Parrots for Peace
were working by perching on willing ones for photographs
Gloria Waslyn has been a successful career counselor, a long-time peace advocate, and a professional photographer; but her most important priority is to provide a comfortable and healthy living environment for her parrots who promote messages of peace. Indeed, campaigning for peace and the environment have been at the top of both Gloria’s and her parrot’s to-do list for nearly 20 years. The Parrots for Peace are the primary reason why she moved to the Woodstock area. Waslyn pursued this move from NYC seven years ago, and she and the birds now live in a house in which they feel safe and secure. They are also working towards the next steps in promoting peace, effecting equanimity with spirits as light as a feather, strong as a Buddhist mantra. The family’s origins began at the Urban Bird parrot store in SoHo 18 years ago, where Gloria chanced upon a female parrot who was then three months old, and immediately, she knew their paths had crossed for a reason. Waslyn promised the parrot that “I’d give her the best life I could so she could do the work she crossed my path to do: together, we would work to educate people that we are all inter-connected.” Waslyn named her Merlin, because she could “make the best kind of magic… to make children smile.”


Peace Performers
History

It's been a long day...

a very, very long day for all.


A child joins the last solo dance...
under a stunning sky.
 
In the finale we formed a huge Flag Circle--each took a flag--(I got Nambia)--each announced her/his Country and we circled waving through  
the band delivering a sing along "Give Peace a Chance". 

PS. the same child had to be convinced over and over that flags were not for attacking others, digging holes in cement or pole vaulting.

Sun sinking fast, we depart...Visited the drum circle but my camera battery had died so...


Take home 
(Recharged battery)
"Peacelights", Pin oak leaves and 'butter-n-eggs, "Rooted in Peace"

"Rooted in Peace"
