What you focus on grows. And so, during this insanely difficult time, I'm turning to a word that we at TallGrass know all too well – Healing.
Man-oh-man, do we need healing in this world and especially in our country right now! Healing. From Covid-19 that's causing businesses to fail, putting people out of work, making them sick, and causing them to die. Healing. From wildfires destroying thousands of acres, countless homes, and livelihoods in the west. Healing. From hurricanes ravaging the south and east. Healing. From racial tensions with police and each other. Healing. From our divisive political climate and misinformation and
negativity on social media.
That's a tall order for Healing. But we can do it.
To begin, we invite you to join us in a healing project that's also a celebration of TallGrass's 25th anniversary this year. We're putting together a community-participation art installation based on symbols of healing: your versions of hearts. We have 4" x 4" panels of wood available at TallGrass for anyone who wants to paint, draw, or otherwise create a healing heart. Your hearts will then be mounted on a huge panel, creating a mosaic of healing to be displayed in our TallGrass
Pick up your square of wood at TallGrass anytime after October 8. The donation for a 4" x4" panel is $10, or $20 if you want to include paint and paintbrush. All donations go to Mount Evans Home Health Care & Hospice which provides care, love, and healing as people face their greatest challenges. Please return your creation by November 1 so we can assemble the mosaic.
We hope to have 250 pieces of art. (Get it? 25 years. 250 artworks.) You don't need to be an artist, everyone is welcome – kids, seniors, neighbors, guests, our employees – and not just here in Evergreen but throughout our metro communities – to make their statements of healing that will touch families, businesses, organizations, communities, and our world.
I can't think of a better way to celebrate TallGrass's healing therapies for the past 25 years. I hope you agree. Stay tuned for details and start now to plan how you will focus on helping our world heal!
