As noted in my previous entry, I’m working on a 30x project on the theme of curves. 30 days, 30 pictures. I’ve also tried to find inspirational quotes that fit with the pics. I’ve included my latest pictures and quotes here and try to provide some explanation when possible. I have to admit, my writing energy is at a bit of a low I have a ton of deadlines that are all due October 1st. Craziness!! So forgive the lack of written creativity in this blog post.
Kokopelli play for me, So my heart may sing, Magic flute of mystery, Fruitful dreams you bring. Song of Aztlan, Fertile Fire, Canyons of my mind, Sacred union, Heart to heart, Speaks of the Divine.

“You must not deal only with the symptoms. You have to get to the root causes by promoting environmental rehabilitation and empowering people to do things for themselves. What is done for the people without involving them cannot be sustained.”“In a few decades, the relationship between the environment, resources and conflict may seem almost as obvious as the connection we see today between human rights, democracy and peace.”
