The Quest

Remember the rush you feel when you meet a soul mate?  The sense of inherent rightness? The excitement? There is comfort in knowing that the search has ended and you and your partner share, at least for the time being, an unspoken understanding about what’s so in life. Recall the  sense of “this is home” […]

Keigwin is Coming!

Stopping Time

It’s hard to overestimate the importance of a good photographic dance image! I’ve looked at hundreds of dance photos over the years .  Some good, many bad, and a few great.  The great ones are fascinating.  As a child, I was given a book with many photos of the great Russian ballerina, Anna Pavlova.  I […]
