Ideas Of The Future

Over the years I have lived as a photographer, I have realized that being a creative artist has, over time, has enabled me to be a creative ‘see-er’, too!

I treasure and cultivate my ability to see things differently by actively listening, day-dreaming, and using counterintuitive ideas to access an ability to look at your questions in a fresh new way.

This discernment allows me to:
‘connect the dots’,
find new ideas / markets for your niche,
see new directions,
enhance and improve offerings,
and refine messages to reflect more accuracy.

It’s a great feeling when I hear:
“That’s a very good idea!”
“I haven’t thought about it but that’s a good idea!”
“I love this!!! I’m totally going to share it with my group tomorrow!”

Reach out here or via my website Contact Page, and I am happy to ‘take a look’ at a topic of interest for your business – or for you.

I feel that this way of envisioning will bring you an original idea or concept you have never heard before. And it’s my desire that it will benefit your life immensely!

Tend Your Chicks

Chickens come home to roost, and so do your thoughts. Be careful what sort of thoughts you send out.

The thoughts you send out to others will have a far greater impact upon you than upon them.

Unlike a material possession, when you release a thought or give it to someone else, it also stays with you.

It may remain buried in your subconscious long after your conscious mind has forgotten about it.

Like chickens that return to the coop at night, such thoughts may flash into your consciousness when you least expect them.

When your thoughts are positive, you never have to worry about the damage you may do to yourself through negative thinking.

Cheerful, productive, happy thoughts that are buried in your subconscious bring positive results when they recur, and by their presence they encourage the maintenance of a positive attitude in all that you do.

This is a thought-energy selection from my favorite, Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.


I would love to help create and maintain positive energy in the home through intimate family, personal and professional photography. Contact me to discuss creating that artwork at https://dorothyperry.com/contact/. See you there!

Wiser

It started innocently enough: Someone has liked your post!

When I clicked the link,

the address was missing one letter:

Proofreader Me, thinking it was a mistake,

typed what I thought was the corrected address.

My laptop exploded with flashing blue screens

telling me that it was locked now,

and only their ‘expert’ could help me retrieve my data again.

Needless to say, after coloring the air blue with a few choice phrases,

(and an apology to Artist for them!)

I went about reclaiming my laptop, from where I’m posting!

After I’d had time to think,

it made me a little sad.

I always like to give the person

the benefit of the doubt,

and this person may not know

his site had been corrupted.

But I also would not be surprised

if he was part of the spidery web

of wanna-be hackers

wasting their God-given gifts in this way.

But if this causes one reader

to be alert for this image, this WP address,

and this ‘trick’, then it is worth it.

All the best to all of us

who strive for honest, connected communication.

I Love What I Do

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.

Words From Friends

Sometimes, someone

captures a beautiful,

evocative idea

to inspire the week ahead.

This quote by Epicurus

on a friends’ Instagram post

‘speaks’ to me today.


Do not spoil

what you have

by desiring

what you have not.

Remember that

what you now have

was once among

the things

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.

On the Easel

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.

or as a gift for a treasured client, contact me so we can talk about how to make yours special.

I’d love to help see you surrounded by beautiful, meaningful personal art of the people that matter in the places that are ‘home’ to you.
