Happy 4th Of July everyone

Happy Independence’s Day everyone

Happy Equality for All

Happy Juneteenth everyone

 

Be joyful to be an Immigrant on this special day

For we are all immigrants

We all come from somewhere else

Even native Americans

 

Who lived in America before humans?

Animals and plants coexist

 

Humans moved to America

Wars have taken place in America

Humans kill for power not just survival

 

But Peace prevails

Humans can and do coexist

People even mix for Peace and Love

 

We are all the same Human race

Togetherness, Kindness

And helping one another

Keeps us Alive

Why be greedy or selfish?

For we are born with nothing

And die with nothing

 

Keeping Peace in your Heart

Frees humanity to explore possibilities

With Happiness and Equality for all

 

Keep Peace in your Heart Always

 On Sunday, April 4th, 2021 I sat under our rose tree in the garden with my work book and sketched some drawings.  The end result was a peace sign that I will use as one of my logos. It is a good opportunity, and the first time for me to launch my peace artwork on the 4th Of July.  By focusing on peace for the US and the world, came the message of, “KEEP PEACE IN YOUR HEART”, “LOVE” and “NATURE”. This concluded my wishes for myself and everyone on our planet.

Global Environments: 27 images that Prove we are in Danger

Global Environments: 27 images that Prove we are in Danger

“27 images that prove that we are in danger. #7 left my mouth open.”

Two weeks ago I posted my videos and photographs of Cherry Blossoms taken from the previous years.  This is because this month, April, is the time that Cherry Blossom trees in Branch Brook Park, Newark, NJ will start to bloom and usually by the end of the month most of cherry blossom trees will be in full bloom.  The condition of blooming depends on the weather.  If the weather is warm the blossoms will bloom sooner and if the weather is cold then it will cause the blossoms to bloom later. 

I just found an article from the Hefty website that John posted on his Facebook page.  I would like to post it in my website because it is waking up me from a day dream that most places will be as heavenly as Cherry Blossoms Land in Newark, NJ.  An article from Hefty’s website entitled, “27 images that prove that we are in danger. #7 left my mouth open.”  This will give us some awareness of our environment, educating us that if we neglect our planet we might not have beautiful flowers, gardens and sceneries such as those posted on Internet.

Below article is from Hefty’s website

27 images that prove that we are in danger. #7 left my mouth open.

Sometimes every word is superfluous. These pictures say more than a thousand words.

“When the Last Tree Is Cut Down, the Last Fish Eaten, and the Last Stream Poisoned, You Will Realize That You Cannot Eat Money.”

This prophecy is becoming a more and more brutal reality. But, even today, not every person is aware of the horrible effects our lifestyles have on nature. So share these evocative pictures with everyone.

Spring and Snow Ing and John Watts’ Sculptures Garden

April 2015 through February 2016

 John took some pictures of snow in our garden on Friday, February 5, 2016.  The pictures show snow on his sculptures, the trees and most of the objects in the garden.  It looked like the North Pole with beautiful white and the feeling of coldness.  It is in contrast to the spring, summer, and fall, garden that is filled with colors of plants and flowers, also birds, butterflies and bees.  Occasionally I have seen squirrels came in the garden to find food.  This gave me an idea to use John’s snow pictures of his sculptures, showing them together side by side with my pictures of our sculpture garden in the spring, summer and fall, when it is full of colors of green leaves, pink, red, purple, white, yellow and other shade of colors of flowers.  They are quite a contrast but I like them both, the pure white of snow and the vibrant of colors in different seasons. 

It is as if daytime when we are active, working, enjoy food, and company, going out having good time, and nighttime is to rest, in quietness, calm and cool and peaceful, resting with the sleep that is essential for life.

Snow on the Garden Chair

Snow on the chair

No one sitting there

 

Quiet time

 

Blanket of snow

Covers the ground

 

Time to sleep

 

Let snow drip

To earth

 

Time to rest

 

Drops of snow

Keep me alive

 

Show my beauty

After a quiet rest

 

I will be fresh

In spring

 

Someone sitting

On the empty chair

 

Greeting me

In spring

 

Snow drops

 

Snow drips

 

Giving me life

In a quiet time

My Snow Garden Beyond the Bars

At the window beyond the bars

I peak at my garden producing snow trees

Pure white from the sky

Snow keeps my plants alive till spring

  Shivering chill outside

 My plants retire underground

Mother earth warming

 Protecting the roots from freezing cold

Thanks to the snow that turns to water under the soil

  There is a way for life to survive

 When cold winter comes
