About the photos…

I took many of the photos on this site, including the background images.

A picture can, indeed, be worth a thousand words, and is also an expression of an artist’s unique vision but I offer   shorter tales about some of these images in case you are interested in the stories behind them, and the rich tapestry of my life experience. I invite you to visit the gallery…



I slept and dreamt that life was joy.
I awoke and saw that life was service.
I acted and behold, service was joy.
Rabindranath Tagore - philosopher, author, songwriter, painter, educator, composer, Nobel laureate (1861-1941)
