a collection of poetry past, present, and
Readers will be taken on an in-depth journey of the trials and
tribulations one faces growing up and merely experiencing life. Whether you've
ever experienced a minor challenge or have had to overcome major obstacles, you
will quickly find yourself relating to the words from Moy's pen.
Embrace your most inner self and explore the caverns of who
you were, who you are, and who you might become as you digest Moy's words and
use them as a vehicle of exploration. Unlike her first book, these poems were
written over a period of over fifteen years, from a woman in her teens to one
in her thirties.
About the Author
Writing has always been a passion for Melissa Moy, something
that she will never be able to give up or turn her back on…it is…who she is.
From the very start of her educational experiences, Moy gravitated toward
written expression. When asked when or how she first learned to write she
simply replied, “There was never a ‘how’, only a ‘had to.’ I just had to write,
and so I did.” Moy’s writing dips into a plethora of forms and topics, but
poetry has always been most near and dear to her heart.
This book brings to life one man's quest to fulfill his eternal love for the Arabian horse. Keeping that dream alive through heartbreak, triumph, defeat and perseverance; his dream is fulfilled creating a forever bond that will live throughout the eternities. A must-read book based on true life events giving all an understanding of the passion and kindred connections between horse, man and the creator. It provides an easy to understand and proper way to approach the horse to develop a long lasting partnership. This work is the next best thing for all horse enthusiasts, especially the ones who want to improve their abilities to truly and deeply connect with any horse on an entirely spiritual level.

Last Sunday night, I started to sneeze. Monday morning, I was
a mess. Tuesday, I was at the doc, then to the hospital for a flu swab. Ugh. When
I woke this morning, it was Friday; not sure how I lost several days, but there
it is, and that’s what the flu does to a body. Now, I am thankful to be on the
mend, but still wary of going outside (even though I miss my horses and cats
and know they are trying to figure out where I am – thank goodness for a family
member who loves my animals, too).
Today, not able to leave the house, but able to do something – I decided to watch Netflix.
I love the documentaries: Dior, Vogue,
Manolo, Mumbai Railway, etc. Then I came across Finding
Vivian Maier by John Maloof. Wow. I was mesmerized by the life of Vivian,
her humbleness, prolific photography, and life.
Vivian was born in New York, USA. She was a nanny and
photographer. She was a spinster and loner; however, she liked people,
landscapes, and the world in general. Her passion was photography and I wonder
what she would have to say about her work being found. I’m sure she would smile
at John Maloof and thank him for his diligence.
Thanks, John Maloof, for resurrecting a fascinating life. I
loved seeing Vivian’s photos and hearing the tale of how her work came back to
life. I hope to see the exhibit someday. Possibly, you would consider sharing
the exhibit with Ohio University’s
Kennedy Museum of Art.
Most of all, Finding
Vivian Maier is affirmation to follow your passion, no matter what it is. As
my neighbor always says, you can’t hide
your light under a bushel. Maybe someday someone will find your boxes (or
flash drive) of passion and exhibit it in a gallery for the world to see, and
they will fall in love with your work, too.

nicker, followed by a certain familiar rhythm… a deja vu from your mother’s
womb. It has always been there, it’s the rhythm of your life, the rhythm which
takes you to your past and then throws you into the future… it’s when you
discover yourself, without rhythm you’re nothing but an empty body. If you want

dancing at his birthday party in a Waikiki, Hawaii - note sign in upper left
corner area, in the early 80's was featured on national TV (Real People, NBC)
as the "Disco Doc" for interior designing his dental office waiting
room as a discotheque - helped the night hours of operation.
"Where are we going today?" would be the first words
she would say to his wife when she woke up. His wife would work in the evenings
and take care of their daughter during the day. That meant she had to be the
event organizer because everyday was an event with their 3 year old daughter.
She took her to "play bloop" which is how she said "play
group." She took her to "imaginationation nation" which is how
her daughter called the local child science center. (It's simply "Imagine
Nation"). She took her to the library. She took her to the playground. She
took her everywhere! Then there was the homemade meals and the reading of
books. She did a lot. She was a Super Mom!
A Super Mom would make a cute comic strip. Instead of fighting
evil villains, though, it would highlight her personal story with her daughter.
It would celebrate it so she could look back on those years and recall and
smile. At least, that's what Jason Nocera thought. It helped that he's also a
full-time cartoonist and can see the "funny" in everyday life. He
drew up the personal comic and presented it as a card for his wife on Mother's
Day. That's when the idea clicked that everyone has memorable events and
situations that can be captured in a comic page. There are a ton of Super Moms
and Super Dads! He now works as a cartoonist where he captures other couple's
memorable events, emotions and lives in colorful, custom comic strips and full
comic pages. He works one-on-one with each person to create a truly unique
Father's Day is a great time to show your spouse that he is a
special dad! A custom comic page can highlight the time he spends with his
child or children, how he provides for the family, his special interests and
his passionate hobbies. Is there a favorite sports team they cheer on together?
A favorite book they read together? Something he can't wait to teach his child?
Or perhaps your spouse views himself as a hero! Imagine a
story featuring your husband saving you and your child. Again, personal details
can be included to make it something personal. Perhaps he plays tennis and now
his "super powered" tennis balls and racquet is how he defeats a
villain. The possibilities are endless.
As a professional cartoonist, Jason Nocera only needs the
details and he will turn it into a personal comic strip or page. It's a gift
that will be cherished for a lifetime. Hand-drawn and signed original artwork
included! It typically takes 3-4 weeks for completion. Framing is also
available for those residing in the US. Right now, he is having an early-bird,
