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

Pay Attention to Your Words: They Have Meaning!!

Yesterday I was talking with Conni-Joi and sharing the fun I am having weaving the web of collaboration in Delaware and New Jersey.  I can begin to see how many strands are  integrating for the good of infants, toddlers, families and staff.  She was fascinated by my words and asked, "Have you ever looked at the Spider as your Power Animal?"  No I had not but now I have and WOW are the messages I discovered ever so meaningful!!  Listen...The spider is a Weaver and she is creating a delicate, magical tapestry!  Weaving is joining separate strands of fabric into an integrated pattern and Spider (ME!!) is the master weaver!  She has the ability to see our lives as a whole  and live in a more integrated way.  Her web is not an entanglement but a network of roads to travel.  Spider is associated with the spiral, the symbol of Universal energy.  Through her we realize that we are all connected to life and all we have is the infinite NOW!  Can you imagine this wonderful message started with sharing a few simple words with a friend!  Who could say that life is not  meaningful!!  Stop, be still and pay attention.  There are always messages and lessons to be learned!!!  PS Now we are approaching May and my countdown is at 147 days!!!
