Meryl Ann Butler is an artist, author, educator and OpedNews Managing Editor who has been actively engaged in utilizing the arts as stepping-stones toward joy-filled wellbeing for over 25 years.

Her art in a wide variety of media can be seen on her YouTube video, "Visionary Artist Meryl Ann Butler on Creativity and Joy" at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcGs2r_66QE

A NYC native, her response to 9-11 was to pen an invitation to healing through creativity, entitled, "90-Minute Quilts: 15+ Projects You Can Stitch in an Afternoon" (Krause 2006), which is a bestseller in the craft field. The sequel, MORE 90-Minute Quilts: 20+ Quick and Easy Projects With Triangles and Squares was released in April, 2011.

She made two trips to the former USSR in 1987 and 1988 to speak to artists, craftpeople and fashion designers on the topic of utilizing the arts as a tool for global wellbeing. She created the historical "First US-Soviet Children's Peace Quilt Exchange Project" in 1987-88, which was the first time a reciprocal quilt was given to the US from the former USSR.

Her artwork is in collections across the globe.

Seduced by Quilts: An Album of Art-stitch-tic Inspiration The needlearts have belonged mostly to the mothers who patch us up when we are broken and to the grandmothers who are the weavers of life.

The Thanksgiving Farce and What We Can Do About It The actual Thanksgiving story goes something like this: illegal immigrants came to this country, pretended to be friendly to the inhabitants as long as it served their purposes, then killed, mutilated and subjugated the original citizens. We cannot change the past, but we can change the effect it has on the future. This Thanksgiving, perhaps it's time to set intentions for actions we can be thankful for in the future.

Censorship was apparently based on the recommendations of an anonymous board. A group of Ph.Ds and MDs are now protesting TED’s actions as well as their seeming disregard for transparency. TED also similarly revoked a contract for a TEDx event just 2 weeks before the event. Craig Weiler explores the issues in his book Psi Wars.
