While rummaging through my overflowing stockpile of books, I came across PEACE:100 IDEAS. It seems that I usually find this jewel when I'm feeling uninspired, or I guess maybe it finds me. I never put it back in the same spot and so it's always a charming surprise when it reveal itself again. The book, designed by Chen Design Associates, was inspired by Dr.David Krieger and his list of 100 Ways to Promote a More Peaceful World. It is a visual treat from cover to cover, with simple truths we should all remember; each one matched with clean, sweat, and bold images. I love the presentation of each idea, and although every image is unique and original, they flow from each other with a perfect harmony. The back-cover beautifully ties everything together with a quote from Mother Teresa: If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
Here are a few words of PEACE to ponder.
# 3 - Recycle.
# 11 - Teach peace to children.
# 22 - Consider the larger implications of what you do.
# 58 - Clear Your Mind
# 75 - Say I love you more.
# 93 - Spend time in nature.
# 97 - Help make a wish come true.
