Today I learned how to identify a hazardous tree situation and how to estimate the falling distance of a tree.  Also I learned that severe wind and saturated soil can fell a tree, even a healthy one.  I see a metaphor—sometimes under a combination of circumstances, anyone can get mental illness (falling of the mind).

I thought about what Glenn Close said in the commercial with her sister that was filmed at Grand Central Station in New York City. “1 in 6 adults suffer from a diagnosable mental illness.” 1 in 6 adults and almost 1 in 10 children suffer from a diagnosable mental illness.

As an author and a community spirit, I, Teresa LeYung Ryan, use my novel Love Made of Heart to shed light on stigmas suffered by women, men and children with mental illness/traumas to the mind. I speak out for those who cannot speak for themselves.

  • With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help stop content from being stolen? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    Hello, Steven,
    This is what I’d do if I see my intellectual property on someone else’s site and they haven’t provided the link to my site–I would submit a comment to let their audience know that I am the owner of the content and invite them to visit my site; also I would contact the administrator of that site and make my request(s). IF I don’t want any portion of my property (not even my link) on their site, I would not submit a comment, but I would contact the administrator of that site and make my request(s). If I don’t reach satisfaction, then I would contact my literary attorney. In general I do appreciate other folks quoting me and giving out my URL when they are publishing abstracts of my work.
