I already signed this existing petition which allows you to voice your opinion about how Trump is handling things as President.
It’s all done digitally and takes about 3 minutes to sign digitally.
1 million signatures are needed so share it everywhere if you feel strongly about Freedom, the Integrity of our people as American citizens, and want to see that our children grow up an environment where they look up to their elders and are not disgusted by them instead.
Give me long enough and I can usually find the answer to most anything.
I’m kind of like a white paper in writing, in that I try tout find the answer or solution in most every situation, finding positive solutions to problems or simply enhancing the quality of people’s personal and work lives.

Me choosing scrumptious subtlety sweet Italian Lemon Cream Cake at Fellini’s Italian Restaurant at the Stratosphere by candlelight late at night
which is something I typically don’t do as I go to bed pretty early and get up pretty early, but something told me to just go out and enjoy my Thanksgiving the day before all the crowds blocked the freeway getting down to the strip today on Thanksgiving. So, since I took a nap and got extra sleep I was able to go out down to Roxy’s Diner where I have lots of friends who work there, and it’s always a wonderful time there and I had an open faced turkey sandwich, which was almost a Thanksgiving dinner! It was so big that I’m going to be in the leftovers today.
The photo that miraculously had enough power, even on power saver to make possible.
I didn’t take my usual three batteries for my Note 4, and didn’t really want to sit at Starbucks doing work like I usually do, OR carry a bunch of “junk” with me that weighs a ton, like I usually do. We all need balance in life and we need to maximize every area of our life be it personal , work, spiritual and physical exercise too.
It’s good to do something out of the ordinary and be spontaneous once in awhile and communicate with people, not take an earpiece purposely, even if you like to listen to music on a playlist through the day or whatever, but just connect with life and the living.
I know I made everyone else’s Thanksgiving extraordinary that I went out of my way to communicate with in a totally genuine way, and every time I did that Joy came back at me like I have a boomerang.
They hire people who are really wonderful and kind and go out of their way at The Stratosphere anyway. It was fun to go up to police officers, security guards, people who were traveling from other states, people who sat alone, and people who are doing heavy manual labor jobs and purposely wish them a very blessed Thanksgiving.
People who do that kind of work NEED KINDNESSS most of all because they do their job with smiles on their faces but quite often get lost in the shuffle of life.
It’s nice when one person looks their name tag and thinks enough of them to call them my name and let them know that they’re important. Things like that can make a difference in somebody’s life.
May you all have a most blessed Thanksgiving and carry the spirit of Thanksgiving with you every day throughout the year.

When I heard this song play this afternoon I remembered the opening of the movie with a feather that was done with CGI Graphics that was blowing all over the place through town, landing on the bench where Forrest Gump was sitting.
I remember so vividly in technicolor and have that beautiful image playing in my mind like the movie did.
Combined with the beautiful soundtrack music that Alan Silvestri wrote, “I Am Forrest Gump”, it will always move and inspire me. The music Only lasts for 2 minutes but it’s a glorious 2 minutes!
I can still remember remember it as though it was yesterday.
I also remembered that I bought the sheet music to it, actually Mark bought it for me (my ex-husband) and I was trying to find it the other day. But it was lost in my sea of sheet music. ALL THOSE YEARS OF TEACHING PIANO I COLLECTED a Lot of sheet music. It’s unfortunate though, that sometimes I can’t find what I am looking for!
I considered the song lost in my sea of sheet music, and decided I would simply do as I always did before I learned how to read sheet music which is just sit down, listen and play what I heard.
I put it on a loop on Spotify and tried to play by the sing by ear instead! AND TO MY ELATED SURPRISE, I DID.
The motto of the story is- shoot for the best that you can do in this world and then just try because the best that can happen is you just might do it!

It’s no matter that I have lived in Las Vegas, NV several years now with the dust blowing around me and the rocks beneath my feet; it will always be summer in my heart and soul.
Me below at the Starbucks in The Stratosphere. The photo was taken a few days ago on the 11th of November.
I was born in Tucson, Arizona, also the desert Southwest, but for over 40 years of my life. Southern California was my home.
I was old enough to truly appreciate the blue expanse of the Pacific Ocean around me, the palm trees calm of the beautiful flowers and all of the other extraordinary scenery of California.
It is where I went elementary school, Middle School, High School and college graduate School. Where I was married and 15 years later unfortunately divorced. But it’s also where I began discovering who I really was deep inside after being true to my inner voice, as I call my intuition.
I would love to lease a place there and yet keep my place in Vegas. That way, I could enjoy the uniqueness of both and do work with my old clients and discover new ones.
There are no perfect places to live, but ones that can never be forgotten, like the special people who have helped make me who I am.
I hope that what’s coming for me is like my paper whites blooming with twice the blooms they were supposed to have, my goals exceeding my expectations.

What you put out in the universe is even more important now than ever.
What vibe are you giving out to the world?
Is it good?
Is it bad?
Or is it a different?
Indifference or apathy is the worst crime of all in my opinion.
Treat others like you want to be treated, with dignity, with respect and know that colors are invisible in the eyes of God.

Here’s a note about the sparking American flag I used in the photo here….
It is one of my grandmother’s cherished pins she used to wear. She was my mother’s mother and singlehandedly raised her children on her own due to my grandfather James Hubert Hart dying of spinal meningitis when my mother was four years old.
Mom said the day that she finally realized that she was alive was the day she overheard someone talking about who is getting all the kids, and what houses they were all going to because Grandma couldn’t afford to take care of them all herself.
Grandma wasn’t afraid to take a man’s job in a time when it was was very unpopular for a woman to rivet airplanes -but she did.
There wasn’t anything that could stop my grandmother Ruby Hart.
She was proud to be an American citizen and so appreciative of everything that you ever did for her— just like my mother.
That’s why when she had Alzheimer’s disease-like my mother had, untiL she touched the face of God nearly a year ago I didn’t think anything of helping taking care of her.
I bought her big print Readers Digest books to encourage her to talk and keep her mind active…and they did.
She read one of them every day … so I bought more for her and she smiled as she read each story.
I found them at local libraries and we would talk about the stories in each story, which would inspire her to tell me about her life recalling memories of when she was younger.
I don’t have a digital image of Grandma-yet’ but I’ll create one for this story I didn’t know I was going to write, until writing the first sentence!
I know we have our trouble in America, but when you compare us to other countries- it’s pretty damn nice country anyway you look at it. We have precious freedoms another country can match.
I didn’t say God Bless America because I wanted everyone no matter who they were to be able to relate to the image and the meaning behind image.
I’m Christian so I’ll always say God Bless America, but as an empowered lady I would love to see all of us all over the world worry less about religion & culture and focus more about just treating each other kindly and know everyone has a right to believe what they feel strongly about.
As long as they are not hurting you or anyone then let him believe it if they find solace and peace through it.
Uniting as living, breathing people who have the power to good-is my dream for not only America but for the world.
