Did you say New Zealand??!!

I am not a player, but I found this pretty fun, and I am sure all my artist friends would love this.

Remember my friend photographer Garry Heller?

He has been selected by Kim Crawford Wines Artists Lounge to be an artist in residence,( yes, they have an artist community, and do promote artists), and create an original work of art.

The cool thing is that if you join the community, and submit ideas that can inspire the artists in residence, you will be able to win a trip for two to New Zealand. Can you imagine? New Zealand!!!! This summer, this was one of the destinations I had choosen for vacation, but I quickly forgot about the project when I saw the price of the tickets :-)))!

But most of all, this is the opportunity to be part of an art project, and an artist community!

Fight Women!...For your rights!

I want to talk today about a subject that touched me very much: Discrimination.It touched me not only because I am black, but because I am a woman.

I think that many women will recognize themselves in this story. A story of a woman very close to me, about something that happened to her recently.

She works in a service with another woman and a man. Lately, she had to stop working to take care of her son that was ill and suspected to have swine flu. Fortunately that wasn't the case, it was just common flu. Her female co-worker is actually pregnant, and has been hospitalized for complications.Both three have the same job level, but my friend has been working there for a longer time and has the most experience in the office.
When she recently returned to work, her boss told her that they had decided that her male colleague will have a promotion and will in fact become her superior.

Of course she feels sad upset and humiliated!
We could say that this is just a coincidence, but I believe that it is not. She told me that at the beginning, when they had staff meetings,their boss only addressed her male coworker as if he was the only person in the room.
So many woman have to live this kind of humiliation, yet they continue silently everyday, simply because they make the choice to have children and do what they can to survive.I am sorry for my male readers, and I hope you will understand what I am saying, because we women need your support for this fight.
Women do not make children alone, and women need to be recognized in their work place!

Women need to know that with the same qualifications, they can expect the same job level of compensation, recognition and respect, as their male colleagues.
Women need to know that with same job level as a man they can expect a same salary. So my sisters, please continue fighting for your rights and do not let anybody tell you what you can expect from life!

Completing a project

I have been working on my new website project for almost one year now, and I hoped to launch it for the 1st of October,…..but nothing is ready!
It seems like there is always something missing!!!! This is so frustrating. I think I would have needed a coach this time:-))!
It is sometimes so discouraging! And all the questions that comes along: Is this worth it? Why am I doing this? Etc…

I really don’t know if it is worth it in terms of business, but in terms of personal achievement, OHHH YES IT DOES!!!! And luckily, I can sometimes remember why I am doing this….
I do it because I love it!
So, I will continue working on it until it is ready!
