Totally Inspired Mind I’d my Gift To The World….where the beautiful and extraordinary people, places and events are found. It is a place for creative and positive people who enjoying giving something back to the world-simply because they can.

It is a place where racism doesn’t exist-I hope I see that day- and all people are treated equally and kindness, love, and compassion are promoted- because that’s the DNA of my soul.

Me sitting here by a digital poker game Arizona Charlies that I was to win 20 bucks on with my friend Leo’s $5!

I’m so thankful that I met so many wonderful and extraordinarily talented, gifted people because I created the blogTotally Inspired Mind: Where Positive Minds Congregate.

80 countries to date are reading on a regular basis. I am so pleased that my brain child is so dearly embraced and loved by the people in the world.
It’s success far exceeded my expectations.

Last week there were 740 views, 485 visitors, and 304 likes.

I wish I could sit down with all of you and enjoy a nice, hot pot of tea and interesting conversation or coffee and home made Italian biscotti and talk about your hopes, your dreams, and your aspirations. I hear about the things you’re all doing with your many diverse lives and with the help of the Internet we are connected.

May each our today the matter if it be morning noon or night where you are, be one that gives you joy and peace.

Sincerely,

Who Needs a Good Morning Hug? Hug The One You’re With & You’ll be Hugged Too!

image

Good morning to all the 1,507 followers of Totally Inspired Mind: Where Positive Minds Congregate.
Thank you for sharing the stories, points and words of wisdom I write and hand select each day.

When you wake up in the morning don’t just run to get your morning cup of coffee (like I swear by) but show LOVE and THOUGHTFULNESS to every person who is in your path.

Set the coffee maker up the night before, make lunches the night before, set your clothes and accessories out & even take a shower the evening before (it will relax your muscles and help you sleep better), so all you do is wake up, be grateful you did wake up for another day on this great planet we share, and drink coffee (or tea or whatever you like), pray, meditate and get ready.

Allow yourself TIME so you can relax and NOT HURRY. Hug your significant other and tell your kids you love them as they head for school & work.
Show yourself you love yourself enough to give yourself TIME the night before and when you awaken so YOUR ATTITUDE will be BRIGHT along with the RISING SUN..

Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them. – Marcus Aurelius

“Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them” – Marcus Aurelius

How do you interpret Marcus Aurelius’ poetic phrase “running with the stars”?

I interpret it to mean when you have absolute no tension in yourr body and joy in your heart and soul.

That for me would be it used to be playing my upright grand piano or writing a new piece of music or a new musical composition-lyrics & music in endless combinations. Now it is having an eye for the special in the ordinary..and writing and embelling what I write with the photos I take..sometime the other way around. Another simple joy is when I see a photo emerge in my mind’s eye, as though I am looking through my Nikon camera….like here on Christmas night…

image

Walking the pier-any pier-and breathing in the sea air and seeing the seagulls soar, or creating a dish that people can enjoy all over the world.
That is how I “run with the stars”….

How do you?

image

When was the last time you “ran with the stars”, so to speak, as Marcus Aurelius so poetically said?

Thank you to the 500 Wonderful, Intelligent, Loving & Caring Followers on Totally Inspired Mind-Happy Thanksgiving!

Have a peaceful and happy Thanksgiving everybody!
Remember it isn’t important how lumpy your gravy is that goes with the turkey, but that you are blessed enough to have turkey to eat.

Nobody cares about the dust on your furniture but sitting with you on the couch or chair and talking and visiting with YOU.

You don’t have to be a carbon copy of Martha Stewart (I hope there aren’t any walking around anywhere!), but listen to your inner voice and be true to yourself. Do what you can afford, not what your neighbor does.

Life isn’t a contest or a relay race.

Slow down.

Smile more.

image

If you can’t be with your family, be with loved ones around you who care about you, support you in act, word and deed.

Look around your table, instead of what’s on the table.

Hold hands.

Pray in your own way.

Say you love the one who is sitting with you.
If you have nobody to celebrate with, as I almost did, until my friend Mike Darras called and invited me to a wonderful turkey dinner….volunteer in a senior home to help in cook or serve or do something. You will be appreciated and nobody will eat alone.

If there were a table that would seat all the followers of this site…or a room that would seat all of you, it would be a huge ampitheater.

Thank you all for being dedicated readers of what I create.

I am thankful God gave me many talents of writing, photography and cooking and I am thankful for all 500 of you my readers.

God bless you all.

I Am Thankful For My 473 Wonderful, Dedicated Followers of Totally Inspired Mind: Where Positive Minds Congregate

It is so inspiring, touching and rewarding for me to see the continual positive responses from people for this web site I began a year ago. Creating it opened a world of possibilities. I finally had a podium I could use to write about topics like how we are all connected on the planet, no matter what race or creed, homelessness and the need to see that all people live lives with dignity, having their basic needs met.
Topics such as preserving our planet’s resources, the environment, mentoring are all special passions of mine as well.

Through the wonderful world of WordPress.com I am able to reblog other articles and photos and quotes I feel are extraordinary as well. Most of the time I get to know the creator of the articles/posts I syndicate, which is gratifying because it expands my knowledge as a human being and I learn from other’s experiences.

I will be adding pictures to this later on and adding more to this post.

I am baking Thanksgiving Cookies that will be used for a story I am going to write that will appear on my site called “Children Are Our Future Now!”

I hope that the citizens of the world can unite to help the 1200 who died in the typhoon in The Philippines. There is a link in another post showing how you can donate medical supplies and other needed things there through UNICEF.

I also hope the storn bypasses Vietnam entirely and dissipates like harmless water vapor. Mother Nature has done enough damage for now.

Good morning everyone!

Here it is 523 a.m….way earlier than I usually get up, but I have to be at the bus stop by 6 am ish to go to Tustin where my 3 storage vaults containing my life will be moved to another closer to me with lights, saving me nearly $200 a month, until my place is ready to move into.

Off to make my cappuccino with espresso…..

I hope everything goes smoothly today and I hope you all have a fantastic day!

What kind of artistic ability do you have?

Are you doing something with it today?

If not, it might be a good idea to go get a canvas and paint or draw or write, or compose a song, or create a culinary masterpiece, or write the novel you have been talking about.

As long as we are always creating, learning and becomining someone more than we were before, life will never be boring and we will never grow old in mind or body.-

Look How Far You’ve Come…

So often we are so busy trying to achieve major goals in our life that we forget to look and see just how far we have come.

What goal have you been working on?

How did you mark your progress on that goal?

Did you reward yourself on smaller time markers as you stay on track, working to achieve what you set out to do?

It could be a college degree, losing weight or reading a book and doing the exercises in the book.

Thank You Don Charisma For Awarding me The Inner Peace Award and Sunshine Awards

ImageI want to simply say a whopping Thank You to all my many readers all over the world on Totally Inspired Mind: Where Positive Minds Congregate. I was laying down and writing on my Android MyTouch phone, and since I wasn’t quite tired, I simply turned the light on and got on my laptop. In the still and quiet of the night I have no interruptions and when it is quiet I can hear my soul speak. You can quote me on that.

When I accepted The Inventive Blogger Award, I told 15 interesting facts about myself, and some were tragic. The point I wanted to make here, in the 10 things I will tell about myself, is I am not a tragic person. Those things don’t define me. I don’t let them define me.

1. I love going to the beach and walking on the pier, any pier at all from Huntington Beach to Newport Beach, Seal Beach and its quaint, neighborhood-like feel or Corona Del Mar. 2. I love main streets anywhere….there is so much history there and you can learn so much about the town you are in there.

3. I see the potential in everyone I meet and the possibilities in every situation. That is just me. It is who I am.

4. I do my best on everything I set out to do. Basketball is the only sport I really like and enjoy, mainly because the guys aren’t killing each other! 😉 I picture myself throwing a basketball in a hoop that is over the heavens and making it in. Even if I get slightly under the hoop, it will still be damn good!

5. I love kids and mentoring people to do what I have already done and succeeded at. It gives me joy, strength from within to know I can help show someone how to do something they will never forget that will impact their life in a great way.

6. Starbucks, Peet’s Coffee & Tea, The Corner Bakery Cafe, and The Chocolate Iguana in Tucson, AZ are some of my favorite places for who I meet there.

7. A motto of mine is simply this: Do what works and do it over and over again. Also, avoid what doesn’t work and learn from your mistakes. If you master those rules, you will win at anything you do. I think Einstein said that it was insane to repeat the same thing over and over again even if you knew it didn’t work. (That is what I think when I see people smoking, only because you are paying to slowly die or at best have lung problems when you get older.)

8. I love old movies before they really got naked in movies and only things were implied.

9. I want a 50’s style coaster bike so I can go riding down by the beach. My Nanny had a great saying that has now become mine. “Use it or lose it!” She meant in regards to her legs that had arthritis in them, but she walked with me many miles at a time, and coughed from time to time with asthma. She was an awesome lady who helped raised me with an iron clad will. I thank her for imparting the courageous spirit she helped build in me.

10. I want to go to Rome Italy and Palermo one day, but I want to know conversational Italian before I do.

367 Dedicated Readers and Counting-Feeling So Appreciated & Rewarded

I want to begin the first sentence by saying I am so grateful for the hundreds of dedicated readers/followers who tune in to Totally Inspired Mind: Where Positive Minds Congregate each day.

I am so elated it has been so well received by the world since I created it a year ago.

Between 13 countries to 35 countries read, appreciate and are inspired by the posts I write, share, endorse and the photographs I shoot. I would have never believed when I was a small child I could “hold the whole world in my hand”, just as the folk song I used to sing with my mother Ramona.

With my MYTouch Android phone and the WordPress application, I can add new content any where be it a bus, store, park, or anywhere the inspiration hits me.

To give a person a new way of thinking is to give a person a new life. To show them how to rise above the misfortune they are going through is like showing them how to fly.

If you would like to get on my book list, so you are alerted when my books are finally finished and out for you to read, my email is TotallyInspiredPC@gmail.com.

Include your first and last name and say you want to be included for any news related to me, my career, book publications, press releases, ect.

I will not give your information to anyone because to me that is a capital sin. I will put you in my contact database and send an email when you can buy my books. I am working on two now.

Remember, everything that has ever been created in the world begins with an idea. From there it only takes action and persistence and patience to transform it into reality.

May only wonderful things and people come your way.

Photo Montage entitled “California Capers” by Paulette Le Pore Motzko

Beautiful sky image from TreasureField on Pinterest.com

It is when those things are taken away you realize how important they really were.

(Like appreciating the photos on my phone I can’t seem to locate. I need to buy a bigger memory card, but can’t until I get paid. I haven’t figured out why I cannot open my Gallery in my phone and access the nearly 2000 photos I took & saved!) I mention this because an image I created would have appeared here, but this one from TreasureField, found on Pinterest will work nicely. I always give credit, when known to the artists and photographer and writer if any material other than mine is used.) I will eventually access them again though. Hard to remember a time before Smart Phones and the internet.

Time has passed since this was posted this morning and in that time I restored all my applications on my MyTouch phone back to factory settings, freeing up enough memory so my Photo Gallery could be accessed again.
Hooray for small miracles!

When I was going to college years ago, back in 1984 to 1996 cell phones hadn’t even been invented and DOS was what you would find in the computer lab! To think I can walk around with the “world in the palm of my hand” and write things I feel are worthy to others every day with regular readers is incredible. I remember Mrs. RoseAnne Wood who taught all my Music Theory, Performance and Concert Review classes. After writing a concert review she would write on my typed paper: “You should be a writer. You have an extraoridinary way of putting into words the images music make you think of.”

Since that time, I taught piano 20 years, ages 6 years old to 86 and even two very acutely hard of hearing students who wore hearing aids-using American Sign Language which I am fluent in. That was so rewarding and it had never been done. I have often thought of signing up with a college in their Special Education Dept and offering music lessons to those with hearing impairments. It sounds funny to some, but to these students can sense pitch, tone and vibration. They just need someone who can translate audible to visual, which is me.

So, after talking of missing pictures, pianos, writing and making the impossible possible with music, I will say “take time for thankfulness. Make time to look around you and think not just about what you are doing in that day as a “proverbial to do list”, but meditate on the things you are grateful for. This does not include merely “stuff” or “things” but states of being.”

Goals you are achieving, from the simplest cup of coffee by yourself or with your loved one….or a place you go that is special to only you.

“It is in these times of reflection that great things are made.”

Thank you to author of the blog Lavender Reflections for inspiring in me the ability to write these words! I can’t wait to get to know you better.

“Know what time you are most inspired and are most productive. For me it is the early hours when it is quiet and I can hear my soul speak to me.”

Also, never quit learning and becoming and aspiring to great things. Allow your mind to go to the paragon of what you would like to achieve. Even if you fall slightly under that, you work will still be great. Filter out those who don’t believe in you and your abilities. They are like carrying around a ball and chain and are a deterant to your success as a human being and your happiness and peace.

Have a fantastic day!

I am so elated about the success of Totally Inspired Mind- Where Positive Minds Congregate. I created it about a year ago and it has been nominated for 3 awards…of which would be on my site here, if I could figure out how to post them! (I am in the middle of making a move out of the state and the time and calling it requires is unfathomable:)

The Liebster Award, Most Inventive New Blog, and Welcome to The Word Press Family Awards are what will appear when I find the html code for them to cut and paste them.

The readership has gone from 2 visitors a day to nearly 150 and between 5 countries to 25 different countries read what I write, depending on the subject matter. There is nothing more gratifying when you are a visionary like myself to see what you envision well received and become what you hoped it would be.

There is way more to keeping a blog going then I would have ever imagined.

Thanks again for giving me reasons to smile throughout my day. Your positive comments are fuel for my writing fire and make me realize, you the readers who find worth in my words, are why I write and why it is like a gift I am leaving the world with stories, posts and photographs from my heart and soul.

“Man’s real life is happy, chiefly because he is ever expecting that it soon will be so.” – Edgar Allan Poe

My mother Ramona use to tell me when I was a small child
“Whatever you believe you can do you will do. Envision yourself successful and you will be. Work as hard as you possibly can on every task you do, and you will be successful at it, whatever it may be.” Mom was right and I think of her many times every day as I am living proof that what she told me was fact. Shoot to be the top in everything you do, and try to be the best at it. Any job that is worth doing, is worth doing well.”

As Edgar Allen Poe said in his words about Man being happy largely due to him believing he will be, he was right.

Whether you are a man, woman or child, your attutude and the words you tell yourself outloud or subconsciously can bring you up so you reach the stars in the sky, or they can drop you in a depressing revene it will take some work & determination to get out of.

Choose your friends carefully and avoid negative, hurtful “family” members that only bring you down.

Remember this when evaluating who to keep in your life and who to avoid:

Family is who loves you, cares about your welfare, includes you, remembers you, worries about you and would miss you if you weren’t there.

I Am Part of the Word Press Family Award-nominated by

 Don Charisma

The Liebster Award

And Most Inventive Award on Word Press Awards

Since I created Cooking Up a Storm All Over The World over 3 years ago, I had hoped it would win an award of some kind, but it didn’t. I pay for the Pro Plan there at over $700 a year so all the things will work on it and I can designate titles to the various members on the site like Contributing Writer and Field Correspondents.

It is off the air until after October 2cnd, 2013 when I make Ning happy again and they get paid. I am an honest lady, but that is the only way I know how to be. Integrity is in my DNA.

I created Totally Inspired Mind on Word Press last year in the fall and I guess it is going on a year old, though it doesn’t feel like it. IT felt like a great release was let out like letting a bunch of doves out of a huge cage and letting them fly. (I was looking after my mother whose Alzheimer’s disease so severe she had to be put into a special care home where she had someone watching after her 24/7. That was something I could not do mentally or physically any longer and after I made up my mind to face what my abilities were I told the rest of my siblings I could not do it anymore.

I went to a hotel and did a lot of thinking as to where I was going to live and what I was going to.

People are quick to judge caregivers but until you live with someone who is diagnosed with the disease, you will never truly know how utterly demanding it is and how much patience it requires and time.

I will always love mom but I literally couldn’t do anything for ten minutes and think or have any type of concentration on anything. My health was suffering as a woman with epilepsy, and I knew I needed to put myself first for the first time in my life.

I think it is my most rewarding blog I do because I can write about things I feel strongly about, controversial things and things I think help people. At the times when I wondered if I would lose every reader I had, I instead gained more momentum and more members and followers!

It goes to show when you follow your passions and you do what you believe is right, not only for yourself but to help everybody, you cannot help but win in the end.

I hope I did this right.

I will add in the web site URL’s for each web site mentioned. I did not know how to find out how many followers/subscribers each site had. I just know I loved them and I chose to re-blog their material more than once.

Liebster Award Question and Answers

New blogs with less than 200 followers

Answer These and Come Up with 10 Questions for your nominees to answer

Questions Given to Paulette Motzko & Her Answers

 

1.  What inspires you blog posts?

 

What inspires my blog posts are feeling very strongly about what I am talking about. When I know I can speak out in front of thousands of people about what I am discussing or talking about, I know I have something great.

 

2.  What was your first blog post about? – I had no idea what a blog was literally, until I read my first Writer’s Market magazine at the Newport Beach Library in Corona Del Mar. I was immediately glued to the magazine and felt my world was expanding. I knew my world would never be the same again.

 

3.  Where do you feel the most at peace?- I feel most at peace in wide open spaces and beautiful places-by the beach, by the ocean near the desert overlooking cacti like what I remember when in Tucson as a kid, in resorts, doing work for big companies and creating photos, and carving my words like Michelangelo carved marble.

 

 

4.  If you had to choose one food/dish you could eat for the rest of your life what would it be and why?-

I would hope I didn’t have to eat one food for the rest of my life, but if I did, it would take a long time to get sick of stir fries and teriyaki chicken.

 

5.  What is your favorite travel destination?-Las Vegas, NV because there are international business people who love what I do in advertising, words and photography and it is always interesting. The shows, the big businesses, the excitement. I can have a lot of fun and I don’t gamble or drink! I want to go to Italy one day and see my many friends there and travel to the Positano region and Palermo because I have a good friend who lives there and also Rome-who owns a cooking school there, and of course the amazing art and history there and Italian food.

 

6.  Who inspires you?- My mother with her sweet disposition to life. My friend Nick and the many things he teaches me about history and politics. My guy friend Roland and his smile and blue eyes and the way he puts a lilt in my step.  Also, I get inspired to change the state of affairs I and other disabled people live in when I see them suffering and doing without and are put in danger with no place to live. If I run for office in CA I want to see that every disabled person has a nice place to live. The president has bought enough bombs to blow the world up 3 times over, it is about time he puts less money in the hands of the ultra-rich and puts it in the hands of those who make below poverty wage.

7.  Post a link to your favorite post that you’ve written and why.- That is a really hard question to answer. I will come back to it later.

8.  What do you love about blogging?- It is laborious and it is way more work than I ever anticipated going into it. The most extraordinary thing about it I can imagine something in my mind one minute, or get an idea for a story or an article, and I can make it reality with just a little TIME and EFFORT. It is very rewarding to see my work re-blogged and get fantastic feedback by people higher and higher on the food chain in the media, writers, photographers and big businesses.

 

9.  What other social media platforms do you use?- I am on Twitter as PollyMozko, Facebook as my full name: Paulette Le Pore Motzko, on Pinterest by Polly Motzko, Instagram as Polly Motzko, Linked in as my full name again.

 

I also have a few other sites called Photos That Inspire Words http://www.PhotosThatInspireWords.wordpress.com

Http://www.CookingUpaStormWithMissPolly.com

http://www.ChildrenAreOurFutureNow.wordpress.com

http://www.CookingUpaStorminCA.ning.com

 

 

 

10.             As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?- I wanted to be a truck driver of a big diesel truck and loved to play with Match Box cars, which I still have. Then when my Nanny came to live with us, (my dad’s mother), she brought with her a piano that would revolutionize my world. I knew when I played it at 9 years old my world would never be the same again. Music was my best friend and still is today, only I have expanded it to writing and photography as well.

Thank you again to those who nominated me for the Liebster Award, The Welcome to The Word Press Family Award and the Most Inventive Award.

I just discovered Iheart Radio on my Android MyTouch phone tonight as I am finishing writing this. My guy friend told me he listens to a radio on KFI 640 AM radio and I searched it on the Vocal Search and then downloaded the free application, and whala-my phone is playing Taylor Swift Love Story now on KOST 103.5 FM radio now.

I am going to post this on Totally Inspired Mind and I am sure that all those nominated will contact me because they are members on my site!

A Warm Hug and Thank You to My Devout 230 Intelligent Followers!

I wanted to take time to thank the many extraordinary and talented writers, photographers, and others who compose now 230 followers on Totally Inspired Mind-

where positive minds congregate.

I have more fun writing and contributing to this site, than maybe any other.

Even though Cooking Up a Storm All Over The World! is going strong now nearly 3 years, and costing a fortune on Ning.com to keep running-I still love it. I wish more people would put their recipes up on it, as I didn’t want to be the star of the show with it, but to let other amazing cooks show off theirs, as well as mine!

I wish I could hold some kind of public event where I could see and meet all those who write in an continually say they enjoyed what I write and share and capture with my Kodak or Nikon cameras.

Perhaps I will think of an event to create and then do just that.

Have any ideas for a great story?

I went for a job as the PR Director of Battres Construction yesterday. I met with the owner and I sent writing samples and photo samples from various client’s of mine. I don’t know yet but then great things do not happen over night either.

They found me on Twitter and liked what they saw and invited me into their show room.

Any thing is possible in this technological age.

God bless you all and if you don’t believe in God then just I wish you peace of body, mind and soul.

Rating The Posts on Totally Inspired Mind

Recently I updated the look of the site here on Totally Inspired Mind and also added the ability for my readers to rate the stories, photos, videos and the guest posts that I select for the site with a star rating. When I was a writer on Suite101.com on Epilepsy: Information & Insights this rating system was really great in knowing what kinds of things people loved the most and why. The most gratifying thing about creating something, be it a song that put a smile on someone’s face that hadn’t smiled in weeks, a recipe that was relished by those who ate it, or in a written work where you changed a mind, inspired or taught someone something new that enabled them to think in a new way; it is a fantastic feeling.

Anything extraordinary simply exists until it is appreciated by another.

I thank all the followers of Totally Inspired Mind for tuning in and making comments that I look at daily, and if you can rate the pieces, be it mine or other people’s, it is greatly appreciated by those who created it for you to enjoy.

Thank you for making me really glad I am a writer.

Once a writer writes something, the trick is getting it “out there” in the big blue expanse and hoping that people find merit in what you write about. That is what has happened with this site, one of the 5 I created and write one.

I had no idea what a blog was a few years back, but found a Writer’s Market book at the Newport Beach Library telling me how creating a blog would create readership, build a web platform, and I could tell the world about something that really mattered to me.

I then had the idea to create a member based cooking site that involved way more than cooking, and had features on it and would be a test run for the cook book that will eventually be in print. “Cooking Up a Storm All Over The World!” now has 206 members from all over the world, and has many people who are Contributing Writers on it. I can assign titles to anyone, allowing burgeoning writers to show case their work, which gives me joy. I never imaged it would have turned into something so extraordinary–but it did.

Now Totally Inspired Mind is becoming more popular every day, with 25-30 new followers a week, unheard of by comparison to my first cooking site! The comments I have gotten from people are all stellar, for the reasons I want them to be.

I have many SEO Marketers contacting me about the word choice I use. In regards to this, I did SEO Writing for a client of mine for a year and though I did it and got paid for it, I didn’t care for it at all. SEO rules goes against the DNA of every good writer and forces a person to be redundant, use simple language and it is not a natural way to write. I have recently invested in many hundreds of dollars in SEO/Marketing books that say the opposite about SEO.

I believe in simply writing great content and attract people to the sites I create by the sheer fact that is great. I have avoided gimmicks on purpose because I don’t want to bribe someone to “read my stuff!” I have plans to do Affiliate Marketing on the sites this years and Sponsorships to companies I fully endorse their products and methodologies.

What SEO writing does and SEO in general is it it forces traffic to your site, not because it is good content but because you are tricking the search engines to find it! I want to be found on the merits that I am a great writer and that I offer people something of value.

I am a genuine person and I want my philosophies and practices reflect that. I am not a hypocrite and the only people in my life are good people who care about the world, the environment, people around them, children and our future. if they are not that, I really don’t want to “hang around with them”. Who you don’t associate with is just as important as who you do, because negative people drag you down like a ball and chain wrapped around your ankle. I know, because I had some family members who whose actions were the polar opposite of that.

I got rid of bleeding ulcers by simply removing the cause of them, and I was related to 4 of them!

In the 50 comments I have replied to today, someone asked me if I had a Facebook Page for Totally Inspired Mind, and I told them no, but I will certainly go create one since I know there is a want and desire!

You see in life I listen to what people say, and if I feel there are enough people who would follow the page, I would create it. It wouldn’t take me very long in the grand scheme of things.

If any one has a story that you feel would fit nicely on Totally Inspired Mind and thing more positive minds would appreciate it, send it to me at:

TotallyInspiredPC@gmail.com

Thank you again for reading what I write, appreciating the photos that I take with all the love in the world.

Until next time,
