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 since she was a hippie. She began writing for OpEdNews in Feb, 2004. She became a Senior Editor in August 2012 and Managing Editor in January, 2013. In June, 2015, the combined views on her articles, diaries and quick link contributions topped one million. She was particularly happy that her article about Bree Newsome removing the Confederate flag was the one that put her past the million mark.

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. Her popular video, How to Stitch a Quilt in 90 Minutes with Meryl Ann Butler can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PrShGOQaJQ8

She has been active in a number of international, arts-related projects as a citizen diplomat, and was arts advisor to Baltimore's CIUSSR (Center for Improving US-Soviet Relations), 1987-89. 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.

Meryl Ann is a founding member of The Labyrinth Society and has been building labyrinths since 1992. She publishes an annual article about the topic on OpEdNews on World Labyrinth Day, the first Saturday in May.

Ideas Worth Suppressing: Psi Wars and TED's Worst Nightmare TED censored two TEDx videos that questioned the materialistic assumptions of modern science. 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.

Bayou Corne Sinkhole Still Swallowing Louisiana 3 Years Later It's the biggest ongoing disaster in the United States you have never heard of. When the Bayou Corne sinkhole was discovered on Aug 3, 2012, it spanned a couple of acres. A year later it covered more than 24 acres and was 750 feet deep, and continued to expand. The evacuation order has been in effect for over three years. Now the sinkhole is over 32 acres. And no one seems to have a clue about how to fix it.

Could the Proposed Department of Peace Have Intercepted the Tucson Gunshots? Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) introduced the bill to establish a U.S. Dept. of Peace in July, 2001.

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. Quilting has been woven into the very soul of America, since scarcity of goods and thrifty spirits inspired women to craft warmth from scraps. Now quilts are more often made for artistic value, and this feminine craft has blossomed with passion into its own art form: a photographic album.

Confessions of a Moonwalker: Apollo 14 Astronaut Edgar Mitchell on Inner and Outer Space On Feb. 9, 1971, the Apollo 14 Command Module splashed down in the South Pacific. It was a half-a-million mile round trip which included 9 hours on the surface of the moon for astronaut Edgar Mitchell. His odyssey resulted in an "equal and opposite" inner journey--on his return to Earth, Mitchell had a "samadhi" experience--a sense of profound oneness with the universe--which left him forever changed.
