Unwonted Reflections, by Barry Cheskin, is an “out of the ordinary” set of haiku and other unwonted poems weaned on hardship and reflection.

First Edition Design POD & eBook Publishing

Boston, MA, USA — Barry Cheskin’ Unwonted Reflections is a book of quotes and poems are dedicated to those who have suffered through life’s hardships. It’s a collection of reflections and poems that have been in the works for close to a decade.

Unwonted Reflections

“As a life-long musician, with forty-four years’ experience, I always loved songwriting, but couldn’t find a wide audience. This book has been written with one goal: To reach people that could use a little bit of inspiration in their tough daily lives. It’s not meant to ignore the good life, but rather focuses on hope, especially for those struggling with their lives. It’s a book of empathy. Its purpose is to leave something for the world in order to make it just a slightly better place. I say that with courage because it comes across as rather arrogant, but I only say that because the bottom line is that I care about people. I’ve simply desired to share my thoughts with folks, hoping it can at least create one smile or tear.”

Barry Cheskin is a musician of forty-four years who also loves to write. He learned piano at the age of 3 and learned guitar at age 11. He grew up in Longmeadow, Massachusetts with a happy childhood, but as an adult has struggled with hardships, including two divorces and the death of both his parents at too young an age. He graduated from the Boston University College of Communications with a Bachelor of Science in 1990. He has always had pets, and currently has a Chihuahua he treats as his own daughter. Barry has spent fifteen years working in the insurance industry, but has spent years writing on the side as a hobby. Barry was born in 1968, a rather wild year for the earth to experience. He hopes to inspire many people with his book of quotes and poems.

When it comes to relationships, there exist four states: you’re either trying to get in one, out of one, maintain one, or get over one. Brooklynite, Zay Shero Harrison is stuck in the state of trying to get over one. Her three girlfriends hold down the other three.

AMERICAN SHERO is a satirical, next wave feminism, humor, politically incorrect, and an honest look at the current state of young love in America.

Semi-autobiographical, AMERICAN SHERO is author, Courtney Long’s first novel. His earlier work, Love Awaits was published by Bantam Books. Also a playwright in residence at La Garra Theatre in Silver Spring, MD, under the non de plume, Bless ji Jaja, he has directed and worked with such talents as Oscar nominated, Taraji P. Henson, Emmy recipient, Shemar Moore, and Grammy recipient, Erykah Badu.

The latter, come 2016, co-produced by Anthony Anderson of ABC’s primetime hit comedy, black’ish. Courtney is a graduate of Howard University’s College of Fine Arts and lives in Brooklyn, New York where he is a teaching artist at Bedford-Stuyvesant Restoration Plaza’s Youth Arts Academy.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is very pleased to announce that Ambro Louwe is the gallery’s featured artist and he will now be featured in the Artist Showcase Section of the gallery.

Jupiter, FL, USA (October 19, 2015) — Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is very pleased to announce that Ambro Louwe is the gallery’s featured artist and he will now be featured in the Artist Showcase Section of the gallery.

Ambro Louwe was born in the Netherlands. He explains his artistic journey, “Creating was not always enjoyable, as giving shape often leads along uncertainty and deep doubts. Stepping into the unknown is very demanding most of the time. It may also bring joy and happiness, a feeling of gratitude. Moreover, it gives amongst others, an understanding of, and admiration for the expressions by others. By giving shape and getting into a flow one heals and feels part of the world and connected to matter. It makes a person matter in this world.”

Recently, the game and action of getting into the flow and searching for harmony in colours and shapes bring objects to life. Concentration and following the process in balancing the different parts. A dialogue with inner words, colour, shape that bring about surprising works. His works are owned by city councils, hospitals, schools, hotels and private persons in Holland, America, Dubai, Switzerland, France, England and Germany.

On his website one can see the diversity of his artwork. (http://www.ambrolouwe.com)

Michigan OB-GYN Offers New Treatment for Vaginal Rejuvenation Without Surgery

Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA — Women experiencing vaginal problems such as vaginal laxity, incontinence or bladder control can free themselves of taking medicine each day or escape the necessity of invasive surgery with the new revolutionary ThermiVa™ procedure.

ThermiVa Logo

ThermiVa is a radio frequency device which delivers gentle heat to the vulvovaginal region. The device is safe, non-invasive (no cutting) so the patient has no down time or recovery.

Dr. Joseph Berenholz

Introduced to Michigan by the pioneering gynecologist Dr. Joseph Berenholz, a board certified Obstetrician/Gynecologist, ThermiVa, recently featured on The Doctors TV show, involves three 15-30 minute treatments over three months in the office without interruption from work, sexual relations or normal daily activities.

ThermiVa was first introduced in California four years ago to treat vaginal laxity. Women undergoing this procedure reported an end to urinary incontinence, overactive bladders, disappearance of camel toe from the vagina and improved orgasms.

“There is no anesthesia or pain involved at all,” says Dr. Berenholz. “Because of the amazing results produced by ThermiVa, surgery may well be a thing of the past for incontinence, vaginal laxity and for vaginal lubrication problems. The procedure is also a solution for women who cannot or will not take hormones to treat menopausal symptoms.”

ThermiVa Effectiveness:
– Reduces Sag
– Tightens the Vagina
– Reduces Accidents and Leakage
– Increases Sensitivity
– Reduces Dryness
– Improves Orgasms in Women

ThermiVa Procedure:
– Gentle Heat
– No Anesthesia
– Non-Surgical Procedure
– No Lasers / No Cutting / No Stitches
– Three 15-30 minute procedures (over three months)
– No Recovery Period
– Performed in the offices of Dr. Berenholz

The International Journal of Gynecology & Obstetrics indicates 76% females are at risk of developing vaginal laxity at some point of their life which can increase urinary incontinence and vaginal dryness, which affects half of all post-menopausal women.

Dr. Berenholz founded the Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation Institute of Michigan more than ten years ago after recognizing the need for women to obtain vaginal tightening and sculpting of the labia minor and majora in order to increase their sensation and feel less self-conscious about the appearance of their vulvar structures.

Dr. Berenholz was the first gynecologist in Michigan to undergo training to meet the needs of women suffering from vaginal relaxation and vulvar prolapse. Dr. Berenholz went to Beverly Hills to train with Dr. David Matlock of the famous Beverly Hills 90210 TV series. He spent some time in Beverly Hills and acquired the skills of using a diode laser for sculpting and repairing vaginal structures. The result was that his practice was able to offer these revolutionary services to empower women with knowledge, choice, alternatives, and vaginal rejuvenation. Dr. Berenholz introduced the treatment in Michigan after the procedure was featured on Oprah, Dr. Oz and The View.

To learn more about the ThermiVa™ treatment, please visit http://www.ThermiVaMichigan.com or http://www.DrBerenholz.com. For an appointment or free consultation call 888-593-8780 or 248-702-6200.

The Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation Institute of Michigan is located at 30445 Northwestern Hwy. Suite 140. Farmington Hills, MI 48334.

About Dr. Joseph Berenholz
Dr. Berenholz has been a doctor for more than 30 years and has performed cosmetic gynecologic surgery for more than 12 years. The goal of his practice is to empower women with the ability to solve issues regarding esthetics, vaginal laxity after childbirth, and other medical issues most doctors won’t even address. As a board certified Obstetrician/Gynecologist he has delivered thousands of healthy infants but his real passion has been urogynecologic and pelvic reconstructive surgery. He has performed 3,000 to 4,000 such surgeries during his career.
