guest post by Pamela Moss,


THE VISION BOARD by Joyce Schwarz features artist Pamela Moss work. Pamela not only led a recent workshop but she reports on it in this blog post. Thanks for sharing Pamela:

The Vision Board book featured artist Pamela Moss led a vision board "mini vision board workshop" this past weekend at the 58th Annual State University of New York at Cortland Recreation Conference in Cortland NY.

This academic presentation/workshop explored the use of vision boards in the field of recreation and leisure education (yes, you can become a tenured Professor of Recreation and Leisure!).


Educators, directors of nursing homes, camp counselors, recreation therapists -- all new to vision boards -- get inspired to use this powerful, fun tool with their diverse clients

"Wow, it's a universal tool! Anyone can benefit from making a vision board!" raved Conference participants, talking about creating vision boards with incarcerated teens, seniors, kids at summer camp, patients with strokes and dementia, college students, abused children....

"People who can't express themselves easily in words, like stroke victims and abused kids, can use images to communicate what matters to them. Vision boards will be wonderful for them."

"We can use this process for whatever our clients need -- they can create vision boards for friendship, or group cooperation, or personal goals, or to discover new interests..."


Searching for images to express your  “power words” and what lights you up


The process of looking for images often clarifies and deepens your vision -- sometimes in unexpected ways, especially if you allow images to "call to you"


“Hey, we could do vision boards with our staff, to develop new programs!”

“Or to envision how we want to improve our organizations...”

The vision board comes together -- an experience of concentration and flow


The Vision Board: The Secret to an Extraordinary Life made a splash at the 58th Annual State University of New York at Cortland Recreation Conference – workshop participants were excited to buy copies, and to take the vision board concept back to their clients and organizations.


ABOUT GUEST BLOGGER PAMELA MOSS: When she's not leading vision board workshops, featured Vision Board artist Pamela Moss paints "Possibility Portraits" for people who want to remember who they really are and what's possible. See

Act Your Shoe Size This Weekend, advises Joyce Schwarz, author, The Vision Board

Wow, during a recent online radio show with host Limor Schafman,, called DigIn ( I realized how serious all of us have gotten because of the economy. So my suggestion for all of you (and me) is act the age of your shoe size.

IF YOU WEAR SIZE 9 -- become a 9 year old for 30 minutes....

So following my own advice -- I thought hmm what can I do to 'act' my shoe size which is 9 this weekend. DUH...what does a 9 year old like to do? Uhhh I had forgotten. So thanks to the internet I went to this site -- Child Development - The Nine Year Old at Play Activities and Interests

How did I find that site? - I put into google search engine bar these words "activites for 9 year old" and my answer is in that link above-- here's a brief preview. Thanks to Kimberly Keith, the guide at for having this info available for myself and my readers:

Nine year olds are absorbed in their play interests and will spend hours at their chosen activities. Children's interests begin to follow personal styles of introversion and extraversion. Many enjoy solitary play - video games, tv, reading, dolls, construction sets, or crafts. Other nine-year-old boys and girls love sports, especially soccer, baseball, football, and basketball. Most kids at nine enjoy bicycling, skating, swimming, and other forms of independent, active play; though they are not as proficient at them as they will be at ten.

HMM so what else would put me in a 9 year old's state of mind-- the right shoes of course - hmm first thing comes to mind is red sparkle shoes-- Wizard of oz but what else is there..Then I spotted this pix on Google images -- why settle for one pair of shoes-- I could wear a lot of different shoes this weekend and here is a pix of girls shoes reminding me of that!


SO HAVE FUN AND DON't listen to anyone who says ACT YOUR AGE_- or do if you act your shoe size.
