Our lives are like chapters in a huge, adventure-packed book

Me last year before Christmas 2016 sitting reading what was a prop that had nothing in it but it look good for the picture, at the JC Penney Photography Studio. As I was going through things recently I ran into this 8 x 10 that was never framed.

It is my favorite of all of the many taken and I had it done for me to put near my desk to remind me that my book would be in print this year- which is my goal.

Life is like a book in each part of your life is like the chapters for the seasons in the year. As we get older we go through different seasons in our life and this we go through various experiences, we grow as people and gain wisdom and newfound intelligence.

How would you describe the chapter that you’re in in your life right now? Would any of you care to form a sentence in printed here in the comment box?

I got mine on Amazon Prime for my birthday for my Las Vegas, Nevada balcony  after looking at hundred’s of options. 

Below a photo I took off the box…

Today is my birthday and it’s in the box and gorgeous looking.

 I didn’t like the way that topsy-turvy things look they look like trash bags upside down or something.

I everything’s available on Amazon Prime, with exception to a really handsome Italian single guy with a bow on him!

From CNN: Axelrod: Trump goes to Texas and doesn’t mention the victims with Comments by Paulette L. Motzko

Axelrod: Trump goes to Texas and doesn’t mention the victims.

He’s a walking buffoon! When I saw the first pictures of him that I’ve seen in well since the last post I made about him.

When I heard the words that came out of his mouth which were, “oh what a great crowd we have here”..  I’m thought “what the hell is wrong with you -you moron!”

 I have to censor the other words that I said, because it upset me so badly. How could someone be so stupid and apathetic in the midst of a national catastrophe of the magnitude is beyond me.

 All of these extraordinary, wonderful people have and they are trying to do the best they can.

 The people of Texas don’t want to hear about what a crowd it is, they don’t want to know about things like that. Those ravaged people were the crowd and many were homeless and under great stress. They simply needed help.

 And if somebody showed up on an airplane and is the “President” by God they better talk action. He didn’t even mention what he’s going to do. Trump is a bumbling idiot as the president of the United States. 

Maybe TRUMP has a trillion businesses, I really don’t care  but he’s lousy and a failure as president.

Hopefully this will lead to his impeachment and I hope it does.

I hope it shows once and for all that the character of the president of the United States is unfit to be.

 I don’t want to be president, nor could my health handle the stress. I can guarantee though,  if when I got off the airplane I could said something better than  he did. 

I don’t even think he thought of why he went, what his purpose was, or what his powers are as president to create an action plan for these people to rehabilite their lives and  their communities. 

Trump should have thought of that huh?

Everybody on every news station is saying the same thing; I am not alone here in my feelings. 

A psychologist was saying it sounded political and he had no empathy whatsoever; he was heartless.

When God made Donald Trump I don’t know what God stuck in his head, but it definitely wasn’t a brain OR HEART OR SOUL.

Story from CNN News.

This is why I don’t watch the news everyday! -And I thought I was going to do the dishes 3 hours ago.

When I see things like this I have to get on my band box. I am tech savvy and know that my words inspire and educate.

I guess it’s all about priorities in this world. the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few here so I knew that my dishes would wait in the sink and they’re not going to go anywhere and they will get done. People with needs far are outweighed those silly dishes. Now when I go to the dishes really quickly or load the dishwasher, I know that I did my part to help others and to make a donation to help some family somewhere that I will never see as long as I live but I don’t care I know I made a difference I put something out there good and Noble and kind and the more people that put good and Noble and kind out the better world we have.

I could immediately put resources out there that we connect people to the right help in their area from the Red Cross. So that’s aired right now. When I see things like the tragic pictures of all the people in Texas , and I’ve got a friend that lives there just spoke to her on the phone today  and she was we were all praying together via telephone thank God The Rains of stopped  for a little while anyway and the sun came out Hosanna.

I can hear people talking in the other room on CNN on my Samsung Smart TV and everybody is saying repeatedly the Trump show no empathy whatsoever they’re all saying it in different ways but that’s what they’re saying and they’re also saying he’s not a good leader they’re saying the people in Texas were very disgusted with them as they should be. Everyone was looking for Solutions as I would be if I were them. See the trouble is this doesn’t surprise me because Trump is Bill like a turnip Trump has no soul or heart he was a businessman that will walk all over anybody for money and he has no leadership qualities nor is he a good human being and he’s a racist. None of those are good qualities I don’t care what your political Viewpoint is none of those are good qualities and they sure aren’t good qualities if you’re sitting in the president’s seat.
Food for thought:

What can you do today that is good?

What can you do today that is kind?

What can you do today that is considered Noble?

May God bless you, whoever is reading this may you have health of Body Mind and Spirit, and may you have priests and may you have serenity and your soul.


THE SUN CAME OUT IN HOUSTON: From CNN: Untold number trapped as thousands of homes still flooded in Texas. 

Written and compiled by

 Paulette L. Motzko. 

Photography by Paulette L. Motzko.

I talked to my dear friend Brittany today after a text came in, like an SOS code saying “The Rain Stopped and The Sun Came Out”………..
 I had call Brittany and talk by phone.

 I had masses said at The Association of Marian of The Immaculate Conception for my her and her family and all the people at risk in Texas.

 I was happy to hear my prayers and hers were partially answered -a little bit-because they were safe and the flooding subsided on their street subsided. 

There is much to be done, and as I watch CNN News, the destruction that Texas has gone through is one of the worst I’ve ever seen in any state any time in my life.

 I will continue praying and backing my prayers with proactive efforts to see about raising money for those in Texas. and doing everything I am able to.

  I just did some searching on the internet and found the Red Cross website.


The Red Cross is doing extraordinary things there in Texas for all the people gorgeous placed and have nowhere to go and in some cases have no home. Was completely destroyed in the flood.

I made a donation via the Internet with they’re secured server.

If you can afford to give even $1 it all adds up.

If you are tech-savvy and computer savvy see what you can do on your end.

 Even though I don’t live in Texas I don’t have to live in Texas to care. 

You don’t have to live in Texas to help the many displaced families and have your heart go out to them when you see them have nowhere to go and nowhere to call HOME.

 All we need is a heart and a soul in a mind and a will to act and do the right thing.

Prayers are not over but more like a a VIGIL for TEXAS to have needs supplied to of the people who live there.

I have CNN news on TV right now and first time I’ve seen pictures, really awesome aerial shots of the Houston area- my God awful! 

It is wonderful to hear about people coming together and helping one another in times like this. 

Sometimes tragedies bring out the best  in people people become stronger as a whole, like a huge team helping one another. It’s very heartwarming.

I’m going to do some research and see what ways people can donate to help the people there because they’re so many families with little kids that have nowhere to live. 

 You can make a difference if you’re able to by donatING to 


 to help the people for basic needs and also shelter until they get their places back to normal. God it’s one of the worst disasters that ever seen it’s so sad to see these pictures because it makes me want to help them and I will help them. 

Even if in a small way I help one family by something they need in that makes me happy.

There’s stories right now in the breaking news which I have my Samsung Smart TV set to I think 10,000 people that have nowhere to live there and countless people are Stranded by the flooding from that rotten stinking hurricane Harvey ravaged to town of Huston.

I want to find out how much Blackfoot Indian I have in me because I can relate so much to Native American Wisdom and the wonderful but simple philosophy they live by. 

My Nanny’s mother was Blackfoot Indian, who was my great grandmother. I have been asked numerous times if I am related to Blackfoot Indian tribe where if I am Blackfoot Indian by people it’s really uncanny.

Westerners could learn a lot from them if they would only take the TIME to LISTEN.

Create a Special Prayer Place to Connect With God and Your Soul by Paulette Le Pore Motzko

In this audio prayer the lady from England  (I have searched her name and don’t know yet), has a greenhouse in England that they turned into a place of Worship. I can envision that so easily because when I lived in southern California the beach was always that for me and in beautiful, wide open places with lush foliage. 

Here in Las Vegas I created my Desert Oasis and I go there and am aware of what it like to nurture something from nothing and watch it grow and flourish. I have a philisophical mind and as I care for my big Callas lily on my kitchen table where the sun can shine it’s rays on it, it nurtures me by making me smile at its pink tubular blooms.

I buit a double decked cactus rock garden on the 4th of July of this year because it was a symbol of new life and rebirth for me.

On my balcony at night with Mason Jars lit magically as though they had fireflies in them with solar powered light’s that get their power from the sun and solar batteries.

It really is about the moments in life and what you bring to them-for yourself only and every special person you care about.

In my spare room a touch of life in a simple white planter on a bamboo tray…..

 It was the day a year before I discovered my dear mom was dying and she passed away the next day touching the Face of God.  It was like the sun and stars ceased to be that day and the way I was told was by my sister in law on a Facebook instant messaging chat box!

Yesterday the same impersonal way I discovered a long standing friend passed away by seeing RIP on her picture! !!

Sometimes I think that no Facebook is good Facebook because all there is is drama on it and sometimes people lose track of the very personal voice-to-voice face-to-face relationships you have a normal life.

I knew people could be low but that was the polar opposite of compassion,  sensitivity, class and integrity. The opposite of what I stand for.

No matter what we go through in life-big things, little things, great things or bad; a special prayer sanctuary keeps you centered, and makes you realize what and who matters.

In the Tree of Life she passed on many of her talents to me: cooking, writing,  playing piano, singing, and art. I don’t paint with paints buy I create artistic images to inspire with my digital cameras, imagination, God’s influence and tender loving care. I resemble her and my dimeaner was like her, always seeing the good and cheering up the sad or forgotten.

Though difficult at times, we move forward saying goodbye to people we never wanted to, and hello to new ones.

Like chapters in an extraordinary story we wrote passages in our books every day.

What will your chapter say in your book of life.

Malfunctioning Photo Uploader: I Left a Voicemail on Automattic Inc’s Voicemail: 1-877-273-3049 about the Inefficient Uploader on TotallyInspiredMind.com.

When you pay what I do for running 10 blogs on Automattic Inc.’s WordPress web platform and I not only want every function of every Web site I bought domains for through them to be functional but I think I should get some kind of a corporate package deal on all of them. That’s what I just told one of the directors with Automattic Inc. I told them it’s good business to do something like that as well as  a way of saying thanks for being one of the top rated  bloggers  in the WordPress Empire blogosphere. Their website development firms give packages like that so I don’t know why in the heck they can’t start, I think the good thing about them employing  something like that is that more people would create multiple blogs and Automattic Inc. would make more money through as a result of it; they wouldn’t lose money doing doing it.

 The open mouth doesnt get fed in this world and people who are not assertive don‘t get

I never intended on creating a venerable Empire on WordPress when I created TotalltInspiredMind.com, one site led to another gradually over time.

 I hoped my concept would be embraced by the world and I would make it flourish and grow.

Now after many years and blogger awards, Totally Inspired Mind is covering the globe in popularity now. I can’t believe the new countries they are reading it cuz I look at my stats everyday. It shocks even me.

It took a lot of work, and it wasn’t chance that I made it became that way. I spent thousings of woman-hours putting of search engine optimization tagging,  categorizing, restructuring  analyzing the way the site looks, and hoping to air content that uplifts, educates and changes people’s minds. The stories I share by other writers help to add interest and jazz up the site with new views too and help me grow as a human being while creating new writer alliances and friendships.

I’ll go back in my call history and write down what the automatic ink phone number is so if you want to simply just call the thing tell him your name spell your first and last name make sure they know what it is, no ifs ands or buts, tell them your email address because that’s how they find you in the system and then select number 6. 

Automattic Inc. 1-877-273-3049.

They are located in San Francisco California.

That will take you to voice prompt we can State your problem and then what they will do is either email you and I’m asking for a call back and I hope that. Stay tuned.

I hope I sharing Automattic Inc’s phone number in this article -you will be able to streamline time and not have to text back and forth to their so-called happiness Engineers -which I think you’re less than sub-standard, as one nearly destroyed my most popular award-winning site just because they didn’t have my right credit card information! 

 That will go down in history as the dumbest  thing I’ve ever heard of company do other than some of the things Verizon stuff  by showing it doesn’t care about the people that serves  and treating them like second-class garbage.

People in big business don’t ever text back and forth and they do things really quickly and efficiently and voice to voice is about as efficient as you can get. 

There’s a different way of speaking in a communicating when you talk to someone then writing it’s totally different. You can hear vocal intonation, stressing different words and they can hear attitude in your words which you will never get in a text plus texting is impersonal.

Don’t you agree?
So I hope to save you time so you can do whatever things  and get onto writing more and blogging more and creating something extraordinary that people can read it remember – that’s where I want invest my time.

Anyone else having upload problems?

Sure, my site is largely picture based, but when you buy a business plan it’s Unlimited unlimited photos and video. 

I saw it move gradually here at 

2:04 p.m. The WordPress photo uploader for pictures is moving as slow as a crawling a slug, but every now and then it uploads. Customer service for WordPress, here I come!

In order to call them I am destrying the image so it quits uploading. My time is too previous to waste it.

I am starting to get upset because my photos are not uploading again. 

I doubt it’s a T-Mobile issue because I have the fastest browser made and my Note 4 is unlimited talk text email and 4G unlimited data unlimited web and it usually looks like a fast rocket spaceship and so does my Actel Wireless Router.

I’ve never had uploaded shoes with it yet but I have had uploaded shoes with WordPress maxing me up when I reach when I had a business plan all along someone have to call WordPress and find out what’s going on.

From CNN: Tree-planting drones hope to fight deforestation

This is more like it, news like this about biocarbon engineering, are positive directives for the future. I hope trends like this will be the way of the future. 

These drones along with their operators, want to plant 1 billion trees and combat deforestation, which we very badly need in the world.

 I’ve never heard of biocarbon engineering, but you can figure out what it means if you know suffixes and prefixes and then put all the pieces together.

 It’s so wonderful to see drones that could potentially be throwing bombs destroying something, instead, take a positive turn and do something  really wonderful for the world.

There are extraordinary things happening every day; the good stories just don’t make Channel 2 Channel 4 and Channel 7 News.

From CNN: Billy Joel dons Jewish star against Neo-Nazis

Another reason I love Billy Joel isn’t simply for his exceptional talent but that he made a point in a way that people cannot forget. He also had the courage to stand up and make a point.

I will be so happy when Trump is impeached because he will be. There’s no way in hell that our country can condone the leader like Trump he’s not a leader he’s an aggressor and a blatant perpetrator of evil far as I’m concerned. He’s not Hitler but he might as well be.

If left in the position of power Trump just might be, which is why, with all the disgruntled Senators, news reporters and others who are very disgusted with a guy who’s filling the seat where they’re supposed to be a real president.

From CNN: Clapper questions Trump’s fitness for office

Me and countless others have questioned “Trump’s Fitness for Office”, so speak way before he ever was elected, and believe me I prayed he wasn’t, along with all of my friends. 

That has to be the most euphemistic way to put it though “Fitness for Office”…

I’m hoping that by next year 2018 Trump will have been impeached by popular demand.

Polly’s Stone Ground Whole Wheat Honey Master Bread Recipe for Baguette, Boule- or Ciabatta

This recipe took 4 hours to prepare, to write it, photograph it, then storyboard it. The bread doesn’t take that long to make though! It’s very easy but you’ll need a sturdy mixer like KitchenAid, a good quality metric scale like Cuisinart and a large work area preferably marble to work on and some TIME.

Connie Pritchett’s Story of Triumph, Resiliency & Wisdom 

Image of Connie Pritchett with her cat Star, used with permission.

When I was a little girl, I lost my dad at age 11, and my mom, could not take care of us, and so I had to give up, both of my parents,   and so I went into a Foster home, there was noone else to take care of me,  so I was all alone,  and  My Foster parents were up in age, and it was obvious to me, that I would lose them too.  

 I felt like there was little hope for my situation… it seemed like everyone around me, had their parents.  And it began to take a toll on my health… 

But I was in church,   which was the one thing that kept me going… and somehow… I heard this scripture:  

All things work together for good to them that love the Lord, and and are called according to his purpose…. Romans 8:28.  

So I repented, and gave my heart to the Lord. 

When I heard that scripture, it served as a foundation for me, and I knew that somehow, someway.. things would work out, and   this scripture… is still on my refrigerator.. today. 

And I totally believe, that life averages out… when we set our minds.. our hearts.. and ask Jesus to come into our hearts… 

I have lived a wonderful, blessed, life… 
 With love to all.

Thank You from Paulette Motzko to the 26 New Followers in The Last 30 Days.

I would have more followers but I hear there’s no “follow me” button. I will be working on enhancing the features on the site to make that possible. 

The great news is that my followers are tried-and-true, they are genuine, they are intelligent extraordinary individuals whose talents even defy my own comprehension at times. What I envisioned when I created this site in 2012 has become literal reality that is even superseded what my vision was of the best for the site. Every follower every reader has come back like a magnet attrated for all the right reasons -because I am genuine and as what am I long-standing Facebook friends Maria Lourdes Lipardo told me-“you are so transparent”. At the time she said it I didn’t quite know what that meant. Now years later I call it a high compliment.

The world is full of far too many Yes Men comply or go along with a crowd. I’ve never been that kind of person I always have been an individualist.

Because I was misunderstood as a child, I am the quickest to try and understand others, and another person’s point of view. Matters to me to understand communication is Paramount. Just as I was telling a nice lady at the station casino Grand Cafe earlier last night:

We’re all connected on the planet no matter what race color creed. It really doesn’t matter what our faith is but that we believe in something greater than ourselves we treat others with dignity. We don’t need to be like one another, life would be boring if we were. We can learn from each other’s differences and grow as people.

The sun is coming up here in Las Vegas now when I can see the white flowers on the huge Bush surrounding my picture windows blooming. I live upstairs and like it because I’m the one making the noise and its private and I can have a garden on my balcony and go out there anytime and be in my “desert oasis” I created over time.

As I was looking at my statistics here I noticed the atlas of the world filling in with the readership from Canada and many other countries that never read my blog prior. 

Makes me a really feel gratified to know that the many hours that I invest in this site is appealing to all people and has become quite universal.

Thank you for all your contributions and comments app for putting a smile on my face everyday.

May every single person who reads this be blessed.

My heart goes out to all the dead and injured in Barcelona.

I’m not on Twitter that off and only because of the mini notifications that I get on it from people all over and it just wipes out my cell phone battery. I recently reinstalled it and on the news just now came this bulletin about the terrible chilling rampage in Barcelona which is ghastly! My sincerest condolences go out to the families of the 13 confirmed dead and the estimated right now 3 up to 100 people have been seriously injured. Sincerely hope that these tragedies and one day because it is getting tiresome to hear about innocent people lives being lost.
