To: Paul Provence, President : Open Circle Arts ©

Dear Paul:

Having devoted much of my life to various environmental issues, causes, and organizations of merit, I see a direct correlation between your "The Living Circle"™ Children's Peace Sculptures environmental emphasis and the public at large.

A global project such as yours is much more effective and perpetually important, when linked to long-term ecological principles. Wisely, you have anticipated the pivotal environmental epoch we now live in and translated, through fine art, a simple yet profound message that even a child can understand - earth's natural equilibrium and its stewardship must become and remain the centerpiece, for all civilizations entering the 21st Century - whether an individual realization or forward-thinking collective decisions.

That is the power and great beauty of "The Living Circle"™ project's design - allowing a living tree to anchor the center of each worldwide sculpture installation - causing a ripple effect of ecological awareness, hopefully leading to commonly held conservation ethics that last!

Expanding awareness is a good start, but I also wish to thank you personally, Paul, for giving a portion of you ongoing project proceeds to various wilderness, conservation, and ecological efforts that will amplify your message, giving it hands and feet.  I can wholeheartedly recommend Earth Island Institute, the Sierra Club, Friends of the Earth, The Nature Conservancy, The Wilderness Society, and Earth Share (among others) as exemplary groups that would harmonize and benefit from your project's continued giving.

I look forward to sharing cogent ideas and strategies with you personally, Paul, regarding other environmental connections that will symbiotically benefit from associating with a project as insightful as yours.

I approve of your well thought out ideals; enjoy the joyous movement of your fine arts masterpiece; and completely support the combined efforts of your "Living Circle"™ Children's Peace Sculpture, for this generation and those in the future who will also embrace it.

This is great art, with an even greater ecological message! So, on behalf of all citizens of earth who plan on acting responsibly toward our seamless environment, thank you, Paul, for creating and sharing, "The Living Circle"™ with us all.
