Thank you very much Suzanne for this interesting challenge. We all  get to know violence  and it is very sad we can’t solve every problem but we can try to do our best in our own neigbourhood. I’ve found a nice quote of Robert Michaels that tells us how to start. I’ve put his words in a heart and tangled around it. I’ve just used different variations of Quandary.

Dank je wel Suzanne voor deze interessante uitdaging. Vroeg of laat, worden we allemaal geconfronteerd  met geweld. Helaas kunnen wij niet alles oplossen maar we kunnen wel ons best doen in onze eigen omgeving. Op het Internet vond ik een mooie quote van Robert MIchaels. Ik heb zijn woorden in een hart geplaatst en er tangles rond getekend. Ik heb alleen verschillende variaties van Quandary gebruikt.

    Peace is such a Quandry at times. It is beautiful.

    Ria, what a truly wonderful quote you chose for your response to the Challenge! If ONLY everyone felt that way. We who do shall continue to promote tolerance of our differences and peaceful coexistence. Your tangling of Quandary to surround the lovely ribbon heart is perfect. Thank you for sharing your art and your belief in peace!

    Mooie challenge..Mooie quote..Mooi werkje..Raakt ons tot in het hart.
    Er is tenminste al een hele groep mensen waarvan we zeker zijn dat ze dagelijks vredevol bezig zijn: “de zentanglers” .
    ‘Peace begins with a smile’ en wie glimlacht er niet of is niet gelukkig en tevreden als zij een mooi kunstwerkje gemaakt heeft?

      Soms mogen we wel eens stil staan bij al dat geweld, het is gewoon akelig wat er overal in de wereld gebeurt.
      Eventjes nadenken en er een werkje over maken, werkt therapeutisch, dank je wel Maddy, voor je stimulerende woorden…
