a daily breath...

A thought du jour, my daily breath includes collected and conceived observations, questions of life, fortune cookie philosophies, reminders, messages of peace and simplicity, unsolicited advice, inspirations, quotes and words that got me thinking. They may get you thinking too . . .

Which way are you going?
What route will you follow?
Where will it take you?

Mondays are just young Fridays

The clock and the calendar move
forward incrementally, naturally
(as it should be) from a darker
winter we can’t leave behind to
something resembling spring.
In-between our seasons we take
whatever we can, where we are.
We have little choice.
A less-than-enthusiastic forecast
glares at me from a mobile device,
with greater chance of soakers
more than once or twice in the
week ahead as atmospheric rivers
come down to earth (a convenient
excuse for all it’s worth).
April showers still to come, as it
happens, as it is always done, we
keep moving forward step-by-step
mainly in spite of the weather.

of interest

your knowledge is
your currency

save up for what
you need or desire

there is interest
in your wisdom

I'm like a pencil;
sometimes sharp,
most days
other times
dull or
Still I write.

Come To Know

I have spent much of my life on the other side 
of the camera. My parents encouraged (or put 
up with) my interest in photography from a 
young age. I’ve studied all aspects of the craft 
from composition to darkroom techniques
(and I’m still learning), have worked with small, 
medium, and large format film, embraced digital, 
imaging, and have had the privilege of earning 
a living as a daily newspaper photographer.
I’ve covered news, sports, fashion, entertainment, 
politics, and everything in between, spending my 
time lugging around an over-equipped camera 
bag and never noticing the weight.
I’ve taken a camera with me everywhere, and 
still do to this day, and there is one thing I have 
come to know . . .
A camera will take you more places 
than you take it.
