 Journey Notes

The theme for the month of January is “journey.”  If you have a favorite quote or poem about “journey,” or the journey of life,  please leave a comment!

Today I’d like to thank Nicole and Lisa, our volunteers in Denver, Colorado, for agreeing to hand out artist packs.  Thank you both so much!  We couldn’t do this without your help.

This is a letter that goes with the artist packs which our volunteers give to homeless creatives:



Just a quick note.  None of our artists or photographers so far are currently homeless.  Until we get this up and running, we depend on the contributions of everyone who cares about creativity and homelessness.  People have been so generous and we are so grateful!

In the years to come, we hope to feature creations every day from homeless artists and photographers.  Our new website (coming later this year) will have a forum where folks can talk every day to each other about their projects and inspirations.

When we link to others who love beauty, who are passionate about the things we love — even for a few minutes a day — we don’t feel so alone.

May you find joy every day on your journey,
