Go Ahead – Ask Me

     I was recently interviewed by local writer, Judy Spiers. Being interviewed is an interesting process. I’ve been interviewed multiple times – even on television, but each interview has unique dynamics and a different perspective.  Judy approached me because I’m presenting a special program “In Search of Tigers” based on my journey to India, Nepal, and Thailand in search of some of the last remaining wild Tigers on earth.  As an artist specializing in wildlife, I travel to the wild and remote places where animals live and am increasingly involved in conservation efforts. I love sharing these adventures and the state of the environment through my art, photos, video and story telling to groups and organizations.  For those of you living in Western Washington this program is free and open to the public April 9th, 7 pm, at the Puyallup Public Library.

But I digress…..the interview……Read on.  I would enjoy your comments and posting the questions Judy didn’t ask me.   Go ahead – ask me. Here’s The Interview 

Join me on the journey.

Against or For?

Living in the age of social media where information is accessed and shared in seconds is exciting and enlightening. It also brings home, sometimes graphically, the atrocities against ourselves, animals, and the earth that sustains us.  My knee-jerk reaction to violence and destruction is to cry out in anger. I’ve discovered I don’t accomplish much if I’m stuck in anger.  To unstick myself and move forward I turn what I’m ‘against’ into a cause or a purpose I am ‘for’.  Mother Teresa described this concept in the following quote:

“No, I will not march in a protest against war, but when you organize a march for peace, please let me know, I’ll be the first to sign up.”      Mother Teresa

No matter the topic, shifting to this perspective is freeing and empowering.  It creates an environment where I can contribute from a place of compassion.  It feels good to share what I’m for. Below is a photo of one of those many things. I’ve also added several links to my blogroll to share with you.  What are you for?
