Most days the world's problems seem too overwhelming and I feel like I am too insignificant to make a difference. Participation in this global project to support a house museum thousands of miles away has expanded my thinking. Every small action by itself is just a drop in the bucket, but thousands of drops soon overflow. Who would think I and many others would be charmed by the simple idea of making paper boats?
We visited a local house museum today. As we looked at the furniture, clothing, toys, photographs, and ephemera of a family that came here by wagon train more than 150 years ago, I thought about Mary Ann's Cottage - a place I had never heard of a few weeks ago. I want to say thank you to an artist in Scotland for your grand idea.
