Challenge # 124 - Die vier Elemente

The Diva´s Weekly Challange # 124: "We Are Calgary"

(deutsche Version s. unten)
Laura asks us to keep Calgary, and any part of the earth, where people are dealing with incredible struggles and tragedies in in our hearts.
During the last weeks we have been informed extensively about many floods in Germany, Europe and around the world by television, radio, newspaper and Internet. Many villages were completely flooded and many people were made homeless. Great was the voluntary helpfulness of many people to support the charities. But time will come if natural disasters are no longer present and tend to fall out of the focus of the public.

I hope the assistance to the affected people will also continue in the future. The disasters are not over for those people. This challenge is an opportunity for me to pause for a moment, to open the heart and to consider what contribution – in whatever form – I can afford to help.
Thank you, Laura, for the thought-provoking impulse by this challenge!

My Tile is named “The Four Elements”
Earth (Tipple), Water (Waves), Air (Pop-Cloud) and Fire (Aura-Leah)

You for reading this post.... and maybe even for leaving a comment!

In den letzten Wochen wurden wir intensiv über das Fernsehen, Radio, Zeitung und Internet über sehr viele Überschwemmungen in Deutschland, Europa und auf der ganzen Welt informiert. Viele Ortschaften wurden vollständig überflutet und viele Menschen wurden obdachlos. Großartig war die freiwillige Hilfsbereitschaft sehr vieler Menschen zur Unterstützung der Hilfsorganisationen. Aber es kommt ein Zeitpunkt, an dem diese Naturkatastrophen nach und nach aus dem Fokus der Öffentlichkeit rücken.

Ich hoffe, dass die Hilfe für die betroffenen Menschen auch in Zukunft anhält. Für sie ist die Katastrophe nämlich noch nicht zu Ende. Für mich ist diese Challenge eine gute Gelegenheit, inne zu halten, das Herz zu öffnen und zu überlegen, welchen Beitrag – in welcher Form auch immer – ich als Hilfe leisten kann.

Danke für diese besondere, nachdenklich stimmende Challenge, Laura!

Titel: „Die 4 Elemente: Erde, Wasser, Feuer und Luft“
Erde (Tipple), Wasser (Waves), Luft (Pop-Cloud) and Feuer (Aura-Leah)


  1. I love the way you have portrayed the four elements, all of which are required to sustain life, but all of which sometimes seem to turn on us. I also appreciated your words of encouragement and your appeal to all of us to help in any way we can afford. One thing, no matter our circumstances, we can all send healing thoughts, and for those of us so inclined, to pray!

  2. Your tile is delightful!! I love it :)

  3. Lovely and thoughtful! Great choice of tangles to represent the elements!

  4. Love the 4-elements idea! It's these 4 that can give us trouble..... Thank you for showing us before and in colour. Did I understand correctly - you used watercolour pencils?
    Sehr gut gemacht!

    1. Thank you very much! It´s correct: I have used watercolour pencils.

  5. Great tile. Love the tangles that you used.

  6. The four elements is a perfect way to address the challenge and they are beautifully done!

  7. A lovely entry to the Challenge, great job!

  8. Thank you all so much! I am very pleased about the kind words.
