The Inner Path of Photography

We yearn for the taste of the sacred…and through our cameras discover it, the world, and ourselves.

“Honor Your Heart”


The cookies are gone, espresso savored
Warm feelings from an evening with friends

Playful posting of photos, just taking a break, and then

Tender memories of a passionate time.

A different photo.

A man who could capture
layers of emotion through a simple cup and saucer.

Images and coffee
Friendship and love

A rich life.

Hello, Kindred Spirits,

Honor Your Heart.

If you are feeling sadness about things in the past today,
and also have great hope and love for the future,
I’m with you. 

Life is precious, amazing, exhausting, disappointing…
and a Miracle. 

Tomorrow we’ll step forward into a new year.
Today I welcome you to create your dreams,
and to also honor your losses. 

My heart is with you.


For You: “This is a Wonderful Day”     

I posted “This is a Wonderful Day” and its image of Spring beauty in May of 2020, when we were still in co-vid semi-lock-down in Hudson, NY – my temporary home where I found myself by good fortune and the generosity of friends. The feelings and essence of this writing continue.      

May you feel the love and inspiration I wish for you.
