I was recently in the company of an incredible woman. One who has traversed many more miles than I. And has seen much darker days. “We pray about such crap,” she says. “About our bad knees and bad backs. Safe travel. All crap. It has nothing to do with the heart. And then what do we say when something bad happens?” Yup. There it is. I have just come through a full on wrestling match with God during the past six months. Maybe  a little less. It started over […] Continue reading →

I have long been getting the vibe throughout the artistic community and more specifically the photography industry of great dissatisfaction. I sense it on Twitter, photography forums, in conversations with other artists and even within myself. I wrote this post several years ago when I was wildly thrashing around in the “comparison pit” myself. And I tend to wonder, why are we constantly tormented with thoughts that we aren’t good enough, we aren’t rockstar enough, […] Continue reading →
