Planting Peace in Avila, Spain-March 22, 2008

Saturday, March 22, 2008
Up until this day, everything was an adventure – full of magic, as if an outside energy was guiding us and putting everything into place.

We found a centenary wood beam from an old mainstay house and Juan Carlos, a “brother” of ours and a very fine craftsman, hand carved more than 100 letters into the Peace Pole to complete the prayer MAY PEACE PREVAIL ON EARTH in four languages: Spanish, English, French and Portuguese. A pyramid shape sculpture crafted in Argentina adorns the Peace Pole.


Edgar Ocaña, a talented musician, decided to compose a hymn in honor of the dedication ceremony…what a beauty…such lovely music…the melody spoke to us of Peace! Other musicians began to participate, in their own creative style and finally to our amazement, Diego Cruz, a talented songwriter and a kind-hearted being, decides to sing! 30 people joined us, all of who are special friends, sharing a commonality in spirituality!


We sang, danced and enjoyed a marvellous evening.

I run out of adjectives and I am overwhelmed with emotion. I only can say THANK YOU!
