When I recollect The Treasure of Friendship…- Helen Keller

Helen Keller Says: “When I recollect the treasure of friendship that has been bestowed upon me I withdraw all charges against life. If much has been denied me, much, very much has been given. So long as the memory of certain beloved friends lives in my heart I shall say that life is good.”

When indeed shall we learn that we are all related one to the other, thar we are all members of one body?…..Helen Keller

Helen Keller Says: “When indeed shall we learn that we are all related one to the other, that we are all members of one body? Until the spirit of love for our fellow people, regardless of race, color, or creed, shall fill the world, making real in our lives and our deeds the actuality of human brother- and sisterhood, until the great mass of the people shall be filled with the sense of responsibility for each other’s welfare, social justice can never be attained.”

Paulette Motzko’s Words of Wisdom 4 Years Ago. Oct 28th, 2012- Updated Oct 28 2016

​”Find your passions in life and then work towards them every day. In act, word and deed do something every day to see them become a reality. Use visualization on a daily basis and picture yourself doing what you want to most. 

The mind is a powerful thing and has more power than we all get close to using.

Making Magic: A Teacher’s Reflections

Here is an absolutely delightful story from my friend Jennie’s blog called “A Teacher”s Reflections.” I saw it reblogged on my friend Charles French’s, an incredible author friend- site. We are three different people with completely different lines that work who are all connected by WordPress as writer, blogger and photographers. 

 Jenny has been in the school industry teaching elementary school kids a lit more than 30 years.

Jennie has educated, inspired, and shown kids the right way and how to aspire to greatness. And, on one special  Halloween-time night, she made magic happen, along with all the parents and kids and the pumpkin’s they carved.

I don’t have memorized Jenny’s web blog URL but I’ll find out what it is and then post it here. You just have to look for “A Teacher’s Reflections” on WordPress and you’ll find her blog and more of her wonderful stories!

You are a living miracle. Bring out the best in everyone you talk to or meet. See everyone’s hidden potential and see them as if the worst had been the best. P.L. Motzko

Ever meet someone who you know could cheering up or you see doing a hard heavy manual labor job who could use being elevated higher on the  totem pole of life? 

Ask them how they’re doing. That’s a good start. That shocks some people where I live. They looked confused when I’m just nice because I can be- and I’m not wanting something from them! 

Look at people’s name badges and address them by name when you talk to him, and make eye contact, because that gives a more personal touch and lets people know you care care about human element. 

It also shows you’re not a techie-geek that goes everywhere wired to a Bluetooth headset or listening to music on earphones oblivious to everyone and everything around them. 

Before computers, Facebook and Twitter there were people and activities human companionship and instead of using Skype people actually got together- imagine that! Don’the just bump into people textin silly messages or playing games.  Focus on what matters first and people do matter because without them we wouldn’t have civilization or inhabitants of this planet Earth.  

Make a difference in somebody’s life today just because you can. The real model for some kid was lousy parents just because you can. Give to somebody knowing they’ll never ever be able to get back to you just because you can.

Minimizing Apathy and Maximizing Social Responsibility in America

Totally Inspired Mind: Where Positive Minds Congregate



I was trying to put into words the term for when you do something just because it is right but not because it EASY or THE STATUS QUO.  A fellow writer and blogger friend of mine called it “moral courage” the other day.

We are all connected on this big, water covered planet we call earth. There is only one of them, so if we mess it up or the people who inhabit it, we never have a chance to go back and fix it. Life on earth as we know it is a “one shot deal” so we better get it right the first time and quit living as though everything is expendable.


We have a throwaway society anymore and people and the apathy towards people in general has gone along with the trash we throw away. It shouldn’t be and I am not saying that all people are apathetic, because of course they are not. There are just many who could do far more than they do for others they meet in everyday life.

Once the water systems are polluted, what do we do?


Just these thoughts are good ones to ponder in terms of how we should be making sure there are no oil spills killing our fish and wildlife and ruining the water.


Human beings have a lot in common with the earth in that they are both mostly composed of water. Without it, all life ceases to be.

What about bombs and the warfare, chemical or otherwise? Since I was married to a rocket scientist and he was the master of logic and science; since we were married for fifteen years, I chose to take with me the best of what I learned and the best of our memories together. Why throw a bomb that will kill thousands of innocent women, children, and ruin the land around it, making it impossible to plant anything-just to wipe out that one “target”? It isn’t logical to me.





Why not find and train more people who speak the languages of the countries we are fighting right now, or at least have our military people in like Afghanistan and Syria?

Try something you haven’t tried before.

Success models are made up of prototypes that worked. Once you know the model, you can strive to create one that works as well or supersedes it.

How about our budget that the so-called great leaders in the United States of America have concocted?

Above wallpaper image from Zedge.

There has not been any trace of anyone from the two Bush’s to Reagan who has ever tried to come up with a budget that would start paying off the debt already incurred. Obama keeps spending and China owns more of America. It’s like a dirty American secret that nobody wants to take accountability for. 

Will our next president of the United States make sure the priorities are in the right places? I certainly hope so, but rather than seeing human beings who invented great leadership skills, I see Trump as an overgrown brat who tragically never grew up. I see Clinton with major trust issues going in the office, after breaching national securiy. Wish you did with a lot more than just sharing emails! People lost lives because of those emails and that cannot be overstated.

 I haven’t sat through one debate becauase it is not one by true definition.  A debate is where people are asked intelligent, hard-hitting questions and they answer them , and an intelligent  fashion .  Trump  and Clinton are good at insulting each other and name calling and badgering. I had little tolerance for badgering in elementary school and I have absolutely zero tolerance for that kind of behavior now.

Is there some kind of moral conduct and we can demand that of our presidential candidates?
It’s almost as though you need a referee make in a boxing match.


‘ve never seen a time in our political history where we’ve needed in an actual referee like it’s a boxing match verses to great minds talking about what they would each do. We never had that in the election from the get-go

I am not sure what kind of actual good they can accomplish, since they are not showing the best of who they are when that is exactly what they should be doing!

This is idiocy and being that I was born and raised in The United States and never want to see the day when China owns America.

What is going on is a vicious cycle of stupidity, borrowing on China’s credit and we are looking the fool in the eyes of other countries.

Before I get on a this one topic alone, that infuriates me at the stupidity and complete lack of responsibility on the parts of all who work for the government for not prioritizing paying the debt of the USA.

I hope I see the day when a budget is created and adhered to. I hope I see the day when we have a new president who has one known social security number, and stands for things that benefit Americans instead of big businesses.

I hope I see the day when you can get a job in America without having to know Vietnamese or Spanish, when it is America you are trying to get the job and not Vietnam or Mexico.


I hope I see the day when people try to be more kind and tolerant of each other’s differences.
Movie makers, producers and directors put positive and empowering messages out there instead coming up with a crime show give goofballs and psychos ideas to blow things up and kill people in movie theaters. Values can and could dictate our society, if we all wanted that badly enough.

I hope I see the day when our president realizes that every action has a chain reaction be it a bomb, something that is not needed that tax payer’s end up paying for. China is buying more of America up every day as the imaginary credit card is used.

They print up so much “play money” that I don’t think they understand in the real world, for you and I and everyone else, we all have to pay our debts. Why isn’t the White House and those who write the checks accountable as we are?

Breaking laws to fit personal agendas doesn’t make me proud of the current leadership. Can’t we as Americans demand to see how the money is spent? They are working for the American people and are supposed to be our ambassadors.


What are your major concerns for our country? What would you like to see happen in the next year in America?

Please Mr. President Obama, well you’re still president- open your eyes, wake up and be accountable for what you spend regarding our country.

Students arming Syrian terrorist and creating Isis why don’t you look at all the veterans who have no homes?

What did you think of raising the cost of living index for all people who are disabled on SSI and SSDI?

Why don’t you see that every American in every state can live in dignity and peace and have all their Corporal needs met before you think of taking money we don’t have and giving it to other countries?
NOW is a good time to create and adhere to a workable budget, not just hype.

Start caring and acting responsibly and care about America being owned my Americans and how we take care of it now is the gift we will hand down to our children.




“Over A Thousand People Came Together To Break a Record & Bring This Moving Christmas Hymn To Life” on YouTube


This is so beautiful that it put tears in my eyes and it happens to be my favorite Christmas song. I remember singing it in Choir in Blessed Sacrament Church I’m Garden Grove.

I know the Thanksgiving Day hadn’t even passed us and this is the turkey hasnt been served around thankful guests. People are planning their menus for the oNE day a year we celebrate the art of being thankful.

I dont know about you. But every day can be Thanksgiving any time you are thankful.

Much in the same way. Every day can be Christmas when we practice creating peace on Earth and being kind to our neighbors.

Ramona’s Alzheimer’s Disease Daily


Me and mom, Ramona Le Pore on a day when I took her to the Bell Terrace Mall to do whatever she wanted, and to introduce her to my friends I knew in there. We had an awesome time and I can remember every detail of it common including little cup cake at Whole Foods Market I bought her with the rose bud on top.

Everything I did for mom was pure joy because she was the most appreciative lady who ever walked the Earth. Some of the things mom loved I love.

I will carve time out to meet with the directors of the Alzheimer’s Association. Hopefully we can work together to raise money to find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease.

I am going to show them this newsletter so they can give it to all their clients.

Caroline Myss says : “We are not meant to stay wounded. We are supposed to move through our tragedies and challenges and to help each other move through the many painful episodes of our lives. By remaining stuck in the power of our wounds, we block our own transformation. We overlook the greater gifts inherent in our wounds – the strength to overcome them and the lessons that we are meant to receive through them. Wounds are the means through which we enter the hearts of other people. They are meant to teach us to become compassionate and wise.”

Trust and integrity are two key characteristics that I want and someone leading our country. As much as I would like to see that every person in the United States who works makes the same amount of money for the same job, I’m hoping our next leader will carry that Craig go out. After all it is a civil rights issue isn’t it? Why wasn’t it made law years ago?

Giving up women complained about getting the same amount of money as a man for the same job then it would have happened. But all women have to work together and love you together to make that happen you can’t just bitch about it.

 Hillary Clinton was claiming she could get equal pay for women, but I cannot vote for anyone who knowingly divulged classified documents of United States of America and jeopardized the lives of soldiers who make great sacrifices for our country to stay free. 

She was an attorney and I find it difficult to believe she was ignorant of the fact that those documents were classified.

She knew better and there’s no excuse for that.

My question then nobody else has asked is why was she sharing them in the first place? Who is she sharing them to?

If she had any kind of question about the security of the documents or the sensitivity of the documents, she should have asked.

I feel because she got people killed she should be tried for treason because of her actions.

My husband is a rocket scientist working with Boeing and United launch Alliance for the jet propulsion division. In his line of work in the Aerospace industry,  there were classified programs he worked on that he couldn’t even tell me about. I never asked further either.  I respected that fact that I understood it for the reasons that it was. He took an oath to the company.

 As a leader of our nation you’re supposed to look out for the betterment of all people not just some of the people, I’m definitely not just for yourself or whatever selfish reasons you have.

Not once did she think about the chain reaction that would happen for her lazy and irresponsible actions.

Relaxing Background Guitar Music & How Creating An Inspiring Environment by Paulette Motzko


I love this beautiful acoustic guitar play list.  

If you are a creative person just like I am, the key is to find out to flowing inspiration is to know in an intimate way what environment helps you create the best in yourself.

 Keep repeating it over and over again. What works for you will be different than anyone else. 

Things that inspire me are…

Beautiful natural surroundings are beautiful places

The Pacific Ocean

Majestic mountains

Enchanted Forest’s

Inspiring workplaces that are conducive to concentration

Special music playlist and help bring out the best in your artwork. This could be writing, this could be photography, this could be cooking or painting or some other art form.

The special place that everytime you go there you meet someone extraordinary. I have several places like that and I don’t even question what happens I just know it happens. Will meet someone who is absolutely extraordinary every time I go to this certain location. If you pay attention you’ll find then you can maximize the positives in your world. Just pay attention and follow your instincts and usually always steered in the right direction.

And lastly I do a lot of meditation everyday I’m prayer and centering thought hoping to create something I feel give something back to the universe, and will last long after I touched the face of God.
