! Thanks guys!

blue., originally uploaded by actionafternoon.

Along the "Peace is Blue" theme, here's actionafternoon's first contribution to the OMPS project, and it's one that we all like a lot...

Initial thoughts were that the blue came from a "peace" of pool cue's got that hue about we're thinkin' paint, and we're wondering where the rest of the blue paint is...and why it's missing from the finger pads...and is that YOU actionafternoon, thru the V? What side of the camera are you on?

A picture is never Just a picture...there's always a story....

PEACE! And welcome to you! And pass it on!

"Hey, " we say..."Peace Floats!"

And we wonder : "Where's Everet? What was the float for? Whose idea was it?"

We like to see Peace on wheels, cruising thru town, with Peace People dancing on top...we imagine "Imagine" blaring from speakers, and lots of tie-dyed Ts....we smile :)

Ways to spread the word

A very cool way to Pass on Peace from Alix: "
Visual space. Pollution. Why not fill as much space with positive messages? Try to write Peace messages on all my mail. Inexpensive, effective way to spread love and light. Little things add up."

We agree! Cool idea...what about getting a bunch of stickers made up with your fave Peace Quote and sticking them on the back of letters, bills, etc....Maybe we have a Peace Artist around here who'd come up with an example and we could flood VistaPrint with some Peace Label the meantime, we'll pull out the Sharpies :)

Susan sent this pic from Poway.

Today was a VERY good day! Traffic was fairly light, but honks and other positives were many ... greatly increased by Ellen's "Honk for Peace" sign, and the fact that we had people on all four corners, (and "Chuck" honking, of course!) It was cool and windy, but NO RAIN during our rally.

We had 20 people ... and two were new.

I want to once again mention this excerpt from Barb's comments last week, about what people in the vehicles passing by are thinking. Forgetting the negative thoughts that might exist, maybe there are some thinking this as they read our signs, and especially when they see our large group in inclement weather:

"There are people out here who are thinking what I am thinking." That is enormously comforting to people. To see us here week after week after week, staunch and unmoving, has to multiply the comfort effect tenfold. They know we are not summer soldiers on this.

Love that thought.

Madison's Copy Of Volume 3 Of Jean Nicolas Démeunier's Économie Politique Et Diplomatique, As Depicted By Sculptor Walter Kirtland Hancock In The Library Of Congress James Madison Memorial Hall (Washington, DC)

takomabibelot comments :
Perhaps open to Thomas Jefferson's contribution, "États Unis de l'Amérique"?

My favorite of the eight Madison quotes inscribed on the walls of the room:

"War contains so much folly, as well as wickedness, that much is to be hoped from the progress of reason, and if anything is to be hoped, every thing ought to be tried."

-- According to Bartelby, this is from his “Universal Peace,” National Gazette, February 2, 1792.—The Writings of James Madison, ed. Gaillard Hunt, vol. 6, pp. 88–89 (1906).

We comment: We'll leave you with that to chew on this Sunday evening...'cuz even peace zealots need their beauty sleep, and we are in need... :) PEACE to you all! What a great week of photos!!
