Being the mother of two wonderful girls, I often ask myself: "What values can I possibly instil in my children that will support them throughout their entire lives?" My goal is to give them something that will positively impact on their relationships, strengthen their resilience in challenging situations, make them confident thinkers, and prepare them for those unexpected moments when certain doors in life close. Like any parent, I would like to shape my children into active creators, helping them to open many new doors filled with plenty of opportunities. It is no surprise that I find myself asking the same questions, during sessions with my clients. Even then I come up with the identical answer. If I had to choose and share only one concept from the whole field of psychology, it would be the 'power of positive thinking'. While there are many valuable theories, methods, and tools that can assist to improve the quality of our lives, in my professional opinion the power of positive thinking tops that list. Positive thinking can be used as a tool to build resilience, help us address past experiences, enhance the enjoyment of the present moment and maximize our cognitive resources to continuously improve the future. Thoughts impact our feelings, immune system, healing or recovery of the body and mind, as well as our social interactions. Positive thinking generally has a positive effect in various areas of our lives, while negative thinking considerably limits us.The See Bee Tee story book is an interactive tool for children, their parents or to anyone who would like to know some basics of positive thinking. The story is inspired by the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy concept (hence, the hidden CBT in the title) which is made into a set of fun activities. The book is designed to show negative thought patterns, and how to replace them with positive remedies. The coloring pages are aimed to reinforce 'right here' and 71 'right now' moments (via mindfulness) and to prompt young readers to have more discussion about the topics in the book. There is also a fun memory game starting on page 53, depicting the thought patterns with the main goal of improving the whole child's learning experience. It is mutually interactive, as the caregivers themselves can learn positive thought patterns, apply them in their own everyday lives, and become a role model for their children. See Bee Tee is written in a rhyming fashion which enables young readers to easily learn and memorize the message. The story also sends a message that sometimes life events can knock us down. However, with caring friends, new opportunities of learning, and finding new possibilities we can get back up again - especially if we dare to try new things and push ourselves out of the comfort zone. See Bee Tee encourages us to be flexible and to enthusiastically restructure our life.
While living and teaching in Shanghai, China, I soaked up the city’s culture and history as a wide-eyed Canadian ex-pat. It was during this time that I formed the Visual Poetry team with three of my artistically-gifted students. Together, we create art from a multi-cultural, multi-disciplined perspective.Art does not exist in a void; it has always been about connections – between the painter and the landscape; between the writer and the reader. Art reflects, and shapes, the society that creates it. Art is a process of continual interaction. Whether it is poetry or prose, Visual Poetry reflects this by combining multiple styles and media into each piece.As I adapted to this new culture, and way of life, these three students, all born and raised in Shanghai, became my most influential teachers and creative partners. Cindy Fay Xie is currently a freshman at the Pratt Institute in New York. A talented photographer and painter, she captures the beauty, as well as the harsh realities of life. Using her lens to critique the world around her, she visualizes many of the frustrating aspects of the modern world with expertise.Maggie Chen is presently studying at Rutgers University in New Jersey. Her photography captures natural beauty with a sublime style as she brings tolife the idealistic, romantic side of beauty. Julianne Vermilion, at Wake Forest University in North Carolina, is a superb painter and illustrator. Her eclectic visual-art styles blend flawlessly with the sometimes wild, esoteric, and psychological directions of the text. Adela Fei and Sasha Sha recently joined Visual Poetry as leaders of the Mandarin translation team. Adela is currently completing high school in Tokyo, Japan, while Sasha recently graduated with honours from ShiXi high school in Shanghai. They merge their unique poetic styles to the art so that the text both reflects the English and resonates well in Chinese. Together, we form an artistic team we call Visual Poetry. Working together, we collectively tell a story from our multicultural perspectives, combining our talents to create one holistic piece of art. The goal of Visual Poetry is to blend East and West through a stylish mixture of rhythm and colour, poetry and prose, modern and ancient, and romantic and real.
Chief Justice Kerwin (1889 - 1963) studied law at Osgoode Hall in Toronto, was called to the bar of Ontario in 1911, became King's Counsel in 1928, and became a Justice of the Supreme Court of Ontario in 1932. In 1935, he became a Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, and in 1954 he became Chief Justice. From the start of his career, Patrick seemed un¬complicated, pleasant, and ambitious. Success, advancement, distinction and, finally, the highest laurel of the law all came to him. However, there was more to him than that.In his many years in the courts, no one witnessed Patrick act rudely to counsel appearing before him nor was it ever known for him to lose his temper in court. It is wonderful to know that a man who acted with such decorum over the many years is still having his words heard through the judgments provided during his career.Patrick Grandcourt Kerwin's innate sense of fair play and justice permeated his work from the time he practised law in Guelph, to sitting on the bench of the Ontario High Court and Supreme Court of Canada. In his own life, he kept it simple and straightforward. As his daughter noted, "If you presented him with a good argument, he would weigh the issue on its own merits."During a speech he gave upon receiving an Honourary Doctorate of Laws at the University of Toronto in 1956, Patrick spoke of the past, the future and the notion of 'goodness'. On that day (Address at the University of Toronto, May 25, 1956 1-2), he stated,"Having been born and practised law in Ontario, it is particularly gratifying that such an academic distinction should come to me from this University, situate in the capital of the Province and exercising a profound influence not only in Ontario but throughout Canada... It is a far cry from the early days of this institution and its predecessor, from the days of Upper Canada and muddy York, and from the times of comparatively slow motion in the way of travel. Since then great strides have been taken in all fields of human endeavour and the sons and daughters of this, and other universities have taken a prominent part in the march of progress, - not only in practical and mundane things but also in research and in the sphere of ideas and ideals. This in truth is an exemplification of the principle set forth by Newman in his Idea of a University that "the good is always useful". Goodness for the individual and, therefore, for all mankind. As Canadians we are concerned with the meaning and effect of that quality, in Ontario, in the other Provinces and in the Territories. Its full force may be felt only if the rights of the individual as a human being be held in high regard and nothing be done, or suffered, to cast him from his pedestal. To put the matter no higher, each one who graduates from this University has a duty to himself, to his parents and relatives and to his professors to see to it that these rights are protected."The extent of Patrick's experience in the field of law brought to the fore for him this notion of goodness, that the individual was the most important aspect, as well as justice was best served when not delayed. His reputation was that of a fair and hard¬working man. He had worked long and was not far from retirement age. But Patrick Grandcourt Kerwin was never able to retire and enjoy a time of ease and reflection. He was never able to enjoy the 'evening of life'; a time spent in relaxation, deliberation and relishing his grandchildren's achievements. As well, he was unable to have time to ponder a life well lived and a life of service to the public good.
Told through the eyes of an observant and resilient boy, the book begins with the German seizure of Athens in 1941. Grim events of war, displacement, and exile never extinguish the curiosity - even the joys - of his childhood. Compelling writing mixes reality and fantasy to concoct a memorable tribute to the human spirit, from Asia Minor to Greece to Canada. - Douglas Babington, the Bivouac Prayers."The ugliest phases of the Civil War were just beginning. It would pit household against household, village against village, and sometimes, brother against brother. The blood-letting would go on and on. The adults seemed to sense that all of this was going to happen and they only spoke in muted tones." - TasouliWith curiosity and humor Tasouli tells us about his life, including stories about his cat the Resistance hero, the intricate relationships between a young Jewish physician, German offi cers, and Greek partisan communists and their British captives. A strange character appears in his dreams, sometimes supportive, sometimes terrifying, and they develop a strong bond. Occupation Child is ultimately about how a child views hunger, language, politics and love.
A fascinating view of the "other side" in World War II, on the domestic front. Born in Berlin, Dorothea Gutzeit spent her formative years in Nazi Germany and in her war-torn city. She then forged a new life in Canada. Daughter Irene Riznek (Koenigsberger) was born in Germany and came to Canada as a child. She prepared this autobiography based on historical certificates, documents and Annenpas records, and on her mother's notes and their many conversations.
