Photography is about seeing and finding beauty in the ordinary.
Patience.. Balance... Joy
Above all - let a Labrador Retriever own you...
The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience."

The goals of life is not to possess power, but radiate -- Henri Milar
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. ~ Irish verse
As Kurt Vonnegut said, “Goodbye is the emptiest yet fullest of all human messages.” So maybe it’s best to forget that word. Perhaps gratitude is a better emotion.
Jack: Why love, if losing hurts so much? I have no answers anymore: only the life I have lived. Twice in that life I've been given the choice: as a boy and as a man. The boy chose safety, the man chooses suffering. The pain now is part of the happiness then. That's the deal.
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind always be at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rain fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
- an Irish Prayer
If a cluttered desk is a sign of cluttered mind, of what then is an empty desk a sign of? Albert Einstein
You that seek what life is in death,
Now find it air that once was breath.
New names unknown, old names gone:
Till time end bodies, but souls none.
Reader! then make time, while you be,
But steps to your eternity.
