'A question I always ask myself before posting is, "Who am I posting this for?" The answer is, "Me and one other person." Me and that one other person who might find value. They may not comment or press "like," but I trust that they're here. Looking. Listening. Reading. Sharing themselves in whatever way feels comfortable.
I thank them too. They've given me a gift.'

- Wentworth Miller


Ikigai (生き甲斐) The reason for being; the thing that gets you up in the morning.
Meraki (μεράκι) To do something with soul, creativity, or love; to put something of yourself into your work.
Yūgen (幽玄) Relatively undefinable. Contextual. A profound, mysterious sense of the beauty of the universe. An awareness of the universe that triggers emotional responses too deep and mysterious for words. Yūgen suggests that beyond what can be said but is not an allusion to another world. It is about this world, this experience.
Dedication. Discipline. Perseverance.
"There is no such thing as a neutral word... Either you are speaking life... Or you are speaking death..."
"May your choices reflect your dreams, not your fears." - Nelson Mandela
Be well.
Thank you for looking :heart:

Is it fair to say you bring out the  Yūgen (幽玄)  in me? Your universe, the part you live in, I have not seen except through your eyes, your lens, the magic you make with camera and editing. It is exciting and wonderful, a place for dreams in my head, beautiful beyond words.

I Thank YOU for sharing! I am now and will remain eternally grateful my dear friend.

My dear friend, you know, it's people like yourself that keep me snapping away and who give me the great joy of sharing my work :aww: DA is a little dead these days, but I am thankful for your presence here with me!
You spoil me with your kind words! - as always. I am the one who is eternally grateful :tighthug:

DA is dead lately.... I too have ignored it to be honest. We moved the computer and I have just not gotten on like I used to do. I did send you a note on FB... I think you are not there often either. :) I do hope all is well with you and Daniel, I have heard no news from you in ages it seems. (Must be winter!)
It is true that your photography is inspiring beyond words. Look at all you have done, book covers, theater posters and ads, calendars, band photos, several websites and very noticed .... I, at one time, wanted to be like that, but did not put forth the effort, I didn't think it could happen. You have proven to me it is possible. You have a bright future ahead of you, and you have earned it. I have tried hard to express it, to let you know how remarkable I feel you are, and I always feel like I am coming up short. My words don't spoil you enough!! You have a heart of gold and the eye of an eagle. If I could give you a long :tighthug: I would.
