In birthdays past,
I have posted lists of things
I wish to accomplish,
or something I hope
may be of interest to you as well.
This birthday, I simply ask to
stay grounded in reality.
My skill is capturing photos of family and connection memory
that will stay fresh and vital for years to come.

To witness the moment in photographs.
To record the beautiful grace of infancy.
To remember the elders, travelling to see their new young one.
To document time, place, and reality for the future.
To make good energy visible for the home.
To celebrate the two, becoming three.
To honor the spirit of family.
This is why.

It’s a beautiful use
of the best part of you,
and the process to enter
an extraordinary way of life.
Love what you’ve done!
These words usually accompany a new hairdo or living room design.
But this was the response from a father, freshly grieving the loss of his only son,
viewing what I created from the candid image he sent me.
These natural words really meant a lot to me on an emotional level,
knowing what this picture meant to him.
I love what I do
in creating something personal and special for those who are bereaved:
remembering and honoring their loved ones in contemplative art.
If this idea ‘sparks’ a feeling for the need
to see a treasured photo transformed into a memorial portrait,
I would love to help make it a reality.
May your loved one’s memory be a blessing.
captures a beautiful,
to inspire the week ahead.
This quote by Epicurus
on a friends’ Instagram post
‘speaks’ to me today.
Do not spoil
what you have
what you have not.
what you now have
was once among
you only hoped for.
After years of chasing this dream
through the ups and downs of life,
I feel blessed and grateful
every time I look through the lens
at someone who trusts me
to capture a beautiful, personal moment
of their private lives.
If I can be of service to you or yours,
I appreciate meeting and working with you.

Today’s On The Easel is an infant’s portrait in natural light.
Very small infants are absolutely lovely while they observe their world around them –
I love how they embody their innocence, essential energy, and innate purity.

For the scholars, teachers and parents staring a new year, one of my ‘oldies but goodies.’
‘Enjoy’ a cup of coffee in a different way to connect (and reconnect) with the calm inside.
This uses a visualization technique called imaginating, a great tool for managing and mellowing real life situations.
The key is to let your hearing, sense of touch, sense of smell and taste engage naturally as you ‘hold’ the warm cup in hand.
Try it, play with it (!) and apply it in different situations to see it work for you!

There is a generosity of spirit I continually refer to in dealing with others.
The best way I can describe it is intent, creation, and maintenance of a state of mind
that is flexible, open eyed, and playfully creative.
It trains itself to see abundance in the environment,
experiences simple, present-moment emotions of happiness,
maintains a grounded, connection with internal wisdom (quickly when needed)
and surrounds itself with reminders
to look upward and inward for its answers.
The mind attracts the thing it dwells upon.
