Paulette above enjoying her favorite place the Huntington Beach Pier with her photographer friend Jackie Teeple who took this awesome photo of me and my genre is she said in 2012. This is right after I built TotallyInspiredMind.

Below at her favorite Barnes and Noble in the periodical section where she learns more than any other section.

October 2017.

And Paulette Motzko below taken at The Texas Station Casino in Las Vegas, NV. Photo taken October 2017 by one of my security guard friends. Digital Photo Arts by Paulette L Motzko, PLM Studios.

Paulette Le Pore Motzko is a former master piano teacher, transformed, is though by metamorphosis into a professional writer, photographer and digital photo artist, super blogger and marketing consultant.

She loves to cook, tell others how to do new things, inspire others, connect people to needed resources, and act as other people’s advocate and information source.

She was the CEO & Founder of The Epilepsy Connection and helped people in Orange County, Los Angeles, Riverside County and throughout the USA and 3 other countries for many years.

Worked as the Director of the some affiliate the Epilepsy Foundation in Orange County California for a short time. She would have worked there longer but they fired her with a FedEx letter stating that she was helping too many people!

She was going for a 501c3 tax status for The Epilepsy Connection, (which she was diagnosed with at age 9) nearly died 5 times in my life and used to be in a wheelchair.

But through dedicated research on her part, and finding new medication for epilepsy and in incorporating healthier lifestyle habits, herbal therapy, Mind Body Spirit meditation, music therapy, diet and not associating with people who were adding a huge negative impact in her life Paulette Motzko stands strong and tall and is an advocate for all people who are disabled and has a goal of wanting to see that all people on SSI and SSDI are treated with dignity and respect and can afford more than just their basic needs for the quality life as well.
She will always be a disability advocate and is working on three philanthropic ventures that will be monetized soon, will help other people with epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease and cancer all over the world for many years to come.
What she loves doing….

The thing she loves doing is writing Feature Stories for restaurants and food businesses and shooting photos with her 24 MP Nikon D3200 and Nikon 3300 cameras and Samsung note 4 and creating unique, inspiring, high definition image with her Galaxy Note 4 high definition phablet with a 10 GB external hard drive and countless sophisticated photography apps.

Creating what has never been created before is in her DNA and integrity fuels all her life choices.

  1. What a wonderful personalized blog! it really conveys you and your passion. I admire that you advocate for epilepsy awareness. I too, am inflicted with an illness (major depressive disorder and Generalized Anxiety Disorder) and wish to advocate for awareness to remove stigma and get easier accessibility to treatment.

  2. Hi Paulette and thanks for the follow! I enjoyed your post, Some People Really See the Rain and Others Just Get Wet, or something like that. I probably didn’t get it exactly right, but since it’s been raining the past 2-3 days, the title intrigued me. After reading it, it makes me determined to try this as a writing exercise. You have a lot of accomplishments and interests. I look forward to reading more!

      Thank you so much for saying so. It is my labor of love I give the world….because I can.
      The sea is like a church for me…I place I connect with God and all that is good in the world.

      I reloated to the high desert in Nevada and here we are expecting snow!
      So radically different than CA, but the mountains, nice people from all over the world..& cheap housing are a welcome change.

I was published in 2009 and have the follow-up set for next year, but only in the past year connected to blogging. I am trying to utilize the blog, twitter and flickr as a mini-ministry to others–thank you again for the reblog! Looking forward to sharing life’s journey following your postings and praying for you and your work. Luke

    Thank you… I really appreciate that as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.

    Blogging since June 2013, my aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my β€˜point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations, opinions and lighter-hearted stuff thrown in for good measure.

    I normally keep to a couple of posts a day, maybe 3-4 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…

  15. Hi, I just moved from Huntington Beach in January. I lived there 2 years. When I became ill I came back to live with my younger sister. I’ve mended very well. I know I should figure out how to follow, but woe me, I can’t.

    • Hello Paul. I love the picture you chose for your profile photo of the gorgeous German Shepherd; looks like my first dog Sampson. He was an awesome dog.
      I live in southern CA.
      Wherebouts are you located?
      Your words are music to my ears as a writer, plus I am a friendly lady…..not to everyone, but to people who are kind, caring and empathetic and care about the big picture.

      Paulette L Motzko

      • Jean and I are living 4 miles away from Merlin, Oregon. Nearest major city is Grants Pass. Here’s how it came about!

        I met Jean in Mexico, San Carlos – Sonora, in December, 2007 after having been invited to spend Christmas there by Suzann and Don, Californians who have a second home there. Suzann is the sister of Dan and Dan was my West Coast distributor when I was in business selling a word-processing program for the Commodore ‘PET’ between 1978 and 1986. Dan and I are still close friends.

        Jean had been living in San Carlos for a number of years with her American husband who had died in 2005. Anyway, Jean and I discovered quickly that we were both born Londoners; born just 23 miles from each other!

        I moved out with Pharaoh to be with Jean in Mexico in 2008. Then in 2010 we moved to Payson, AZ and subsequently were married. Then in October, 2012 we moved to Oregon because we wanted more land for our dogs. We have 9 dogs, the majority of which are rescue dogs for that was what Jean spent many years doing in Mexico; rescuing Mexican feral dogs and finding homes for them.

        Whoops! Got rather carried away! Pictures of our place in Oregon are here: http://learningfromdogs.com/2014/01/05/picture-parade-twenty-four/

        What’s your story?

    • How are you doing Alma?
      Paulette L Motzko here in southern California. I have to make time to choose the rest of my nominations for The Inner Peace Award and post them.

      I fractured my wrist so I am learning the true meaning of the words “adapt” and “patience”.
      I just got my new Dragon software to work, and now it types what I say right into MS Word Professional, which is like history making stuff to a writer with a fractured wrist, or any writer.

      Look forward to reading more from you and hearing what Ms Thadeau is doing where you are.

      Paulette L Motzko

      • Hi Paulette. So sorry to hear about your wrist. It definitely must be an exercise in patience. I know it would be for me!

        I am interested to know how well the Dragon software is working. If it’s working well, it may be hard to switch back to typing after your wrist has healed! I would love to use it since currently I am mainly just re-typing old journal entries into WordPress and it would make things sooo much easier with my typing skills. Hopefully, I will have some more current content to add sometime soon but, I have recently been on a mission to learn how to knit and have yet to find the time for it …. but, it is just a matter of me making the time. Plus, I am gonna try for a scarf and I live in Miami, so it won’t be too useful right now. I am sure you can relate being in Southern California. Us poor things having to endure all this warm weather! πŸ™‚

        Look forward to your posts as well and will definitely be checking out your cooking site. I am always looking for new things to try out!


        • Thanks Alma for cheering my left wrist, arm and hand to a victorious rehabilitation. I hope the world will watch and be happy when I am making Italian meatballs, breads, pizzas and play piano….type again, and hold my camera…all the great stuff I did before last week, without a thought.

          God bless.

          I will keep you posted how the Dragon software works. I typed my first Word doc using it in the wee hours and haven’t posted it yet.

          Paulette Motzko

        • Here it is about six am now and I am typing this with my thumb in bed with the lights out. Was at the hospital changing the large stint on my left arm that keeps it permanently bent-which really bites because it is very awkward to get dressed etc. I was put on Naproxen to kill pain tonight to see if it works better than Tylenol.
          Did I answer the questions? What were they?
          I will look in my emails again and remember reading a nice note from you, but not questions.

          Looking forward to reading more of your great writing and great photos. Keep the hand and wrist prayers coming as I don’t want to be crippled. My worst fear.

          Paulette Motzko

          • It really sounds like you are going through an ordeal! So sorry in my delayed response. I hope things have improved since you wrote this, but I guess things may be tough for a while with the large stint. I hope the time passes quickly for you to have a speedy recovery!


            • Things have improved and I have a much more comfortable stint on now that allows my left arm to bend at least. It comes middle way up my forearm.
              I went to Anaheim Regional Hospital and it took from 730 pm to 1130 pm to do it, but the staff was far more knowledgeable, competent and compassionate than Huntington Beach Hospital by far.

              I got referrals to see a new neurologist and hand specialist today and will be making apts tomorrow for soonest available.
              I am so happy I met you and you me. It gives me a feeling of warmth to know you care and others are praying and cheering me on to a speedy and full recovery.

        • Hello there…
          Here I am The Huntington Beach Hospital…
          Was diagnosed with PTSD Post Traumatic Stress Disorder due to all the horrible tragic things that happened to me this year. Good things I created of course and everything would be great, if I only had a place to live.

          Even though I have epilepsy and chose to help my mom & dad pay their mortgage for 13 years after my divorce to the rocket scientist….my sister & bro in law threw me on the street like trash in April 2013.

          We and the world know I am far from trash but I need a subsidized housing program since I am ssi.

          Paulette Le Pore Motzko

          • Hang in there Paulette! At least you have blogging and a community of people to share with to help you through this tough time. It doesn’t get much rougher than being in the hospital for PTSD. I struggle everyday to look for the good and find my silver lining. Sometimes it is easy to see and other times I feel so overwhelmed and sad that it is hard to speak without breaking down. I’ll be praying for you and hoping that you find a safe and secure living environment when you get out of the hospital.


            • I am out of the hospital since 430am. Will be leaving this hotel in a few hours. A friend of mine is a cab driver who is going to pick me up at noon and take me to my storage unit place where I have 3 storage vaults with my world inside. The extra bags will go in there and my other friend is coming back from Oceanside and will be back this evening. I will be staying with him at his place.

              This has been strategically thought out a thousand times.
              I do writing for a client and marketing and the $400 check I was counting on did not come in. Because of this theres no more $ for a hotel and lets say I am pissed with the client.
              I write stories on CARestaurantShowCase.com and do other writing & photography jobs. Wish they were more plentiful and people said YES quicker!

              Thanks for your prayers and support.

    • How nice to meet you via Word Press. I have been playing around in the wee hours of the morning trying to give my site here a new look. I played around with a few I really liked, but couldn’t make the other templates do what I wanted them to, so I went back to the iTheme by Apple that I customized. There is an image I found that I wanted to appear as the background image, but haven’t got it to save for some goofy reason. Heading to bed! I do some of my best work in the wee hours and it is quiet with no interruptions.
      IS your name Magdalena Ratajczak?
      Are you Polish?

      My ex-husband is -which is where the “Motzko” came from. My maiden name is Le Pore and it is part of who I am so I use both.

    Paulette Motzko here writing to you from a Marie Calendars that my ex and I used to go to when times were good years ago.
    The uncle you said to bless, I did because he was dying of cancer but due to my evil sister and brother and law saying horrible things about me before I arrived, I was told to leave there a few days after I got there!
    My trip to AZ was the trip from hell.
    I am looking at a few places now in San Bernadino County, after asking questions in City Hall and The Chamber of Commerce. I am going to take a look at a place this week that sounds like it could work out. I hope it does, so I can simply LIVE and have PEACE OF MIND.

  25. Paulette, I’m grateful for the reblog, follow and the like “We are Jewels” as well as the opportunity to visit your blog. Many Blessing to you and your new home in Tucson. I’m wondering if I’ll be in Arizona some day because the thought of moving there as entered my mind often.

    • Hello again,
      I am ot sure what your name is other than “feelingjoy”.
      I long for the time when I can feel joy again. I was evicted from my place next to my mom over two weeks ago by my evil brother in law who took the power of attorney thing to a level it was never supposed to be.

      I have been living out of hotels, maxing out the money that would nave been used as rent money, for my phone and other needs on hotels instead. I am at a Denny’s by my old house talking to people who know me here about the so called “family” I have and trying to think of something good.

      On the up side, I will be getting a fully furnished one bedroom one bath apartment in Santa Ana, CA but it won’t take place until June 1st. Meanwhile I am awaiting a check that will pay for the ticket for the Greyhound bus outta here and to the kind and loving arms of my uncle in Tucson, AZ, a man who hasn’t forgotten the meaning of the word family.

      It is so ironic. I have been carrying around a huge statue of the Virgin Mary that wouldn’t fit into a storage vault and somehow gave me peace from hotel to hotel.
      I know homeless people don’t carry around Nicole Lee suitcases and Nikon camera cases and have two computers. For all good purposes that is what I was made.

      My great friends who are my family, have said I should sue my sister and brother in law for doing this to me. I have spent over $1000 in storage costs, hotels and the anguish and harassment for over a year.

      Aside from my mother, who doesn’t know any of this is going on-due to having Alzheimer’s disease, my family has nothing to do with blood lines but in the act words and deeds of the wonderful people I know. I will move on and after June things will be great. But not, it is far from it.

      • Hi Paulette. I apologize for not responding sooner! Thank you for your note. I’ve been in the process of downsizing and moving. Not something I particularly wanted to do. I’ve had mixed emotions. The positive thing is letting go of attachments to things and items can always be replaced when needed. I understand the family thing and something I’m working on as well. I believe there was a reason why your statue of the Virgin Mary must be traveling with you. Pray to Mary, she is a mother to all us. Remember homeless is not what you are and is something you’ve only experienced. We mustn’t identify with labels because our ongoing thoughts and words create our outer experiences. How wonderful for you that you have an uncle to help you. Bless him. Paulette, remember to stay focus on the positive and have gratitude in the midst of all that is going on. I know this is easy said than done because this is something I’ve had to work on myself when I feel fear, anger, resentment and… Changing one’s outer experiences comes from changing one’s consciousness and in order to change one’s consciousness they must uncover their beliefs and be willing to look at their patterns. I’ve had many beliefs I’ve accepted from my childhood (emotional wounds) that I’ve worked at undoing and at times these beliefs can creep back in! When they do I must get to work with the tools I’ve been given. Our childhood wounds follow us into our adult years and these wounds keep us stuck and can be the cause to why we are experiencing things we wish didn’t have to. Are you in Arizona? My email is pgholz@tx.rr.com if you would like to write back. Blessings to you! Pam
