My Green Wings!

The Money Angel says: SUPPORT THE ARTS!

Where have all my wings gone? My favorite pair I lost on an air plane (left them in the overhead compartment)! Someone must of liked them because they were never  returned. Maybe they needed them more than me…I miss them nonetheless.

My other favorite wings I gave to my buddy Stewart because I had to move & he liked them. They were green. I had just won the “GREAT GREEN BALL” annual window dressing contest, fundraiser for the arts, in Asheville, NC.  My theme was “Give Your Green To The Asheville Art Scene”, so, I dressed as the “Money Angel” to support the arts. It was super fun!

But I’m wingless again! Back to the sewing machine…I’m ready for a new pair!

I’m on the road again!

I’ll be back and forth from DC to The Berkshires for the next 3 months!

My friends & family invited me…and since I’ve been depressed where I’m at now…

…some travel will probably be good for my soul!

Eventually, I hope to land in NORTHHAMPTON, MA. I LOVE it there!

While traveling, I’ll be doing some odd jobs, lots of babysitting, working on a video,

tweaking some books, cartoons & safe sex stuff  I’m working on

and of course…FACE PAINTING!

WOW! KIDS LOVE GETTING THEIR FACES PAINTED!!!

It’s wild! They will wait in 2 hour long lines…patiently!

It ceases to amaze me!

It gives me great joy to make them sooooo HAPPY from such a simple act!

Well, I’m off and those are my summer plans!

P.S. I may not be writing as often…but I’ll be back!

Have A Happy & Safe Summer!

LOVE

THE ART ANGEL ~ 5 weeks on the road…

The Art Angel Bethann Shannon painting facesThe Art Angel at Sizdeh BedarBlack Hills Park April 6, 2008Voluntering at Sizdeh Bedar CelebrationI’m just landing from a 5 week art/family and business trip in the DC area. It was really good to get away, as, I have been frazzled.  Yes, art angels get stressed out on earth too! Getting away was just what the doctor ordered! The weather was absolutely beautiful in DC! Perfection! Blessed with good friends & family! Lots of love from sweet children!

I traveled to DC boldly wearing my wings on the Greyhound bus. I handed out pet sperm when appropriate…O.K., if you don’t know me , I make safe sex awareness, sperm shaped products & cartoons… besides promoting peace, love & art…I work for safe sex awareness.

Both my wings and my sperm make people smile…and that makes me feel good.

That’s me in a nut shell!

A big chunk of my trip I helped my friends with their new home & their kids. Had to do taxes & other stuff with my business partner for Widespread Awareness LLC – Safe Sex Stuff.  The rest of my time I rested & visited friends & family.

The highlights of my journey were “THE FREEZE”, against the war, at Union Station. Where at 5pm on March 18th, demonstrators, walking around & looking like regular folk/travelers suddenly FROZE in place for 5 minutes to make a statement to stop the war in IRAQ ( similar to the FREEZE at Grand Central Station organized by ImprovEverywhere).

I’m not sure whom organized this FREEZE, but there was some time confusion…during my 5 minutes of being frozen, someone whispered in my ear “They changed the time to 5:30″…I wasn’t sure if this was a joke or an anti demonstrator or what…weird. Then another person whispered in my ear & I decided it’s true…unfroze & felt a little foolish. I wasn’t alone. Many of us froze at 5pm…we didn’t get the time change message.

I did not wear my wings during the first 5pm freeze but decided to wear them at the 5:30 pm freeze because I noticed many people dressed in costumes. Lots of people wearing PINK from the CODE PINK activists.  Oddly, I happened to have a pink scarf & a pink suitcase! I do support the hard working, pink wearing, peace activists at CODE PINK & get their newsletter via e-mail. It felt good to be part of a peaceful demonstration, with a group of humans coming out to say… stop war & violence.

It was a very peaceful event. I love the silent FREEZING! Very Powerful!

The 2nd big & fun event was Sizdeh Bedar, at Black Hills Park, Germantown April 6th. Celebrating the last day of the Iranian New Year, where it is bad luck to stay indoors! No matter what the weather is…you must be out & have a picnic! I volunteered to paint children’s faces at the event. All day it drizzled and it was muddy! But what FUN! Great music & food and a huge crowd! I loved it!

Hope my friends invite me next year!

Overall, it was a good trip!

P.S. Let’s stop war…PERIOD. Violence hurts us all.

We tell our children to “stop fighting!”…

let’s grow up & find creative ways to solve problems…all violence must end.
