If I have been of service, if I have glimpsed more of the nature and essence of ultimate good, if I am inspired to reach wider horizons of thought and action, if I am at peace with myself, it has been a successful day.

A little bit about me?  Honestly, I'm terrible at these things.  Without fail, I tell people waaayyyyy more than they need (or want) to know about me.  I think I'll take a little advice from my Dad here and approach this task with the K.I.S.S. method.  Keep It Simple Stupid!  

Sagittarius.  Faithful christian with a mouth like a sailor (God forgive me).  Classic rock junkie.  Deep thinker, even deeper feeler (my biggest fault, but a pretty good one if you ask me).  The fewer choices, the better (Subway stresses me out!).  If it's old, I love it.  

A few of my favorites:  Tom Petty, Volkswagens, tattoos, deep conversations, intimate connections.

And some least favorites:  Cold weather, unidentified bad smells, dive-bombing birds, listening to someone eat cereal.

All-in-all I practice my photography like I practice my life...by doing my best to recognize that all is beautiful and deserving of love.  


So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.
When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.
When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.
