Completely on the spur of the moment, I took off on the 12 hour bus ride to Manila yesterday. I am here co-creating with my lover Sarah, an extraordinary art project that celebrates the return to peace talks in the Southern Philipinnes this month.
I was honored to lead this workshop with Sarah and the Interfaith Youth Workers in Manila today. We expected 100 kids, we got 400+! Nonetheless, it was a great success. Using clay, rice and seeds we spread the raw materials all around to create candle holders for a peace ceremony tomorrow. We arranged the finished holders in a mandala this afternoon.
Tomorrow we continue with a ceremony to be attended by government officials.
