HEALING PHOTO ART

Scientific studies indicate that art heals by changing a person’s physiology and attitude. Physiology changes from one of stress to one of deep relaxation. Perceptions of the world are immediately changed from darkness and despair to hope and jubilation.

The Foundation for Photo/Art in Hospitals is an organization founded by Elaine Poggi. I recently had the wonderful pleasure of meeting her via the Internet during my research of children’s hospitals to whom I was seeking to donate some of my nature art. I e-mailed her, and right away, she responded back. Well, to give you the short version, I am now one of the Foundation’s contributing photographers!!! 🙂 Below is a picture of my “Regal Camellia” which has been added to their website. This image is also available on various products in my VIDA, Fine Art America, Pixels, and Zazzle online stores.

Please visit the Foundation’s website to learn more about its founder Ms. Poggi and her extremely worthy cause. You can also show support for her organization through Amazon when you make purchases. If you buy items on amazon.com, please consider using smile.amazon.com/ch/76-0720368 which is the same as Amazon, except that it donates 0.5% of the price of your purchases to The Foundation for Photo/Art in Hospitals! Just click on the link and choose the Foundation. Then shop always from smile.amazon.com instead of amazon.com. The Foundation is receiving more than $200.00 a year from Amazon, and if more people do this, they will be able to fund a whole photo project in a hospital very soon. Please help spread the word about this among your friends and family.

As always, this is from my heart ❤ to yours ❤ !

THE WRITE TO FEEL

TWTF JOUR & BRACE 2.jpg

Diane Hoversen-Smith is the founder of The Write To Feel, a journal business. She designs journals for various journeys in life. She recently released her newest journal, “Thank You Wasn’t Enough–Loss Of A Parent.” My mother passed almost seven months ago, and I am still trying to heal from the pain of losing her. Last week, I received from one of my dearest friends this journal along with a beautiful, reversible, silver and gold, heart bracelet that is also available on Mrs. Smith’s site.

As a fiction inspirational author, I can say from personal experience that writing is extremely therapeutic. But oh, how much more so is it when one is writing down one’s own personal thoughts and feelings in their own private journal.

Please visit Mrs. Smith’s inspiring site to read about her own personal journey to healing and to see the lovely products she has to help you through your journey.

As always, this is from my heart ❤ to yours <3!
