Let me begin, my friends, by extending my sincere apology for my recent posts regarding the craziness of this political season. You all know I dedicate my blog to supporting human rights for all people regardless of their ethnicity, religion, disability and sexual orientation. We are all human beings first. I share my inspiration to all.

With that being said, I hope this will be my last political post. However, depending on the outcome Tuesday, I cannot promise.

I previously stated I will not promote either candidate but I cannot keep quiet when a candidate running for the most powerful office in our free world, mock disabled people and degrade woman. I will not accept this behavior.

I am aware we had past presidents whose behaviors’ were unacceptable, but they didn’t display their indecencies in the public eye. I know the internet’s social networking exacerbates the news in today’s world.

Let’s remove all the indecencies and go to the core of the issues. Who is more experienced, capable, intelligent and who do you trust to be responsible to make the powerful decisions that affect our freedom and safety. Who will continue to respect all people regardless of their differences.

Please go out to vote.



Before one can gain and extend respect, you need to first love and respect yourself. Look into the mirror and honor the person looking back at you. Forgive yourself for past aggressions and wrongful acts. Allow yourself to leave the past behind and start 2016 fresh with a clear head and a new perspective of… Continue Reading


An interesting question and one I believe needs to be evaluated further. In many cultures and religions, couples meet for the first time on their wedding day. Their parents negotiate and make the match for their union. This tradition has been followed for many years and the children understand and accept it as part of… Continue Reading

Part 2 – Abanded Cerebral Palsy Victim

You, my friends, know how passionate I am about someone who is physically or mentally challenged.  I wrote a post previously about a young man abandoned in a wooded area in Philadelphia by his mother.  This young man has quadriplegic cerebral palsy, non communicative and non mobile confined to a wheelchair. I read several different… Continue Reading

A Parent's Anguish Dealing with a Special Needs Child

I love to watch television and movies in my spare time. I am retired so I can manage my own time throughout the day. My television time is scheduled simultaneously at meals, late in the afternoon after a full day working in my studio, and in the early evening, after dinner and before I go… Continue Reading

A New Painting

This young woman appears to be looking over to her left contemplating the real meaning of the quote. She is wondering if God really makes us strong enough to help the weak, rich to serve the poor, happy to cheer the sad and good to get us through the bad. Can God do all that… Continue Reading

September 5, 1971…

Forty-three years ago on this date I married my husband. As we were standing in front of our Rabbi and he was speaking the traditional words “for better or worse till death do you part”, little did we know how true those words would be in our life together. I was only 21 and my… Continue Reading

Sacred Eye from Life Book 2014 Class

Do you like my sacred eye? This is another lesson from Life Book 2014. I had the quote sitting on my desk waiting for me to catch up with the lessons to create this. Interestingly I never cried throughout the challenging years with my son. I easily will cry with a sad movie, a sad… Continue Reading

Making Life Changing Decision

Have you ever had to make a life changing decision? Were you ever forced to make a decision quickly that would alter your life or a family member? I did. It was probably the most gut wrenching decision my husband and I ever had to make. I do not want to give away too much… Continue Reading
