Breathtaking Photographs

RT@ EdMercerThese are some awesome b+w photographs.

Healing Arts

The arts allow avenues of expression for those suffering from mental illness. Mental illness is a level playing field. It has no cultural or socio-economic boundaries. Painting, writing, singing, playing instruments, moving, dancing, acting, drawing, poetry, & more - the arts lets everyone be who they are, express what they are feeling and sort through what they are thinking in the moment. The arts can help soldiers make the transtition from war to home and can help raise the spirits of anyone who feels alone or abandoned. The arts should be part of every mental health facility or organization.

Stations Two - Photos by James Neel

The trip from Dallas to Rwanda was the first connection in the world wide network. Nancy Rebal presented STATIONS TWO, at the international Gathering of Forgiveness and 15th year commemoration of the genocide in Kigali Rwanda. STATIONS artists (Nancy Rebal, James Neel, Tim Coursey and David Searcy) teamed with “Gardens of Forgiveness”, New York City and “Mizero”, children of Rwanda. STATIONS TWO is a black 6 foot cube of recycled plastic. The surface serves as a chalkboard for people to write their will to forgive. Microphones gather the voices of the will to forgive. The recording are returned to home base on a flash drive to be edited and evaluated. Documentary film and other data will be reviewed and program created for a worldwide network.
