Aurora australis: Where to view the southern lights and how to photograph them

By Sophie Colvin

Posted 13 Jun 2019, 4:51pm

Related Story: Conditions seem perfect, so why is it so hard to see the aurora australis?

Related Story: Aurora Australis ‘picket fence’ captured by photographer after five years of chasing

If you’ve spent any time at all on a social media, chances are you’ve stumbled across some serious #TravelInspo in the form of swaths of ethereal-looking green and pink lights in the night sky.

While the northern hemisphere — we’re looking at you, Iceland, Norway and friends — may have a monopoly on the northern lights, there is no need to travel all that way if seeing the aurora phenomena is on your bucket list.

We have the southern lights, otherwise known as aurora australis, right here in our own backyard.

For the weather uninitiated, ABC Weather reporter Kate Doyle said the process could be compared to that used in neon lighting.

“The sun excites atoms of gas in the same way electricity is used to excite the atoms of gas in a neon tube,” she said.

“When the excited atoms come back down to earth, as it were, they release their energy in the form of mesmerising light.

“You could say the aurora occurs when the sun gets excited and busts out the party lights.”

Experiment, adjust and enjoy

We asked our audience to share some of the places they have captured aurora australis.

And while the lights are most visible and occur more regularly the further south you go, sightings are not limited to Tasmania.

To photograph aurora australis there are a few things you will need:

  • A clear night — the Bureau of Meteorology has a space weather page providing aurora predictions
  • Set up in a position looking south and away from city lights to avoid light pollution and flare
  • A tripod, camera, and wide-angle lens (ideally f2.8 or faster)

To increase your chances of capturing the aurora australis in all its glory:

  • Use a remote trigger with mirror lock to reduce camera shake — if you do not have a remote try using a timer on your camera
  • Shoot in raw format for better quality photos
  • Turn your manual focus to infinity — test this on a clear, non-aurora night to avoid disappointment
  • Set your ISO from 1,600 to 3,200 or greater if your camera has the capability
  • Set your exposure from 10 to 30 seconds — longer exposures will start to show stars as trails rather than dots

Keep in mind all of these settings will depend on the brightness of the aurora, so experiment, adjust, and enjoy the magic.

Bruny Island, Tasmania

Tasmanian photographer, Luke Tscharke, has been taking regular snaps of the state’s solar activity from Bruny Island, less than an hour’s drive south of Hobart.

“The clearest air in the world also provides for some of the clearest skies, and when the clouds stay away it provides an unobstructed view into the cosmos,” he said.

“There is little that can compare to nights such as these.”

Cradle Mountain, Tasmania

Photo: Cradle Mountain is silhouetted by an aurora australis. (ABC Open contributor Jai Moyle)

In the heart of Tasmania’s wilderness and far from any light pollution, Cradle Mountain made an incredible backdrop when Jai Moyle captured an aurora.

“Never will I see a night like this again,” he said.

Breamlea, Victoria

Photo: Aurora australis makes an appearance over Bancoora Beach in Breamlea, Victoria. (ABC Open contributor: Clint Conn)

Surrounding light pollution, and its more northerly location, can make it harder to see the aurora australis in areas like Breamlea in Victoria, but if there is enough cosmic activity and the aurora is big enough, you might just be in luck.

Augusta, Western Australia

Photo: The lights of aurora australis glow over the water at Augusta, WA. (ABC Open contributor: Michelle Peak)

Michelle Peak spotted aurora australis from Augusta in the far south-west of Western Australia in 2015.

“The first time I saw it it changed my whole outlook on life,” she said.

“I have been chasing those amazing southern lights ever since.”

As bee populations decline, can technology help fill the gap?

PBS NewsHour   Published on Jul 25, 2019

Humans rely heavily on pollinator bees to sustain food production globally. But for decades, the insects’ population has declined, in part because of pesticide use. If the die-off continues, it will have huge economic and public health consequences for people. William Brangham reports on groups that are working on innovative ways to save the world’s jeopardized bee population — or supplement it.

The New Silk Road, Part 1: From China to Pakistan | DW Documentary

DW Documentary   Published on Jul 20, 2019

The New Silk Road is a mammoth project intended to connect China with the West. It’s a gigantic infrastructure project that Beijing says will benefit everyone. But this two-part documentary shows China’s predominant self-interest and geopolitical ambitions. The old Silk Road is a legend, whereas the New Silk Road is a real megaproject. China wants to reconnect the world though a network of roads, railways, ports and airports between Asia and Europe. A team of reporters travels by sea and land along the New Silk Road and shows how China, with the largest investment program in history, is expanding its influence worldwide. Their journey begins in Shenzhen on the Pearl River Delta. This is where China’s legendary rise to an economic superpower began 40 years ago. The private market economy experiment unleashed forces that allowed Shenzhen to grow into a mega-metropolis. The team takes a container ship towards Southeast Asia. Its first stop is the port city of Sihanoukville in Cambodia. A joke is making the rounds there these days: you can now travel to China without a passport and without leaving your own country. Sihanoukville is now almost part of China itself! The Chinese have financed practically everything built here in the recent past: the extension of the port, new roads, bridges and factories. Many Cambodians are unhappy and feel like losers in the boom. Rising prices and rents are making the poor even poorer. But for land and house owners, on the other hand, it’s a bonanza. In Myanmar, resistance is already growing. Locals in Kachin have successfully blocked a new dam project, asking how the Chinese could produce energy for their own country whilst leaving the locals themselves without electricity? The Myanmar government pulled the emergency brake and the huge Chinese dam project did not get beyond the first concrete piers in the river. The Karakorum Highway from Kashgar in China across the Roof of the World to Islamabad in Pakistan is one of the most difficult and dangerous roads in this breathtaking mountain world. Once the road is finished, it often disintegrates again, and rock falls and landslides block the highway as if the Karakorum Mountains are trying to deny China strategic access to the Arabian Sea. The first part of the report ends in Islamabad. ——————————————————————– DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

The New Silk Road, part 2: From Kyrgyzstan to Duisburg | DW Documentary

DW Documentary   Published on Jul 20, 2019

The New Silk Road is a mammoth project meant to connect China with the West. It’s a gigantic infrastructure project that Beijing says will benefit all. But this two-part documentary shows another side: of China’s self-interest and geopolitical ambitions. China’s path to global power leads through the legendary trade road. Our authors travel west on two separate paths: One team follows the sea route, along which China is expanding its support bases, while the other follows the ancient Silk Road through Central Asia. Their journey takes them through stunning landscapes and to magical places with ancient caravanserais, where the lore of the old Silk Road lives on. At the same time, they observe China’s overwhelming new influence in immense construction sites and shipping hubs. People everywhere are hoping the new trade will bring them and their children work and prosperity, just as the old Silk Road did hundreds of years ago. But others fear that a future dominated by China will bring them no good at all. “Clean water, the mountains and nature are much more important than the money they give us,” the filmmakers learn in Kyrgyzstan. Chinese investment has not only bestowed the country with better roads, power lines and railway lines, but also with environmental pollution, corruption and crippling debt. Oman is another stop on the line, where Beijing has taken over large parts of a new Special Economic Zone in the desert city of Duqm. You can still see traditional Arab dhows in the old harbor at Sur, but they no longer have a place in today’s international trade. Instead, the horizon is dotted with huge container ships, many of them flying the Chinese flag. Meanwhile, the French port city of Marseille is aiming to become the New Silk Road’s European bridgehead. A small container village in the hills above the city is the first step. Cheap textiles from the Far East are delivered here to the “Marseille International Fashion Center”. MIF 68 for short – 68 is considered a lucky number in China – is geared towards distributing China’s products throughout Europe. The two-part documentary shows the breathtaking dimensions of this gigantic project – one where, it would seem, no stone will be left unturned. ——————————————————————– DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Todd William: Why Keep Spending Money on Space Exploration?

With so many problems here on earth requiring our attention, how is it possible to justify spending money to explore space? One of the best answers I’ve heard to this was found in a letter written over 40 years ago.

This question was posed to Dr. Ernst Stublinger, the associate director of Science at NASA in the early 1970s. It was asked by a Nun, who felt strongly that the money would better be spent helping starving children.

As part of Stublinger’s reply, he told the following story about a Count from the 1500s:

The Count

About 400 years ago, there lived a count in a small town in Germany. He was one of the benign counts, and he gave a large part of his income to the poor in his town. This was much appreciated, because poverty was abundant during medieval times, and there were epidemics of the plague which ravaged the country frequently.

One day, the count met a strange man. He had a workbench and little laboratory in his house, and he labored hard during the daytime so that he could afford a few hours every evening to work in his laboratory. He ground small lenses from pieces of glass; he mounted the lenses in tubes, and he used these gadgets to look at very small objects.

The count was particularly fascinated by the tiny creatures that could be observed with the strong magnification, and which he had never seen before. He invited the man to move with his laboratory to the castle, to become a member of the count’s household, and to devote henceforth all his time to the development and perfection of his optical gadgets as a special employee of the count.

The townspeople, however, became angry when they realized that the count was wasting his money, as they thought, on a stunt without purpose. “We are suffering from this plague,” they said, “while he is paying that man for a useless hobby!” But the count remained firm. “I give you as much as I can afford,” he said, “but I will also support this man and his work, because I know that someday something will come out of it!”

Indeed, something very good came out of this work, and also out of similar work done by others at other places: the microscope. It is well known that the microscope has contributed more than any other invention to the progress of medicine, and that the elimination of the plague and many other contagious diseases from most parts of the world is largely a result of studies which the microscope made possible.

The count, by retaining some of his spending money for research and discovery, contributed far more to the relief of human suffering than he could have contributed by giving all he could possibly spare to his plague-ridden community.

Full letter found here:
http://www.lettersofnote.com/2012/08/why-explore-space.html

With this in mind, how can anyone argue with spending money on space exploration given that less than 1% of the US Budget goes to NASA?

The Earth and Moon are like identical twins, made up of the exact same materials — which is really strange, since no other celestial bodies we know of share this kind of chemical relationship. What’s responsible for this special connection? Looking for an answer, planetary scientist and MacArthur “Genius” Sarah T. Stewart discovered a new kind of astronomical object — a synestia — and a new way to solve the mystery of the Moon’s origin.

This talk was presented at a TED Salon event given in partnership with U.S. Air Force. TED editors featured it among our selections on the home page. Read more about TED Salons.

Two Collaborative Murals by Pat Perry and Local Schoolchildren Connect Communities in Iraq and Maine

July 26, 2019  Laura Staugaitis

Detroit-based artist Pat Perry (previously) travels widely to create drawings, paintings, and murals inspired by the diverse cultures and landscapes of different parts of the world, often with an eye toward forgotten or marginalized people and places. Partnering with aptART and the Good Works Foundation, Perry’s most recent project took him to Maine and Iraq, where he collaboratively designed and painted a pair of murals with local schoolchildren. The two fifth grade classes, located over 5,600 miles apart in Biddeford and Slemani, got to know each other by exchanging videos and artwork. They then assisted Perry with painting their own messages on the new murals.

The resulting project, OPENING LINES, depicts a child in each mural holding a red telephone. Because their backs are turned, the viewer can imagine whether each subject is speaking or listening. Surrounding each figure are doodles and messages written in both English and Arabic by Perry’s young collaborators. Samantha Robison of aptART tells Colossal, “With cultural overlap across the globe unavoidable, the peril of stereotype can be lessened by individual, personal acquaintances across borders; a literal face rather than an idea of one. The most integral part of equality is providing platforms for people to speak, to create, to be listened to.”

The video below offers a glimpse behind the scenes of OPENING LINES. You can follow along with aptART’s youth programming on Instagram and explore more of Perry’s wide-ranging humanist work (including limited edition prints) on his website and Instagram.

Black Swallowtail Butterfly and Ing’s Garden

Captured by Ing-On Vibulbhan-Watts on Wednesday, July 24, 2019

At the Backyard Garden, Downtown Newark, New Jersey

I usually see Yellow Swallowtail butterflies every year and hardly see any of Black Swallowtail butterflies, but this year I saw this Black Swallowtail butterfly before I saw the Yellow Swallowtail butterfly.  I was lucky to capture the butterfly on my camcorder for only three minutes.  Yellow Swallowtail butterflies usually stay to drink the nectar from the Butterfly bush flowers for about thirty minutes or more.  

I enjoy all kinds of flowers but every year I wait for these large pink flowers.  The flower diameter is about ten inches.  The flower will last only one day.  If the weather is very hot then by the afternoon the flower will wither away.  This year we were very lucky to see a lot of flowers blossom.

These white little daisies have a nice character of their own compared to the other larger flowers in the garden.  They standout strongly and have a nice contrast to the green leaves around them.

Kai at the Maker Space room, in the Mezzanine, of the Newark Museum on Wednesday, July 10, 2019

Photographs by Ing-On Vibulbhan-Watts

The lady who takes care of the room showed Kai the big foam blocks that he can build something from.

Kai constructed a form of a tall building.

Suddenly, after Kai finished his building, he knocked his building down.  He seemed to enjoy it.  I think he was acting like Godzilla who likes to destroy buildings by knocking them down.  Kai loves to watch Godzilla movies.  He goes to John and asks him to turn on the Godzilla movies.  I have to talk to John about this instance.

Kai drove into his building and then he lied flat on the floor.

Kai wanted to play hide and seek in the hiding place.

Time to go home, Kai put the foam blocks back where they belong, but still wanted to play for last time.  He said “I will build the chair to sit on.”

Kai was sitting happily on his throne.

Ms. Fran Garrido, Early Childhood Coordinator gave me the information about their activities for children.

Monarch Butterfly, Saturday, July 20, 2019

Poem and Photographs by Ing-On Vibulbhan-Watts

Oh!  Monarch Butterfly!!!

You come to visit me again this year

You are the first one

I see today on Saturday, July 20, 2019

You look lovely as always

We are ready for you

With my beautiful purple butterfly bush flowers

All in full bloom

The nectar you need to survive to fly to your mate

And for you to lay your eggs

Your little ones of the next generation

The nectar is here for you

Thanks for fertilizing the flowers

Some will produce fruits

For human to consume

You not only beautify the world

With your pretty wings

Your also benefit the trees

Providing fruits for creatures of the earth

We need you

I am longing to see you

You make me so happy

Capturing you in my camcorder

For other to see

You give joy to me

My day is complete

Oh!  My Monarch Butterfly!!!

I love you

Blitzed: Nazis On Drugs (WW2 Documentary) | History Documentary | Reel Truth History

Reel Truth History Documentaries  Published on Jun 28, 2019

In 1938 a drug called Pervitin was created in Nazi Germany. This stimulant was a methamphetamine based pill, was available in every pharmacy and didn’t require a prescription. This drug was distributed to German soldiers during the course of WW2 and Hitler was no exception to these drug highs receiving drug cocktails from his personal physical Theodor Morell. This film explores the use of drugs in WW2 and looks at the potential effects that drugs could have had on Hitler, soldiers and the war itself.

TED Talks: The next global agricultural revolution,

Conventional meat production causes harm to our environment and presents risks to global health, but people aren’t going to eat less meat unless we give them alternatives that cost the same (or less) and that taste the same (or better). In an eye-opening talk, food innovator and TED Fellow Bruce Friedrich shows the plant- and cell-based products that could soon transform the global meat industry — and your dinner plate.

This talk was presented at an official TED conference, and was featured by our editors on the home page.

About the speaker

Bruce Friedrich · Food innovator

Six of the 50 Azalea Trail Maids gather under oak trees. The dresses come in six different colors, but only the queen of the court wears pink.   Adair Freeman Rutledge

The Dress Hasn’t Changed, But The Girls Have

July 7, 20197:00 AM ET   Lindsey Feingold

Photo Stories From NPR

They marched in President Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration parade.

They appeared at processions ranging from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City and Disney’s Easter Parade in Orlando, Fla., to the Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena, Calif.

They are the Azalea Trail Maids — the embodiment of old school Southern hospitality with a modern twist.

Photographer Adair Rutledge, a native of Mobile, Ala., returned to her hometown to learn more about how some girls are redefining what it means to be a symbol of the South — while they wear a 50-pound, custom-made antebellum dress.

To be one of the 50 Azalea Trail Maids, you have to be chosen — and only those with impressive resumes get the honor. The girls Rutledge profiled were valedictorians, National Merit Scholarship winners and even in ROTC. And the interview process is extensive. “A lot of them take classes and rehearse for years,” Rutledge says.

The selective process and preparation is meant to prepare them to be ambassadors for their town — a modern version of the Southern belle.

Once chosen, they represent Mobile for a year. When wearing the dresses, which can cost up to $6,000, they usually don’t speak; their duty is to smile, wave and have their photo taken.

Rutledge hopes her project will help people work through what seem like contradictions: very accomplished women wearing Southern plantation-era gowns while representing Alabama’s third-largest city.

“There’s sort of a disconnect between what the dress represents historically and these multicultural, highly accomplished modern young women who wear it now,” she says. “They’re not exact replicas, but they are modeled after the attire of the white Southern plantation-era elite, which means that they are the gowns that were once worn by the wives of slave owners. … I really want people to be asking these questions around gender and identity and race and the tensions that are created from being a young Southern black woman wearing an antebellum hoop skirt.”

A Collaboratively Painted ‘Mural of Brotherhood’ Stretches for Over a Mile on Mexico’s Border

June 26, 2019  Laura Staugaitis

All photographs courtesy of Enrique Chiu

Over the past two and a half years, nearly 4,000 volunteers have converged on the US/Mexico border to assist artist Enrique Chiu with painting a mural. Chiu began the project on Election Day in 2016, and once his collaborative project is complete, the “Mural of Brotherhood” will span a mile of Mexico’s border frontage in Tijuana. Shorter segments will also be created in other regions to connect the project to the southern edge of the border. The wide range of styles, including written phrases and more illustrative narratives reflects the diversity of those who have worked alonside Chiu to complete the expansive mural.

Chiu was born in Mexico and has spent 14 years living in the U.S., both as a child and as an adult. However, he re-rooted himself in Tijuana’s vibrant arts scene ten years ago. In an interview with Hyperallergic Chiu explained, “the murals spread messages of peace to people crossing the border by car or on foot,” and are “intended to be a final glimpse of hope for migrants risking danger as they cross northward.”

A recently released documentary by Alejandro Arguelles Benitez follows the project. You can watch the trailer below, and track the progress of the mural on Instagram. (via Hyperallergic)

A Child Peers Over the US/Mexico Border Wall in a Giant New Photographic Work by JR

September 7, 2017   Christopher Jobson

French artist JR just unveiled a new work in progress at the US/Mexico border. The large

photographic piece depicts a child peering over a border fence from the Mexican side, apparently in reference to Trump’s effort to rescind the DACA program which protects the children of undocumented immigrants from being deported. The artist is known for his towering photographic installations backed by scaffolding such as his pieces at the Louvre and the Rio Olympics.

JR will be in LA tonight at Blum & Poe for a discussion with curator Pedro Alonzo about “immigration in the artist’s practice.” Admission is free.

Our home planet is the third planet from the Sun, and the only place we know of so far that’s inhabited by living things. While Earth is only the fifth largest planet in the solar system, it is the only world in our solar system with liquid water on the surface. Just slightly larger than nearby Venus, Earth is the biggest of the four planets closest to the Sun, all of which are made of rock and metal. The name Earth is at least 1,000 years old. All of the planets, except for Earth, were named after Greek and Roman gods and goddesses. However, the name Earth is a Germanic word, which simply means “the ground.”

South Africa: cities without water | DW Documentary

DW Documentary  Published on Jul 4, 2019

By the year 2050, a quarter of the every world’s cities will be facing water shortages. Cape Town is already running out of water now. But the catastrophe was foreseeable: politicians have ignored periods of drought and the rapidly growing population for too long. South Africa is facing its drought of the century. Cape Town’s water supply is under threat because the metropolis is quenching its thirst with surface water alone. But climate change is making the weather more unpredictable and the reservoirs emptier. Those responsible are feverishly seeking a remedy. Can the worst still be averted? Fear of social unrest, epidemics and the region’s economic collapse is spreading. Only through the discipline of the population, who have limited their water consumption 50 liters of water per day per head for months, has staved off “Day Zero,” the day when the taps are turned off and people can only draw water from public faucets. The lack of water throws the country’s social divisions into stark relief: rich South Africans can buy water, while poorer citizens cannot afford it. The filmmakers accompany a special police unit looking for people wasting water in the townships and meet farmers whose very existence is at stake. It is a race against time and a fight against political sleaze. Cape Town’s predicament is a lesson to the whole world: by 2050 one in four cities in the world will be affected by water shortages. ——————————————————————– DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Thailand and the fallout from mass tourism | DW Documentary

DW Documentary   Published on Jun 5, 2019

Plastic garbage and the death of the coral reefs show the downside of mass tourism in Thailand, which hosted 36 million visitors in 2018. The documentary looks at the effects on tourist resorts above and below water. Ten years ago there were 20 million fewer tourists. Today’s mass tourism has both social and ecological consequences. Most of the Thailand’s popular tourist resorts discharge untreated sewage into the sea, and plastic waste ends up in the water. This is killing off the fragile coral reefs along the coast. The countless hotels and restaurants mainly serve fresh fish, so fishing boats are using giant trawl nets, which are also destroying the coral. The internationally renowned marine ecologist Thon Thamrongnawasawa from the University of Bangkok says 77 percent of Thailand’s coral reefs have been severely damaged. Meanwhile, the locals in popular tourist resorts hardly benefit from the huge numbers of holidaymakers at all. They work for the minimum wage and are often pushed out by guest workers from neighboring Myanmar, who are willing to work for even less money. Small local restaurants lose out when the big tour operators take their guests on all-inclusive excursions. The filmmakers first visited Thailand a few years ago, shooting enchanting footage of the still intact underwater world in many places. Now they are back there again to look at the consequences of unrestricted tourism – both above and below the waterline. ——————————————————————– DW Documentary gives you knowledge beyond the headlines.

Thailand to ban three kinds of plastic by end of this year

Published 2 months ago on May 20, 2019 By The Thaiger & The Nation

By the end of 2019 Thailand will be free from three types of plastic – microbeads, cap seals and oxo-degradable plastics.

Then by 2022 four other types of single-use plastics will also be banned – lightweight plastic bags less than 36 microns thick; styrofoam food containers for takeaways; plastic cups and plastic straws – according to a road map approved by the Cabinet.

The Plastic Waste Management Road Map 2018-2030 also includes an ambitious plan for Thailand to use 100 per cent recycled plastic by 2027 in various forms, including turning waste into energy.

The Cabinet has acknowledged the road map and assigned the Natural Resource and Environment Ministry to formulate a draft action plan for plastic waste management, so it is in line with the 20-year national strategy.

A chunk of the sun appears to have vanished. An ominous dark craft beneath the Shuttle Endeavour. And Hubble spots thousands of unidentified objects travelling faster than light. Are we being watched? Or could we ourselves be aliens from another world?

A beautiful photograph of roses from our garden was taken by Deborah.

Thank you very much Deborah for taking care of our garden when we went to Swansea, Wale, UK, for five weeks.

Now, we can enjoy beautiful flowers in our garden because of your help.

Butterfly bush flowers are blooming on almost every branch.

Light purple Flowers are contrasted with the Butterfly Bush and yellow Flowers with different kind of green leaves making the garden become lively, beautiful and tranquil.

Dainty, pure white jasmine Flowers in full bloom with a beautiful fragrance that pleases everybody nearby.

More beautiful pink roses are blooming.

Red currents have a lot more fruit than last year.

Kai enjoyed playing in the garden.

Kai said “It is fun to play with the fountain water in the summer time.”

Hey!  Grandma look! The yellow flower is bigger than me!

Ah!  What should I do to have more fun?

Hey!  How about I spray water on Grandma?

Grandma! Would you please come here?  I need your help!

I am going to get Grandma wet like me.

Ready or not here I come!  Grandma!  Grandma!!!!!!

LGBTQ Youths Comment on Ing’s Peace Project

LGBTQ Youths Comment on Ing’s Peace Project & the Photographs at Military Park on Friday, June 28, 2019

I took my grandson to ride his bicycle in the park on Friday, June 28, 2019, I saw two models, photographers and others.  They were taking pictures for the LGBTQ events by Wisetastie Productions. Gmail: wisetastie@gmail.com

Photographs by Ing-On Vibulbhan-Watts

This occasion makes me think of my Peace Project with LGBTQ youths at Hetrick-Martin Institute which shows as the following:

And artworks, during fall and winter 2012

Organized by Gabriela C. Celeiro, Bilingual Counselor

I love flowers, they are beautiful.  I wait for the weather to change till spring then I can go to my backyard garden.  I cultivate my garden seeing the plants rising and growing each day.  Then the magic will come when the flowers show up to greet me.  I can spend hours in my little garden.  To keep the beauty of these flowers in winter when I long to see them I take a lot of pictures.  Thanks to the evolution of digital cameras I can take the photographs and print to give to friends or make a slide show or movie.

 When I sat wanting to compose the finished artwork from the LGBTQ youth comments poster I thought of something beautiful.  I want this group of youths to feel beautiful just like my beautiful flowers.  When we feel beautiful then we feel good.  As long as we feel happy we can do a lot of things no matter what some people say.

Below are the sections of my finished artwork that show the written comments from the LGBTQ youth on “What does Peace mean to you?” on my Peace Project Poster that accompanies beautiful flower images that I took from our backyard garden. 

You Are Beautiful

Life is precious

Life is short 

Enjoy as much as you can

Try to be independent 

But ask when you need help

Help yourself as much as you can 

And help the others as much as you can

That is life 

As long as you try your best

Then you will be worthwhile 

Be kind and be happy

Because you are beautiful 

We are all beautiful

And we are all equal

Lead your life in a harmonious and peaceful way

Because you are beautiful to me

 Ing-On Vibulbhan-Watts, Thursday, March 28, 2013, 10:25 pm

Appreciate simple things around you

Minimize luxury life styles

 Be more concerned with conservation

  Be generous and kind

 Remove ill thought

  Broaden your knowledge

 Learn and do your best

  Understand things beyond yourself

If you are still dissatisfied

 Then sleep and after your rest

 Try again the next day

 Ing-On Vibulbhan-Watts, Saturday, February 9, 2013, 4:38 pm

Equality for All

There will be no Peace

Without equality

If the scale of justice

Is unbalanced

There are always reasons for oppressors

To put others down

At one time women could not own property

And could not vote

And slaves of all races could be sold like cattle

And others historically were also treated wickedly

Humanity has evolved

Using our brains and our knowledge

To progress and change

Change we must!

Equality is balance

Human Rights is for all

And equality is for all 

This will bring peace to the world

I am glad to know Gabby.  I appreciate her help bringing my Peace Project to the LGBTQ youth.  I even more appreciate her enthusiastic helping to educate the youth.  It requires a special kind of person to undertake the work that she does.

Hi Gabby,  

Thanks for the attachments.  I do love your composition about the LGBTQ youth.  Your writing helps the readers to understand the lives of this group of youths and how they can get themselves into bad situations and become homeless.  My love and my heart go out to these youths.  The help that you and your organization offer to these youngsters is to be complimented and should be recognized as a good example for others to follow.  

I am glad that you have the finished peace project artwork framed and exhibited.  

Please let me know if you would like to work on my peace project with the new classes and the new group of youngsters again.  

I hope you enjoy your summer.  Please stop by when you are near our shop.  

All the best,  

Ing  

PS. I hope you do not mind; I posted your responses to my email on my website.
