I'm an author, motivational speaker, and resiliency coach. I LOVE speaking to groups and knowing that I've made a difference. Please visit me at: www.clarahinton.com and at www.silentgrief.com . Please don't let the grief part scare you. I really am a person just like you, AND I have a crazy sense of humor. Laughter is part of my every day life!
A new addition is my blog....check in from time-to-time and see what's going on.....
I'm the mom of 11 kids. I *think* I'm still sane on most days. Then again, that part is often questionable! LOL
I grew up along the beach in New Jersey, and now I live in the mountains of PA! The mountains are beautiful, but once a mermaid, always a mermaid. I can't wait to find a sunny spot along the ocean to call "home."! The ocean calls out to me every day! :-)
I love photography and am having a great time making friends here at Flickr! I'm just a beginner with the most basic digital camera. I'm just beginning to learn how to use my Sony Cybershot, and each day I learn a little bit more. To date, I haven't used anything to touch up photos.....the colors and photography you see is "raw" for now. Every now and then, I crop a photo. Other than that, no touching up is done.
I glady accept any suggestions you can give me for stepping up my photography a notch. Thanks! I love comments, and I will be sure to comment your work!
Thanks for stopping by and getting to know me better!
PS Did I mention I'm Italian? :-)

"Sicilian Italiano is about the best friend i could have on flickr, a wonderful person, who cares so much, thank you, and God bless
you my dear friend"

"Maybe she wears her boots
When in the garden she shoots
Then she goes to the sea
To do photos even of a flea
She loves the ocean so blue
Where she searches for a clue
Or maybe an ice cream
To add in her photo stream
Then she shows kids and sons
Of them she have many tons
Wow! Here she smiles!
Oh! So much she shines!"

"From the moment I met Clara on Flickr, I knew she was going to be someone really special....And once again, my instinct was correct!.....
Clara's daily posts are not only beautiful but very inspirational for all of us.....Her words match her images perfectly....I am so glad that Clara posts her shots very late at night or early in the morning, because her stream is probably the second one I visit first thing in the mornings...I get a daily does of gorgeousness and motivation in one shot.....
As for Clara, she is such a very special, caring and beautiful person...One who reaches out to all of us without hesitation...How could she not be anything less....She has raised 11 kids of her own...That right there should tell you that she is one heck of a woman.....We have grown very close over the last few weeks, and she worries bout me like as if I am one of her own children...and for that I adore her even more.....
I could go on and on and on about you Clara, but what I would say, I am sure everyone knows already in this community.....Keep posting your beautiful shots and your inspirational words every day, you just don't have a clue how many people in one day you reach....Love you bunches and bunches.....Big hugsss for you.....Friends forever...and Im so looking forward to meeting you soon...xoxooxoxox.....Chris..."

"Inspiration comes in many ways..through a word, spoken...through a sound of laughter,and even through tears..but to a photographer, it is the beauty of a subject,drawn by the glorious light that surrounds it, that give us the greatest inspiration. As I looked through Sicilian Italiano's photostream, I was touched and indeed inspired, especially by her flowers, and the beauty of nature that she has captured. I believe that she is as great a photographer, as she seems to be an author and motivational speaker. With such a combination of rich talent and inspired elightenment into the lives of others, the world is surely better off for having her...and now we,at flickr,will be better enhanced in our love for our art, because another pure talent has arrived. I remain inspired, and look daily for more of her new postings!"
