February 1, 2014
Thanks for visiting the web site. I hope that your 2014 is off to a healthy and peaceful start. It's hard to believe that January is gone but it is.
We have some very exciting projects underway for Bridges of Peace and Hope. I'll be sending a newsletter soon with information about the "High Hopes and Common Threads" project which is connecting students and schools in many countries. As the culminating event of the project I will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa. Our daughter Maggie, who is now teaching in Tanzania, will join me on the trek and we'll be carrying a collaborative piece of artwork created by children to the summit. At 19,300 ft Mt Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and highest free standing mountain in the world. The artwork will express universal feelings of children and explore our common hopes and concerns. There will also be music and writing created for the project.
Before going to Africa in June I'll be doing some artist in residency programs, family concerts and school assembly programs. I'd love to visit your school to do one of my programs on respect, understanding, nature, empathy, songwriting, anti-bullying or a topic of your choice. I'd also be happy to come and share about our work with schools and children in Africa.
Please contact Mary Jain soon at 607-965-8983 to schedule a program, or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the project or plan a visit.
