Letter-sign, Virtual Group Banner #1 Completed
Necessity seems to be the mother of creative invention and implementation.
We’ve taken the virtual banner idea and run with it here as a means to reach out, keep perspective of what is important and feel some sense of solidarity as we reflect in appreciation, concern and hope for our beautiful and fragile planet.
Life is precious in its myriad of forms and together it forms a beautiful, complex tapestry in which we are privileged to be a part.
Let’s honor that as we celebrate our Earth today and every day.
