Soula's Pictures

Talking with Soula Pefkaros made me feel more hopeful about the world. She is young, talented, and willing to do what she can to further the reach of peace and justice in the world. As part of this, she's become passionate about eco-farms and has gone all over the country taking pictures of these small, efficient, colorful, healthy places. I put together a "One Person's Voice" out of our conversation that will run tomorrow at 6:35 and 8:35.on WMRA's Morning Edition  I encourage you to tune in, as I think she will probably make you feel hopeful, too.

A week ago, I went to the opening of her eco-farming pictures in the gallery of Clementine Cafe. The large room was crowded with people who looking at her many photographs, eating food grown by the folks she'd photographed, even demonstrating an eco-farm mulching practice. An artistic celebration of ecologically-friendly food production. Since art reflect's life, then perhaps, as the Beatles sang 40 years ago, it really is getting better all the time.

The show's up through the month of September. I warn you though, it will make you want to go out and plant things. But then, it's really not too late to stick some kale seeds in the ground . . .
