So, what is love in action?  When is love not a word?  For us it looks like slowing down enough to reflect on that question, and slowing down enough to see our own good even when we know we can do better, and slowing down more so that we can respond to daily circumstances in a way that is heart full, and slowed down even more to see the words in those words: ART-FULL
 
How is love in action art-full?  This is what we are thinking about over here and we hope you join us this month for art-full happenings.
