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

Saturday, November 10, 2012 careful what you ask for!!

 Be careful what you ask for!!  When I left Pitman/Philadelphia airport on Saturday morning, October 20, I knew I was off on an adventure BUT what I didn't really learn was that WHAT YOU ASK FOR IS NOT ALWAYS EXACTLY WHAT YOU GET.  This picture is not clear, but it is a casino in Detroit, MI at 6 am last Friday.  See...I was to fly home - flight got cancelled - then I was to travel Amtrak...flight got Trailways and Greyhound were another option besides driving from Iowa on my own for days and days!!  We were to arrive in Chicago to get a bus to Pittsburgh and then Philadelphia - arrived an hour late and found us rerouted through Detroit, Youngstown, Cleveland, and then Pittsburgh and Philadelphia - arriving only about 5 hours after scheduled.  GRATITUDE:  I had a house to come home to...

In Iowa City at the Trailways station, I met Salif and his girlfriend, Miriam.  They were my travel companions throughout the bus adventures and it was nice to have someone watching out for me!!  They still had a journey home to Bronx after Philadelphia.  Wishing them luck and thanks!!
