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

Drumming with Auggie Doggie: Brigantine, NJ

Since I first became enchanted with hand drumming and the Healing Power of the Drum(Robert Friedman), my wish has been to drum on the beach!!  On 7/7 my wish came true and honestly, folks, it lived up to all of my expectations!  I connected with Auggie Doggie a few months back, met him at the BarkBash in West Cape May last month and knew he would be facilitating drum circles soon on the beach in Brigantine, NJ.  My friend, Karen, decided to live the adventure with me and we took off 'down the shore'.  We were welcomed to Atlantic City by the massive array of casinos and 5 windmills generating electricity.  The night was hazy and the skyline was not clear, but not at all daunted, we arrived.  There was an ocean breeze, very few green head flies biting, and before the night was over, there were more than 25 of us totally engrossed in one another and the drumming.  Auggie Doggie is a wonderful facilitator with a quiet energy.  He has a special knack to make everyone feel welcome.  Again met up with Julie (she will be at HealthRhythms in September) and found some new friends.  Next week, Mimi and Bernadette will join us and then...  It's all about the synchronicities and they abound!!  Ask and you shall receive and that I did!!  Keep the rhythm in your heart - listen to your heartbeat!!
