Beautiful Clouds 101

Beautiful Clouds 101 – Photography by Mary Mikawoz – Click on image or link to see the bigger picture.

I was on my way back by plane from Churchill, Manitoba to the capital, Winnipeg, Manitoba. I was blessed to see an array of beautiful clouds. Every second we moved, we came across some more incredible formations. I love the blue colours surrounding the white fluffy, puffy clouds.

With my art, I am often in a zen-type of mood and with my photography, I feel as if I am inspired by God or the Universe to capture these moments in time.

Four to Score

Please like, comment and share.

Four to Score – Photography by Mary Mikawoz – Click on image or link to see the bigger picture.

These are gophers at Assiniboine Park enjoying their wide range of trenches in the fields and trees. I caught these gophers uniquely looking at me from various angles and locations “Four to Score” because if all 4 are female and have pups, there will be approximately be a score or twenty of them as the average number of fur babies are 5 per litter.

I hope you like the arrangement and appreciate that I took this photograph with my phone. sIt was difficult to capture all 4 of them in one photograph as they were always scurrying around.

Scrabble Board Prairies

Scrabble Board Prairies – Photography by Mary Mikawoz – Click on image or link to see the bigger picture.

This aerial photograph was taken just south of Winnipeg in the southern region of Manitoba in Canada across the border from North Dakota, USA.  

It reminds me very much of a scrabble board because of the square allotments of flat land. I really like the clouds in the skyline which are interesting and look as if they will be churning around with some extra snowstorms that will come over the Prairies.

Bellissimi Fiori – Photography by Mary Mikawoz – Click on image or link to see the bigger picture.

There is something elegant and beautiful about flowers no matter what stage of life they are at. These flowers were newly picked and together the triad forms a beautiful composition.

I love the contrast of the pink and red hues of the flowers agains the brown contrast of the table underneath. In my mind, they are just perfectly integrated.

With my art, I am often in a zen-type of mood and with my photography, I feel as if I am inspired by God or the Universe to capture these moments in time.

Book Review: Grand Theft Weight Loss

Book Review of Grand Theft Weight Loss

Book: “Grand Theft Weight Loss – How Stealing Scientific Discoveries Outside The Diet Industry Helps You Lose Weight,” Michael Alvear, BooksGoSocial, 2021

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

Henry Ford revolutionized the auto but he did so by borrowing from other industries. He looked at sewing machines and watch industries where they used interchangeable parts. He looked at continuous flow processes in flour and in canning industries. “He mimicked assembly line techniques from meat-packing plants and breweries.”

In a similar fashion, Michael Alvear has borrowed ideas, information and developments from other industries that have been around, in some cases for decades, and applied them to the diet industry.

First and foremost, Mr. Alvear says the very most important thing to determine is the right question to any problem. Once you have the question, you can look at the information and process it appropriately. For example, in the billion dollar industry of dieting, the only message seems to be a variety of diets but they all say, “eat less and move more.” If that worked, there would be one diet and it would work for all of us. We would all be skinny or fit but in actuality, it does not work.

Dieting is an illusion that says some foods are good and others are bad. Depending upon the particular diet, it gets confusing because they contradict each other from pro-protein to anti-carbohydrate and anti-fat diets. 

Research shows that the harder you try to lose weight, the harder the body tries to fight back. Further research shows that your metabolism can slow by 15% which explains the constant lose weight quickly and then gain it back even though you are sticking to a diet.

Michael Alvear uses a number of techniques from other industries to help a person lose weight. I know a lot of people with eating disorders around the issue of food intake so although a lot of the techniques are interesting, I wonder if they will work.

We can control what we put in our mouth but what our body does in the process of metabolizing it is another issue. We have genetics and we have the environment. How much does each serve to affect us?

There are bigger issues involved. Why can’t we just accept ourselves as we are and believe in HAES which stands for “Health at Every Size.” When will society just accept that people come in different heights, weights, shapes, colours and features. We would never expect a Chihuahua or Poodle to act and look like a Great Dane or a Husky and yet when it comes to people, we need to somehow fit some magical mould of what it means to be “perfect” including people going to extremes with getting surgeries and starving themselves to death.

I give this book a 4 out of 5 for stepping out of the diet industry box in an effort to bring in some other angles to look at.

Winnipeg Skyline

Winnipeg Skyline – Photography by Mary Mikawoz – Click on image or link to see the bigger picture.

I was on a plane recently and was able to sit on the correct side of the airplane to capture this picture of the Winnipeg Skyline during daylight hours. The buildings may not be as momentous as that found in the architectural skyline of Chicago, New York or Paris but it is significant as the downtown core has all the bigger buildings spreading out to the wonderful wide and flat expanse of the prairies. I like the flow of the river as it bends and curves through the city.

According to Wikipedia, “Winnipeg is the capital and largest city of the province of Manitoba in Canada. It is centred on the confluence of the Red and Assiniboine rivers, near the longitudinal centre of North America. As of 2021, Winnipeg had a city population of 749,607 and a metropolitan population of 834,678, making it the sixth-largest city, and eighth-largest metropolitan area in Canada.”

With my art, I am often in a zen-type of mood and with my photography, I feel as if I am inspired by God or the Universe to capture these moments in time.

Psychedelic Hometown

Psychedelic Hometown – Drawing and Digital Art by Mary Mikawoz – Click on image or link to see the bigger picture.

I started off drawing with India Ink and nib pens on paper. I was in a zen state of mood. The shapes, rhythms and swirls just flowed. I later took the drawing and put into the computer where I added colours.

The colours represent my hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada. Winnipeg is the closest city to the geographical centre of North America. From North to South and West to East, it is in the middle of the continent. It is the heartbeat of the land mass. There are three sets of representations – colours of the City of Winnipeg, the Fort Garry Horse Regiment of the Winnie the Bear fame and also the CFL Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

With my art, I am often in a zen-type of mood and with my photography, I feel as if I am inspired by God or the Universe to capture these moments in time.
