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

Good Bye....Shalom...See you Again Soon!!

The other night, I was sitting on the beach by the Delaware Bay in Lewes, DE simply watching the sunset and the people there to share it with me.  Two moms and their little guys had been to a playdate and were walking towards the car at the end of the evening.   All of a sudden, this is what I saw!  If I had been feeling peaceful prior to that with the beauty of God's gift of the sunset, this brought total joy and possibilities to my heart!  Another gift!!!   This interaction was definitely one of those "Teachable Moments" I am often referring to but in this case, no one had to tell them to 'be nice to your friend' or give your buddy a hug good-bye.  It just happened and I was blessed to be there to see it as you are blessed that I am sharing this beautiful spontaneous moment with you.  Sitting in synagogue a few days later for Rosh Hoshanah services, the rabbi asked what we might wish for in the coming year (5771) on many levels.  These two guys are a vision of my wish for everyone to be kind to one another and for there to be more peace and understanding in the world!  Happy New Year!!!
