Artist Cynthia Tom says:

“My paintings are a form of visual meditations for me and I hope they can do the same for you.

“Each piece is created intuitively. It begins with a spark of an idea and allowed to evolve in its own time, even the title comes to me when its ready. Every work of art has a story to tell.

“Created with intentions for healing, wonder and resilience, I hope to spark for your imagination for a life filled with confidence, calm, delight, and fortitude.”

Renowned artist/cultural curator Cynthia Tom says: “To imagine a place of your own, for a woman, is an act of rebellion. Whether its physical or a state of mind, this concept drives self-care and love. This exhibition, the culminating phase of a 6-month healing program, is Intended to inspire, excite and ignite. It combines visual storytelling with mixed media and found objects, and insists upon new ways to re-imagine your place in the world.”

I thank Elisa Sasa Southard for helping me craft my artist statement in April 2018 when we were in Paris, FRANCE.

Dear Readers

I wish you peace, vibrant health and happiness.

As a writing coach, I remind my dear clients to  showcase “tags” on their websites and media kits – tags are keywords and key phrases – author’s name, book titles, themes, messages, mission statements  (synonymous with their platforms) -  to help readers  find the authors and their books on cyberspace.

As a person who needs resources for myself and for loved ones, I type combinations of “tags” to find sites that would lead me to experts, services, information I need.

May you have the energy to conduct the research or have a loyal advocate to help you plow though resources.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Know what site you are looking at.  Is it a government website? Government sites are .gov (not .com, not .net)

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Are you a senior who wants to work from home?

 

I typed into search box these tags:  “job training for seniors to work at home”

This is not a .gov  however it is a reputable and wonderful resource for the San Francisco, California area.   https://www.selfhelpelderly.org/job-training-programs

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Are you disabled and want to work from home?

I typed into the search box these tags:  “government programs for disabled people to work from home”

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

A loved one suffers chronic dizziness.

She has MediCare.  Her doctors haven’t been helpful. Another dear friend told me that the HMO might pay for a “second opinion” and to look into UCSF and Stanford.

Loving family members and friends love helping each other …  especially when research and advocacy require team work.

I searched using these tags:
“UCSF dizziness”
Oh my goodness, here’s their page for “second opinion”


When I searched using

“Stanford dizziness” … 
search engine added the tag “clinic”

Oh my, look at these departments at Stanford for dizziness


I clicked on:

“For a very long time scientists thought the brain was an organ beyond treatment. If something went wrong or if one was born with a deficit, the conclusion was ‘tough luck.’ Not so anymore. There are revolutionary techniques that can alleviate anything from chronic pain to Parkinson’s disease or Down syndrome. Dr. Norman Doidge lays it out in his book The Brain’s Way of Healing: Remarkable Discoveries and Recoveries from the Frontiers of Neuroplasticity. He’ll discuss this, and more, with Steve Paikin. ”

Dr. Norman Doidge explains:

“The Brain is NOT like a fixed hard-wired machine. The Brain changes it’s wiring – the word that describes this property is neuroplasticity. The Brain’s structure and functions can be changed by our activities and by our mental experiences.”

“Using energy to facilitate neuroplasticity for healing.  The ancient word ‘hælan’ – to cure, to restore, to make whole again.”

Claudine's balcony garden, Paris

Dear Readers

I wish you a good day and night, always.

Thank you, Mr. Roald Dahl, for having written ESIO TROT (  esiotrot is “tortoise” spelled backward)

Thank you, screenwriters Richard Curtis and Paul Mayhew-Archer, for the movie ROALD DAHL’S ESIO TROT

When depression robs my creative energy to write, I look for “happy movies” to lift me which then inspires me to write about the themes in the movie which then leads me to resume working on my own projects.

Yesterday (June 3), the names (“tags”) of these two actors helped me find the movie ROALD DAHL’S ESIO TROT

Judi Dench (as Mrs. Silver) and Dustin Hoffman (as Mr. Hoppy) and James Corden (as Narrator)

Soundtrack includes Louis Armstrong’s singing “A Kiss To Build A Dream On” composed by Bert Kalmar, Harry Ruby and Oscar Hammerstein II.

https://genius.com/Louis-armstrong-a-kiss-to-build-a-dream-on-lyrics

 

This is a movie I want to watch again and again… it’s like re-living a joyful day.

In the movie… Narrator tells us:

“Mr. Hoppy, the hero of our story, lived in a nice flat in an apartment block in London. There are three things you should know about Mr. Hoppy.  He’s kind, he’s shy, and, most importantly, he’s not that guy in the hat.”

(Mr. Hoppy is the man holding the elevator door for  Mr. Mavrokoukoudopolous the old man with the hat and cane. By the way, since the setting is London. Elevator is called a “lift”)

At the fourth viewing of this movie … I see just how wonderfully the story is crafted.

At  two minutes into the movie – first foreshadowing of Mr. Hoppy’s door which is crucial for the “climax” scene.

He turns on his CD player – Louis Armstrong’s singing “A Kiss To Build A Dream On”

Mr. Hoppy reaches into his satchel and places into his fruit bowl – one apple, one orange, one banana.  He opens his refrigerator, we see one tomato.

Narrator tells us “It’s [This story is] going to be full of passion, surprises… as indeed is our Mr. Hoppy.”

As the volume of the musical instrumental increases, we see Mr. Hoppy affectionately tending to his balcony-garden; his irrigation system drips water onto the colorful plants.

Narrator says:

“The truth is, there were two loves in Mr. Hoppy’s life. One was his flowers. The other was his secret love that he kept all to himself. Like so many secrets, it was the most important thing of all about him. Because Mr. Hoppy was in love… with the girl downstairs.”

(“the girl” is the vibrant Mrs. Silver, a widow,, probably in her seventies. Mrs. Silver’s balcony is on the floor below Mr. Hoppy’s.  We hear her at around four minutes and thirty-three seconds into the movie when she says “Good morning, Mr. Hoppy.”  Then we see her.    Her main love is her tortoise named Alfie.)

By the end of the first five minutes, I am pulled into the story world.

By the end of the first seven minutes, I am completely hooked with these two characters.

At 13:36 when Mr. Hoppy has the courage to say something personal to Mrs. Silver, he can’t see from his balcony that Mrs. Silver (in her wide-brimmed straw hat) has just inserted earbuds and couldn’t possibly hear him.

At 28:57 we see the second foreshadowing with Mr. Hoppy’s door.

At 54:38 we see the third foreshadowing with that door.

LAUGHING LIFTS DEPRESSION

In the scene where Mr. Hoppy is approaching the lift in the lobby with THE gadget, Mrs. Silver (wearing happy colors) is coming out of the lift. She tells him that she’s going to a dance marathon to raise money for charity and that they need sponsors. Mr. Hoppy says he would like to be a sponsor, would donate a pound. When Mrs. Silver reminds him that this is for charity, he says:
“A pound a minute”

(I laughed out loud; laughing shifts energy, lifts depression. So does smiling for one’s self.  For me, laughing is a stronger elixir.)

I learned these British phrases:

“very good news”  -  In the lift (elevator), Mrs. Silver says:  “What a quiet lift. It’s very good news.”

She calls herself “a silly sausage”

“a good old knees-up” means “to dance”

The little boy’s mother says to her son: “I’m doing dinner.”

 

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

In the children’s book, Mrs. Silver never finds out about Mr. Hoppy’s using deception to win her affections; in the movie, her finding out that he used trickery serves as the climax of the story.

In the children’s book, there is no Mr. Pringle;  in the movie, this character serves as archetypes Herald and Trickster and is the person who creates complications for protagonist Mr. Hoppy.

    Dear Readers,

    Bonjour.

    The suffering in this world …  the enormities of disasters … what can I do to ease the pain?

    I have faith that if I share information relating to health which I’ve been fortunate to gain, surely the energy would help someone who would help someone else, on and on.

    I am staying at dear friends’ home, however, not near wonderful chiropractor Dr. Jae Reed, D.C. https://azureskychiro.com/ to get treatments – Neuro Integration System and Neuro Emotional Technique…

    Luckily, I found another wonderful chiropractor – Dr. Kerry Lilley, D.C.  https://chiropracticbenicia.com/

    baguette sandwich, quiche, greens - photo by Teresa Jade LeYung, Paris FRANCE 2024


    Why do I need a chiropractor?


    The apartment in Paris I was in from March 1 – 26 was beautifully furnished, however, the person (who lived in the apartment above the one I was in) did not honor “Apartment-Living Rules”.  She would come home at all hours… walk in clunky shoes (fast walking too), and, she probably had removed floor rugs. The vibrations rolling across parquet floor when the entire building is quiet = unhealthy energy over my head.

    Around 3:00am on March 4th,  my brain so tired from the disturbance… I thought taking a shower would do me good.

    I forgot that the high-wall bathtub … I would need to “ride side saddle” going in and coming out.

    I fell.. coming out of the tub.


    The height of the bathtub wall is 22 inches while the distance from my knee joint to my foot is about 16 inches.

    [ Thank you, Marisa, for having taught me how to fall safely (Aikido wisdom) https://lovemadeofheart.com/blog/mountain-turtle-marisa/ ]

    At the time, I thought only my right knee sustained minimal impact.  Wrong.

    During my last two weeks in City of Light… my wanting to join my friends, I used Le Métro (Paris subway) … oh the stairs and more stairs … I realized that the right side of my body had been injured.


    Last week, I learned from Dr. Lilley what the Psoas muscles are.

    Today (May 29), during treatment, I asked Dr. Lilley to examine my wrists. Why are they achy with heat?

    She said:
    “Your smart body knows what to do. The heat you’re feeling in your wrists is your body’s way to release the trauma. Drink water. When exhaling, release the out breath twice. Release the trauma. Increase vitamin C for the time being.”

    I thank Dr. Kerry Lilley https://chiropracticbenicia.com/, Dr. Jae Reed https://azureskychiro.com/, Stephanie Wilger, NC https://stephaniewilgernc.net/,

    Dr. Amy Grace Lam https://www.vibrationalenergywellness.com/, Marie-Christine Cornet https://www.mariechristinecornet.com/,

    Gilles Marin https://www.chineitsang.com/, and all the healers who have taught me how to listen to my Brain-Body communicate… how to continue fostering the Smart Body.

    I thank everyone who has encouraged me to seek help.

    I thank everyone who plays a role in helping me find ways to Wellness.

    “The Essential Role of the Psoas Muscle”

    By: Stephen Falatyn, MD, Orthopedic Surgeon

    https://www.spine-health.com/blog/essential-role-psoas-muscle

    * * * * *

    2024 July 6    https://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/body/psoas-muscle

    What does the psoas muscle do?

    Your psoas muscles link your spine to your lower body and connect muscles deeper inside your body to ones closer to the surface of your skin. They’re like a bridge in the center of your body that connects lots of parts and helps you perform motions that use your abdomen and legs at the same time.

    Your psoas muscles work with other muscles to stabilize your posture and move your hips and upper legs. Their functions include:

    • Holding your lower back still when you’re sitting down.
    • Pulling your abdomen up from a prone position (picture doing a sit-up).
    • Helping you flex and move your hips when you’re standing and lying down.
    • Lifting your upper legs (which lets you walk and climb stairs).
    • Stabilizing the top of your femur (thigh bone) when you move your hips.

    * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

    This month, the writer who is supplying inspiration is Mr. George Carlin.

    At 9:42 into the compilation of interviews … Mr Carlin says “Write everything down… Write write write your ideas. And classify them… to find them later.”
    About humanity… he said that if there were only ten people, dropped off onto this planet… the ten people would ask each other:
    “Is every body okay?” “Let’s get something to eat.”    “That’s what any society says, but we don’t.  Property rights over people’s rights.”
    The gift of nourishment – here’s Sabine’s jambalaya cooked with love, in Paris 2024; Marie-Christine also gifted beautiful home-cooking. So did Nan! So did Sasa!
    Nadia, Deborah, MaryT, Arlene, chere Claude, Françoise, Emmanuelle, Theresa and John, fashion designer JOCCELYN https://joccelyn.com/provided delicious treats! And, merci beaucoup to the dear hearts who gifted Euros for beautiful food! Everywhere I go, friends offer delicious nourishment.  I am grateful!

    Bonjour Everyone,

    I wish you peace and joy.

    So much sadness on this planet … a smile brings light to my heart … perhaps if we all smile with our hearts, this planet would smile back.

     

    These books written In English (by the way … Maria Kawah Leung’s illustrated children’s book is in English and Chinese) and these French films inspired courage while I was in France and departing France.

    – a story about how female youth and perceived physical beauty is a convenience in this particular society, and, the invention of a stretchy fabric for bathing suits which turns out to be invisible on photographs and live television. I wonder how many bathing suits will be in the garbage when women realize that while the fabric “shapes and contains” their body, photographs of their body fat and skin compressed and redistributed might be perceived as the opposite of beauty.  A fun and clever script.

    December 2, 9, 16, 23

    10:00am to 1:00pm

    “THE POETRY OF HEALING: THE BODY” – ONLINE class

    at San Francisco Creative Writing Institute

    https://sfwriting.institute/events/the-poetry-of-healing-the-body/

    cost:  $395.00
    In this 4-week workshop, Body Memoir-Healing with Poetry, we stand as flowers watered by healing words. Our bodies are a memoir to ourselves. We will write poems to our hearts, minds, bodies, and emotions. The most important person in this course is you. You will use words to create poetry that celebrates you.
    This class is open to all. You don’t need to have ever written a poem. This is an opportunity to explore yourself through words that you create. We will also read poems that you select that support your discovery of how exceptional and beautiful you are.
    The poems you create are meant to be a memoir about how you celebrate, explore, and support yourself.

    My 2018 artist statement for A PLACE OF HER OWN Exhibition which ran May 12 through June 24, 2018 at J-SEI in Emeryville, California.

    Teresa Jade LeYung

    Four smoothened wood boxes represent my dream home ? a place where I can balance the four areas of my life.  The green, blue, pink, gold (from paintings and mixed media art created by Cynthia Tom, Cris Matos, Chandra Garsson, Maria K.W. Leung) represent my affinity with Nature.

    I dream of four desks so that I would not have to constantly clear off table space to make room for one project while having to put away my other projects.

    All that I do and want to do are equally precious to me.  Just as there are four points on a compass, my four desks will allow me to go forward with my work with clarity.

    And, when I say work, I am talking about what makes me want to get up each morning with a smile on my face and a spring in my walk.  I think beauty. I become beauty.

    I transform “I was” to “I AM”

    I was a child witness to family violence.

    I was a frightened immigrant.

    I was an adult receiver of violence.

    I AM Teresa Jade LeYung who speaks openly through my writing and advocacy, my immigrant experience, and my knowing beauty.  As an author, a story consultant, and a found-object artist and student of A PLACE OF HER OWN™, I empower women to transform their own stories.  I think beauty. I AM beauty. Please visit me at http://lovemadeofheart.com/blog/

    Dear Readers,

    I wish you total wellness.

    Yesterday – after receiving treatment from Stephanie Wilger, NC and two days after receiving treatment from Dr. Jae Reed, DC (treatments that get to the source of illness) -  I refreshed the banner of my blog to read:

    “Story Consultant Teresa Jade LeYung’s Blog -  on Wellness, Themes, Archetypes”

    I celebrate the Wellness Journey!

    I celebrate dear friend / colleague Mary E. Knippel (“MEK”)!

    Yesterday, a blog post written by MEK touched me deeply.

    In Mary E. Knippel’s blog post of October 9, 2023 “An Unlikely Gift” Mary says: “… That’s how breast cancer is the gift that keeps on giving for me. I’ve learned to seize the day and reach for my dreams.”

    Author / Writing Mentor / Speaker / Wise Woman Mary E. Knippel says:

    “My clients come to me when they are overwhelmed about where to begin, what to say and how to make sense of the life-changing message they know they are here to deliver. I believe passionately everyone has a soul story of hope that the world needs to hear. I help my clients polish their words until their message sparkles and shines as a beacon of hope for those in search of a solution contained in my clients’ messages.”
    https://www.maryeknippel.com/

    When is Mary’s next Wise Woman Wisdom Retreat?  https://www.maryeknippel.com/retreat
