This work can be construed as a parable of the world to be. Covid-19 has come and gone and has left us with an urgent and lasting need to connect with others all over the world, as well as with ourselves and live in harmony with the planet that hosts us.  

 

This work advocates for peace and understanding with other human beings regardless of their colors or faiths as well as a change of our values concerning the environment of which we are part and are dependent upon for our survival.

 

We are part of Gaia (the Greek ancestral mother of all life), not as its ultimate rulers but as one of its inhabitants. Species have been known to disappear if they can’t adapt. It is time to work towards peace, love and healing to redress the balance toward making our world more whole if we want to remain relevant.
