Walking for Peace

 Walking for Peace was an amazing experience. I walked every single Sunday no matter where I was or what weather was happening. It was something to experience!

   Over the year I watched downtown Memphis transform as new buildings became renovated and folks moved in and families played on the street. I watched as Main Street became crowded with people doing things and having fun. I got to finally learn how the beautiful boxed plants were watered. (A city employee rides a bicycle with a large vat of water on the back and waters them that way. I never saw him fill it up but he must have had to several times to get all the plants watered). That was really neat to learn. 

It was exploratory adventure learning about Memphis.

   When I was a teenager I came up here every year for the Cotton Carnival parade. I was a majorette in the Leland High School Marching Band, under the direction of Ernest Cadden. I fell in love with downtown Memphis then and still love it today. It was such a bustling city to me being from a town of less than 6,000. I thought that I would one day end up in Memphis. And I did! It has been my chosen home. I’ve lived here on and off since 1968 and moved here the last time in 1992. Mighty glad I did, too. I love this town and the energy that lifts it up from all others, except maybe London. Maybe that is my next stop. I could dig that for sure.

     The peace walk was so important to me. I am so honored that I was chosen to perform that simple task for Spirit. I choose to lift up Memphis as much as I possibly can. That’s what The HART Center is about after all. Lifting up the Spirit of Memphis for all to see and love as much as I do. Peace Everyone. Walk a step every Sunday no matter where you are and think of World Peace Through Inner Peace.

Love Always All Ways.

      Ahhhhhhhh HART WORK. My favorite experiential process in all the world. This experience carries you into the vertical path to explore the depth of your psyche like no other process. Music, breath, meditation, and art come together in a framework that allows you to move beyond the time/space continuum into realtime experience. You really have to do the process to understand the experience. It is profound. You lie down and breathe and listen to music for about two hours, get up and capture the journey with art supplies and then process it in sacred circle. Come check it out.
