    Speaking in Sights

    Stories, food, music, sights. They all have the ability to dance in our heads and light up our imagination. As said in Kurt Vonnegut's presentation they all have shape and direction. Up down left to right and every direction in between. Understanding that the best stories optimize the use of…

    Jim Richardson


    Today I tried to pick just a few of Jim Richardson’s photographs which I liked the best. It wasn’t easy to narrow down my choices, but I feel these each exemplify different compositional techniques. Each of these is taken from the Small World Gallery website and is linked in the …

    Storytelling from the Past to the Present


    Our writing style and the way we communicate today has changed tremendously compared to how we wrote and communicated in the past. Before, we were confined to written or printed media.

    What we yearn to know.

    Is this “haiku” enough yet?
