The Children of Omi

The children in Sasha Sicurella’s class at Art Omi’s art education program at Art Omi were communing in my piece ‘Trees for ETs’. Certainly children are the Extraordinary Terrestrials; their natural curiosity and need for play, their light touch on the Earth, the celestial light emanating from within them that pulls love and care toward them from great people altogether generate the profound energies we need to cultivate. If only the Earth were inhabited by the children within us reaching upward with advanced technological capabilities for sustaining human life.
