The Children Shall Inherit



This painting was inspired by a photo taken by Mama P. As you know, the environment is a major issue with me and I can't help but worry for the innocents who will be left with the daunting task of saving our home. However, I have great faith in them as they are learning from our mistakes and some of them already have very strong ideals.

That's a pretty amazing picture, Pam. Our children are really inheriting so much stuff from us that is bad and could have been avoided...I wish we could leave a softer, easier path for them but I agree that many of them seem to have a more idealistic outlook and I hope they keep it.

Beautiful image. I worry so much, and I'm so ashamed of what we are leaving for them. Unconscienable (spelling?). It impresses me to no end when young people step forward to remind us of the environment. Sometimes I think if we called it "the mother," or "the father," we would act with more care.

Just today two of my 8th-grade volunteers asked why there is no recycling bin in our office. They are going to set it up for us next week!

What a beautiful concept, Pam! Your rising earth gave me goosebumps when I enlarged it.

Speaking of enlarging, I was very touched when you said you enlarge the pix on my blog. If you want to e-mail me at the address on the blog, I can let you know how to view them at the maximum size.

Lovely image. I never worried til I had kids and as they grew older, I started to realize what they would have to contend with. We are a throw away society and I think that is so sad.

I can see where my kids are more conscious then I was of the environment and it is good. I just wish more were like that.

Thank you, Pam, for being here and using all your gifts like you do. You inspire me and I hope I can continue to do that for you. Whatever that may be.

Stunning image! I too am very concerned about environmental issues, but I think that our current generation of young people have a lot of ideals and hopefully the energy to put those ideals into action to save the planet (if the current generation of adults can start caring more on practical levels so that things aren't even more of a mess for the next generation to inherit).
