A Change is in the Wind

I'd like to interrupt the regularly-scheduled posting for a moment to discuss hope, change and optimism.

Brothers and sisters, we are all one. Or as Obama eloquently puts it: "We have a stake in one another, and what binds us together is greater than what drives us apart." From The Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama. Image from Amazon.

Can you feel the change in the wind? Certainly everyone feels its necessity. Change need not be feared, but looked upon with optimism. This is an exciting time.

Image from Is Barack Obama the Messiah? If you like propagandist art, you will love this blog. But please place your tongue firmly in cheek before pressing this link. Just take it as fun. Remembering these words by Barack will help sort out any rhetoric: "Any challenge to convention harbor[s] the possibility of its own excesses and its own orthodoxy."

Obama is a leader who is relevant to our time. To be willing to take on the daunting tasks ahead is beyond courageous. So, on November 4 remember to:

And hey, super heroes who recognize the need for change - we must remember to protect and support Obama during the difficult opportunites ahead. We must be compassionate with each other, it's not only the right thing to do, but it is what will save us.

Okay, I know this is supposed to be a blog about creativity and art. But in my opinion all art is political, and politics is art. All paths lead to the same place. We are all one.

More chick art tomorrow.
