I have a few goals here. I have been taking pictures for forever, and playing with reality for longer n that. I photograph and videieio events, retreats, and whatever interests me, generally posting it up and offering it as a gift. Capturing life in progress, along with the colors, spirit and "feel;"  sharing perspectives other than what we may be used to is part of what I do.

Chasing God's tale, is just my way of interacting with reality, and hopefully, sharing some beauty and or heart/thought provocative imagery with all of "you." We tend to look at "things" in set ways, filtered by our beliefs. I hope to get us all to look at things in different ways, and to take pause, be alive. Reducing all and everything to dollar values and marketing myself, has not been a priority for me, and I would love to welcome folks to be a partner and a part of what I do as a community artist, and adventuring fool.

My camera is wearing out, the hard drives are full, the computer is making noises, and there are costs to keep it all cobbled together and going and to be able to do quality work. I would also like to print out some of my "stuff" starting with some of the images in the above video, and get them hanging on walls in public places. There are links to more of my pictures, video's, and writing at the bottom of this bit.

If you have appreciated any of the photos or video's I have posted  in various places over the years, and would like to help support keeping me going with it, I would love to replace my camera and lens ($2000) which have become noticeably fuzzy lately (especially for video) get some more hard drives ($400-$600) and get some things printed/framed ($1000) and out in the world. Replacing the computer ($3k) would be amazing too..... I wonder how many of you have used one of my pic's for a "profile" picture, or shared em around?

If folks feel drawn to send some $ my way, I am eternally grateful, and it's all just love. Yes, the world is filled with hungry mouths, and environmental catastrophe, AND, we still need art and beauty and dreamers. Too few of us seem to believe in "impossible" things, and the world never seems to change by committee. Perhaps we can change this world, one heart at a time, and perhaps I am rambling, but you know what I mean.

It does take time to edit and process pictures and even more for video. All of the above add up to a fair bit of time and dollars. Perhaps you have enjoyed being able to partake of an event which I have videieio'd, or photographed, or some of the beauty of Nature, or odds n ends around the block and over n under wherever I happened to have pointed me lens.

This "project" is about getting what I already have on hard drives edited and up online, printing out and framing and hanging some photos and having the equipment to continue capturing/creating more too.

Here are some links to some pictures and Video I have done for community events. Share as you wish. Enjoy the beauty day.

Risks and challenges

The sky IS falling. It already fell actually, long ago. And yet, it is still there hanging above and filled with twinkling stars as well.
Time for a bowl of Chicken Little soup.
Now, where were we my friend?
Life IS a risk and a challenge, filled with unexamined beliefs, and jerking knees of defensiveness, as well as incredible sublime beauty and love.
Without risking, are we living, and one stray comet could change our day....
I guarantee, that I will continue to do my best to make nonsense of reality, doing art, taking pictures, and asking why and why not, to everything, exploring whatever this place is with as much awe, wonder, and childlike abandon as I can muster.
I hope you all will join me, and, lets change this world. I hope we soon learn to take care of each other and all life globally, protect the commons of Nature and build/rebuild the only real security there is; clean air, pure water, healthy soil, good friends, and community.

    Please note this reward actually "costs" $800, 000,000, 000,000,000 but there was no room for it in the system. For that we'll fund healthcare and education globally, and send most all politicians, lobbyists, and warring folks etc, to the unknown continent off Greenland which is 6" above sea level, and let em leave the rest of us to live peacefully. We may have to repeat the crop every year or so until we get sane governance and regulation which works within the workings of Nature.
