Peace, Love and Understanding PEACE PROJECT EXHIBITION 2013 Original Acrylic, 12 x 14 inches by Laara WilliamSen 2013 (c) Copyrighted,

Thank you to all of my family members, to my wonderful friends on Linked in and to the friends I have in my everyday life!  You all make my days complete!  Without you I would not have the Love, Joy and Peace, that I experience in my life!

Early on, My Grandmother MacNaughton taught me to have Faith, Hope and Charity and she always told me that the greatest of these three is Charity!

Faith means to me never giving up and knowing that somehow we are all connected; one song, one breath, one heartbeat!

Hope is the essence of believing in miracles, knowing that the best will come.  It just has to!

Charity is sharing what I have with the world, freely, with a good feeling of doing the right thing!

I want you to know that I can’t keep this up every moment of every day!  But all throughout my life, during difficult times, circumstances have flipped around in my favor.  I just keep remembering to take it a day at a time and that things do change.  I am very, very lucky.  And I am very fortunate to have my family and to have met so many wonderful friends on Linked in, around the world and for the all of the amazing friends I have in my everyday life!

Thank you so much all of you!  I send you each of you my wish for you to have lots of  LOVE, JOY AND PEACE now and in 2014!

Recently I met a wonderful new friend on my Linked in network!


Her name is Sylvia and she lives in France.  She introduced me to a project

smiles project france, S.A.B.+M.Wysoczynski JUST PRESS TO VISIT THE SITE

24 rue Arnaud Miqueu 33000 Bordeaux France

This  project was started by M. Wysocrzynski in Poland and is now spreading around the world.  This very simple idea is to share a drawing of a SMILE, and then it will be placed into the hospital wards of sick children!


There you go!  How easy is that!  So I drew three Smiles with pastels and sent them to Sylvia and now they are going to be displayed in the Children’s Hospitals!   It felt wonderful to contribute to this worldwide offering to hopefully bring a bit of cheer to little children who are suffering from terminal illnesses.

You can join too. Here is Sylvia’s message to you!

a genious idea came from  Poland that passed time, front eras and any differences which will be exhibited on the hospital walls providing children smiles from the world of the healthy and which is exhibited in cultural centers offering every visitor a tour of happiness guaranteed through a gallery of amazing dedications – happy.
This idea –  Smiles Project for Children originated from Marek Wysoczynski the Cultural Director of the Agency for Cultural Promotion, Gdansk and has already collected over 10,000 smilies worldwide on the occasion of its cultural tours. Little by little, smiles on a wall was created, little by little ambassadors of other countries first around Poland, then in the East will be organized exhibitions with him, either in hospitals or in places of cultural and artistic offered the public.
By responding to his invitation to add my artistic « smile »for the Smiles Project Marek Wysocsynski that this collaboration of art, culture and philosophy has come.

I’ve got a wonderful friend,who is going through a major life transition.  I call these times of change “Train Crashes!”  Even though I accept her just as she is ,today, she was looking for some guidance.  Before we hung up the telephone, she was laughing very loudly!  I asked her to go to the mirror and practice smiling and making her eyes light up!  I once heard that Goldie Hawn was driving a car and when she looked in the rear view mirror she noticed her eyes weren’t twinkling, so I think she pulled the car over and as she put it, “I needed to stop and see, really see everything!”  I am paraphrasing here.  So this is what I asked my friend to do.

“Sing a little song,” I suggested to my friend.  It is impossible to stay depressed while singing!  Anything will do; You are my Sunshine, On Top of Old Smoky, Days of Wine and Roses, In the Arms of an Angel, Up against the Wall, whatever just belt out the song.  Some neighbours will probaby love to hear you!

Tonight she called me to let me know that it worked!  Amazing that smiling and twinkling eyes and singing can quite often change our mood and return us to a peaceful state of mind!

So come on world, let’s all try it….smile, notice what’s around us and sing, sing, sing!

Could the beginning of world peace be this simple.  Soldiers smiling and singing and smiling.  Politicians singing, maybe even whistling a little tune.  Corporate executives smiling, singing, singing.

Hey, wait a minute!  This is more than a pastime.   Isn’t it just possible that singing may be contagious and if it is…..well who knows what might happen next!
