Barack Obama is right on target when he talks about religion in the USA.

I am hopeful we can bridge the gap that exists and overcome the prejudices that all of us, to one degree or another, bring to the debate … No matter how religious they may be or not be, people are tired of seeing faith used as a tool to attack. They don’t want faith used to belittle, or to divide, because in the end that’s not how they think about faith in their own lives.

2. You can Vote for Jeremy.

The Brave Nation Young Activist Award was designed to celebrate a next generation of progressive activism. Too often the younger generation is overlooked and not given the recognition they deserve.

Where In The World Have I Been? Matt Has Been Dancing Around The World Since 2005!

.

I never knew about Matt’s dancing around the globe until I saw this video (from a link clicked on Towleroad). This is another one for the “I Wish I’d Thought Of That” category. What a totally cool plan.

.

Matt traveled around the world. StrideGum sponsored his trip (paid for it, I suppose!). And, someone shot video of him dancing everywhere he went. People from many of the countries he visited danced with him. This is definitely a smile-inducing and warm-spot-in-your-heart inducing video.

.

Watch it all the way through. You’ll be smiling and feeling happy inside by the time it’s over.

I want to be sure you see these stained glass suncatchers made in rainbow colors. I loved making them a couple of weeks ago. It was an experiment that turned out very well, and I am delighted with them. The angels provided another happy moment. There will be more angels in the days to come.

.

Enjoy!

There are more angels in waiting, but these are the only ones I’ve finished so far.

Here are the candle vases I’ve made during this recent flurry of glass work. They’re all made with bevels, copper foil and solder.

.

There are two small vases and one large vase. The large one is not yet finished. It needs a base in it. In the photo, you’ll see the candle in a plastic lid, but I wanted to show the play of the light on the wooden table. So, I’m including the photo now.
