Newly Designed Cloth Face Masks

It is easy to become discouraged or worse. With just a smidge of consistent lighter choices, we can make this global experience happy for ourselves and for others.

The designs we work on daily keep us in the sane, happy zone. Each of us are asked to play our roles in the best way possible. Hopefully these moments of sharing with the world help boost your confidence in the beautiful person you will always be — no matter what the circumstances.

Peace and love,

Manny and Barbara

How beach living can be part of your life!

You probably have wished you could live right on the beach.  Haven’t we all?

We can watch the vacation and buy-a-house-on-the-beach videos.  Or we can take a piece of paper and lose ourselves in drawing our special, private beachfront fun land.

This is how I spent this afternoon.  I’ve been playing with a digital rendition of my dreamy beach place, and I didn’t even have to leave the comfort of my home!

I have been lost in a lovely interaction with my i-pen, i-pad and a little dreaming time. Three hours have passed and I didn’t even notice! I can hear the waves gently crash onto the sand, the breeze, and enjoy the colors. It’s a beautiful day to dream.

William Pardon Tankerfield The Third and A Googol of Wishes

In a bit I will play for you the great Oliver Hunt rendition of this beautiful book. There has been lovely snow outside my door since Sunday and we are expecting more tomorrow. It is a dreamy type of existence I am living in right now.

I love this picture of William Pardon Tankerfield the Third. Yes, I drew this picture, but what surprises me is who is looking back at me. I see the eyes of my husband, my son, the eyes of my grandsons, my daughter-in-law, my brothers and sister, and friends. I am beginning to understand that the person who I am now aware of is myself. It surprises, delights and surprises me again.

Here’s what I see: Fun. A little bit of mischief, but loving mischief. Delight to be here. Confidence that all is well. Mainly love. All you need is love.

The book was written as a way to think about and teach my then-10-year-old son about believing in dreams. I wanted him to know he has everything at his disposal to live the kind of life he wishes for. All you need is love.

As I said, I am in a dreamy sort of life today. Touching the magical ideas of happiness. I am grateful. I am love.

So here’s my promise: presenting Oliver Hunt @oliverthereader

Here’s a link to Audible and the first few pages of the adventure. Enjoy.
