"Words are like the wind and the waves...flow with whatever may happen and let your mind be free; stay centered." ~ Chuang Tzu
When I reflect upon the meaning of America's independence, I feel a distant recollection of high school history lessons. I see the text book illustration of a painting representing the Boston Tea party, and some text on an adjacent page explaining the Boston Massacre.
Upon further thought, I am taken into the whimsical land of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. In the sixth book, the American revolution is at the threshold of beginning. Tea is somewhat scarce in the colonies, and violence between citizens, government officials and indigenous peoples is widespread.
Then I take some time to reflect upon my own personal freedoms. Which is why I write a blog. For, what better celebration (well...fireworks, surely) than that of practicing my own ancestrally earned passion for FREEDOM of SPEECH. And also a graphically representative collection of items available for sale on Etsy.
And in celebration of my own independent artistic ambitions, I also offer a 15% discount today, on all items from TLALA.etsy.com
