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

Epic Adventures...Then and Now!!

It was a cold and icy day in January of 2001 when the two of us pulled out of our driveway with The Cocoon(our RV) and our old 87 Ford van.  We had finally come to the decision to give up the responsibility and head out for points west.  We had only two destinations that were set - first was Pensacola to visit cousins Ellen and Larry (yes, this picture is on the beach in Pensacola before the oil spills were anywhere close by).  Our second destination was San Antonio.  Jon had moved to Australia and he was coming to Texas for a week for training!!  Off we went - needed to stop in Asheville, NC to see my Deltec home - - check them out - it is still in my dream plans!!  Totally open and light and airy with a sense of freedom!! 
So you ask, why am I writing about this today?  The job is winding down (can't rustle up thelocal 'team' much anymore) and I reflect on what is next?!?  So I gaze longingly at RVs on the road and know that again PhotoSchmoozer and faithful companion will go out there to see what the world has to offer.  For now, the next adventure is to Cape May, NJ tomorrow for Barkbash - a weekend celebration of drumming!! and then home to Bus Stop for expanded bluegrass!  What a full day and what stories we will collect!!  My point is that adventures are everywhere and NOT just to unfamiliar and exotic places.  Everyday in everyway, life is an adventure.  Live it!!
