This week’s card is very personal to me.  I’m cautious about discussing politics on my professional website, but this artwork reflects how I am currently feeling about the world and the USA today.  In general, I am a happy, hopeful person. However, this past week, the immigration issue has weighed heavily on my heart. I am scared about the direction my country is heading, but I am trying to remain hopeful and optimistic that we all will get through this.

The blackness is encroaching on the horizon. There is still more beauty in this world than darkness, I really believe that; and that is what this card represents.  The “orange” color is actually yellow and red blended together.  Yellow for peace and red for blood.  Because, regardless of where you were born, what religion you practice (or not), the color of your skin; we all bleed red.  But we all also have the capacity for peace within us.  Let’s push the darkness down and have more sunshine in our world.
