you and/or your loved ones (re)discover the positive force of coping creatively.



              Writing and Poetry:

          - Las Vegas, NV



          - Article:

              ”Contemporary Las Vegas Poets” (online classes)



          -   POP-UP POETRY at Nevada Humanities - Las Vegas, NV on Facebook




   Ava was a prolific writer of poetry, lyrics, journals and was published in her early twenties.

   She wrote about her darkest moments and deepest pains of lost loves and hope.

   She had no one to share these thoughts with, save her mother.

   Ava wrote this about herself on Facebook her last day:

   "Opera Singer, Amazon Warrior, blues singer, sassy hot fox, motorcyclist, activist for human &           animal rights – lover of all kinds of people, places and things. Love without fear of anything.             Love is the only way." 




     -  Dug the Dog from UP quote:

        “Hello, my name is Dug. I have just met you and I love you.”


     -  Marilyn Monroe quote:

        “I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times              hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve              me at my best.”


     -  Mario Savio quote:

        “There comes a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so              sick at heart, that you can’t take part, you can’t even passively take part, and you’ve got to                put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon all the apparatus, and you’ve got            to make it stop. And you’ve got to indicate to the people who run it, the people who own it,                that unless you’re free the machine will be prevented from working at all.”


     -  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., 1963 quote: 

        “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only              love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies            toughness in a descending spiral of destruction….The chain reaction of evil–hate begetting              hate, wars producing more wars–must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss            of annihilation.”


     -  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Quote:

        “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”


     -  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Quote:

        “Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious                        stupidity.”


     -  M. Scott Peck, MD quote:

        “We should judge others only with great care, and that such carefulness begins with self-                  judgment.”
