The Final Breath of the World’s Greatest Free Diver, Natalia Molchanova
I remember once telling a writer all sorts of things about a story of mine he had just finished reading. His reply? “So what?” With that in mind…
Face: Ink and acrylic on board. About the size of an index card, mounted as the top of a box.
The Final Breath of the World’s Greatest Free Diver, Natalia Molchanova. Yes, she really was, and yes, unfortunately, she really did. Acrylic on canvas. Footnote: I tried to take this painting to the next level after photographing it. Ironically, perhaps, the painting did not survive.
While living in China, an American English teacher sets out to meet and interview interesting people in real life situations. He gets far more than he bargained for when he meets a free-spirited Chinese woman who is determined to get what she wants – at any cost.
When the two fall in love and begin to travel, often without the blessings of their work unit’s authorities, the American’s life is turned upside down, and he begins to feel the powerful weight of China’s Iron Bowl.
Love In An Iron Bowl is a true story inspired by actual events.
My Amazing Baby Celebration started as a labor of love – with a birth announcement card to announce the arrival of our new baby girl. Two years later we opened our free card shop to share the more than twenty-five cards we had created to celebrate our daughter’s life.
And then we started thinking. Was there anything else we could do to help new parents celebrate their babies’ development?
First, we created an Evaluation Chart that helps you determine exactly what your baby is ready to learn, exactly when your baby is ready to learn it (based on established pediatric guidelines).
Second, we developed Activity Pages that give you fun ways to participate in your baby’s development (activities that promote Large Motor Skill Development, Fine Motor Skill Development, Language, Vision, Emotion).
Finally, we created Quick Capture Pages that help you describe your baby’s monthly developments in fun and interesting ways – in a record that will last forever.
And then we had an idea…
Let’s put everything in a book!
And let’s give away our entire collection of card templates and card making tips to anyone who buys the book.
So here it is, My Amazing Baby Celebration, a complete collection of resources for helping your baby develop, and for sharing the amazing story of that development with your family and friends.
Wonderful, beautiful, always liberating technology. Or maybe not. Set in California’s Silicon Valley, OHM follows the lives of famous inventors, powerful entrepreneurs, and three ordinary people as they search for meaning in a world of runaway technology and reckless ambition. OHM will have you asking one question over and over again. Did this really happen?
Did a Silicon Valley entrepreneur really drive his new car off the edge of a mountain the same day his company went public and made him rich?
Did a line worker actually get away with shoving hundreds of valuable computer chips into a laundry bag, then dipping a motorcycle engine into a vat of gold?
Did a Silicon Valley executive with a rare blood disease really wear an IV drip into a manufacturing area just because he feared losing his share of the profit when his company went public?
And just when you think you have it figured out – the difference between the real and the imagined – you will peek around that corner we call tomorrow and ask – Will this happen too?
