Ocotillo Sunset

Ocotillo Sunset
iPhone Inspiration: Catalina Foothills

“I've learned that people will forget what you said, 
people will forget what you did, 
but people will never forget how you made them feel.” 

Sitting here this morning trying to get the words to flow and the images to gel. Listening to some melancholic yet mellow banjo music featuring Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, "Love Has Come for You".  Just trying to drown out the noise in my head which despite all I see doesn't want to let me go and give me peace. I know its time to turn up the volume on all things which give me pleasure and engage me back into a real and wonderful life. Got a lot of living to do yet.

Found this bit of poetical inspiration from one of my favorites, Maya Angelou. The sentiment of the quote is precisely what my photography has been about. Cant speak to as you view my images, but if the image could, I would want it to speak volumes and make you feel something even inspire.

God knows that I am off the charts when it comes to love, warmth, and caring. It was not, however, my own doing; while Romulus and Remus were raised by wolves, I was raised by a mother and two sisters who shared their incredible love and affection with me. In many ways, I speak their language and I share that with both the men and women I meet. This was a taught behavior and am so glad they shared with me the language that most men do not speak. It's added an incredible dimension which appears in my art and prose.

If you have a chance today go ahead and listen to the banjo music, get out, and let yourself feel something else than the reality of responsibility. Greet someone, meet someone. Get your life back.


  1. I don't comment often but I do enjoy your incredibly beautiful photography and the gentleness of your writing.

      You live in a beautiful place and I am sure you must experience the same feelings too.
