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.

Is it Spring Yet?
Yes, I know it's Spring already, but this is a little commiseration for those of you who are experiencing later-than-average cold weather. We're just starting to have a bit of warmth ... yum ... :o))
Western Lowland Gorilla, one of the great apes and currently listed as "critically endangered" (and completely out of its element in this snowy scene I've made here ... ;o))
And since Alex Lapidus says apes can be included in #monkeymonday, I'll give a shout out to them here ... :o) ( Monkey Monday) with thanks to Alex Lapidus and Jetski
