June 19, 2021 – Last Days of Spring! The love of romancing my life Now I am in a summer kind of day. It is not hot and sunny. The sky has an overcast layer reminiscent of Berkeley where I grew up. We are listening to spa music. It is a bit irritating, and […]

There’s one thing we don’t fight about: life can be pretty stressful. I’ve always had one great support system, though, and that’s my relationship to flowers and flowers to me. The more I focus on the magical mystery of flowers, the faster stress just evaporates. What a gift of nature!
It’s just an honor to have someone wear our designs. It makes all this social isolation seem easier. It feels good to make some type of contribution.

Today, I am going to take a jug of bleach and make the house brilliant with good cheer. I am going to give it a good old try! We are alive! We are here and able to make the world a better place by connecting to a happier level of existence. We are able to live in the state of happiness. We just have to stop and choose to put on a happy face, to think of something more pleasant, to think of the ones in our home. Bet they can use a fellow housemate who has a positive outlook on life.
As a creative personality, I like to entertain myself with what I wear. So, face mask designs are fun for me. I’m about to add a couple more to my stash. Want to help me pick the best two? Here’s a 15-piece sample of our women’s collection. What‘s your favorite?

Face mask covers have been both a challenge and an opportunity for this high risk, older couple to make a contribution. What gets us up in the morning are thoughts of our family, especially our grandchildren, our friends and neighbors. We can visit over FaceTime or play remotely on PS4 games. Now we spend the major part of the day painting on our iPads or on canvas, able to offer them to the world. We love this connection with you. So, thank you!
As my mother often reminded me: It never hurt anyone’s eyesight by seeing things on the brighter side of life.
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.
Never give up. You can do this.
Please share this with your family, friends and neighbors.
Be Prepared! This was one of my Dad’s favorite cheers!

The ritual of drinking coffee, tea or your favorite morning drink can be emotionally beneficial as you begin your day.
My soul awakes To the thought of heaven As I drive over the hills To get a glimpse of the ocean And hear the crash of waves. My heart beats fast To the joys of heaven As I step out of the car To feel the breeze upon my face And find a world of […]
For the past couple of years I have taken a few lessons on-line to play the piano. I soon took to learning a few chords and becoming lazy. Most of my family play by ear so I thought, why not me? At any rate, today I decided to play songs for spring and put them […]
With the unique nature of life, we often miss understanding others, and even ourselves. This can throw us out of balance, leaving peace behind. Appreciating the beauty around us, accepting what takes place in the moment, and then cooperating with that moment, can lead to renewed peaceful living.
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 […]

All You Need Is Love — but how does it serve you? What if you think of love as an energy force that mirrors whatever it hears from you? What if you think of love as an energy force that is as close to you as you are to yourself? You use a heart drawing […]

There are many opportunities to change unhappy situations around us. I guess we just don’t know that we have that power! Somehow we have come to believe that the only way to change a situation is to fight against it. It appears that when bad things happen, we spend the majority of time talking about […]
A thought for today. It can be a great day of exploration and sharing! It is up to us how we will perceive each challenge that comes our way.

This is my contribution. I am writing to those who, like me, are not particularly inclined to speak up politically to deaf ears. I am proposing very elementary first steps in bringing a change to the presence of semi-automatic assault rifles. Perhaps they have already been addressed. But they are important enough to me to […]
Even when you are having fun, life slips by. Even when you sulk around, life slips by. Even when you fall in love, life slips by. Even when you are sick and frail, life slips by. There’s no way to stop the time you have in this one body. You might as well hug yourself […]
I have been hit by the creative spirit addiction! Weekends are now spent with stylus or even my fingers racing around the screen of an iPad or bamboo tablet. Don’t get me wrong, this is most enjoyable. Last night I could not sleep. I had my handy iPad close by and I began to design […]

Here is a good example of how negative thought can develop within any one of us. Egos can take over at a moment’s notice and if left unguarded can seriously impede the pursuit of happiness. Last evening a magazine salesman came to the door. A silent alarm was triggered within me: someone is ringing the […]
Even a child now understands that to be president you need enough money to publically slander your opposing candidate in order to win the election.
