Recently Vivian Bonder of asked people who came to her beautiful blog to write something about PEACE. She had a gift for the piece she chose. She chose mine:

And this is the beautiful book she sent me...full of wonderful quotes about peace by famous people.

For instance: by Elie Wiesel Nobel Peace Prize, 1986

"Peace is not just God's gifts to His creatures.

Peace is our gift to each other."

and by Mother Teresa:

Peace begins with a smile.

Or Hermann Hesse:

"Within you there is a stillness and sanctuary to which you can retreat at anytime and be yourself."

Thank you Vivian. I am honored to be chosen and to be given such a lovely gift.

Remember also the hand dyed silk ribbons I purchased from Vivian's ETSY Store? I knit them into this piece. I may add some embellishments and make it into a wall hanging. The colors of the ribbons are so bold and beautiful. You really ought to check out her blog.


  1. Yes, yes, yes, to all you said.
    9mm is the equivelent....thank you.
    Peace and happiness

  2. Beautiful, Lynn, you are a beautiful person. May we all begin, and smile that first smile, even we don't feel like smiling, in moments when peace is in danger, may we smile inside and outside...

  3. Lynn, Congrats on winning the book with your lovely letter on Peace. I believe we will have that some day too.
