Written In Red Yester-me Yester-you Yester-day by Ann Sullivan We spend vacation time in Galveston twice a year. In July 2017 we met with a very big surprise. While the sunset cruise tour boat was coasting down Galveston Bay on its way to the Bolivar Pennisula Lighthouse for sunset pictures, I saw a Coast Guard boat carrying what looked like a space capsule. I yelled "Oh Wow!" and the guy piloting the tour boat looked where I was pointing and exclaimed "Oh My God! I've never seen that before!" Several people started taking pictures with their cell phones. But with my fast speed camera I got a lot of pictures. I took pictures from the beginning until we passed the CG boat and and it passed us. After uploading the photos, I discovered the US Flag and the word Orion with the Orion constellation on the capsule. A search revealed it was the Orion space capsule. Later I learned NASA was testing the capsule in the Gulf of Mexico. They wanted to find out how quickly and safely the astronauts can escape from the capsule. What a shot! A once in lifetime shot for me. This link opens a pdf document I wrote about it along with a small picture of the space capsule on the CG boat. The links in the document are active when opened online. A photographer from the Daily News in Galveston had the privilege of taking pictures of the actual egress in the Gulf of Mexico. That's linked after my article. There is another link on my websites of interest. Orion Space Capsule Pictures of the Actual Egress This is a small picture of the Orion Space Capsule. The photo is not cropped. It is just a small print of it. The original file will print as large as about sixty inches. I was using a Nikon D-3300 DSLR camera with a Sandisk Ultra Plus class 10 memory card. I will come back and add what lens I was using. PHOTOGRAPHY SECTION Eastman Museum-History of Photography My photos are on Fine Art America where you may purchase them as photo prints, prints on canvas, totes, throw pillows, blankets, duvets, shower curtains, cell phone covers, tapestries, and more. I have added prayers and poems to some of my photos. My collection of photos and poems span many years. Writing goes back to my childhood. My serious photography began while working for a newspaper in college. When digital came along and triathlons wow, the passions grew stronger. Action shots at triathlons and time trials, I was really hooked. I took photos at triathlons and time trals, not just of my husband but of the events. We toured wherever we were. Triathlons took us across the USA and to London. We also took vacations across the mainland and to Hawaii. While in London we took a trip to Paris. Some of my photos were taken while my husband was driving from sixty to seventy miles an hour. I kid you not. I aim ahead and let the van do the zooming. Our backyard presents us with a lot of visitors for which I wrote a photo book about. Many of my sunset photos were taken right from our front yard. The first link takes you directly to my section in Fine Art America. My Artwork and Photography for Sale This next link takes you to the home page of the Prayer, Praise, and Worship group in Fine Art America where some of my artwork is being showcased.

I might be able to upload some of my photos with poems on them to Fine Art America. The end price includes my minimum markup. These would make fantastic presents though not in time for Christmas. A sample of my sunset photos Only God Can Create A Sunset While in Hawaii in 2007 my husband decided to swim at the Bonsai Pipeline even though there were no local people in the water. I wrote a poem to go along with the photo of just the tree. Bonsai Pipeline-Looking Up PASS IT FORWARD AND PRAYERS The next links are Christmas and New Yeaar Bookmarkers I created. The first one has a photo of Mary and baby Jesus. It was taken at the Oratory of St. Phillip of Neri - Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in London, England in 2013. The second one is the same bookmarker but the photo is of a manger scene. This photo was taken at Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church in Jacksonville, Texas in 2015. The fireworks on the New Year bookmarkers was taken at Lake Palestine in Texas in the year 2007 for the new year of 2008. There are three bookmarkers on each page and in pdf formate. You can print copies and cut them out and pass them forward. The New Year bookmarker with black background will take more ink but it is the prettiest of the two New Year bookmarkers. They are in pdf format with three to a page. I print them on photo paper.

Let me know if you enjoy it and share some of your childhood Christmas memories with me if you please. Childhood Memories of Christmas We have a new priest at St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Church in Flint, Texas. The next link takes you to a prayer card I wrote for him. The graphic came from a photo I took of a statue of Our Blessed Mary and Baby Jesus at St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans, Louisiana in 2012. It's a large graphic so be sure to click back to this page. Make note, there are other prayers in my website. I have been writing prayers for many years. Prayer Card for Father Rowland The next link takes you directly to a prayer card I wrote for the youth of our country. Some people think it's a prayer for youth to pray. It is a prayer for everybody to pray for the youth of America and the World. The photo came from a picture I took at the Oratory of St. Philip Neri, Church of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in London, England in 2013. Our church is in need of a Youth Minister. Please pray for us in that respect. Thanks. Prayer for the Youth Before I wrote the prayer card for our youth, I wrote a prayer for Father Timothy Kelly who was our priest for thirteen years. Here are two different prayer cards with the same prayer and different pictures which I took. Father Kelly was transfered to St. Jude's Catholic Church in Gun Barrel City, Texas. The image of the candle came from a picture I took of our altar candles. The picture of Father Kelly came from a photo I took of him at the Roselawn Perpetual Care Cemetery in Tyler, Texas, the Catholic section a few years ago. These are also large graphics. Be sure to click back to this page. Prayer for Father Kelly Prayer for Father Kelly The next prayer is one I wrote in 1999. I thought I was in Fort Worth but due to the date I must have been in Houston. I journaled extensively and many of my prayers and poems came from that. Too often I felt like a prisoner of my own body. I was reaching out to God so very hard and one day I decided God needed to be praised more. This was the result of that thinking. We too often do not praise God enough. On December 17, 1988 I was a passenger in a T-Bone fashion car wreck. A friend of mine was driving. I was the only one seriously injured. My face broke the windshield. The result was an arachnoid tear, a basilar skull fracture, and a left cerebellar hemmorhage. My journaling rendered many poems and prayers. This does nothing but praise God. The sunset picture was taken in our front yard I believe in 2016. I aimed high above the house tops and trees. Too many people try to use God like a microwave oven expecting answers to their prayers on their time schedule instead of waiting on God on His time schedule. God is not a mail order catalogue. This prayer can be printed as an 8x10, 5x7, 4x6. A cancer doctor asked permission to put it on a wall. She framed it as an 8x10 and put it on a wall in one of the exam rooms that did not have a lot of things on it already! She wanted it to be seen. WOW! My goal is for this prayer to go around the world but I need your help. Please pass this web address on and pass this prayer on. Let me know the country you are in and sending it to. I do not want names, just that you are passing it on. I call this Passing It Forward. Just click on Webmaster and send an email. THANKS! Praises Be To God The Praises Be To God as a bookmarker. It is a 2010 Word document with three on the page. Print it and cut each bookmarker out. Share them with friends, family, and even strangers you meet. Help me get this prayer around the world. God has blessed me. I want to PASS IT FORWARD. Thanks! Praise God Bookmarker Armor of God Prayer Reference Ephesians Praises A prayer for myself Prayer 1 A generic prayer Prayer for the USA In 2012 our country was in turmoil where politics was concerned. I take hundreds of photos of our American flag wherever we go. This picture has the flag in darkness on one side and light on the other but the lightings are trianguler in shape. My brother said he hoped it was not an omen for our country. Then these thoughts came to my mind and I added them with this flag photo. Please share the page. This is a direct link to the graphic, it is not on a webpage. Our country is in need of these positive thoughts. USA Flag - Prayerful Thoughts FOR WHAT ITS WORTH: Tropical Storm Edouard was on August 12, 2008 followed by Hurricane Gustav on September 1, 2008 followed by Hurricane Ike on Sepember 13, 2008. That is a reason for moving away from the coast. Do the math, all in one month's time. We evacuated for both hurricanes only weeks apart. When we got home after Gustav we did not unpack our belongings. Ike was brewing in the Gulf. I knew he was going to turn which he did. I braved the weather and took the videos of Edouard starting in the backyard where we had an eight foot high fence. The fence was swaying. Winds were 55 + mph. Tropical Storm Edouard, August 2008 While living in Carthage, Texas a female friend who was working for the Panola County Post newspaper asked if I would write an editorial with regards to what would eventually become known as the gay movement. This was in 1978. I was given a few documents and asked to do the research. The editorial was published and the owner of the newspaper asked me if I would hire on a reporter and photographer. I did and covered all events in Panola County. It is here to download as a pdf document. I scanned it in sections and put it together for download to be printed as an 8.5 by 11. This was 1978.

Genealogy Helps and Links Genealogy Italian-Sicily In 2012 I was asked to do research on Professor Edwin Stephen Goodrich for the December 2013 Goodrich Family Association Gospel which is what they call their quarterly newsletter. There was a world family writers contest. My article was entered in the competition. Even though my article did not win, it was in the Goodrich Gospel newsletter which came in third place. That was exciting to me. My article is different than the ones I found with all my research. Instead of writing about his scientific expertise and making new pathways for science, I chronicled his life. A genealogist group in England sent me the information for where Prof. Goodrich is buried. That took several years to locate. Professor E. Stephen Goodrich The next article I was asked to research for and write is about Four Union Soldiers buried in the Nashville National Cemetery in Nashville, Tennessee. I wrote the article for the December 2010 edition of the Goodrich Family Association's Quarterly Newsletter. It is a story about Four Union Soldiers Buried in the Nashville National Cemetery. My husband and I drove to Nashville to take photos of the graves. The Four Union Soldiers were: 1. Harvey A Goodrich from Freedom, Ohio 2. William C Goodrich from Coles County, Illinois 3. Issac A Goodrich from Michigan 4.

Click Here I experienced PTSD after a major car wreck. It lasted for years. Since 2004 I have had need for a motorized scooter. Health issues have warranted more and more use of my scooter. I have a prescription for mine. The need has always been for long distances, that is for shopping. Until 2015 when I had carbon monoxide poisoning I could walk across the street to a neighbor's and check the mail in the mailbox. My mobility has been continually declining. As of May 10th if this year 2018, my endurance has drastically declined as has my mobility. I can't even walk across the house anymore. Nobody knows what happened the morning of May 10th. My husband could not wake me nor could the paramedics. They brought me straight from bed before breakfast to the emergency room and straight to the Cat Scan machine. They did a Cat Scan of my brain without and then with contrast. The next morning they did an MRI of my brain. There was no obvious evidence of a stroke. They did many more tests too but one they did not do was an EEG. My neurologist said he was surprised they did not do one. So he ordered a seventy-two hour EEG done at home. There were two video cameras, one in the bedroom where we sleep and one that my husband could move from my computer room to the living area. The result was I am having seizure activity in the left temporal lobe. That's complex partial seizures because sometimes the activity is in the right temporal area. Anyway, I will be adding the Caterfly section back to my website. In the meantime you may view the first page here. The Caterfly Since we travel carrying my motorized scooter this next website is very helpful for people who travel with a wheelchair or a scooter. A viewer sent the url to me.

You have to be a member to post and view posts. This may be a good genealogy website for those who had family members who gave their lives in WWII. "The website of the Stichting Verenigde Adoptanten Amerikaanse Oorlogsgraven (Foundation United Adopters American War Graves) in the Netherlands, which was founded in July 2011. The purpose is for people to adopt a grave to keep the memory and honor of those who gave their lives. We also aim to help other adopters and relatives in their research. Therefore, you will find on our website various tips on where to find and request information on American soldiers who served in World War Two and who gave their lives for freedom." Foundation United Adopters American War Graves On my interesting sites or favorite links page you will find an icon for a mission in Bullard, Texas. However, I will include it here too because anyone with PTSD may be in need of their services. PRINCESS and SERVICE DOGS section It's a very long section with a lot of information. Documents for Pet food issues, service dog permit and how to nebulize a dog are all online for download. Someone I met who claimed he trains service dogs told me you that by Federal Law you do not need a document stating your animal is a service animal. However, everytime we have flown, the airlines required me to show a document stating my dog was indeed a service animal. The document states what service she provides which is a matter of medical privacy but the document was required to be able to take her on board the airplane with me. Best Friend - about Princess On A Wing and A Prayer With No Spare Princess' Hawaii Diary and Quarantine Pet Diet Information Medication Information Form Please note that not all animals can become service animals without professional training. Guide dogs, mobility dogs and dogs for the hearing-impaired must be professionaly trained. Your doctor has to sign the document but first must be fully aware of what your dog is capable of and convinced the dog does perform the service. I believe the law now is the service animal must be a dog. Check with your states laws regarding service animals to be sure they don't have to be professionaly trained. Princess was a seizure alert dog. Friends and neighbors told me what Princess would do before a seizure. I began to pay closer attention to her so I could get to safety and not fall. She was very much in tune to my body which helped me to learn my auras. From research I learned that the success rate for training seizure alert dogs is about eighty percent. The dog needs to be very fine tuned to its owner. Princess most definitely was fine tuned to my body and needs. It is also important to note that a service/guide dog must wear a service/guide dog vest. The vest with Service Animal on it helps eleviate problems. Some vests have pockets. You may read about them here: Why Your Service Dog Should Wear A Vest There you may also read and learn about the proper dog collar and vest for the service your service dog provides. The first vest I purchased for Princess was of a solid fabric. But living in a hotter climate she needed something cooler. So I purchased a vest with mesh inserts. A harness collar is better than a regular dog collar. There is more control of the dog with such a collar. You have probably noticed that guide dogs have harnesses. Service animals must be kept clean and be current for all vaccinations. They must also behave in public and are not to be petted or fed in public or by the public. They are working. They are not considered pets. I carried Princess' service animal permit in a pocket of her vest but it also included the purpose she served. So that was private medical information about me. It is illegal for anybody to ask for your medical information. However, it had to be shown when we were going to fly somewhere. At a cafeteria in Texas a food inspector told me to leave. She said to show her my medical records. I told her to show me hers and I would show her mine. It was illegal for her to ask. I reported the incident and her employer had to train all his employees with reference to service animals in public. Never allow anybody to intimidate you. I never sued. I always did arbitration. Princess and I educated a lot of people and businesses. NOTE: A closed head injury is what rendered me the need for a service dog. However, I managed to do some part time jobs prior to using Princess as a service dog. Brain injury testimonies pages are linked on my Favorite Links Page. Michael Lily, Atty at Law in Honolulu approved the document I created for a service dog. It is below in both html and pdf format. Service Animal Permit html document Service Animal Permit pdf document Note: Princess became very ill. The emergency doctor said he would write the prescription for the Albuterol if I can get instructions on how to nebulize a dog. I conferred with a doctor in Michigan and one on the ineternet and came up with the instructions which are in this next pdf document. I had a large dog crate and already had the nebulizer for myself. Using A Nebulizer On Dogs pdf document While living in Hawaii I became a member of the Coalition to End Quarantine. We succeeded in our mission. The next links take you to six testimonies with one being mine. They are all in pdf format. When I was still living in Hawaii I testified in person. After moving back to the states I had to write and fax my testimony which is what you will read from the documents below. I was the one who found the world compendium. The dates are a bit confusing to me. I don't remember why the different dates. Maybe we later had to fax what had been already sent. We had members all over the world. I praise God for my gift of words.

Later I will be uploading photos of different things I have done. My clown character, Crystal, was born at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Kalamazoo, Michigan. While still living in Michigan I studied Middle Eastern Dance and performed. I also attended Christian Music Conferences in Kentucky and the Fellowship Of Christian Magicians workshops in Indiana. After moving to Hawaii, I studied the hula and performed at Ala Moana Center in Honolulu. My instructor was one of the hula competition judges, oh to be so fortunate. I have performed in seven of our United States. Also, I did the upholstery on the aumusement rides that used to be in the Fort Worth Stockyards. I even rode a mule throuhout the stockyards and rode a camel, all while wearing clown gear. Too cool! Throughout the years I did sewing and alterations as a hobby. All of this will be on new pages to be uploaded. It's retirement time with exception of photography, writing, my website, and miming the crucifixion. My mime presentation is an original I created.
