Free Workshop At The Oscar Foss Memorial Library

Awaken your Soul-Full Self, an Introduction to Making Collage Cards

Creative workshop for those interested in self exploration and expression, and a meaningful and fun connection with others using the Collage Card making and processing method. No previous art experience necessary, everyone is an artist and can have fun being creative.


Called “Making Creative Collage Cards” this workshop is for beginners to learn about making Collage Cards. We will work with amazing images from a large variety of magazines to create soul-tending cards (much like tarot cards) to assist in learning more about ones self, ones soul and in accessing ones inner wisdom and guidance. If time permits there will be optional card readings and sharing.


The workshop will run from 10:15 AM – 1:30 PM on December 4th.


To register contact Jane LeBlanc at (603) 509-8884 or email [email protected].

Letter To The Editor

In response to Russ Atherton’s letter of November 16, 2016:


You are correct, Russ, it is never too late to learn a life lesson. You are correct, I was not prepared and I did not do enough and so I will “buck up.” I will buck up and stand up and speak more clearly and persistently for what is right. I will buck up and speak out each time I see injustice against my fellow human being (or against our shared and only home, the planet earth).


This was not a game that was lost. This was our humanity and common decency and in grieving this loss, I cry and I protest – it IS about injustice. The person elected to the highest office in the land makes fun of the disabled, brags about sexual assault, and threatens entire races and religions. And while I do understand that many of the people who elected him may not be like that themselves, I am grieving to know that those traits could be so easily overlooked.


Yes, we are teaching our children the wrong lessons indeed. And I will buck up and try to change that. Peace and blessings, Suzanne Allison Barnstead

Thanksgiving Day 2016


True thankfulness is more than being grateful for what we possess. It is an attitude that allows a compassionate relationship amongst civilized people.


Hunger. The homeless. Chronic diseases. Ignorance. Unemployment. Untimely deaths (to name a few calamities). These are words, these are things that should have nothing to do with Thanksgiving Day, however, despair threaten to reach out to what is most precious to us; our children, our legacy, our future.


The compassion equation: beliefs+ action = love+ help. It’s in the heart that counts.


When you see or know of someone in need, love demands a loving deed; don’t just say you love them true, prove it by the deeds you do.


Thanksgiving prayers for:

Our leaders that they provide us with a good government; Our military around the globe serving, protecting, and defending; To our civil servants who provide protection, peace, and security (police, fire, and rescue).


To employers, that provide jobs to people who need work, to support themselves and their families; To social and medical personnel, who provide service to the sick and homeless, for their troubled souls and ailing bodies; To you and me my fellow citizens, for those in the world who are alone. Help them realize that they are never really alone (we’re there for them).


Happy Thanksgiving Day everyone! May God continue to Bless America, Land of the Free and Home of the Brave?


Dr. Leon Bly

Barnstead, NH
