‘Toni L. Taylor is a visionary artist whose work travels through the realms of fantasy and mysticism. She feels a special kinship with the mysteries of Ancient Egypt as well as the spirit of Native America. Goddess imagery is represented powerfully in her collection and as a lover of all things celestial, the beauty and limitlessness of the Cosmos often finds its way into her paintings. Toni’s creative history includes fine art, commercial illustration and scenic painting.

She says of her work, “When people view my creations, I want them to feel like they’re taking a bit of a mental, emotional and spiritual vacation… tapping into the ethereal and otherworldly.” Having had no formal training, Toni considers herself ‘life taught’ and her gift a blessing from the Universe.’

(MYRTLE BEACH)   On January 3, 2015, Matthew Klosowski died from a prescription drug overdose.  Matt had become addicted to prescription opioids after suffering a back injury and resulting surgery in Delaware.  He was 37 years old when he died in a hotel room in Florida.  I connected with Matt’s mom, Marybeth Cichocki shortly after his death.  Marybeth wanted to tell Matt’s story and I wanted to hear it.

(SAN FRANCISCO)  On October 1, 2015, ten people were killed and another seven injured after Christopher Harper-Mercer, a 26-year-old gunman, opened fire in a classroom at Umpqua Community College in southern Oregon.  Harper-Mercer then took his own life.  President Obama vowed to continue pushing new gun policies that he said would prevent further mass shootings.  Will this mass killings be a tipping point resulting in passage of reasonable federal gun control legislation?  Probably not.

Tamil Nadu, Global Tamils should be organised in addressing US-UN failure: Boyle

Professor Francis Boyle, an expert in international law, who teaches at University of Illinois, in an interview given to the 3CR radio broadcast in Melbourne Saturday in the “Tamil manifest” program said that he sees the millions of Tamils in Tamil Naadu, its Chief Minister Jayalalitha, a unified Tamil diaspora and the young generation of Tamils as the propelling agents to force the changes necessary to bring justice to the victims of Tamil genocide by taking the Sinhala genocidaires to Court. The horrendous nature of genocide needs an international tribunal to dispense justice, and the United Nations and the U.S have failed in their obligations, Boyle said. Geopolitical compulsions have pulverized U.S. foreign policy to collude with the genocidaires, Boyle told TamilNet.

(TamilNet)  Tamils in Tamil Nadu should exert pressure on New Delhi to take the case to the International Court of Justice (ICJ), Professor Boyle said adding that “if the 50 million Tamils living in Tamil Nadu can get Prime Minister Modi to do this, I will be happy to file the charges myself; draft the papers and file the charges. But we will need Prime Minister Modi, and unfortunately he seems to be supporting the process recommended by the Human Rights Council.”
