Life of Miracles along the Yangtze and Mississippi with Wang Ping

I had the great honor of meeting and listening to Wang Ping, poet, novelist and multi-media artist share stories of her life and read from her book, "Life of Miracles Along the Yangtze and Mississippi." Afterward she lead us in  Prayer Flag making to bless more rivers in her travels.


She teaches at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota.

People gathering supplies to create their own prayer flag. They added leaves from around Winona and drew and painted on cloth.

Wang Ping used a brayer to add paint to the leaves to print on the cloth.

My art student, Ana joined in the fun as her Dad watched.  He was a bit shy to make one himself.  You can barely see the bill of his cap as he looked over her shoulder.  She was happy to make one for him.  She decided to keep with the Ridgeway Community School theme of creating Kindness.

Many people creating.
