I'm beginning to have a love/hate relationship with quotes and platitudes. I call these photos with quotes 'quotophos', or even shorter a 'pho-quo', and while I like the idea of merging words and photos, sometimes it gets a bit syrupy and gags me more than it inspires me. Nonetheless, I keep reading them, creating them, and posting them. After all, a part of me is a photographer and writer. I can only hope that my small, postcard like creations fall a little outside the box and serve my intention well to plant seeds of thoughts. Life's journey can be better enjoyed by sharing our experiences and learning from one another. (It sounds gooey to see that in print, but darn if it isn't true.) Learning is one of my most favorite things to do, but what I'm really good at is forgetting. What would it be like to remember what I learn? Sigh ....
I'm an artist, writer, photographer, private investigator and an activist in small ways.

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.
"The moment one gives close attention to anything,
even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious,
awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself."
