That was a photo my mother had that I inherited when she touched the Face of God this year. I had never seen it before until recently. I updates it in high definition and added made it look like a painting. Something told me to write those words on it, so I did. I nearly died 5 times in my life and by the sheer fact that I thrived in spite of much adversity in my life, God gave me blessings in the way of creativity.

I didn’t know this site Totally Inspired Mind would be read by about 100 countries monthly when I created it, but I hoped and envisioned the world would embrace it lovingly as I put my own brand of “goodness out in the universe”……

Watch “Christina Perri – A Thousand Years (Piano/Cello Cover) – ThePianoGuys” on YouTube

https://music.youtube.com/watch?v=QgaTQ5-XfMM&feature=share

The closest I ever came to this beautiful video was playing a song I wrote for a friend’s niece’s wedding in a forest close by the Rogue River in Oregon. I can still remember it as though it was yesterday. I was 24…

I can take a picture of the photo in the frame to add later…..

This song on my iPod got me through some of the worst times I was going through about 3 years ago.

I guarantee if you are going through traumas or difficult times, if you listen to the words in this song and then become the words you’ll feel better!

Nobody is born racist. I wish we could all be more like children.

image

I found this on Instagram the other day and I don’t know who created the image or who photographed it, but I love what it says. Sometimes pictures speak a thousand words and this one certainly does.

If you’re a racist and you have preconceived notions over certain races don’t have that to your kids. Don’t pass down traits that you possess two children who are innocent and have every right to have every opportunity given to them in this world.

What you want to do when you have a child is impart the best of who you are to that child because they are your Living Legacy.

There are millions of other legacies that you can pass down to your children like self reliance, understanding, intelligence, compassion, empathy, fortitude, persistence and a variety of other noteworthy things.

One of the best qualitoes of which you can show and teach and illustrate to your kids by YOU living it-is LOVE.

This is a work-in-progress folks. I’m still going through photographs that were my mother’s and taking pictures of them one by one and adding them to this post. After all the pictures are added then I’ll add text to it. Rather than not publish it and keep it private like I had, I thought I would just Post-it and let you guys enjoy it while I’m building it.

Watch “For The Longest Time (Billy Joel) – Barbershop Quartet” on YouTube

I was searching Google Music on my Galaxy Note 4 just to see what would come up with barbershop quartets and sure enough they have a channel! Any kind of music you want to hear in the world is on Google Music pretty extraordinary and just so happen these guys came up acapella. They’re pretty talented two guys one of the singers is playing three parts. It just so happens that they are singing one of my favorite Billy Joel songs For the Longest Time.
This made me smile so I hope it makes some of you out there all over the world tuning in smile too.
If this was a bright spot in your day than that makes me happy.

I’m listening to Andrea Bocelli ♫ #iHeartRadio #NowPlaying http://www.iheart.com/artist/Josh-Groban-58260/songs/To-Where-You-Are-1056187?campid=android_share

I was missing my sweet mother who touched the Face of God and is smiling at Him instead of me now and this song came on singing through my Bluetooth speaker. This was always one of my favorites from Josh Grobin, and I have the piano sheet music to the entire CD score on my piano now. Now the song “To Where You Are” speaks to me in a different way now.
The great things mom gave me and taught me and encouraged me to do with be giving back to me forever.

This place is absolutely fabulous!

From our tantalizing appetizer of caprese insalata and French bread with dipped in a sweet Balsamic vinegar and extra Virgin olive oil, to my main course of ravioli brasato -the flavors sung on my taste buds sweeter than the opera singers sang in St. Mark’s Square!

Mom and I were Catholic and went to countless masses together. She was confirmed later in life like I was. Her entire name, including her confirmation name- was Ramona Lea Christina Le Pore.

My full name, including my confirmation name is :

Paulette Anne Therese Le Pore Motzko. When I got married I dropped my middle name to turn my maiden name into my middle name. See why I shortened it?

Mom’s name to me will always be wonderful, kind hearted, compassionate and appreciative. She always found the good in everyone had brought out the best in everyone.

Obama: Declared Trump ‘Unfit’ Equal Rights, Leadership vs Dictatorship & Disabled Rights in Nevada by P.L Motzko)

Obama: Trump ‘unfit’ for presidency
http://www.cnn.com/2016/08/02/politics/obama-says-trump-unfit-for-presidency/index.html

Hooray! Finally Obama says exactly what I have been writing and saying all week.

I hope this is the first step to taking very very strict action of for the first time in history deeming someone unfit to be the president of United States.

It’s not a free chair. You have to earn that chair was there ever a very well-thought-out word you say that shows what kind of person that you are. People aren’t hiring a name to be the president they’re hiring a human being with values.

If you’ve proven that you’ve alienated every type of minority there is, including women , which for the most part in this world are still a minority, and you’ve insulted even your Republican teammates-what’s coming for us as a nation with Trump as dictator?
Doesn’t take a rocket scientist like my ex-husband to figure that out!

Trump would not be a leader. He would be a dictator just like Hitler was and I know it. In my heart of hearts I know that. When you’ve lived over five decades you develop insights, wisdom and have an inner voice and intuition about things. If you really listen to it, you will be dead-on right about everything.

There’s a difference between a leader and a dictator. A true leader is a Visionary. A leader can bring out the best in everyone and see they’re true hidden potential, even when they can’t even see it themselves.
A true leader hopes to work in a synergistic fashion with other leaders, and not compete but work with them creating a triple win which is- I win, you win, Society wins at large. I learned that philosophy what I was in the Voluntary Leadership Program at Chapman University where I graduated in 1997 the top of my class. I’m very proud of that because it started with a vision, and an extraordinary idea and it ended with reality.

Trump would be a dictator and we would smash everything and everybody that’s in his way. He would look at people as obstacles and he would not behave in an ethical fashion. Trump’s fashion would go against everything that America stands for. We would all be subservient to him.

I was married to a real rocket scientist for 15 years and much of his logical thinking rubbed off on me. In the best of timed my ex-husband and I got along really well because we were both could discuss any topic there was in the world. Even though I was disabled my ex-husband didn’t care because he saw my abilities and he saw what I could do.

In 2016 we as a nation have become a very sophisticated people. We could work out almost anything we would ever want to work out with any country there is- if we only wanted to . We have to want to more than anything in the world though.

In order to pave New Roads to a more promising future for all of us in the United States. We need to elect a president who is an excellent speaker and who can articulate all of our wishes as a unified people. Our president must be an excellent communicator. Trump is the opposite of that. He’s the polar opposite of an articulate communicator. Trump is a triple loser. The only element he comprehends is domination at any cost. All of a sudden the triple winning scenario goes out the window and what you’re left with is Trump wins, Trump wins, and society loses.

One of the things I’ve always wanted to do is be a speech writer or a writer for a politician I endorsed or The United Nations to help unite us as a world. With very carefully chosen words we can avoid war and create positive Alliances. We could work towards a more promising future it. It just takes work and silence and thought.
It means you have to sit down and you have to be in a quiet room and you have to have no TV blaring and you have to just think.

Changing the subject but still on the train of thought of equality and civil rights:

I haven’t had a TV in over 3 years due to the state of Nevada lowering my SSI check over $250 a month, and I am on a payment plan with NV Energy to keep my electric on!
That’s not living in dignity and far from it. I gave up alimony for this just to have my medical covered?

People who collect subsidized income would rather be working, and most of all have good health. They would also like to not be discriminated against because of their disabilities and appreciated for whatever intelligence, abilities, and skills they possess. In the real world that’s not how it works. I was given a 50,000 year job by Edison in California then when they heard that I use Paratransit Access they said “oh we won’t be needing you!” I swear to God that happened. I have seen it time and time again so maybe some people like to sit around eating bon-bons all day watching a TV set but that just ain’t me! I placed education first and I want to be hired for my abilities and paid accordingly. Once I get Paratransit I will be able to make more money and be able to make it get to jobs faster and not in debilitating 115 degree heat.
It’s counterproductive to anything that I’m trying to do in this state.

This story will be given to Senator Harry Reid and one of the local newspapers here.

I say it like it is and I’m not ashamed to say that. People respect me for that.
They expect me to make $14,000 a year on top of the joke of a monthly check of $728 and collect the below poverty wage figure. Sure SSA. You try and earn a living with half the people you deal with are drug addicts, drunks, or just flakes. I am in the process of raising the cost of living index for all people on SSI, SSDI veterans and all people who are disabled who are affected. Inflation increased but the cost of living index for all the disabled people who rely on that for life and survival. It has not been raised in over 20 years. Not cool and it’s about time. Whoever created the figure $728 needs their head examined. That doesn’t even cover the rent. doesn’t cover rent and utilities. I’m in the process of meeting with Senator Harry Reid and I think I will be the first Disability Advocate Nevada has ever had.
I want to see that all people who are disabled live in dignity.

After all, I should know about civil rights I had my freedom taken away from me moving to Nevada. They told me that level if he’s not a disability it’s not worth Paratransit you’re not disabled enough that’s what I said that’s what they said amazing isn’t it illegal to cancel or specially when they denied my doctor’s letter stating I needed Paratransit and I haven’t driven for over 25 years to do it almost being killed in a car accident; they turned me down. Makes no sense. It’s called ignorance and stupidity. That ignorance and stupidity cost me a broken ankle and toes and one year later I now have arthritis and then ankle. 3 people were involved with that moronic decision to play God and ignore a neurologists doctor’s order stating that I had heat-sensitive epilepsy and I’ve had Paratransit for 25 years in the state of California with Access. Those people will be sued in civil court at a minimum of $10,000 a piece by me because I suffered because they were stupid and arrogant and the worst part apathetic and callous they didn’t care if I got injured or not but I did.

I will go down in history as being the first disabled white woman who came to a dust bowl of a town to live and dignity and peace and instead got didn’t find that.

Nevada is the worst state for disabled people in the world. If you’re disabled don’t come to Nevada. I will say that over and over-don’t come to Nevada if your disabled- especially if you have Mobility impairments because there are tons of people who should be in special homes they should have a personal care attendant with them and they don’t.
Yesterday I fed and helped a totally blind man who was walking the streets feeling this way the whole way with a cane and he could barely get inside the Jack in the Box that I happen to be at.

When I was on the phone with my friend I looked up at him and he went to my table and asked for two more quarters because he almost had enough to get a hamburger. This was a veteran who served in the military and because of a bomb he had one of his eyes blown out and the other one with glaucoma! It makes me sick how America treats our military in this country and I want to see that change. The Veterans Administration did a lousy job taking care of my dad when he was alive and obviously is doing a lousy job on the totally blind veteran walking the busy streets with a cane. I do good walking around this state and I have eyes and I can see!

Cars will kill you in this town and they don’t care that you have the right away because no one makes anybody accountable. That’s the problem with Nevada is life is not sacred, disabled people don’t matter here as with the ADA laws of CA. That’s why they’re so many pedestrian fatalities-ALL because the people who run This Dusty Hot Town seem to think it’s okay.
It’s not okay. Manslaughter will never be LEGAL and life is sacred and a car will always win against a frail human body.

I stopped what I was doing and I was horrified when I saw this veteran, of which I know is full name, when just might go to the Veterans Administration myself and say what are you doing for this poor guy? Find out who is case worker is and chastise the crap out of them! As imperfect to Southern California is, if THAT BLIND GUY were walking the streets, feeling his way with a cane, nearly getting killed by hundreds of cars, a police officer would pull over and find out where the guy is and find out where I lived and find out who his case worker is that they would care there’s not a whole lot of that here in Nevada. They don’t tell you all that stuff when I Nevada tourism guide!

He would have a counselor with the Braille Institute, he would have probably housing it was very good because he has a total disability , that’s what I have but I’m not getting full SSDI for it it’s called the disability that never goes away-like mine which is epilepsy.

He should have someone helping him a PCA, just like what I used to have until moving to the wild west where everybody fends for themselves and people just watch it all and few help.

I should have all the benefits of a blind guy has anybody and both of us should know that where ever we go we are driven by a driver.

The Federal Government needs to rethink the way they allocate the payments people get for SSDI and SSI shouldn’t play God. All should be treated the same.

Nobody has the right to declare that one disability is better than the other or gets more money than the other. What staff in the heavenly court dictates that? I’ll take pictures of all my medicine that I take during the coarse of a week and have to swallow in the morning so I don’t go to the hospital. I will educate all of them because obviously RTC as a company, the Paratransit division, Senator Reid, and Titus are all in the Dark Ages where epilepsy is concerned. At this very moment August 2nd , 2016 epilepsy is not recognized as a disability in the state of Nevada. WOULD I have come to this cockeyed, dumb state knowing that I would be discriminated against? WOULD I have spent $1,000 moving all my furniture from one state to another, becoming a Nevada state resident, losing all my Medicaid benefits in California when I did that, and then living like this? I don’t think so nobody would their right mind and it’s wrong .
The Paratransit director Jim Howland told me to my face he didn’t care about people who had epilepsy because he didn’t have to care. Caring about the people he served was not a prerequisite of working and feeling his job. Can you believe he would have the audacity to say such a stupid thing yes he did. I want him fired and replaced by someone who was compassionate and kind and caring and understands about all disabilities not just physical disabilities but neurological disabilities like mine that’s what epilepsy is how about other ones physical ones all disabilities don’t put an imp somebody the equivalent of a chimpanzee behind a desk Who’s acting as God to everybody turning him down when he doesn’t even know what he’s doing when his decisions have bad implications on the people he’s doing it on like mine did. He made the decision to allow me to be injured and put me at risk and that was a bad decision as well as Jim Champou and Tina Quigley.

Me and the blind veteran are mote alike than observers would guess. I fed him and he ate and that was good but he needed way more than I could give. I felt bad that I couldn’t do more.
I’m not a social worker I’m just a person on a limited income trying to make a difference in a two-bit town that it seems that the going rate in Nevada is they just don’t care.

Dina Titus didn’t care that I didn’t have my Paratransit ID. I met with her office and I had to drop seizure in her parking lot. My left knee got all ripped up and bloody and I have pictures of it to show pictures of it to show Senator Harry Reid , along with with some shocking photos of what my first studio looked like here-that’s what $728 buys!
A picture speaks a thousand words. You can say things until you’re blue in the face and people just don’t get it. You show a picture of something and all of a sudden people wake up out of their stupor and it becomes real. To see up close and personal how people live.

Not one of Dina Titus’s advisors came out and even asked me am I alright.
Apathy seems to be Nevada’s creed. Apathy towards the dead pedestrians who get pummeled daily by drunk, preoccupied drivers who aren’t paying attention to the road and you’re not paying attention to stop signs, red lights and do not know the word yield. I’m a pedestrian and there’s lots of other people who are too.
Senator Reid needs Paratransit if he can barely see and relies on a personal care attendant which I should have like I had in California for 25 years and a driver like I had for over 25 years in California. That right there should not require a test at all should have wished it? There should have been no test for me whatsoever for Paratransit especially when the test is not only test for mobility issues that’s all it does. Most disabilities are invisible and are not Mobility related so going off on a tangent here with my particular situation and I’m fighting for but it’s not everyday you meet with a Federal representative.

No TV set, no cable, no cable bill either. All the news that I get is on average about 200 different apps that are on my Galaxy Note 4 and they’re programmed for headline news so immediately when the news comes out I get it. Twitter it’s also great for finding out what’s going on in the world as well as Facebook.

I get it on Headline News, I get it on CNN I get on Las Vegas Review-Journal sometimes I go to CBS News because I like their correspondence and I think they do a good job of covering stories.

We can take our nation anywhere we wanted to go but we have to think about the future and not just be selfish.

I wrote Mr. Khizr Khan on Facebook and asked him if we could petition or do some kind of proactive action that would deem Donald Trump as unfit to hold the position of the president of the United States of America. Many people may not know this but he’s an attorney who graduated from Stanford University. Khizr Khan is a very eloquent, hard-working American Muslim who earned every cent he’s getting and who, even though he was verbally attacked by Donald Trump, managed to speak in an eloquent way and choose his words ever so precisely. I commend him and I told him that in an email and a private message.

We need to increase more positive ways that we can communicate with one another rather than blowing each other up and watching the body parts fly of all the innocent people who die just to kill one person.
War just like Trump is a triple loss now and in the future. Let’s avoid both!
