Selling prints to get to Rainbow

Wed Jun 16, 2010, 9:32 AM
So, I've been talked into going to the Rainbow gathering this year.
Ive missed it the last three years so it didn't take much convincing.
It will be held in the Allegheny Nat'l forest in PA during the first week of July.
I'm taking my car, two homeless street youth - Gloves and Shayla - and our gear, roundtrip total more than 5,000 miles.
The thing is, I'm damn near broke! Which, unsurprisingly, doesn't bother the kids one bit.
"Mama D., don't worry. We'll gas can it all the way!"
Yeah? But.. but.. but..
(laughing)
So, I figured I'd come here and try to raise at least a few dollars.
Would you like to purchase a print and help us out?
Check through my DA gallery and check here, here and here.
Or I could pick something out especially for you.
Simply make a donation using my paypal account at: katia__r@hotmail.com
That's two underscores after katia.
I really need to do this. The gatherings are like medicine for me.
The experience is completely utopian.
Pure Love, Kindness, and Joy.
Really, if you can, you should COME.
I cannot wait for the kids to be drenched in Love!
Oh, And here's my route in case you're on my way. We'd love to stop and say hello.
Whether, I have a dime in my pocket or 1,000 dimes - I'm hitting the road on Monday (6/21)
And that thought alone makes me feel like this..

this is kenny. he is one of the many homeless in downtown seattle.
i saw him squatting one day with his sign asking for money
and i went and squatted next to him.
i told him my name was katia and he told
me his name was kenny.
i told him he was beautiful.
i didn't lie. he is beautiful to me.
he said no, i'm not.
i said yes.
he said no.
i said well, i see beauty when i look at you.
he said how could this be?
i said it be.
he smiled and his eyes twinkled.
i'm not lying - they twinkled.
i gave him some money and asked
if i could take his photo,
could i make a frame of his beautiful face?
yes.
and then we hugged and i kissed his cheek.
and
it was beautiful.
