A Plea To Forsake

A Plea To Forsake was produced in Spring 2006. Inspired by the life of Paramahansa Yogananda and motivated to create a unifying, meaningful project, I posted an ongoing mail art call in July 2005, calling for artists' works to express for all nations to forsake 'the negatives'.

This first edition holds the consciousness of 23 artists from 10 countries.

2007 revised mail art call, A PLEA TO FORSAKE

I invite your participation in an ongoing mail art call from Words of Light International Publishing.

Please join forward-moving energies and express for all nations to forsake: "wars; race hatreds; religious sectarianism; and boomerang evils of materialism", etc.
