Prayer flags at Tiger’s Nest, BhutanMy way of saying thank you to Kelly who has treated us to her trip to Bhutan on her wonderful blog Compass and Camera, which she has posted every day since we all started sheltering in place, with her wish to add “a bit of light to the darkness as we get through the pandemic together.” The title perfect happiness is explained in Kelly’s post yesterday Tiger’s Nest, Bhutan, which I recommend everyone should read and enjoy.
Thank you Kelly for lighting our darkness these past few months.
Juneteenth 2020 19.6.20 Acrylic on paper 24″ x 36″
Inspired by the words of President Obama and in support of those marching for Equality, Justice and Freedom in New York and across America today, including here in Vancouver.
“Juneteenth is a time to recommit ourselves to the work that remains undone. We remember that even in the darkest hours, there’s cause to hope for tomorrow’s light.” Barack Obama, 2016.
After the sublime performance at the Royal Opera House today of the world premier of a new work choreographed by Wayne McGregor to Strauss’ Morgan danced by Francesca Hayward and Cesar Corrales, the company all took a knee in support of Black Lives Matter; a powerful and moving moment. Watch it on YouTube for the next 14 days and be moved too.
