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

Performers and the Audience!!

Can you tell what a glorious day it was in West Cape May??  From most perspectives, it was just that - from the HEAT perspective, the term would be 'schvitizing'!!  Just look at the enthusiasm on the faces of my fellow drummers and percussion musicians to know how we all felt!  Was it for the people or for the performers?  I would have to say both without a doubt!  We marched down Broadway to get to the Park, then into the park and to the performance area.  The looks on people's faces as we passed was priceless and there was eager anticipation from those who filled all of the chairs to be in the audience.  Wish you had been there?  You can go next year - always the first weekend in June.  If not, find a group, pick up a drum and find out how you can get in rhythm - with yourself, with others and with life!!  It's a simple step to take for feeling good  - and no experience necessary!!
I truly believe that when it comes to drumming, just about everyone wants to bring out the playful child within - some never lose it, some lost it when they start into the public school system and some strive to regain and capture the feelings as they move into the different way of thinking and being that comes with middle age and beyond!!  No matter...drumming can be one way to express yourself - or dancing - or singing - or - the important thing is to get in touch with who you are and live what makes your heart sing!!
