I can hardly wait for Saturday to return to Project SOAR, this time to paint alongside master American artists like Maggie O’Neill of Swatchroom.

She and other creatives are flying in to decorate welcoming spaces at Peacock Pavilions and the non-profit’s new Dourar Ladaam village center.  There girls and their moms will take classes in health, sports, and yoga.  Also coming in 2015 is a Big Sis program and a Be Girl pads launch.  Learn more about how you can help.

DC-based fine artist Maggie O’Neill paints works inspired by fashion, travel, and music.  She also specializes in interesting Washington places and folks from Uncle Sam to Honest Abe, Teddy Roosevelt to President Obama.  Partnering again with Maggie are the girls of Gypsy Mint, a Minnesota-based company donating stencils for the weeklong mission.  Committed to giving back and eco-friendly best practices, painters and designers, Alicia Danzig, Kelly Fee, and Peg Malanaphy worked with O’Neill at Project SOAR in December 2013.   You can be a part of ongoing support provided by Maggie O’Neill Fine Art and Gypsy Mint.

Showing girls how to discover their own passions means also modeling pursuits of our own.   I’m thankful that since moving to Africa to do a couple of things I love– teach and travel–other passion paths have aligned.  Writing, serving, finding community, even painting again. For all of us, taking the road less traveled does make all the difference.

A Southern Girl Gone Global, I flew from my empty Nashville nest in 2014 to land in Africa where I lived two years in magical Marrakesh, Morocco. Now I live in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic and continue sharing my journey--so far across 27 countries on 4 continents and the Caribbean. This travel/lifestyle blog is about letting go of fear, clinging to faith, and following your heart's desires. It's a celebration of beauty, adventure, relationship...roots and wings.
