GOAL FOR 2011 - I have one major goal for 2011 and that is to "listen." And by listen, I mean not only with my ears but with my entire being - I want to listen with my eyes, listen with my heart, listen with my intuition, listen with my deepest self. I seek to listen more fully to the world, certainly to other people, but also to the natural world with its unheard voices, and even to the world of mysticism. When it comes to photography, I want to listen in a more intentional and focused way to the light, to shape and design, to line and pattern, to color and tone, to the photographs of others, to critiques and insights, to the wisdom and genius of great photographers of the past. In listening, I want to listen more to my deepest self, to the artist within, to the vision that often seems to remain silent. To use the language of the Book of Common Prayer, I want to "read, mark, learn and inwardly digest," the gift of listening.
