100 Flowers

“When things are abnormal, our obligation is to turn life normal and worth living for.” — Karim Wasfi

We live in a mixed-up and troubled world. It’s wearing some of us down. We do what we can, but to what end?

In a moment desperate hope, I took a piece of scrap cardboard and drew a flower. “What if I give it a way?” I thought. “Would the world be just a tiny bit better?”

What if I draw four flowers and give them away? Then would the world be a tiny bit better?

What if I draw nine… or sixteen…

…or twenty five? …and give them all away… Would the world be a tiny bit better?

How about one hundred? What if I draw one hundred flowers on scraps of cardboard and give them away? Would this  mixed-up and troubled world be a tiny bit better?

Karim Sasafi, conductor of the Iraqi National Symphony Orchestra, plays his cello in the rubble of bombings across Baghdad. This man gives me hope. I admire his resolve to make this a better world in the midst of chaos and violence. His work inspired my 100 flowers project.

I have one hundred 2×3 inch hand-drawn flowers on scraps of cardboard. I drew them for no other reason than to make this world a tiny bit better. Would you like one?  If so, email your mailing address to info@waynegagnon.com and I will send one out right away. I expect nothing in return.

I wish you peace and love, my friends.
