Barbara Dean Aliaga
I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area during the 50’s and 60’s. I entered the convent in 1963 and delighted in teaching elementary school. I like to brag that my first class held 54-second-graders and I taught them to sing in 3-part harmony because I didn’t know that they couldn’t. I am always grateful for the foundation I received during the five years I remained in the convent.
I have a BA in English/Drama and have always been gifted with a positive spirit. I married in 1970 to a then returning Vietnam Medic Veteran who previously found himself part of “Operation Peter Pan” in the 60’s from Cuba. We fell in love at first sight and are enjoying life now on Camano Island. We enjoy our one son, our daughter-in-law, and our fine grandson.
I have worked as an executive director of The Harman Eye Clinic in Arlington, Washington and have been with the firm since 1989. I am proficient at running a company, but my joy comes from encouraging staff members to reach constantly for their potential -- to live happy lives!
In the 1980’s I published three technical books through International Self-Publish Press: “Start And Run A Profitable Home Typing Business,” “Keyboarding for Kids,” and “Learn to Type Fast”. During that time I also wrote a book about TMJ, called “TMJ, Breaking the Cycle of Pain,” and a little children’s story, “Michael And The Acorn Necklace.” Actually, “William Pardon Tankerfield the Third and A Google of Wishes” was first begun in the 1980s.
I am passionate about educating, exploring new thinking, painting and writing. Creativity is the air I enjoy so much that I can stay up all night lost in doing what I am doing right now.
I am available for readings and speaking engagements. Write to me through email -- Barbara at Artsali dot com

Aunt Barbara's Powerful Little Book of Comfort
By Barbara Dean Aliaga
Published: November 12, 2011.
From Chapter Five: The Power of Thoughts.
At this point it is helpful to talk about thoughts. Whatever-you-think is how things will be. Are you listening? If you think that you can't go on, you can NOT go on. If you think you will be all right, you will be all right... If you think you are not strong, you are not strong. ...Positive thoughts can turn everything around in a nanosecond.
