I’m not questioning if They should be deported, I’m questioning if you’re a Christian

By: | Posted in: Uncategorized | Monday, May 15, 2017 - 2:49pm

Over the past week, I’ve seen 2 posts from in-your-face Christians on my Facebook feed boasting about how successful ICE has been at rounding up illegals. I get it, you want undocumented people out of your country. I won’t make any case in opposition to that and, for purposes of this conversation, I’ll go so […]

ThEli at Rest (Jan ’16)

By: | Posted in: Photography Projects | Friday, Jan 8, 2016 - 12:34am

I loaf and invite my soul. I lean and loaf at my ease observing a spear of summer grass. …or, in my and ThEli’s case, a beam of winter sunlight.

Pre-flight Turbulence

By: | Posted in: Be Resource / Be Source | Wednesday, Dec 2, 2015 - 7:48pm

I remain happily lost in the mystery of living… I spent last night at the Sheraton JFK so that i could catch a 6:55 AM flight to Mexico. A 9-day ‘writing retreat’ that will certainly result in a fair bit of writing, but, if we’re being honest, is really my biannual excuse to sit in […]

This 1-day project was unplanned and emerged as a way to fill the space left open by my unexpectedly needing to rush off of a flight after having already boarded. The story is here: Pre-flight Turbulence.

The Mac & Cheese Kid: How Privilege Plays Out

By: | Posted in: Be Expertise / Be Listening | Wednesday, Oct 7, 2015 - 3:05pm

(adult language warning if that sort of thing bothers you) This scene goes on for 9 minutes. What are the first words that come to mind about his behavior? Now indulge me for a short bit here: Watch all of it and imagine he’s an African-American or Arab 19-year old.  Now what words come to mind […]

The Facebook Privacy meme and other nonsense you distract yourself with…

By: | Posted in: Be Resource / Be Source | Tuesday, Sep 29, 2015 - 3:42pm

Now it’s official! It has been whispered by the wise for millennia. Life has just released the entry price: Courage and Commitment are the price to keep the state of your mind set to “free”. If you paste this message on your Facebook page, it will do nothing. If you embody it, it’s the proverbial […]

Another Hungry Eye

By: | Posted in: Photography Projects | Wednesday, Feb 11, 2015 - 5:34pm

Despite being able to fake it enough to get the degrees, I’ve always been an experiential learner and disinclined to engage in research and text-based learning. When I took up photography, my approach to it was to just go shoot. Recently, I met John T. Hill, former professor at Yale and author of numerous books […]

A Wandering Life

By: | Posted in: Photography Projects | Wednesday, Feb 11, 2015 - 5:34pm

Wandering is instinctual for me. If life circumstances permitted it, I would spend the bulk of the day walking big cities and rural villages – and the occasional beach. It’s an expression of the gypsy/nomad aspect that is so central to who I Be. Wandering through the streets of NYC or New Haven – the […]

Mystical Oases

By: | Posted in: Photography Projects | Wednesday, Feb 11, 2015 - 5:33pm

Oases are quite welcome during the long days of wandering I engage in. But there are rules. Of course, the coffee or tea or food that is offered should be of quality – carelessness as a host is unforgivable. Simple is more desirable than elaborate, fresh more than fast. But even more critical is the […]
