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

Polar Bear Plunge...Can You Imagine?!?!?

Close your eyes friends and imagine have put on your bathing suit, possibly some winter head gear, taken some towels and sweats and headed down to the beach in Brigantine, NJ   Hey we learned more about Brigantine yesterday as we showed up at the 10th street south beach and realized the plunge was NOT there?!? What were we to do but take a ride further along the island and see if our hunch of south and then north was right?  You bet!    Lucky for us we have hunches and even luckier for us that there was a guy walking along who could affirm our hunch and offer us a geography lesson of Brigantine!!  How did your imagination work?  Was it cold?  Was the water as warm as your bathtub? (when the hot water heater did not work?)  Did you bring enough towels or were you simply among the people from the other planet who chose to wear their heavy winter coats, boots and gloves?  Either way - wasn't it fun?  Will we go back again?!?  Just talked to my sister Debbie and she said they had ONE THOUSAND PLOAR BEAR PLUNGERS in Atlantic City.  Hmmmmmmmmmmm.
