HENRY COUNTY, Ga. — A family that faced eviction upon returning from a Make-A-Wish event has new hope for a stable home.  Xernna Nieves said her family arrived home at their Stockbridge apartment to find an eviction notice. 

The family lives in the Ashley Woods Apartments. Nieves’ 16-year-old son has severe aplastic anemia and has already had two bone marrow transplants.  At the time, Nieves said she could not put into words what it would mean if she and her family of five were evicted.  “I have no place to go. I really have no place to go,” she told Channel 2’s Jade Hernandez Monday evening.

Screen Shot 2014-04-23 at 3.46.41 PMNieves admitted she has had trouble paying rent and hasn’t been paying on time, but the apartment complex has always worked with her and in turn, she always pays rent.  The Make-A-Wish Foundation paid for her son, John Williams, to fly…

The True Value of Philosophy in Life…


Originally posted on JamesRadcliffe.com:

For a lot of people, ‘Philosophy’ is a dirty word; conjuring feelings of boredom, images of dry dusty books, and memories of long forgotten classrooms.  It is a term that a lot of people file in the: ‘not useful’ and/or ‘not interesting’ section of their minds.

This is potentially, one of the gravest, and most dangerous of errors…

Why on earth would I say this?  And how could knowing anything about philosophy improve, not only your life, but also your experience of it?

These are some Good Questions.  To answer them, let me talk to you about…

Your soul lives in quiet stillness
With magical powers unknown
Silence your mind and dive within
You’ll be amazed at what overflows

Visions, words and sounds
Play in your consciousness
Ideas and thoughts abound
At the center of your lotus

The creative point of being
The beginning of every art
Close your eyes in silence
Let the beauty pour out

Master a piece in peace
Bend waves to water energy
Picture the puzzle in pieces
Merging in high frequency

Turn lead into gold
Alchemy of the soul
Possibilities are infinite
When you just let things flow

Your soul travels in quiet brilliance
With supernatural loud silence
Free the heart, show effervescence
For all the gifts, heaven sent

Community of BLoggers Award



CommunityofBLoggerz

~~April 10, 2014~~

My dear Dr. Rex returned this lovely award to me.   She has been my friend for some time now, and is one of the reasons why

I feel like I truly am part of a Community!

Her take on this award is something I agree with wholeheartedly, and I’d like to share it with you:

“Much is frequently said about “community“. I see ourselves as a group of people who have similar ideas, concepts, interests and values. Another quality that we have in common is that we had a basic need to share what we have to offer each in a very individualized and different way.

This is our blogging community. “

It is important for creative people to have many communities where they can interact with other creative people, and where love and support are shared like they are in a family.

I think that the concept of community as family is extremely important because, for many artistic or creative people, acceptance by their biological families and many friends may not be forthcoming, because these people think “out of the box” ; their priorities are different, often not as materialistic as the people around them.  It is wonderful to have a community such as this where you can say what you feel, and know that it will be accepted without judgment, and where our innovative ideas won’t leave people gasping in shock.

Following on from my recent articles in regards to the current danger facing the Great Barrier Reef I would like to take a little step further South, all the way to Tasmania if you will join me.  Here too our government is trying to have the World Heritage Listing for the Tasmanian Old Growth Forests revoked to allow logging and fire bombing in the same manner that they are trying to do to allow dredging and dumping in the reef.

I suppose the Reef has held my attention simply because it is where I live, it is right beside me every day and while I have been working on other articles and with other groups regarding logging, wood chipping and Fracking I have devoted the majority of my ire against the powers that be in terms of  danger to the Reef which I can now see is a little shortsighted…
