Belief Collection

Our beliefs originate from our thoughts The more frequently thoughts are expressed in similar words, the stronger our beliefs form.

Words corral and often become the reflection of our current thoughts. so it makes sense to pay attention to our words.


Change our words and change our focused attention. This in turn, transforms; the direction of our thoughts.

Change our thoughts, and our beliefs will change like a chain reaction.



Why is this helpful?


Beliefs have a magical power to inspire us to move toward a desired action.

When we want to achieve something, we can begin this achievement by using appropriate words which reflects our goal


Want a positive outcome? …

Listen to your words. Pay attention to what you say. Are your words in alignment with what you want?

Camano Island in January

When it’s cold outside and toasty in the car … when you are retired and your husband can’t easily get around … that’s when you can really appreciate a State Park!

This is Camano Island Park, our favorite! In the summer our grandsons love to swim and run along the beach. We arrived here in 1974 with a 2-year-old son, a Great Dane and a Springer Spaniel. We were 27!

The house we rented was across the street from the beach. When we moved in, there were no locks on the doors and we needed to put up a mailbox to get our mail. We had come from city life — Berkeley. It was a magical time!

Our son enjoyed turning over rocks to find baby crabs. We gathered the tiny rocks, shined them up and glued them on bottles, little boxes, … made lamp stands. These were glorious moments of family bliss. That year, Manny worked as an inhalation therapist in Everett and I groomed local poodles.

Ah-h memories. I apologize for taking you down memory lane. It happens a lot lately i can still feel the vibrations of those memories … just like I am there. Life is certaInly worth the ticket!

Today I’m working on placing some of these photos into a collection featuring this island on Zazzle. I look forward to finding more and more audiences who resonate with my visions Here are some products from this morning.

Celebrate Winter

Camano Island had snow on Christmas Evening and a few days after. It made for a magical family event. Snow had created an unexpected ski lodge. Our grandsons were elated at the idea of sledding down the slopes around our house. 2021 Christmas will be remembered joyfully this year! Nature came to our rescue and in its white, cold silence, our hearts were warmed!

I’ve taken more photos than I could imagine, but each site was more beautiful than before. It is from these photos that I was inspired to produce this scene.

I wonder if they inspire my readers as much as they inspire me. …just a gentle simmering of joy. I love the colors, I love imagining that the trees are really mountains and I am somewhere far away from the small irritants of life. I wish to focus on the positive and I always get my wishes. So, please forgive me if I bubble too loudly.

For me, to create is participation in all that is physical and non-physical. …a symphony of good feelings by choice.
