a monthly showcase of performance/literature/film-video by women
an International Women Artists’ Salon series
Saturday, 17 January 2015 ~ Host: Jenny Green
Film: Janet Restino
FULL MOON/PEACE POEM, a plea for rivers of peace to permeate all people, for reflection, a prayer for peace.
Janet wrote FULL MOON PEACE POEM in Aug 2001. Years later, it was recorded live at St. John’s Church in West Village by Pamela Timmins. It gets more urgent as years go by. She encourages you to share the message.
Janet says: I’m not much different than a bee making honey, a spider spinning a web. I mine the psyche and the spirit to make art. I’m just a vessel at times – keeping myself in tune to participate in the act of creation, which feels truly divine.
