Labor(ing) Day

                      I posted this blogpost early this morning, on Ocean Lovers Collective’s website. It is a look at the Alchemy of Change. It has been a darned busy weekend. Work in the office on Art, Writing, Photography. Designing a new optical system for my 5DM2Continue Reading

The Beauty of Story

I stepped out of a marriage of over 22 years into an odd situation at the age of 44. Having been married for most of my adult life, and walked a less than conventional path, the roadmap of memories and tales was rather, um, let’s say: convoluted. I had done a lot of things whichContinue Reading

Pick a Lane

  In life and in our Western Cultural assessment of what will inevitably amount to a rather short term existence on this blue ball, we are constantly encouraged by the status quo, to “pick a lane” for ourselves.

Non Artistic Interpretation

It was only a year or two ago, when I realized that I am an “artist”. At a very young age I painted. My Father and Uncle were both painters. So as any child would, I simply took for granted that painting and drawing were normal endeavors. At 12 I had learned Photography and studiedContinue Reading
