Stuff that catches my fancy and random, sorted thoughts from the inner scrambles of my mind.
What you may expect to find here are what I consider good taste and some of the best in photography, philosophy, humor, art, architecture, food, music, poetry, literature and dance. I hope you like some of the things I enjoy.
I like anything to do with good design such as interior design, architecture, photography, and art. I enjoy philosophy and psychology. I love to figure out what makes individuals tick. Music of most all types but particularly classical, world, pop, acoustic guitar is a big part of my life and add some dance to the music and my day is great! I like to write and occasionally I will write poetry and I really love to read it out loud and I even record it sometimes.
I'm a Myers-Briggs type ENFJ which means I love people and have a great interest in them.
I guess you could say I'm a humanities kind of person. :)

Body of a Dancer
A portrait of dancer Tim Persent.
Cinematic poem brings an ode to dancers and what they are able to do with their body, by showing what our eyes normally can’t see in real time.

“Claude Monet’s garden in Giverny, France, draws half a million visitors a year, but for the next several months, you won’t have to travel farther than the Bronx to get a taste of the artist’s green thumb. The New York Botanical Garden has recreated Monet’s horticultural work for an exhibit that includes photographs, videos, rare documents and two of the impressionist’s paintings …
‘When I walked in here, I thought, “Wow,” ’ says 9-year-old Vanessa Calvo, who visited with her family. ‘I was speechless.’
… Todd Forrest, head of horticulture at the New York Botanical Garden, says the goal is to capture the essence of Monet’s garden, ‘the incredible, overpowering color and the sort of spirit of natural beauty that infused and informed his paintings. And we hope that visitors to the whole exhibition will leave understanding that Monet would never have been the painter he became if he wasn’t the gardener he was.’”
