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

Buddy Larry Geiger & the Woodbury Market

Today was Opening Day for the Woodbury,NJ Farm Market and being the person who believes that EVERYBODY .HELPS EVERYBODY, I went to support my buddy, Larry Geiger, executive director of Main Street Woodbury.  The tents were put up on the parking lot next to the Train Station restaurant.  We found Larry and met some really great vendors - including Lenny DeFiore from Dayna's Daiquiris - hey we are sharing vendors and Lenny is one of them.  Woodbury's market is on Friday and we are Saturday, so it is a win win for everyone.  We brought home luscious Jersey fresh strawberries - needed plenty of washing to get the sand out so we knew they were Jersey fresh - and the asparagus is there for the cutting!  Met Jessica too who has her own bee hive and sells eggs from her own stock of chickens. 

As we were stopping at the last farm stand, Haynicz's Orchardview Farm, we couldn't have a conversation to buy produce because the TRAIN was chugging along the tracks next to the market.  Then, to our surprise, it stopped right next to the market!!  Made me wonder if the engineer wanted to get some Jersey fresh produce for the ride!!!  All in all, the weather was pretty perfect for the market, and there was a steady stream of shoppers.  It will only get better as the weeks go along.  Congrats to everyone who is working on it!!
