Twenty Seventeen

As in past years, I sit to write this post pondering the significance of the ending of 2017. There isn’t one, for me. Or, at least there isn’t one founded in any meaningful milestone or other consequential event in my life or work. But, as I realized in past years, pausing to reflect on the events of a full year is good in itself, and seems especially worthy when shared alongside similar reflections by many of my colleagues.

Intelligence, imagination, talent, and creativity will get nowhere without a basis of knowledge and skills, and for this education must be sufficiently structured and focused. But an education too rigid, too formulaic, too lacking in narrative, may kill the once-active, inquisitive mind of a child. ~Oliver Sacks Albert Einstein may be the quintessential genius of […]

Endangered Experiences

We often express concern for the welfare of future generation, using it (at least partially) as reason to justify ongoing technological progress, larger cities and corporations, more jobs, more roads, more gadgets, more houses, more means of interaction and communication. And yet, we cannot ignore the fact that we are also taking a huge risk on the behalf of future generations, robbing them of both resources and experiences available to us that they may never be able to partake in.

Lens & Pens: A Writing Workshop for Photographers

The act of writing, when it goes well, gives me a pleasure, a joy, unlike any other. It takes me to another place–irrespective of my subject–where I am totally absorbed and oblivious to distracting thoughts, worries, preoccupations, or indeed the passage of time. In those rare, heavenly states of mind, I may write nonstop until […]
