I have another day of box making with students at the Windgate Center for Art and Design at the University of Arkansas, Little Rock. It is a beautiful facility with wood working being at the center of it all. 

In the  meantime, this lovely state has the highest rate of maternal mortality in the US with a death rate of young mothers 10 times that of California. What an unbelievable shame that is!

Our governor is more concerned about drag shows, the ease of getting guns and positioning herself for higher office than about the death of mothers. Go figure, please. Gun violence has become the highest cause of the death of children in the US. So between the death of mothers and of kids, we have a great deal of work to do and it appears that typical Republicans are not interested.

Can crafts play a role in bringing needed change? It is widely known that participation in the arts is healing of mind, body and spirit.

The photo shows a piece of sculpture by noted artist and philanthropist Robyn Horn at the entry of the Windgate Center for Art and Design. It is made of wood. I am grateful to be here.

Make, fix and create...
