Let them be little . . .
“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.”

Evanesce . . .
Confabulatory . . .
"You are a confabulatory creature by nature. You are always explaining to yourself the motivations for your actions. Over time, these explanations become your idea of who you are and your place in the world. They are your Self.
You are a story you tell yourself."
Legato . . .
It was a cold sunny day at Colt State Park in Bristol, RI when I photographed the talented cellist Morgan Santos. The journey discovering the containment and exclusion of color was slow and drawn out.
“Invisible things are the only realities.”
Physical, spiritual and mental barriers are all part of the human condition but perhaps in a quiet moment, the essence of what it means to be truly human… shines through.
Chesterwood . . .
There’s something beautiful and mysterious about the human hand. This is the plaster mold of the hand of Daniel Chester French, one of the most prolific and acclaimed American sculptors of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, is best known for his design of the monumental statue of Abraham Lincoln in the Lincoln Memorial, Washington, DC.

Irish Ingenuity . . .
Every farmer has his own way of doing jobs and repairs around the farm. They may not be the ‘best’ way, but the levels of ingenuity among Irish farmers would put MacGyver to shame.

rebirth . . .
Tired and weary . . .
We’re tired of being cooped up, tired of being careful, tired of being scared with Covid19. If we want to go out, visit family, get back to work, eat out or travel again, there is only one thing we can do. Follow the health guidelines: Wear a mask, social distance, keep your social interactions outside, wash your hands and do everything else to stay safe. That’s how we take control.
