  • Where do I begin?

    MAMA MILA....If I started this with the words “where do I begin” how many of you would immediately think of the movie Love Story with Ryan O’Neal and Ali McGraw? For all of you that said yes, smiled or nodded..I now know who the baby boomers are..for those of you who didn’t and still don’t know..that movie will seem ancient if you do rent it but I highly suggest you do as it was a great one “back in the day”.  That movie came to mind as I sat down to write this although my “morphing” into where I am now is not based on romantic love but instead, it is how I feel when trying to share how I got to the place I am now..which is the happiest and most AUTHENTIC place for me..and a place that I LOVE! So I guess the best place to begin is by introducing myself..My name is Lisa Jadis, I am 54 years young..

     I was finishing my morning ritual, big cup of pipping hot coffee and the news, when the phone rang. It was one of my closets friends, Merrie. She called in quite a tither. As I sat sipping the last drops of my delicious cinnamon coffee, when the zinger hit. What I was about to hear was surreal.   After an explanation of why she was so mad and down right in utter shock were the words her boss had said after a sting of minor mistakes. Through the cell airwaves reverberated the quote, "I don't know what goes on in that little head of yours, but not much." I was speechless.  Call me crazy but doesn't that fall in the bully category?   As we have been witness to the suffering of children through bullying, it is never going to stop if adults, too, don't stop bullying adults. We have lived the tales of the playground.

    Please click continue reading below to see the beautiful portraits of : Jackie Lue Raia, spokesperson for NJ Sharing Network...  I have never been a long-term planner, I live my life month to month and I wish I could say I live my life day to day.  I am always striving to be living in the present. Death is a far away event for me, but is it really? No one wants to get up in the morning and think today is the day I am going to get hit by a truck. But that is exactly what happened to Jackie Lue Raia’s mother, the spokesperson for NJ Sharing Network.  Her Mom was killed in a car accident and Jackie was forced to make the excruciating decision to donate her organs.

  • Makers: Women Who Make America

    Please read the amazing article below from WAG MAGAZINE about our inspiring morphmom Nancy Armstrong of MAKERS....GIRL POWER...The shocking truth is that the story of the women’s movement had never been told before, at least not in a definitive documentary.So when Nancy Armstrong learned of this while attending a New York City fundraiser in 2010 for Dyllan McGee, a filmmaker who was trying to get a documentary about the women’s movement off the ground, her reaction was one of utter disbelief.“Are you kidding, this hasn’t been done?” she remembers thinking.It was then – after meeting Gloria Steinem and being galvanized by her words and by the excitement in a room full of women ready to move the project forward – that she took action, enlisting the help of AOL to get the film done.

  • Letters From Ladytown

    Once upon a time, we all lived in a world of handwritten letters: creamy stationery, crisp envelopes, vivid ink. We took the time to put our thoughts down on paper, and tell our story in longhand. We would mail these little pieces of our everyday lives, wait for them to arrive and then wait in anticipation for a response. Letters from Ladytown hopes to integrate the essence of this lost art with how we live now. Simple really, but powerful we think. So much can happen if we slow down, quiet the chatter in our heads and listen to that small still voice that never fails us. Here at Letters from Ladytown, we are committing to taking the time to do this four times a year: spring, summer, autumn, winter. We are – literally – writing letters to each other to document what surfaces during those moments of silent introspection.

    Have you ever wanted to apologize for something you did or said to another girl?Here's your chance....WHAT IS KIND CAMPAIGN?In February 2009, while attending Pepperdine University, two young girls recognized a problem and decided to do something about it. Lauren Parsekian and Molly Thompson, both affected by female bullying, decided to create a documentary and non-profit that would ultimately change the lives of hundreds of thousands of people across America.  The two girls packed their bags and traveled across America in a mini-van with their mothers to interview hundreds of females around the country. The journey is packed with hysterical moments as the four girls attempt to conquer the road and everything America has to offer.

  • Hear Grief Howl

    Hear Grief Howl        My husband Ed and I lost our two children, our girls, from two different kinds of cancer: Valerie at nine from bone cancer and Stacy at thirty-seven from breast cancer. When people discover that, a disturbed look clouds their eyes and pity thickens their voices. They look at me and wonder aloud, “How does one overcome such tragedy?” I don’t reply since I don’t know. I haven’t overcome anything.          What often follows conversations such as that are unsolicited proposals on how to get on with my life. To ‘overcome’.
