One of the challenges I set for myself at the end of last year was to practice what I was preaching which was encouraging other people to submit their creative works to literary and commercial publications.  Towards that end, I submitted three images of a Somerville sunset to the online literary magazine, The Critical Pass.  I was honored that one of the images was selected to appear in the current issue, viewable via this link.  While, if you choose, you can easily discover which of these three images was selected, I hope you’ll have time to browse the other works in this issue, as well,  from the thoughtful Letter from the Editor to a wonderful interview with a 15-year old poet (pp. 18-20).

FYI, each of these images is available in my Zazzle Shop here, here and here.

It is an everlasting gift given to me by my parents. An appreciation for gardening.  I’m grateful that so far no matter where I have lived I have been able to play with seeds and soil.  Along the way, I have always learned something. One of those recent learnings was the genesis of this new photo essay, Practicing Patience, now appearing on Creativity PortalI hope you enjoy.

… a lovely surprise appeared at my door.  The postcards I mentioned as a work-in-progress in a previous post have arrived.  These are images I’ve had the pleasure of taking of the stained glass windows at Trinity Church in Copley Square, Boston, a building considered one of the most significant in American architecture.

These postcards will be available at the Book Shop located in the undercroft (lower level) of the church.  Learn more about the parish and current activities here and specifically tours here and about the Book Shop here.  In addition to postcards of the stained glass you will also find a few of my other nature-themed postcards like the following.  Happy writing! 😉

Thanks to all of the folks who have been encouraging me to enlarge my photographs.  I did so with a print of “Evening Light” and I’m happy to share that it has found a new home at Rockland Street Elderly Housing in Roxbury, Massachusetts.  The 18″ x 24″ framed print will hang with many other pieces selected by the senior center with the aid of The Art Connection, a nonprofit organization connecting artists and donors to community service organizations through the placement of original art.  But … please do keep in mind that I love my postcards, notecards and small prints that can be slipped into an envelope.  So if you’d like a “little evening light” in your home, there are blank cards available here.  Have a good rest of the week, folks. 😉

Steve Hands for Vine Leaves Literary Journal Issue 8

Steve Hands for Vine Leaves Literary Journal Issue 8

The best part about having been given carte blanche to use his words and my images of him however I choose … well, it is just so much fun to say out of the blue, “Hey, Steve, guess what?  There’s a picture of your hands appearing in a magazine next month.”  He pauses, takes a deep breath and then says, “So, when did you take this picture?”  And I get to make statements like, “Oh, don’t you remember that afternoon you were peeling shrimp and we were talking politics?”  Anyway … 😉  His hands are paired with a vignette in the online and print publication, Vine Leaves Literary Journal, Issue 8.  As explained on the journal’s website, a vignette is a word that originally meant “something that may be written on a vine-leaf.” A snapshot in words.  Here’s a link to the freshly launched issue filled with great brief reads and a wonderful array of images.

It’s an honor to have two of my photos appearing in an upcoming issue of Spirituality&Health magazine.  It is a special issue on Practice.  A beautiful publication with articles that especially resonate for me right now, on topics ranging from clearing mental clutter to the spiritual practice of silence.  You can learn more about this publication and other resources here.

I’m excited to share that now available at The Book Shop at Trinity Church in Copley Square, this mug and two different magnets depicting a photograph I took of the stained glass window, David’s Charge to Solomon.  As described in an earlier post, the window was designed by Edward Burne-Jones and executed by William Morris.  The entire window is of course fantastic but for me, with camera in-hand, it is the light streaming through these angels that draws my eyes.  To see these items and other lovely merchandise, visit the Book Shop in the undercroft (basement) of the church, or you can contact the Shop by phone at 617.536.0944 extension 225.

That is the theme of the May/June 2013 issue of Alive Now, a lovely, thought-provoking bimonthly publication.  I am honored to have the above photo appearing in an issue addressing a topic that affects perhaps all people in different ways.  On the magazine website, there is a section called Visual Psalmists where the photographers in each issue tell the story behind their images.  The May/June stories may not be up yet, so for now I’ll just share that I took this photo on a marina in Miami years ago while waiting to meet up with friends.  I sat on a bench, turned my head, and there it was in silhouette.

Via this link you can read English professor Hank Kellner’s latest article on Using Poems and Photos to Inspire Writing, an article that incorporates my poem, The Color of Sadness.  Throughout our lives, if we’re lucky, teachers guide us.  English teachers have been very important in my life.  That is why I am so honored to have met Hank who is so dedicated to helping other teachers inspire their students to write.  He enables teachers to help their students view a photo or a poem as a launching point.  He has certainly helped me view my own writing with new eyes.  I wrote the Color of Sadness as an expression of lingering grief over the loss of my parents.  I have watched him turn it into a teaching tool.  What an amazing world.  😉
