I arrived in Oregon,
having moved from a small town
on eastern Long Island,
where I was inspired by the hope of romance and going west.
It was then, that I "left home"
with the heart and hopes of a prospector,
to live a life beyond my dreams.
And there, that I re-discovered a long held passion for photography,
and the way to a world, of infinite life.
"God was a creative being,
and because we were created in his image,
it is inescapably within us, to want to create.
Don't squander the talent you have,
But play the music you were gifted to hear"
