BE STILL...and SEE Photography

Reflecting on who I am...what is important to me...and the gifts I offer the world, I have reorganized this PhotoSchmoozer blog into separate pages for your viewing. I am about so much...people - relationships - drums and rhythms and especially photography...and I realize that although separate, they are all so INTEGRATED into the Whole of who I am!! It's a very peaceful thought and I am thankful for the intuitive gift to see the connections and the relationships. Enjoy the journey through the blog...and WELCOME.
Contemplative photography is about being totally present and seeing exactly what is before you, without filters or judgment. It is about seeing with your heart.Doesn't everyone see what is before them? Not really. You may see a candle on a table. Do you also see the shadows it creates? Or the reflections that the light casts on it? Or it's underlying shape and form?

DRUMS, Rhythms and Relationships

Meet My Special Gracie!!

Working at home can sometimes feel lonely and disconnected.  Some say it is 'perfect', but for PhotoSchmoozer who likes to out and about and chatting people up, well, something is just not in synch.  On top of that today was totally rainy and dreary - no Vitamin D and lots of transitions and changes in the air.  Sitting here in the office, I looked around at memories and saw Gracie looking at me.  She is totally special.  Jon bought her for me when he first started Wesleyan in 1991!  He even packed her up and sent her to me for my birthday!  I always tell my guys that little things mean a lot to me and Gracie is a perfect example of the love and caring that has always come from our son!!  She helped the day go well by just having her sitting on my lap.  When I go to maryi's farm, her cat Stewie has befriended me and it is the same feeling (though I don't get itchy eyes from Gracie!!)  Stewie jumps right up on my lap and settles in and purrs like crazy.  Not being a cat lover, I wondered, but there is a special connection. Hmmmmm where is my camera when I go to the farm?  Watch for Stewie right here soon.  Until then, postings will be whatever is around in my immediate world.  That is the simplicity of life and it is 'just right'.
