||I have some health related challenges. Each day, I am finding the strength and faith to overcome these challenges.
I am conquering my health problems, renewing myself in every way, and restarting my career as a practicing visual artist.
Daily I appreciate the love, opportunities and growing blessings in my life.
I have been fortunate to have been blessed by these three books coming into my life over the last three months.

Dedicated people I have met on Care 2.
|What Bugs Me
Rudeness in all its forms,
Complainers and whiners,
Living fully in the present,
Spiritual growth and Spiritual guidance,
Saving honey bees,
I was a beekeeper,
The sounds of moving water,
a gentle breeze,
The United States Founding Fathers,
the beauty of nature,
Kindness in the face of hate,
|What Scares Me
Joan of Arc,
||"Dreams do come true. Without that possibility nature would not cause us to have them." John Updike
"Slow down and enjoy life." Eddie Cantor
'It's far too easy to look at a place like Uganda and
think that their laws or societal dealings don't affect
you. It's just as easy to look at Arizona's proposed
legislation and think that it's not that serious because
it will only impact a minority in one particular state.
But it's precisely when the rights of minorities or the
disenfranchised are at risk that we must be the most
vocal. We cannot only speak out on our own personal
issues, or pick and choose which rights we want to fight
for. Nobody is protected until we are all protected
equally under the law. Just as I'm not silent about
justice for Trayvon Martin or Jordan Davis, I will not
be silent about this. It's not about your particular
quest for civil rights; it's about fairness and equality
for all human beings. Period.'
Rev. Al Sharpton

"Do not believe what you have heard
Do not believe in tradition
Do not believe in anything spoken of many times
Do not believe in written statements
Do not believe in conjecture
Do not believe in authority, teachers, or elders.
But after careful observation and analysis, when it agrees with reason and it will benefit one and all, then accept it and live by it." Buddha
