Tatamagouche Experience

This was my second year as a facilitator along with Margot and Frith. We were part of another fantastic group and it was a privilege to be a part of it. The more events I get involved with, the more I want to get involved with.
In 2006 we are offering 2 events at Tatamagouche, a 4 day retreat Feb 1-5 th,
Still. Life. A Photographic Retreat
and the the fall weekend event October 20 - 22,
Photography for the Artist in Us

Hallelujah Chorus

Driving Isabelle & her friend home from a church activity and after I just finished a spiritual guidance session, The girls start singing Hallllllllllllllllelujah! Hallllllllllllllllelujah!Hallelujah!Hallelujah!Hallelujah!...It went from a Handel-like Hallelujah chorus to more of a Leonard Cohen-ish Hallelujah,Hallelujah,Halleluuuuuuuuuuuja....

Seemed like a suitable ending to an enlighting evening.

Images Revisited, Seeing Anew

The day before a weekend event in Tatamagouche (more on that fantastic experience in future posts), I sifted through images I made throughout this year to select some to print and display at the event. This was the 1st time I had a real opportunity to revisit the work and see it as an overall body of work, it has motivated me to build on it and take it further, both in printing, and displaying this work and directing my future work. More images will follow in the coming days.

Did you miss me?

Ok, I know 5 months is a little slow when it comes to keeping this blog up to date.

I will try to be a better blogger.

Rivers and Tides

I recently was made aware of the work of Andy Goldsworthy and the documentary about his art and creative process. (thanks Margot) I came across the DVD at my local video store and had to rent it. I am not going to turn this into a movie review Blog, but Wow!, this is a beautifully filmed (great soundtrack also) look at at an amazing artist's work and process. I highly recommend it.

The Mysterious

Albert Einstein

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.

I recently had my Gallbladder removed. It slowed me down some, but now I feel my energy coming back. More photos coming soon!

Don't blow out this candle

March 19th marked the 2nd anniversary of the start of the war in Iraq.
Unlike a birthday candle, may the light of hope never be extinguished.

the prayer of St. Francis:
Make me an instrument of Peace
Where there is hatred, let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
Where there is sadness, joy.

Mr. T

Driving home tonight from a supper out, the kids are in the backseat getting a little loud, but it's a happy, giggling, getting along together kind of loud. We manage to get them to quiet down a bit and they begin to look out the window.

A couple of minutes later, Ben says " Am I allowed to make a wish on a star?" We say "Yes, of course, you don't need to ask permission for that."

"Well," he says "I wish my name had a ' T ' in it"
