Still here, it’s a great life….. Bear

It’s been so long since I have posted here. This is an incredible morning this past weekend at Kalaupapa. Molokai is such an amazingly beautiful island, and it keeps showing me this again and again. More posts to follow.

Beautiful healing moments

I’m off tomorrow for knee replacement surgery. Most everything caught up in my life. Hui seems to be gracefully moving along with the best staff we have had. The puppies, all four of them spend the days lingering and hanging out on my porch at my feet. They are ten weeks old yesterday, and for […]

Fullness of this moment

In the buzz of this morning I’m reminded to take it all in feel it fully be with the life around and in me be again with the fullness insight arises I linger in the fullness of this moment and then and then let it go.

At the time of this assignment, I knew they would choose this photo. For most of that summer,  Bronwyn slept in the garden to protect her plants from […]

This image is so personal to him and symbolizes his spiritual path and, in fact his life. The carp’s struggle through the rapids, tells of man’s quest for enlightenment […]

Resurrecting old friends

Here we sit again on the porch, hopefully quenched, at least full from a week of wonderful sharing, encouraging and witnessing our photographic process.  Like a gardener watching his plants, I feel this year will be a bumper crop ready to be harvested in each of your lives.   This week is about fertilizer – […]
