IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

Paris terror attack

Husband pays touching tribute to ‘love of his life’ in defiant message to attackers

The husband of a woman killed in the Paris attacks has written a touching message to the “love of my life” and promised to raise their 17-month-old son “happy and free ”.

Antoine Leiris, whose wife Helene Muyal-Leiris was among the 89 killed in the Bataclan concert hall attack on Friday evening, posted an emotional message on Facebook.

Mr Leiris, who first met his 35-year-old wife 12 years ago, told the attackers he would “not grant you the gift of my hatred.”

In a post – shared more than 60,000 times by Tuesday morning – Mr. Leiris said in French he would raise their son Melvil “happy and free” and that responding to “hatred with anger is falling victim to the same ignorance that has made you what you are.”

To start the day … Happy Birthday!!


~~February 9, 2015~~

Happy birthday to my love, a sea around my heart: part shelter, part enduring word, part mirror of my art.
You are the calm that drains my rage, bliss upon my shores, immensity immutable, rush that life restores.
To you, I wish to be a welcome harbor for your ocean, destiny and origin, aim of your affection, yearning of your motion.

“Happy birthday” means much more than have a happy day.
Within these words lie lots of things I never get to say.
It means I love you first of all, then thanks for all you do.
It means you mean a lot to me, and that I’m proud of you.
But most of all, I guess it means that I am thinking of you on this very special day.
Happy birthday!


To my soul mate, the love of my life, my partner in all and now my spouse


~Happy birthday awesomest song ever~

To start the day ….. “Reminiscing”!!


~~February 1, 2015~~

I’m feeling sentimental and emotional this morning.

I spent time with family this weekend and stories that some didn’t know were shared. It’s a wonderful feeling to feel liberated from long-held secrets because of fear of rejection. 

Some may find this baffling because I have been very open here, in my “spot” about the recent ruling in Florida, where I live, about marriage equality. I have been proud to announce that I married my soul mate, my best friend and the love of my life on January 6, 2015. Something that we thought we’d never seen in our lifetime.

We have been “traveling together”, connected somehow since 1969 when we met. We stayed in touch when life got in the way. Reconnected since 1996 and together since.

So, if you don’t mind, bear with me a little and share a video, made by a wonderful friend, with you that shows some details of our story.


A fairy tale is a type of short story that typically features folkloric fantasy characters, such as dwarves, elves, fairies, giants, gnomes, goblins, mermaids, trolls, or witches, and usually magic or enchantments.

The term is also used to describe something blessed with unusual happiness, as in “fairy tale ending” (a happy ending) or “fairy tale romance”.

“As it appears in … “

I feel so blessed that life has been so good to me in spite of the ups and downs. This is it.

I’m staying here until my time on this earth is done.

To start the day …. A dream thought unattainable will become reality today!!

~~January 6, 2015~~ 

A very special Three Kings Day … a wish come true! We will be legally married today. What a gift!!

All my life I’ve known that I was different. At the time, I didn’t have a name for it. Now I do.

The name doesn’t make me. It doesn’t define me. It’s part of me … like being left-handed, like having brown eyes, like being a retired doctor. This is a day that I always looked at … way far in the future. This is a day that I didn’t think I would see in my lifetime. This is really happening today. 

I’m marrying the love of my life!

Being someone’s first love and being their last love too, after life happened, is sublime


~From a friend~

“When love has conquered all and has been lived for as long as yours, it only becomes a piece of paper that others will need to recognize and respect. The real value is what you have made of that relationship throughout the years. May you enjoy that happiness for many more.”
