Today I painted. Usually I am painting a landscape with color and texture of annual or perennial plants. But today some friends and I went to put a little color on the walls of Magdalene House.
Magdalene is a program of Thistle Farms and is a residential program for women who have survived lives of prostitution, trafficking, addiction and life on the streets.

And I came because they needed extra hands to get the painting done.
"Magdalene stands as a witness to the truth that in the end, love is more powerful than all the forces that drive women to the streets." The women I met inspired me with their stories of lives healed by love.
While there, I, of course, had to check out the pretty courtyard in home
with moss covered stones,
The added touch of these glazed mosaics pressed into the mortar was a fun idea.
