Here is a nautical version of my popular wish bracelet, perfect for your beach parties, seaside weddings, and other special occasions! The wish bracelet is fabled to bring good luck. When you tie it on, make a wish. Keep wearing the bracelet, and when the bracelet wears off, your wish will come true! The origins of the Wish Bracelet have been attributed to ancient cultures across the globe. I first received one on a trip several years ago and my wish came true a few weeks later! I decided to start making them to spread the good luck! If you happen to be "tying the knot," what better way to wish your wedding guests peace, luck, and happiness than by giving them a sailor's knot wish bracelet as a wedding favor! The classic figure-8 knot represents the infinity of your love, and it's great for both men and women to wear. The Wish Bracelet also makes a lovely and meaningful gift for bridesmaids or close members of the wedding party. Imagine everyone tying on the bracelets the day of the wedding and wearing them as a symbol of unity and well wishes! The standard Wish Bracelet is handmade by me from eco-friendly, all-natural hemp cord and mounted on white cardstock printed with my Wish Bracelet verse.

A few days before their wedding, Alex Voutsinas and Donna Balzano of Boynton Beach, Florida, were looking through old photos to display at their reception. Donna found a Polaroid of her first visit to Walt Disney World, when she was five years old. Alex noticed a man in the background who looked awfully familiar--his own father, pushing a stroller. Who was in the stroller? Alex! It was the couples' first photo together, snapped 15 years before they even met.
At an airport I overheard a father and daughter in their last moments together. They had announced her plane’s departure and standing near the door, he said to his daughter, “I love you, I wish you enough.”She said, “Daddy, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Daddy.” They kissed good-bye and she left.He walked over toward the window where I was seated. Standing there I could see he wanted and needed to cry. I tried not to intrude on his privacy, but he welcomed me in by asking, “Did you ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be forever?” “Yes, I have,” I replied. Saying that brought back memories I had of expressing my love and appreciation for all my Dad had done for me. Recognizing that his days were limited, I took the time to tell him face to face how much he meant to me. So I knew what this man was experiencing. “Forgive me for asking, but why is this a forever good-bye?” I asked. “I am old and she lives much too far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is, her next trip back will be for my funeral, ” he said. “When you were saying good-bye I heard you say, ‘I wish you enough.’ May I ask what that means?” He began to smile. “That’s a wish that has been handed down from other generations. My parents used to say it to everyone.” He paused for a moment and looking up as if trying to remember it in detail, he smiled even more. “When we said ‘I wish you enough,’ we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with enough good things to sustain them,” he continued and then turning toward me he shared the following as if he were reciting it from memory. “I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright. I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more. I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive. I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger. I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting. I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess. I wish enough “Hello’s” to get you through the final “Good-bye.” He then began to sob and walked away. Author Unknown
The world's smallest dolphin - the Maui's - needs our help. A new study has just found that there are only 55 adult dolphins left, making it one of the most critically endangered marine species in the world. It lives exclusively off the coast of New Zealand, a nation which markets itself as "100% Pure" - and yet the government is dragging its feet in protecting the dolphin.

oa2: I was cross-legged and leaning against a bookshelf in Borders surrounded by my selection of books. I see his feet before I look up to see him smiling at me. He sits down, thumbs through his own books until he’s reaching for mine to tilt it out of my view and to his own. He read it, let out this little laugh, and shifted it back to me. 7 and a half years later we finally end much like we began. I hope you’re well in your world with out me.
"It well may be, That we will never meet again, In this lifetime. So let me say before we part, So much of me, Is made of what I learned from you. You'll be with me, Like a handprint on my heart. And now whatever way our stories end, I know you have re-written mine, By being my friend... Like a ship blown from its mooring, By a wind off the sea. Like a seed dropped by a skybird, In a distant wood. But because I knew you, I have been changed for good.” ― Stephen Schwartz
Fall in Love
Cracking Wing (Sutateish, also Cetaghe), Mandan youth. Cracking Wing arrived in Hampton on Oct. 25, 1881 and DIED there in 1884. When researching this photograph I nearly overlooked the fact that this young man died at Hampton Institute. When I realised that fact I had to get up and walk away from my computer, after 10 minutes of mixed emotions I went back to my computer and turned it off. I was very effected by this revelation. The photo I believe, was taken in 1881. A day later I'm still sad.
Listerine Foot Soak. Regardless of terrible reviews, this worked for me. Tried 3/10/14. Read a lot of comments and adjusted my soak accordingly. Used a clear variety of Listerine, so no blue feet. Used 1 cup Listerine, 1 cup Vinegar, and 2 cups water. Soaked for 30 mins and most of the yuk did rub off, but to get really deep, I used a pumice stone. As bad as my feet were (worse than photo!), they look pretty damn good now. Emollient cream and socks after; will def repeat before pedicure time.
Was not every child meant to feel innocence? Was not every child meant to feel the warmth and the beauty that I felt that day for a mere hour before we strategically plotted against the ones who were to lead us away from my innocence. If we all walk deeper into these woods together the fear may not take us all. It may only just take a few. But the few that it does take it will make us stronger. It will give me wrinkles....I never thought it was possible for such a young child to develop these crows feet. The ones taking away our innocence are giving the flawless white rabbits matted hair, but I will brush it and we will walk on. And when the few birds drop from the gun shots fired we will not cower with so much fear as we would if we were alone....no. we will just wipe the blood from their wings and shut their eyes. Use their blood to make our cheeks look like we have a bit of life left in us....and keep going. Stay right by me. Keep my shred of innocence okay, Fox? Okay he says. If they strike us give them no satisfaction is our agreement. And it's our agreement throughout our whole journey through the woods. As time has past and I realize death is upon us all and my innocence was never intended to be kept safe forever...I see a light shine through the dark woods and a shout of that beauty I spoke of so long ago...a man of fear behind me shot Fox in desperation....to prove his control of a situation never controlled. A girl never meant for innocence spat in his face, picked up her friends body, and ran towards freedom.
