My grandson wanted a "Mad Scientist Birthday Party". These are 5 of my grandchildren plus a few friends getting ready for the party.
Mad Scientist Birthday Boy...and now he is six.
My daughter & son as the Head Mad Scientists...love my family.
As you might guess, I am a mime. I was a mime artist for over 30 years but in recent years slowed down due to an injury, and rediscovered another love: writing. Currently I'm writing a memoir... in 1976 "inter-racial" marriage was not popular. (it still isn't). Despite the dire warnings we are still married, in love and happy.
We have two children & eight grandchildren. So far everyone is an artist ...singers, actors, writers, dancers...(too early to tell with the youngest one)
I'm going to brag now: My son is a playwright and a Playwright Fellow at Julliard. My daughter has won literary awards and has been contacted by an established agent. I want to be around to see my children accept the Pulitzer.
My goal is mindful eating and exercise.
To feel strong and flexible.
Get 8 hours of sleep
I live in Rockford, IL.
I blog at a couple sites as "Mimetalker". You can google that name and find my blogs. They will tell you more than you want to know about me.
I am a long-time member of the Baha'i Faith, a Faith that promotes in thoughts, word and action the oneness of humanity. We believe there is One God Who created and loves us all.

"I believe in waking up every day and taking a good step toward health, and honoring your body." -Troian Bellisario
â€śIn terms of days and moments lived, youâ€™ll never again be as young as you are right now, so spend this day, the youth of your future, in a way that deflects regret. Invest in yourself. Have some fun. Do something important. Love somebody extra. In one sense, youâ€™re just a kid, but a kid with enough years on her to know that every day is priceless."
Just stopping by to encourage you to make the most of each day, my beautiful young Sparkfriend! Keep your goals in mind, and do something every day that will move you one step closer to attaining them. Don't ever forget that you are always worth your best effort!
Have a healthy week!

"I believe that we are who we choose to be.
Nobody's going to come and save you. You've got to save yourself.
Nobody's going to give you anything. You've got to go out and fight for it.
Nobody knows what you want except for you.
And nobody will be as sorry as you if you don't get it.
So don't give up on your dreams."
Just stopping by to encourage you to keep doing your best, Sparkfriend! You don't have to be perfect in order to make progress. Be your own hero today and every day, and keep fighting to reach your goals. It isn't easy, but you are worth the effort!

"Transformation is not five minutes from now; it's a present activity. In this moment you can make a different choice, and it's these small choices and successes that build up over time to help cultivate a healthy self-image and self esteem."
"Make a pledge to yourself right now, to declare that you are worth your time and energy."
Just stopping by to wish you a happy, healthy and fun Summer, Sparkfriend! Keep making those daily choices that will help you move closer to your goal, one step at a time. Right now there are just a little over 90 days until the first day of Autumn. Imagine how much progress you can make by then if you just keep doing your best each day this Summer! Don't forget....you are worth the effort!

"Every day of our lives we are faced with a choice.
The choice to BE, or to be truly AMAZING.
Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.
No matter who you are, or what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE."
Hey Sparkfriend, I hope your week is going great so far. Make the most of each day as it comes, and choose to be amazing! Put forth your best effort....because you are worth it!

"Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long.
Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals.
No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders.
How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come."
Just stopping by to wish you a healthy week, Spark friend! If you fall down, get back up and keep pushing forward. I hope you know that you're always worth your best effort...because you really are!
