What is D Day to us? My mom’s is coming up on June 23. Here’s a video tribute we made.

The days leading up to my mom's transition, I played Enya's Shepherd Moons CD on repeat for my mom. When my dad was transitioning, I played Steely Dan for him. Jeffrey Fadden and Lori Ingwerson helped me to make this tribute video for my mom, which we played at her viewing, the night that Michael Jackson died, June 25, 2009.

My art prints are now online. Portion of proceeds go to Ashinaga, educational and emotional support for orphans worldwide.

I'm excited to share that my art prints are now available online at http://www.LisaASnyder.com. Buy a print in June (there's half a month left!) and * I WILL DONATE a portion of the proceeds to the Ashinaga Non-Profit who provides educational and emotional support for orphans worldwide*. This includes those effected by the tsunami in Japan this year.
