The camera is a sketchbook…

For me, the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity.

More wildness…

You need more wildness in your life.

Max Gladstone

Take this however you want, but, really, who can argue with it?

Often nature is just what the doctor ordered…

This short spoof about prescription-strength nature has been going around and if you haven’t seen it yet, why not take a moment to watch this!

It is sure to make you smile…

 

 

It matters that you care…

Hokusai Says

…He says it doesn’t matter if you draw,
or write books. It doesn’t matter
if you saw wood, or catch fish.
It doesn’t matter if you sit at home
and stare at the ants on your veranda
or the shadows of the trees
and grasses in your garden.
It matters that you care.
It matters that you feel.
It matters that you notice.
It matters that life lives through you.
Contentment is life living through you.
Joy is life living through you.
Satisfaction and strength
is life living through you.
He says don’t be afraid.
Don’t be afraid.
Love, feel, let life take you by the hand.
Let life live through you.
 Roger Keyes

Til the last frame of my life…

The butterfly is a flying flower,
The flower a tethered butterfly.

I want to fly like a Butterfly around this beautiful world, till the last frame of my life and the last click of my heart.
