Not so happy today...
Watching the news reports from the Gulf, is painful. So what do we do? The simple answer is to donate to some worthy cause that is addressing the problems resulting from the oil. The more difficult answer is to think about how we all share responsibility.
So, start simply. Visit Ripple, a blog started by illustrator Kelly Light. Kelly has enlisted the aid of illustrators from around the world. They have donated one or more small pieces of art. If you, in turn, donate money to one of two organizations, then you get to own one of the works of art! Wow!
Seeing all the Gulf disaster inspired work, inspired me, too. My haiga is an admission of our guilt. Now all we have to do is repent and break some of our oil dependent habits.

Please click on the LOC link to look at the original Japanese print. It is lovely. I have taken the lovely fish and surrounded and masked it with the murk of an underwater oil leak. No longer lovely.
