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

Everyone Celebrates FUN!!!

Everyone celebrates something!  What about YOU!?!?!  As PhotoSchmoozer travels out and about and talks to lots of people, I hear that some celebrate opening their eyes in the morning, getting out of bed and just being thankful for being alive!!  Others celebrate LIFE in a big way; the seasons; phases of the moon; family and on and on.  In spite of the war and destruction, we all need time to be mindful of what is special to each of us.  This week, my family and I went to celebrate Passover with our 87 year old uncle and his son (another story, another time!) I met a 94 year old woman in the grocery store yesterday who had her 'macaroni' and meatballs cooked and ready for a celebration with her children and grandchildren and maybe some great grandchildren too -15.  She will have everyone at her house for holildays until she can no longer do it!  What a role model.  I talked with her in my favorite produce section.  My mom always wondered WHY I talked to everyone.  I know WHY!?!  Do you?  If you don't engage, you might miss some of life's most wonderful stories and lessons.  Then, driving home from a massage yesterday, I had to pull over and capture this giant celebration!  Thanks to those who took the time to brighten up our world!!  It's never ending and I for one, celebrate having a LOVE OF PEOPLE and a JOY for relationships.
