Okay, think now…what does a puzzle make you do? It makes you think. It’s brain food or brain therapy. Well I went to an art exhibit at the Long Island Children’s Museum, and on display was my good friend, Puzzle Artist Alli Berman’s art work, that is being used in schools and in many countries around the world. Folks, Life is a wonderful puzzle, we are always trying to figure out, why we love one person over another, how to make more money, how to fix something, how to stop something…so many questions, so little time but the beauty is with both this art and life is that YOU CREATE YOUR OWN ANSWERS! Yes, the ultimate adventure to figure out how to make your own life a wonderful journey. So get cracking and start solving your life puzzle!

Dear Alli,

Although I was unable to attend yesterday’s trip to the LIC’s Museum, I was met with rave reviews of your presentation when I entered JASA this morning, and throughout the day. Everyone was impressed by your art work, and warmed and delighted by you and your program. One of my seniors even told me that you inspired her to resume art projects that she had left unfinished after many years. I appreciate and applaud your efforts and I thank you for welcoming us to your exhibit. I’m so glad that it worked out wonderfully for all.

With appreciation, Bonni L. Goetz, JASA Assistant Project Director

[During the PuzzleArt workshop] I truly did not understand… where you asked us how we could be creative in our daily life… That evening when I was taking my shower, everything clicked. All of a sudden I wasn’t in my bathroom, but rather on a tropical island standing under a waterfall. Now I understood what you were trying to teach us. I thank you for that moment and hopefully moments like it in the future.

A 71-year-old woman in a nursing home put one of Berman’s puzzles together, then wrote: ‘So much utter beauty in so small a place. My good eye caught a most graceful bird who seemed to be eyeing his prey. I felt such utter joy seeing it.’
