On May 30th, I decided to create one angel painting a day for the month of June in support of the love, healing, and change that is so desperately needed in the U.S. and the world right now. I titled this angel "The World is on Fire."
For me, angels are not bound by religious theologies, but are simply representative of unconditional love and *"the better angels of our nature" that lies within us all. Right now I think my angel is on fire, but it is the fire of enlightenment, in support of so many oppressed people who are crying out right now for the world to finally wake up. It's time we listened to them.
Black Lives Matter ~ Women Matter ~ The Environment Matters ~ All Life Matters ....
I looked up where I got the phrase "better angels of our nature". It was from Abe Lincoln. Check it out!
"I am loath to close. We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature." ~ Abraham Lincoln
Can you believe that guy said that! What lovely words! Wow!
