Artsy Fartsy Friday~~~A New Baby and the Artwork of Belo




      Our awesome neighbors just had a baby. They moved in several years ago and ever since I've known them they have wanted, dreamed of a baby. Earlier this year They announced proudly that the baby they have been waiting for so long was finally on it's way.


A few days ago their dream came true. My husband happened to be outside mowing the grass when our neighbors stepped out of their car carrying their bundle of joy. 

         I remember that feeling well.

               So happy to be home.

                      and a bit scared too.

    I remember the feeling of wanting and promising that I was going to be the best parent ever.

             I didn't want to make any mistakes....of course we all know that that was an impossible task.


                           I remember when my second child was about 7 weeks old 9/11 happened....and I wondered....what kind of world was I bringing him and my daughter into? 


I wanted to make it better for them...safer and cleaner

I guess every parent wants that.





                   This brings me to today's Art by artist Belo.
                      
                         "To raise awareness among the general public about the global clean water crisis, the artist Belo created an image composed of 66,000 cups of colored rainwater simulating levels of impurities found in water all over the planet. This major work of 3,600 square feet, representing a fetus in the maternal womb, emphasizes the necessity of water, even before birth, for each living person." Quoted from You Tube description.
                    
                 


           Truly amazing



                    Have a sweet weekend....and to my dear neighbors ...God Bless and try to get some rest~ it's going to be a heck of a ride from now on!!!!
