March 8 – Zentangle 201 – Black Tile class

Francie & Finch Bookshop is offering a Zentangle 201 – Black Tile class on Thursday, March 8th. The class will be held at the shop in the historic Telephone Building at 130 S. 13th Street at 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.  The class will be led by Certified Zentangle Teacher, Carrie Smith.

Create dramatic black tiles with white ink and pencil.  These tiles really pop!  Join Carrie, Certified Zentangle Teacher, and your fellow tanglers for more fun, focus, and relaxation!

What is Zentangle?

The Zentangle Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns.  We call these patterns tangles.  You create tangles with combinations of dots, lines,  curves,  and orbs. These simple shapes are the “Elemental Strokes” in all zentangle art. These patterns are drawn on small pieces of paper called “tiles.”  We call them tiles because you can assemble them into mosaics.

As you use the Zentangle Method to create beautiful images, you likely will enjoy increased focus, creativity, self-confidence, and an increased sense of well-being.

We believe that life is an art form and that each person is an artist.  The Zentangle Method is an elegant metaphor and model for inspiring a deliberate artistry in life.

For those with previous Zentangle experience, the one-and-a-half hour class is $30 and includes all your Zentangle supplies.   Limited to first 10 participants.   Call 402 781 0459 to register.

5 Top Ways to Find Love After 65

Posted On 02 Feb 2017 By : 
 It’s no secret that intimacy and relationships are the most important part of life. They are crucial throughout our lives, but especially in our latter life for happiness, health and overall well-being. Unfortunately, finding a partner later in life can be challenging.Top Ways to Find Love After 65

Many of the difficulties that we face when approaching love are based on expectations that love ought to be the same as it was during middle-age. Instead, it is important for older people to define new and authentic modes of intimacy and sexuality, so knowing where to find potential partners is important, and is, interestingly, more accessible than ever before for today’s aging population.

Can Senior Living Help Your Marriage?

These Couples Say Yes

Posted On 08 Feb 2018 . By : 
    Harold and Lois Greene still get around pretty well, considering he’s 92 years old and she’s 86. Harold sometimes needs a cane to walk and Lois’s hands shake a bit from Parkinson’s disease. The couple stays active, though, thanks to moving into a senior living community in Arizona about eight months ago.

The 9 Signs of Hidden Depression

How to help a person that has developed hidden depression – If you notice that one of your loved ones or someone close to you has developed one or more of the symptoms that we mentioned here, the best solution is to talk to them first and offer help, try to talk about the things that are bothering them and remove the masks. In such a conversation it is important not to try to minimize the value of the person’s problems or joke about them in order to ease the situation, but take them seriously – try to genuinely help them, by really touching on the problems they’re dealing with and not with empty words like “cheer up,” “just relax,” or “stop acting like that.” In any case, if the person in front of you refuses to talk, don’t try to force them, but keep an eye on their behavior. Be attentive, and let the person dealing with the problem feel that you are here for them.     From BabaMail

Sunday, February 25th – African American Homesteader Town of DeWitty

Celebrate African American History Month and Learn About the African American Homesteader Town of DeWitty, Nebraska at Homestead National Monument of America

Artes Johnson, Chair of the Descendants of DeWitty, and Dr. William Hunt will present a program on the African American town of DeWitty, Nebraska at Homestead National Monument of America’s Education Center on Sunday, February 25, 2018 at 1:00 p.m., followed by a screening of the documentary film Frontier University Dreams at 2:00 p.m.

DeWitty, Nebraska was the longest-settled and most permanent African American homesteader town in the state of Nebraska. Established in 1907 by African American homesteaders in Cherry County, Nebraska, DeWitty provided shelter, education, and community for its residents until the last of them moved away in 1936. During a time of racial violence and discrimination in much of the rest of the United States, the residents of DeWitty and the residents of the nearby, predominately white town of Brownlee, lived as neighbors—working together and gathering regularly for baseball games and dances. In 2016, a historical roadside marker was erected by the Nebraska State Historical Society to remember this remarkable place. You can learn more of the incredible story of DeWitty at Homestead National Monument of America on February 25, 2018!

As always, programs at Homestead National Monument of America are free of charge and open to everyone.

Remember, Homestead National Monument of America has an exciting schedule of events planned for 2018. Keep up with the latest information by following us on Twitter (HomesteadNM) and Facebook (HomesteadNM).
