Every Day Matters Challenge
In the winter of 2004, the Everyday Matters group formed - now 1000+ members strong - so people could communicate more
directly than just through commenting on my posts. Now, members chat everyday and get together all over the world to draw
and share their creations. It's great and you should join too. Here are some useful links about " The Every Day Matters " project:
