Celebration – Prosperity of Spirit

A decision….

An action….

A strike….

A sequence of events set into motion…

Sparks fly – projectiles into the sky…

A crowd delights.

celebrating the fourth of july

Several hundred years BC, Chinese farmers threw some green bamboo on their campfire. It sparked and exploded.

The farmers thought that if all the commotion surprised them – it would surely surprise and scare away any evil spirits that would do their crops harm. Thus the tradition began of setting off fireworks to wish for prosperity and to celebrate special occasions.

This piece of art is my wish for prosperity of spirit (symbolized by the butterfly) for my community, country and the earth.
