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.

Light Up the Night!
Times Square, looking north from the Empire State building (the night shots were the only good thing about my visit at the ES bldg … ;o)) Some of the buildings in view: Condé Nast (H&M logo), One Astor Plaza, Paramount Building (lower, with the clock face), Times Square Tower, One Worldwide Plaza (in the distance with the brightly lit pyramid top).
Times Square, like Vegas, lights up everything around it.

I'm sticking around until the "G+ is gone" error message appears on my profile page ... ;oD. But, since a lot of folks are pulling up stakes and moving on already, I thought I'd pop my other spaces in here.
I'm going to miss so many folks!
