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

Synchronicities and My Sister!!

Meet my sister Lisa Hope.  We've shared a LOT of years of life's adventures and together we love to pay attention to the synchronicities that come into our lives every day.  We call one another and say, "You have to listen to this!"  The other day, she was here and talked about the meeting of the Executive Directors of the Urban Land Institute - she heads the one in Bethesda, MD.  They are all coming to DC to meet, greet and play!  One of the decisions for each person to share a photo that expresses his/her essence.  What to do??  The other night I took a ghoulish picture of her at a music happening - the CD release party for Blank Pages!  We talked about whether that was her essence.  Then this morning, realizing that today is her birthday, I looked back on a set of photos I had scanned for her 50th birthday project.  I collected a few favorites and decided that this would be a Birthday Wish - a celebration - and an expression of her essence!!
       HAPPY BIRTHDAY SISTER!!  You deserve special days and the years that go with them.
