June 2020 - A Special Statement from Noreen Braman

PInk hair, don't care! Noreen Braman show off her recently dyed pink hair.


During this time of working from home, social distancing, mask-wearing and toilet paper scavenging, what are you doing to bring a smile to your face? Finding some humor in the midst of stressful circumstances is a time-honored way to help yourself manage.


I've been seeking out funny movies and the comedians I enjoy and only watching news reports long enough to be informed. On a Zoom call with my grandchildren, everyone brought hats, masks and costumes to the virtual party. And on my video page are two video done specifically for this time — one for the littlest laughers, and the other a Laughter Mindfulness Meditation for everyone!


I also decided this was the perfect time to put some pink haircolor in my hair — something I've been thinking about doing for a long time, but never quite had the nerve. What better time than now! The Love of My Life and I also took a risk and gave each other haircuts! I think we both survived that!


Here's hoping you are finding way to smile and laugh while attending to these very serious circumstances. I send you all thoughts of strength and healing.


Yours in love and laughter,



Noreen Braman
