Dots....eat them, play them, love them




Amy Myers wrote to tell me about a "board and care" residential facility that houses 250 people suffering from debilitating mental illness located in San Pedro, California. In this space there is a Living Museum Art Center, where a handful of dedicated artists spend the major portion of each day. Amy tells me these artists derive great satisfaction out of their work and in some cases discovering their creativity has literally saved their lives by giving them a sense of purpose. Jennifer Flores is one of these talented people and her "Dots Guitar" will certainly bring a smile to your face. If you have any interest in seeing more of her work, please contact

Oh...do I understand the saving power of art!! This guitar is FANTABULOUS!! I LOVE it!! This post encourages me all the more, that once I'm healed up enough from my own "wounds", I want to help other people heal through the power of art! Thanks for such an inspirational story!!
