Love ..... and Fate

a reflection of love dances in the distance and plays with my heart
no punctuation and no commas 
can replace that which is in place
no move no chance no fate

New Work ... Nice Day

I feel like going into a rendition of Robert Frost's Poem The Road Not Taken .... "and being one traveler, long I stood And I looked Down One as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth;



Just in case you've never had the pleasure of reading this poem, I've included it for you.  


Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Weighing In on Photography .. Taking Pictures is a Privilege Not a Right.

Everything photography lately has left me a little agitated at the thought of such little concern about the practice of taking pictures of everything in site.

I had to think what was it about the plethora of photographers that was leaving me so disturbed.


Taking photographs is a privilege not a right.

I have been blessed perhaps to be in a number of places that to me were so sacred and the moment so profound that to stop and take a picture of it was just plain sacrilegious.

Perhaps there is the focal point, the grading of the light, the density, saturation and all that important stuff ... but what about the moment and the majesty.



I have walked through worlds that don't require photographs and the pictures I took are simply the ones in my own minds eye.  They are the greatest treasures.

One Direction








So I finally finished this piece which was more difficult than I thought it was going to be.  I was thinking that the piece would end up going in one direction and then it simply took a completely different one.

I was a little unhappy about it and then I realized that like life, art work moves in somewhat of a Heavenly Way.  

The essence of a art work is the most important attribute to me.  It indicates my own  awareness with the symbolic world and an attunement to it.  

I have always left the final analysis up to the purchaser unless otherwise requested because it is not just artwork for me but also for the observer.
