Read Silvia’s great article about how to maximize the most important things in your life and minimize or remove the minor ones and how to keep your mission that you’re trying to accomplish right in front of your face guiding your every thought and move like a Divine Compass.
Her article inspired me to writ what I did. Thanks Silvia Mordini!
“What I mean by a Divine Compasses is what you’re operating and fighting for and working towards -Your Mission- the things that really matter to you in the heart of your soul but – the big difference -you’re being Guided by God on what the best moves and decisions to make our regarding it.”

Image photographed and created by Paulette L. Motzko. I was sitting at my bistro table on my balcony eating homemade Bulgarian-Yogurt with pistachios, oranges and drizzle of honey reading a new Nevada gardening book. …learning how to “thrive and bloom” in the hot, arid climate of Las Vegas, NV.
Mary Engelbrecht is one of my favorite artists and designers and she always says things and really Punchy ways that stay with you and usually make you laugh when it’s combined with her cute artwork. Much like the cactus that I’m repotting today very carefully with tongs comma and new soil especially for succulents comma I’m learning how to be as Hardy as the cactus I’m planning because Las Vegas Nevada warrants that. Nevada is such a different place then Southern California was-from the weather, to the people who come from all over the world, to the very harsh and merciless climate, and the worst shock- the ghastly way Nevada leaders like Senator Harry Reid people treat people like me who are disabled in the state, which is unforgivable and so wrong.
All that to get cheap rent. You pay a price for that too. Only God knows how long I’ll stay here, while I live here I went to enjoy it to the fullest and become as strong as the little cacti I am transplanting into a bigger pot. Nevada requires you to be as hardy as a saguaro cactus -just like what is abundant in Tucson, Arizona where was born.
Just like Sylvia mardini says and her fantastic article that I gave a link to, if you can have an enthusiasm about what you’re working on everyday and focus on your progress that makes life worth living.
I think I’m the first to Sabal dad the kid that Nevada ever had period in a year’s time I hope to work towards raising the cost of living index for all people who are disabled on SSI or SSDI like I am.
I don’t know if the American with Disabilities Act is supposed to be an active everywhere States but it’s not here. It sure is in Southern California though. To give equal rights for all people, disabled or not, and to see that everybody is treated with dignity and respect is a fight that is Worth Fighting For. If I educate a few people like Senator Harry Reid said that epilepsy is not a disability even when I showed him my Medic Alert bracelet? They wondered why I was upset because I broke my left ankle after being turned down for Paratransit when I’ve had it over 25 years in California? And even after I showed them pictures of my medicine that I take every day and haven’t taken since I was 9 years old they didn’t think it was a disability?
All I can say to that is…. it’s pathetic.
it’s beyond me how someone has to be educated about something so basic and something that a 5th grade kid in school would understand but you have to explain it to Congress people who are supposed to know better and who are supposed to represent all the people of the state?
It’s going to take time but I have that on my side. Is nothing more rewarding and better for me to know that because of my efforts I empowering others, educated others, show people how to think and how to get rid of their old biases, and the best part is by doing that I will have changed the lives of thousands of people who are just as messed up as I was and Justice ridiculed and just as unfairly treated, but they didn’t know how to change the Chain Reaction that’s been going on in Nevada for probably at Millenia. It’s like going to the Wild West we’re people just make their own laws up and don’t stand for what’s the common good is for all people, which is what I think you’re supposed to do.
Aha, I finally found the photo I was looking for that I took when I first relocated to Las VEGAS, NV taken at the campus gardens at UNLV of the blooming cactus.
