About This Item
This ducky was created by UU Jester of Team-Ducky as a tribute to an old friend and former co-worker, Tanya Mikulas, and her artwork.
In April of 2011, Tanya's neighborhood, Forest Lake in Tuscaloosa, AL, was devastated by an F5 Tornado. Many people evacuated. Tanya stuck around...slowly but surely rebuilding her home while also tending to the local animals who were also among the newly homeless. Surrounded by destruction and devastation, it would have been easy to give in to despair. Instead, Tanya, walked the neighborhood finding beauty and evidence of new life. She documented her experiences with words and photos on her blog, ScalePhotography.com
One of Tanya's photos was chosen by the community to represent the rebuilding process. Then Tanya got the idea of creating an art installation of her photos, bringing her pictures of hope to a wider audience. She started a Kickstarter project to help fund the supplies she would need. Tanya was suprised at how quickly she reached her modest funding goal. (We were not.) The level of support Tanya has received has allowed her to create a book of her photos, entitled "Blown Away...the book."
Unitarian minister, William Ellery Channing, wrote, “Even in evil, that dark cloud which hangs over the creation, we discern rays of light and hope, and gradually come to see in suffering and temptation proofs and instruments of the sublimest purposes of wisdom and love.”
Help Tanya and Team-Ducky share images of HOPE and BEAUTY. Please post pictures for all to share and be inspired by.
Team-Ducky traveling Duckies do not have a travel-bug attached to them; instead, the tracking number for the World Faiths (Ganesh) Geocoin is on the bottom of the Ducky. This is Team-Ducky's 21st Traveling Ducky. Please help the "Blown Away Tribute Ducky" fulfill its mission if you can. Hold on to the ducky if you need some beauty and hope, but please do pass it on when you can. Tanya and Team-Duckly look forward to seeing the examples of beauty you share with this Tribute Ducky. "Blown Away Tribute Ducky", along with all of our unique signature Duckies, can be found on our Ducky Blog, Cachers of a Feather.
