Born in New York in 1893 to a French father and a Polish mother, Florence’s mother died when the little girl was 2, and her father died when she was only 15. She went to live with acquaintances, first in Rome, then in Berlin, and in 1924, at age 31, she moved to Paris. Trained as a painter, by 1928 she had abandoned painting in favor of becoming a free-lance photographer. Many of her photographs incorporate…

Bullying is very damaging. This is a simple message but explains in no uncertain terms the lasting effects. It has to stop.

Anti-bullying awareness Anti-bullying awareness

October is anti-bullying month. The fact we even need to set aside time to raise awareness for this saddens me and this is a topic I could ramble on about for hours, but sometimes simplicity is best. In light of this, all I am going to say is that while bullying may seem to some people like a meaningless or even fun moment of frivolity, the mental scars you give others will never leave them. Never.

Happiness is a wonderful gift; please don’t ever be the one responsible for taking it away from someone else.

Before I sign off for the day, I think you are all entitled for an explanation why I intentionally posted only videos today. It’s rather simple actually: my mind was out there somewhere, obviously far away from writing. 😀

I will leave you with a famous short story, the narrative expertly sung.

Be well!

Goodnight guys and gals! 🙂

Here is a last-minute plug for my favourite Christmas design, one that I created this time last year when I was laid up in bed waiting for that dratted hip replacement operation and needed a laugh.  Here it is on a coffee mug.  The mug is a little too big for a stocking filler but makes a good present for someone in your circle.  Mind you, you could always try using a very, very big sock and stuff the mug into the toe!  Then again…

You may have wondered why I have been absent from this blog since Christmas.  Well, I broke my hip at the beginning of the year and had a femur replacement operation.   This was followed by its dislocation and a further operation to put it back into place.  Then I fell over three times, the third time damaging the other leg but not, I hasten to add, breaking anything!

All this has left me with very little energy and sustained concentration, and since the anaesthetic from the first operation had an adverse effect on the old synapses of the brain, I could not read or write properly for the first two or three months.  I’m still not back to normal and only now able to walk without a Zimmer frame and only very slowly.  Oh, it’s an interesting life!

Let’s hope I am able to give you a proper post sooner rather than later.

In the meantime, take care and keep laughing.

Sarah
