Walk for Hope and Peace, starting May 5

Dear Friends & Supporters,

I could not stop welcoming these beautiful, delightful, sunny days of April after the unbearable, long, lasting winter in Minnesota.  In the beginning of the life-sprouting season, we all excited with the historical news about the two Korean leaders’ commitment to peace on the Korean Peninsula.  Excitingly, I would like to share that I am ready to begin my walking art project, Walk for Hope & Peace, on this Sat, May 5, 2018.  Attached is the poster of the walk.   

Please keep enjoying this exuberant spring, and I hope to see you during/after my walk.  Thank you so much for your heartfelt support, huge encouragement, and hearty interest. 

Dedicating this art project to people in need of Hope & Peace
