Get Well Flags

Moira  Hill sends this update: "Here are all the flags together - I've sent them to my friend, and they're now hanging in his hospital room -  he's had the bone marrow transplant and doing well! He will be in the hospital for a few more days and then will need 3 months of follow-up care. 

I left room on the last flag ("May I be happy") for people to write on it what makes them happy. He says that everyone who sees the flags is cheered by them."

finding happiness

Jeanelle McCall writes "Just finished some prayer flags that will be on the way to the Museum of East Texas. 
Traditionally, prayer flags are used to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. The flags do not carry prayers to gods, a common misconception; rather, the prayers, wishes and good thoughts are blown by the wind, spreading good will and compassion far and wide.

All beings that are touched by the wind are uplifted and a little happier. The silent prayers are blessings spoken on the breath of nature. Just as a drop of water can permeate the ocean, prayers dissolved in the wind extend to fill all of space.
May all beings everywhere
receive benefit and find happiness."

more prayer flags for Oceanside Museum of Art!

Linda Friedman joins us on the blog today, with 7 prayer flags that she created to hang at the Oceanside Museum of Art
Linda writes: "Although I’ve been creating prayer flags ever since I first saw the Prayer Flag Project in Jane LaFazio’s blog, I had not signed on to be a member. Only yesterday did I figure out how to add The Prayer Flag Project gadget to my blog but once I did this, I instantly felt like a bona fide member of a world wide community linked by hearts filled with prayers for friends and loved ones and humanity at large. Since I live within a stone’s throw of the Oceanside Museum of Art, I grabbed 7 of the prayer flags I have made and took them to the museum today. To see each of the 7 flags with messages, check out my blog post today.

Yes, everyone. The museum is still accepting prayer flags and hanging them as they arrive. I hope everyone who submitted a flag will have the opportunity to see them flying in a tent formation overhead in the Oceanside Museum of Art lobby. The heartfelt messages are very moving and the variety of outstanding art seems limitless."
