E Komo Mai! Welcome to my blog.

I'm delighted that you dropped in! E Komo Mai: WELCOME! This blog is basically an online visual journal is modeled after a concept I learned of in psychology 101... waaaaaaay back in college. That concept was somewhere in the chapter on The Significance of Dreams, where it mentioned someone's theory on dreaming about a house usually means that the house represents you. So I have used my actual house (Mauna Lea Manor) to structure my blog. In different rooms you will find different aspects of my life; different interests I like to blog about. This is a way to bring a little organization into my life and thoughts for myself... (dreams are in The Bedroom, Family updates are in The Living room, etc.)
This also, I would imagine, make reading this blog more convenient for you as well. If you are a grandparent interested in seeing photos and hearing stories about my boys, but maybe not so interested in my bellydancing obsession: you can just read what goes on in The Playground. But if you are an Art Collector more interested in my latest work and information on collecting, but not especially interested in my personal life: you'd enjoy The Office. Mauna Lea Manor is sort of the foyer to all the other rooms. If you would like to tour my online portfolio, please visit: www.stephaniebolton.com.
I hope you enjoy your time here ;) & continue to stop by!

A Masterpiece - by Mary C. Crowley


Through the power of your creative imagination, you catch a vision... you dream a dream.
YOu visualize yourself as the person you want to be!
You see yourself as a triumphant personality, striding toward horizons of constructive accomplishment!
You see yourself as a master servant of the race, ministering to human needs and radiating happiness. You strive to make the ideal in your mind become a reality on the canvas of time.
You select and mix the positive colors of heart, mind, and spirit into qualities of good living:
patience
determination
endurance
self-discipline
work
love
faith
Each moment of time is a brush stroke on the painting of your unfolding life.
There are bold, sweeping strokes of dynamic purpose.
There are the lights and shadows that make life deep and strong.
There are the little touches that add the stamp of
CHARACTER and WORTH.
The "art of achievement" is the art of making life- your life- a MASTERPIECE.
-Mary C. Crowley
