I'M HERE TO EMPOWER YOU!
I’m an artist . . . but that’s not saying much, because I believe, and it is something that I have devoted my time heavily to convey, that art expression is an inherent property of human nature. The media may vary, but not the innate disposition.
Those that know me have heard my “talent-as-myth” diatribe all too often, and if you end up tuning in to my posts, you will encounter it soon enough. It is my goal to change the notion, which a great number of people resign to, that one needs to have “talent” to pursue the art they feel or want and am doing this on a daily basis through my program in the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers.
With that as preface, I will probably devote a portion of my posts to inspiring artists, but I also plan to impart other conceptions that I have about life in general, with the goal of elevating, encouraging, enlivening or energizing those who read them.
Let me begin with this:
I wish for you the ability to create for yourself all that your heart desires.

Good Morning, Cheetahs
Just a little homage to one of our world's beautiful creatures.
The cheetah is considered "Threatened" (given the status of "Vulnerable" by the IUCN [International Union for Conservation of Nature]) due to habitat loss, human-wildlife conflict, illegal pet trade, poaching, loss of prey and the high mortality rate of cheetah cubs."They are extinct in 20 countries and occupy only 17% of their historical range." [Dr. Femke Broekhuis, Project Director of the Mara Cheetah Project] The Asiatic cheetah is extinct from India and only exist in Iran, but fortunately there are efforts being made to save them: http://thewildlife.wbur.org/2016/03/24/saving-the-desert-cheetahs-of-iran/
