Success for Sale!

Success for Sale!

Tough love.Image

“You want success. Are you willing to pay the price for it?

How much discouragement can you stand?

How much bruising can you take?

How long can you hold on in the face of obstacles?

Have you the grit to try to do what others failed to do? Daily and without complaining?

Have you the nerve to attempt things that the average woman or man would never dream of tackling?

Have you the persistence to keep on trying after repeated failures?


Can you cut out luxuries?

Can you do without things that others/peers consider necessities?

Can you go up against skepticism, ridicule and friendly advice to quit, without flinching?

Can you keep your mind steadily on the single object you are pursuing, resisting all temptations to divide your attention and time?

Are you strong on the finish as well as quick at the start?

Success is sold in the open market. You can buy it– any person can.

Are you willing to pay the price.” Yes. you are a winner.



“I HAD A DREAM!”I know you have heard this quote before, but this is my dream.

I did dream that evil was rising from the earth and raining down from the heavens. This evil was man. The politicians, business men, criminals, regular men and women were all attacking the rich, less fortunate and the weak.

I as myself with a special staff fought the evil without violence. Revealed my staff and taped the evil person upon the head and “POOF”.

All who were touched by my staff became infant babies. To relive their life for all they had acquired, known, achieved or hurt during their past lifetime was gone.

No memory of them on earth. The people they hurt or killed directly or indirectly, were alive and safe again.

To have never been born and to be born again.

A second chance at life.

The 35 Symptoms of Menopause


The 35 Symptoms of Menopause
This list of common symptoms that occur during perimenopause and menopause was developed from the real-life experiences of hundreds of women. All symptoms were experienced by numerous women and were either cyclical in nature, or responded to treatments (both traditional and alternative)known to address hormonal imbalances.

  1. Hot flashes, flushes, night sweats and/or cold flashes, clammy feeling (see note)
  2. Irregular heart beat
  3. Irritability
  4. Mood swings, sudden tears
  5. Trouble sleeping through the night (with or without night sweats)
  6. Irregular periods; shorter, lighter periods; heavier periods,flooding; phantom periods, shorter cycles, longer cycles
  7. Loss of libido (see note)
  8. Dry vagina (see note)
  9. Crashing fatigue
  10. Anxiety, feeling ill at ease
  11. Feelings of dread, apprehension, doom (see note)
  12. Difficulty concentrating, disorientation, mental confusion
  13. Disturbing memory lapses
  14. Incontinence, especially upon sneezing, laughing; urge incontinence (see note)
  15. Itchy, crawly skin (see note)
  16. Aching, sore joints, muscles and tendons (see note)

  34. Changes in fingernails: softer, crack or break easier
  35. Tinnitus: ringing in ears, bells, ‘whooshing,’ buzzing etc.(see note)


  • Symptom 1 (flashes) Hot flashes are due to the hypothalamic response to declining ovarian estrogen production. The declining estrogen state induces hypophysiotropic neurons in the arcuate nucleas of the hypothalamus to release gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) in a pulsatile fashion, which in turn stimulates release of luteinizing hormone (LH). Extremely high pulses of LH occur during the period of declining estrogen production. The LH has vasodilatory effects, which leads to flushing.
  • Symptom 7 (loss of libido) For some women the loss is so great that they actually find sex repulsive, in much the same way as they felt before puberty. What hormones give, loss of hormones can take away.
  • Symptom 8 (dry vagina) results in painful intercourse
  • Symptom 11 (doom thoughts) includes thoughts of death, picturing one’s own death
  • Symptom 14(incontinence) reflects a general loss of smooth muscle tone
  • Symptom 15 (itchy, crawly skin) feeling of ants crawling under the skin, not just dry itchy skin
  • Symptom 16 (aching sore joints) may include such problems as carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Symptom 22 (depression) different from other depression, the inability to cope is overwhelming. There is a feeling of loss of self. Hormone therapy ameliorates the depression dramatically.
  • Symptom 25 (weight gain) often around the waist and thighs, resulting in ‘the disappearing waistline’
  • Symptom 29 (shock sensation) “the feeling of a rubber band snapping in the layer of tissue between skin and muscle. It is a precursor to a hot flash”
  • Symptom 30 (tingling in extremities) can also be a symptom of B-12 deficiency, diabetes, alterations in the flexibility of blood vessels, or a depletion of potassium or calcium
  • Symptom 35* (tinnitus) one of those physical conditions that seems to manifest in some women at the same time as menopause. It can be associated with health conditions such as hypothyroidism and heart disease, and is a known side-effect of many medications, including aspirin (salicylates) and Prozac.

Mother(s) & Father(s) Love

Mother(s) love

Once there were two woman who never knew each other. 

One you do not remember and the other you call Mother. 

Two different lives shaped to make yours one. 

One became your guiding star the other became your sun. 

The first gave you life and the second taught you to live in it. 

The first gave you a need for love and the second was there to give it. 

One gave you a nationality and the other gave you a name. 

One gave you the seed of talent and the other gave you an aim. 

One gave you emotions and the other calmed your fears. 

One saw your first sweet smile and the other dried your tears. 

One gave you up it was all that she could do. 

The other prayed for a child and God led her straight to you. 

And now I ask the age old question…

Hereditary or Environment?? Which am I the product of?? … 

Answer: Neither darling neither…Just two kinds of love..

Sean A Smith-Artist Statement

Sean A Smith-Artist Statement

I first heard this quote from Edvard Munch, Norway’s most famous painter, known for his painting “Scream”, in 2009 when I was taking Painting I. I knew from that moment, that was how I wanted to create my art. Not from his style, but from the purpose behind it. I believe as an artist it is my purpose to cross over and communicate with the viewer, to engage them with my work.

My series MASQUE, is a culmination of everything I have learned with my art education as well as a reflection of what I have lived through. In Aesthetics it was brought to light that everyone of us is different now than we were from this morning due to circumstances that have affected the way we perceive the world. These are some images of a few of my pieces from that show. I created a lot of work, many of which were good, but did not make the cut for my final show. What made it into my show were the strongest pieces that came about when I had reached a level in which I was able to release my inhibitions and unthink.

Unthink-(v.) to let it happen, to go on gut instinct, to react to what your innermost soul tells you.
