I grew up in a military family and joined the Air Force in 1971 during the Vietnam War. It was there that I became a peace activist.

This past weekend a bunch of people (about a dozen) came to our house to make a garden mural.  The operation was supervised by Maine artist and mural maker Natasha Mayers.  Housemate Karen Wainberg has been dreaming about putting such a mural on our back yard shed for some time.  She organized the event. Now it is done.

Former housemate Maureen, also an artist, made the two big birds at the top of the mural and changed the one on the right into a Baltimore Oriole in honor of my forlorn baseball team.  Very kind, thanks Mo.

I was mostly in charge of the keeping the folks fed and watered during the art fest.  But Natasha insisted that I offer some paint strokes to the mural so I helped MB make the sunflower in the lower left corner. 

The mural is very visible from the street and alot of folks passing by will admire this great work.
