Viewing the Earth from space, we will find out our home that we think to be safe is actually surrounded by unpredictable weather. We should adjust our attitudes and treat the Earth respectfully! Best wishes to you all.

I realized that Home is a place where I feel welcome. That might be my home here in Cheshire, CT or my Mom's in NY or at any of my siblings' homes in the USA. It also includes my home-in-law across the ocean in Croatia. It's a place where I feel relaxed, welcome and able to be myself.

Viewpoints 9-4: Word!

The English language has an estimated 1 million words, Chinese, around 370,000, and South Korea as many as 500,000. And we will each pick one for each of the next 9 challenges in Viewpoints 9's fourth cycle: Word!

As in the past, weekly updates will be posted by individual artists throughout the challenge, culminating in our virtual gallery.
