Clash of two worlds I watched this homeless man take a seat at the head of the table at Times Square and he just sat there watching the world go by. Joan Osborne’s song ‘One of us’ came to mind as I watched the world go by with him. ~ What if God was one… Continue reading Was it Black Jesus at Times Square?
"I am just a grain of sand" During my visit in Manhattan, New York I'm asking random unsuspecting people big questions about themselves and society. From the homeless, business people, lawyers, producers and this guy. A picture is worth a thousand words. I’m sitting in the foyer of the hotel and couldn’t help but take… Continue reading I AM JUST A GRAIN OF SAND
Plan like you'll live forever, live like it's your last breath. It may sound morbid but I've always been fascinated by funerals, even taking photos with my 35mm Camera back in the seventies at a family burial. I'm surprised no one stopped me and thought it may have been distasteful, maybe they saw the value… Continue reading There’s no escaping, so don’t waste a minute.
Racing my dog this morning means two different things to him and I. I was trying to get him to stay in his lane and he was just having fun running all over the place.

WHAT DO YOU WANT? A question I seem to be asking more and more people that are trapped in life’s drama. We’re often fighting battles that have little to do with what we actually want out of life. We’re fighting people, even in our heads believing they are stopping us from achieving what we want.… Continue reading WHAT DO YOU WANT?
Unexpected Lesson on my morning dog walk. I decided to go a different way and a crazy shabby barefoot guy was yelling at me in the distance. Typical me, I go and find out what’s he yelling about. He asks me if he can retrieve his shoes from the Good Sammy bin because he can’t… Continue reading We’re all a bit crazy – Beauty of being human
Be a walking contradiction. Life is not absolute. It’s filled with contradictions. It’s easy to judge someone when power is unchallenged. When a king is confronted by a supposed mad man from the desert for his adulterous affair, the king cuts his head off. (The king just gets rid of the voice) When an adulterous… Continue reading Be a walking contradiction
