What the mind can conceive, the will can achieve.

The Timely Words of

WISDOM n n n

AUGUST 2021

IN DECEMBER OF 1914, Thomas Alva Edison’s laboratory was virtually destroyed by a massive fire. Although the damage exceeded $2 million—an enormous sum at the turn of the century—the buildings were only insured for $238,000 because they were made of concrete and believed to be fireproof. Most of Edison’s life, work, plans, drawings, and experiments went up in spectacular flames that December evening. At the height of the fire, Edison’s 24-yearold son, Charles, frantically searched for his father among the smoke and debris. He finally found him, calmly watching the scene, his face glowing in the reflection, his white hair blowing in the wind. “My heart ached for him,” Charles said. “He was 67— no longer a young man—and everything was going up in flames. When he saw me, he shouted, ‘Charles, where’s your mother?’ When I told him I didn’t know, he said. ‘Find her. Bring her here. She will never see anything like this as long as she lives.’” The next morning, Edison looked at the ruins and made this remarkable statement to his son: “There is great value in disaster. All our mistakes are burned up. Thank God we can start anew.” Three weeks after the fire, Edison managed to deliver his first phonograph.

by Vic tor Pa r a c h in

Edison’s inspiring response to tragedy is an excellent example of the truth in this Spanish proverb: If your house is on fire, warm yourself by it. That statement succinctly conveys the wisdom that adversity, properly perceived, can be transformed into advantage; that misfortune can be used as the raw material to fuel a renewed and vigorous motivation. Along with that Spanish proverb, our culture has many other words of wisdom which can guide us through all sorts of personal and professional difficulties. Here are some other times—and timely—words of wisdom to draw on when life’s journey is difficult and discouraging. When the mind can conceive, then will can achieve. The fact is that all things have their beginning in a vision or mental picture. Those who see themselves as succeeding are generally the ones who succeed. Tijuana, Mexico, is one of the toughest cities in the world. It has more than its share of dirt, noise, pollution, corruption, drugs and crime. Nevertheless, hundreds of people make their way from all over Mexico to this rapidly growing cosmopolitan center weekly. The reason: Tijuana is Mexico’s city of opportunity,

a magnet for those seeking to improve their lives and fulfill their dreams. One who made her way to Tijuana, as a 19-year-old is Monica Garcia. She came in order to attend Medical School. Her own resilience and attitude have opened doors to her in spite of crushing poverty and hardship. Her father abandoned her when she was 15. She got a job, worked eight hours a day, remained in high school and won a scholarship to study medicine. “Always, always, always,” she explained, “when I was little, I would go by the university and say, ‘One

day I will be there,’ Now I am actually there,” she said with a smile. Learn from your mistakes. That simple proverb has been a guiding credo for many highly creative and successful individuals. Thomas Watson, the former chairman who helped develop IBM from a small business machine company into one of the world’s largest computer corporations, said: “Double your rate of failure. Failure is a teacher—a harsh one, but the best.” And, Ann Richards, former governor of Texas noted: “One of the most valuable lessons I learned is that we all have to learn from our mistakes

and we learn from those mistakes a lot more than we learn from the things we succeeded in doing.” The lesson for living: our mistakes, blunders, slip-ups are fertile ground from which new insights and strengths emerge. So important is the principle of learning from mistakes that Economist Kenneth Ewart Boulding declared: “Nothing fails like success because we don’t learn from it. We learn only from failure.” Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it. Those words of wisdom come from Helen Keller who was blinded and deafened as a child, yet graduated from college, became a best-selling author and world-renown inspirational figure. One of life’s most glorious experiences is that of turning tragedy into triumph. William Penn noted that suffering is often the prerequisite for success. “No pain, no balm; no thorns, no throne; no gall, no glory; no cross, no crown,” he wrote. At sixteen years of age Allison Jones has become a world-class skier even though she is missing a leg. The Colorado resident was born with a birth defect which left her as an above-the-knee amputee. When she was five, her mother got Allison hooked on skiing. At 16, she became one of the youngest members of the United States Disabled Ski Team. “I was picked the day before my (16th) birthday. Nice present, huh?” she said with delight. The lack of one leg has not prevented Allison from pursuing all sorts of athletic activity. “I’ll try any sport: rock climbing, swimming, running, high jumping. I also cycle with one foot...Last summer I competed in a major bike race against other girls who have both legs and actually beat another cyclist. I was so excited,” she added. Allison Jones’ personal philosophy can help others who are facing great challenges in life. “If I can do it, I’ll do it. If I can’t, I’ll just try harder,” she said. Is your cup half full or half empty? This perceptive question is a potent reminder that perspective is reality. What we see is what will be. If a great difficulty comes tumbling into our lives and we define it as a “catastrophe,” that is precisely what it will be. However, if we step back, detach ourselves slightly, then we can see possibilities and potentials not previously evident. The catastrophic view is that of a cup half empty. The detached view is that of a cup half full. There is a world of difference between the two views. “Attitudes are capable of making the same experience either pleasant or painful,” noted author John Powell. Train your eye to always see a cup half full, not half empty! E X C L U S I V E LY Y O U R S

Words Of Wisdom

A handful of patience is worth more than a bushel of brains. This Dutch saying is a reminder that patience is a vital skill. A small dose of patience can prevent us from making a big mistake, giving up prematurely, drifting off into hopelessness. Shakespeare wisely observed: “How poor are they who have not patience! What wound did ever heal but buy degrees.” Consider the dilemma of Mary Zemites of Mesa, Arizona. After her husband died and she was left to raise their three young children alone she cried out to her mother: “Mom, it’s so hard without Greg. Could I be both mother and father to the kids? What did life hold for us? I just don’t know if I can make it,” she said. “You can,” the mother replied, “Just don’t give up—ever!” As her mother spoke those words Mary thought about the power of patience and remembered an inspiring and motivating moment out of her mother’s life. It took place years earlier one summer when Mary was 14. She and her friends spent most of their hot summer days at the local pool. One afternoon as she was sunning, her mother came to the pool and made her way up the diving board. The teen shared in amazement at her mother

perched on the end of the high dive in her one-piece swimsuit. “I could tell she was scared. Mom stood there for an eternity. Then she jumped—feet first!” While that “dive” was not impressive, Mary’s mother continued coming to the pool most of the summer eventually working up her courage to dive headfirst. There were many noisy belly flops. Other swimmers and lifeguards cringed at the sound of the mother attempting to dive from the high board. One day toward the end of the summer, the mother crossed the hot concrete at the pool and again made her way up the high diving board. “With a small bounce, she launched herself upwards. She made a graceful arc in midair, then straightened and slipped into the water with hardly a ripple. A perfect dive!” Mary recalled. A lifeguard cheered and a friend said to the teenager: “Wow, your mom’s great.” The memory of her mother’s patience and determination that summer empowered Mary to face her bereavement more courageously and hopefully. “Twenty years later I stood at another daunting turning point in life. I knew the future would not be easy for my children or me, and there would probably be plenty of painful belly flops along the way. But I remember that summer at the pool.” Patience is a critical tool for coping when life deals us a harsh blow. Through patience a mother overcame fear and learned to dive. Through patience a grieving young widow learned to deal with her bereavement. “Little strokes fell great oaks,” observed Benjamin Franklin. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try and try again. This statement has bee heard by most children as they have struggled with a particularly difficult school assignment. The popularity of this saying stems from its inherent wisdom, that persistence is productive. One of the most amazing examples of this persistence principle comes from Sue Whiting of Woking, England. In 1964, when she was 17, she took a driving course in order to gain a driver’s license. She didn’t do well so she signed up for more driving instructions. During an early lesson she stopped suddenly and another car smashed into them. On another occasion, she recalled, “During a driving test I hit the brakes so hard that the examiner’s false teeth shot out of his mouth.” Finally, Sue Whiting found a female driving instructor with whom she studied for four years! Eventually—22 years after she began her driving lessons—Sue earned her driver’s license. To get it she persevered through more than 1,000 hours of lessons at a cost of $5,000. n E X C L U S I V E LY Y O U R S

When most people think about air quality, they’re typically thinking about outdoor pollution. However, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the air inside your home can be as polluted, or even more so, than the air outside. The concentrations of some indoor pollutants can be as much as 2-5 times higher than typical outdoor concentrations.

HOME AIR

QUALITY

AUGUST 2021

n n n

THE AIR INSIDE your home also contains pollutants from everyday activities like cooking, bathing and cleaning. A family of four can produce the equivalent of 22-30 pounds of moisture per day from normal activities, according to the Institute of Specialist Surveyors and Engineers, while household cleaners and products like paint, upholstery, carpeting and plastics can release chemicals containing volatile organic compounds. On average, Americans spend an estimated 90% of their time indoors, according to the EPA. All that time with minimal access to daylight and fresh air can take a toll on your health. These steps for managing indoor air quality can help you create a healthier home. Support your HVAC system Many homeowners assume their heating and cooling (HVAC) system is adequate to manage their home’s indoor air quality. Typically, these systems only circulate existing indoor air, so you’re missing out on the benefits of circulating fresher, cleaner air. What’s more, without regular servicing and frequent filter replacements, it’s easy for standard HVAC systems to fall short. This is especially true in older homes or in households where there’s

a high volume of allergens like dust or pet dander. Adding standalone or integrated devices can help give your HVAC system some extra support. Air purifiers can effectively help filter pollutants while ultraviolet lights purify the air and help control pollutants like bacteria, mold and mildew. Improve fresh air ventilation When it comes to upgrades that improve air quality, better fresh air ventilation is near the top of the list for many homeowners. Improved ventilation allows you to clear out stale, polluted indoor air and circulate fresh, outdoor air in your home. Polluted air tends to stagnate at the ceiling, so one effective and energy-efficient way to create natural ventilation is with skylights that open. Sometimes called venting or operable skylights, when you open skylights in combination with vertical windows, you create natural airflow that can help release indoor air pollutants and bring in fresh, clean air to keep your home healthy and pleasant. This concept is known as the chimney effect. Warm air naturally rises and escapes from open skylights while fresh air is drawn inside through the windows. This practice can

reduce your reliance on air conditioning, improving your home’s overall efficiency and keeping a lid on cooling costs. Today’s skylights can also be automated to open and close at regular intervals or extend and retract shades to block light as needed. Many models, including those from Velux, can even connect to a smartphone app to combine convenience with a soothing mood booster that supports health and wellness. Keep up with cleaning Textiles like carpeting, rugs and window treatments can harbor a great deal of dust and dander that reduces air quality. It’s important to regularly clean and air out these decorative fabrics and surfaces, especially thick carpet that is likely to host dust mites and bacteria. Remember air quality while you’re cleaning, too, and opt for cleaning products with fewer chemicals. When possible, use microfiber cloths and natural materials like white vinegar and soap flakes. With proper upgrades, adjustments and care, you can enjoy a home filled with fresh, healthy air and comfortable surroundings yearround. Learn more at whyskylights.com. n Family Features

An inviting window seat or cushioned bench runs along the length of the far wall of the dinette, offering an additional comfortable place to pause for a snack or conversation throughout the day. A formal dining room offers an additional elegant space in which to entertain guests. This room captures the ambience of a beautiful European country setting, with lovely, classic floral wallpaper and a suspended ceiling chandelier.

toned cherry wood floor adds to the sense of cheerful warmth in this room as well. The home’s first floor primary bedroom provides a luxurious haven in which to relax, restore and be pampered. A sparkling crystal chandelier supplements the natural light from two windows along one wall. Additional candle-style lights near the windows allow for gentle lighting near the bed. Pale golden wallpaper along this wall provides a subtle shimmer, while the palest gray tones of the carpet and additional walls are reminiscent of silver. Built-in recessed storage shelves and cupboards along one wall of the primary bedroom allow for the artful display of favorite art treasures, photographs or books. The opposite wall of the room features a tastefully curtained bay window and a peaceful view of nature beyond. An attached primary bathroom complements the luxury of the primary bedroom, with pristine light-hued golden beige walls and white vanities, cabinets and drawers.

OCONOMOWOC

FESTIVAL of theARTS n n n

FOLLOWING A YEAR OF CHALLENGES, people everywhere can derive inspiration from the examples of courage, perseverance, and determination seen throughout our Southeastern Wisconsin communities. While some individuals and organizations have recently stepped forward to nurture the overall wellbeing of communities here, others have offered longstanding bases of human talent, creative opportunity, and chances to brighten and enrich the lives of others. One of these outstanding organizations, the Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts (OFA), reached its 50th year of operation during 2020. While the navigation of this challenging year forced the OFA to cancel its August 2020 festival, the milestone anniversary nonetheless brought great honors to this well-loved event. On February 25, 2020, the Oconomowoc Chamber Orchestra conferred the Chatfield Award on the Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts. In the past, this award has been given only to individuals in the community, rather than organizations. The selection of OFA as the first organization to receive the award marked a special and significant occasion and an exceptional tribute to the OFA in its 50th year. August 18, 2020 marked an additional significant point in the celebration of the OFA’s 50th year. City of Oconomowoc Mayor Robert Magnus and the Oconomowoc Common

Council jointly proclaimed the third week of August, prior to the third weekend in August, “Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts Week.” As part of this public declaration of the city’s appreciation of the OFA, the mayor additionally “urge(d) all citizens to recognize the cultural value that the Festival has brought to the community over the last 50 years.” Finally, Mayor Magnus and the City Council presented to the OFA the Key to the City of Oconomowoc. No other person or organization has ever received this honor, according to Mayor Magnus’ research. 2020 President of the OFA Hollie Schick stated, “It has been my great honor and privilege to serve as the president of Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts in a most unusual year.” Originally founded in 1970, the Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts first operated out of Oconomowoc’s Zion Episcopal Church. The festival has enjoyed use of its current location at lovely Fowler Park, on the shore of Oconomowoc’s Fowler Lake, since 1974. Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts showcases the high-quality fine artwork of artists working in diverse media. With works in categories ranging from jewelry to ceramics,

photography to painting and more, the festival draws enthusiastic art patrons and families each season. Artists are granted awards in each media category, including a Best of Show Award, by two judges, with judging for the show completed by a panel of judges. Many of the festival’s 135 exhibit spaces are filled by longtime exhibitors. The Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts occurs annually on the third weekend in August. This year’s festival will be held August 21 and 22, 2021, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day, rain or shine, outdoors in Oconomowoc’s Fowler Park. Admission to the festival is free, and visitors can enjoy live music and dance performances on three stages, a children’s activity area, and refreshments from food vendors, in addition to browsing the quality selection of beautiful artwork. n

basement. The project included an outdoor area for entertaining, outdoor kitchen, spacious patio with a custom concrete fire pit, oversized ceiling fans, ample storage and landscaping complete with native plants around the perimeter. “By working on this project, we learned how important it is to take a holistic look at what clients are trying to accomplish with their renovations,” said Thomas Boyce, president of Boyce Design & Contracting.

“Often with outdoor living projects, designers and contractors look at the exterior of the home in isolation. We learned to look at how the interior and exterior of the home connect to each other to make sure the features and floor plan flow and work well together. By taking this approach, we were able to achieve a better finished product that is more functional and attractive for our clients.” Residential Landscape Design/ Outdoor Living $100,000-$250,000 A young, active family was looking to create a distinct outdoor living space with multiple entertainment spaces that tied in with the existing aesthetic and elevated the home amongst its neighbors. The low-maintenance backyard now features an outdoor dining area, sunken living room, entertainment area and additional storage space built with the home’s current architectural features while also maintaining a large enough yard for the kids and their friends to play. “The aesthetic of the outdoor areas was designed not only for function but also to reflect the interiors and keep the insideoutside living feeling continuous,” said Tim Johnson, owner and founder of Livit Site + Structure. “For example, the shiplap used on the fire table is the same shiplap featured inside the home. Likewise, the Douglas fir timbers used on the pergola are the same as the interior ceiling beams.” Residential Landscape Design/ Outdoor Living Over $250,000 A 4,000-square-foot project built at four different elevations, this client wanted to include a safe way to move from the upper level to the backyard without coming through the house, a structure for shade and protection from mosquitoes and a pool with features that reflected the home. Adding a covered screen room with individually controlled wall panels, see-through fireplace, fountain, pool with sheer descent waterfalls, recycled rock walls and staircase from the upper elevation while enclosing it all within a stone wall met those expectations. “A sound piece of advice for anyone building anything in the backyard: get a plan,” said Ken DePratt, owner of KD Poolscapes, Ltd. “Have it match your expectations list. Then, and only then, will you know if it matches your budget. We would recommend doing your research when taking on a pool project of any size. It’s hard to push a hole around once it’s dug.” n Family Features

GOD’S CORNER n n n

30

by Ger trude M. Puelicher

REGARDLESS OF ONE’S INTERPRETATION of the Bible, at all times but particularly in times of duress, there are Bible verses that bring comfort. One such verse is found in Psalm 121, “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help.” We have no need to move out of our chairs to do this. We need merely close our eyes for a second and let our thoughts lift themselves. You may hesitate to believe that is a possibility, but take my word for it. Just sit comfortably in your chair, close your eyes, and relax in those words, “I will lift mine eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help,” and almost immediately you will find yourself being flooded with peace—peace that really comes from within yourself, comforting serenity that can mean only one thing—God is on the field, God is taking over. Gradually you will have a sense of not needing to struggle with a problem or battle with a neighbor or compete with an associate. You will find yourself really resting in the security of God’s presence, and if you take time for it, you will actually be able to feel that Presence. We have grown so accustomed to pushing buttons and keys in this digital age that there are those who expect they can push a button and presto, chango, there is God-power or God-presence operating in their behalf.

What a blessing it is that no paternalistic government can legislate God for us. Anti-poverty programs may be legislated; federal aid may be legislated; even war may be legislated; yet all this legislation humanly planned may just as quickly and humanly be rescinded by legislation, but not God. God is completely immune from legislation of any kind, and just as “before Abraham was I am” so will it be unto eternity. The Creative Principle of the universe is untouchable by man or man-made laws simply because God is law. As a result, all unfoldment of God understanding is completely individual. No matter how regularly we attend church, no matter how devoted we may be to church projects, no matter how many books we read on metaphysics, the fact remains that no man can reach the Father within ourselves except ourselves. Jesus the Christ proved his own words, “The Father within me He doeth the works.” And as we reach the Father within us, we can live as Jesus did in that same God presence. It will govern our lives, showing us where to go and what to do if we do our part by taking time each day to practice it. Practicing the presence of God has its beginning in lifting our eyes unto the hills from whence cometh our help. n E X C L U S I V E LY Y O U R S
