Every time a bead is given courage is honored, suffering is alleviated, resilience is strengthened, and the experience of human caring is affirmed.

I've donated my handmade glass beads to this program. 


Beads of Courage, Inc. is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to improving the quality of life for children and teens coping with serious illness, their families, and the clinicians who care for them through our Arts-in-Medicine Programs.

Since 2005, Beads of Courage, Inc. has established collaborative partnerships in caring with hundreds hospitals nationally and internationally, and worked with several community organizations to make healing happen through the use of beads as a historical art form.

Here is a link to the Beads of Courage Blog

Every Beads of Courage® program integrates the use of beads, the earliest art form known to humans, as visible, tangible symbols of human experiences that need and deserve to be expressed.

My Biscotti Obsession.

When it's snowing outside, I like to bake Biscotti.

The word biscotti is derived from the Latin biscoctus, meaning twice baked or cooked. I have several good recipes and my favorite is with Anise flavoring.

Cosmos blowing in the wind.

 They sway back and forth with grace and dignity. I admire this flower in my garden when I need support.

Democracy has prevailed.

“Without unity, there is no peace, only bitterness and fury... no progress, only exhausting outrage.” 

This quote was meant to address one nation but it very much goes for the entire human civilization! It may sound naive, but it’s true! Simple as that.
