A Connecting Act of Kindness


Beautiful mountain breezes and pine trees with a rushing stream began my weekend at a Yoga Retreat put on by Lisa Harris. I taught a craft class at Camp de Benneville Pines near Jenks Lake, CA.

The participants each created a mail art piece. They collaged magazine images, text and fabric scraps onto the back of their #10 envelope. Students also wrote an encouraging thought to place inside the envelope.

The idea was to gather images and words that spoke to you that day. Much care was put into each creation. When completed, the students gave up their own mail art as a gift to someone else in the class. Each person received a wonderful message and a beautiful mail art piece. This picture shows two of the gifts. A day to share joy.
