We Shall Remember Them

The Ambient Wonder Rememberance event went really well!! It was Multi-sensory with a capital M. Rosemary to crush and sniff, poppy seeds to dip and grind your "french bread" into, fantastic soundtrack and the images projected onto a sheet hanging in the room were powerful.
An activity with poppy seeds representing the number of war deaths was profound - so many running through your finger tips - and it did not include the 140 million estimated deaths from democide and genocide that occurred during the context of military conflicts!??!? I was moved by the war poems that were scattered around the room.I also loved the response where you reflected as the crepe paper petal melted into the water and then lay it bleeding onto the canvas.
