The title of this blog could change someday since understanding it requires reading so much
The story behind the "Peace, Dude" name of this blog is that it was a joke that became a solution. I wrote more about that in the middle of a page on this site called "About the Artist," but briefly, I had expressed my desire to create a peace pole that is more lighthearted. Then, without thinking about that, for a joke, inside of a crate of normal peace poles, I included one that, instead of "May peace prevail on earth," just said "Peace, Dude" in four languages. It made so many people smile that it became the pole that they use to introduce people to peace poles (these are people who order them by the crate full) and now is the name of this blog.
