Year of the Dragon
This is so in sync with what I have come to understand about my journey with the dragon. I often comment about the myths of the dragon today as compared to the original understanding of the dragon from the Asian culture. Revered as a source of luck, a guardian of the elements and benefactor, in the years its reputation has been tarnished to an evil, destructive beast.
Almost 9,000 Peace Dragons!
During the Ten Days of Peace celebrated here in Nashville, Paragon Mills Elementary helped us move all they way up to 7,800 dragons! And with the recent trip to Peru this October, The Franklin Delano Roosevelt school in Lima helped us move up to almost 9,000 peaceful friends joining the peace movement. Keep a watch out for photos!
When we look at the challenge of drawing a peace dragon, it’s when we drop the myths of the fiery and destructive nature of dragons, and replace them with a loving and soaring character bringing a gift to the world that we realize the power we have to take this challenge off the page and into our lives. Join me in vanquishing the myths of our world and embracing truth as a personal and world motto.
Coming to the third anniversary of Mumbai, honor those in your lives, past and present and the gifts they have given by their presence. Let the best of all of us live on.
Every Heart has a point, Every point a direction, Which way shall you go?

Welcome to The Peace Dragon, the virtual galleries of "Art with a Heart for Peace." Here is where artists have picked up their pens and paints, their feet, their beat, their scent and sense to transform the fiery image of the dragon back to its peaceful and loving origins.
