"Your Personal Energy and Focus".... an excerpt from Michael St.Clair

* (page 53) *   "I do all my work using an intense focus, and I do not allow my energy and focus to be dragged into the devolving human world. Each one of us similarly has a light of focus; but the world steals the light of most people and uses - or misuses - it for its own ends.


I say "steal", but the problem is that people take part in the loss of their own energy, because they like the circus game and the distractions. The entry price into the human game is energy or…

A Quote by MORRIS BERMAN....

"The Re-enchantment of the world":

The sickness of contemporary life,

pervaded with heavy drug use and alcoholism,

stems from the futile attempt of scientific culture

to eradicate holistic perception.

But holistic cognition is a primary ecological

perception of nature rooted in biological substrate,

and present before the ego ever rises".

-another short quote-

"Commodification of knowledge necessarily means

a loss of nuance, and we see…

hands and feet

Jesus promises that when we step out to be the hands and feet, he will go with us.


I am stepping.

I leave in a few rapidly-approaching hours for a short trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

Not the PV Americans visit on summer vacation trips with family.

Not PV of beaches and surf and sand.

I leave for PV of poverty~

of native villages and groups of women waking each day, the…

tired of chaff

tired of chaff

What have you done lately that made you stretch?

That took you outside of your comfort zone?

There've been big things for me:

Giving birth: Creating a slew of new bodies to inhabit this earth and become the next generation~

Starting EncaustiKits: Opening myself up to the work of this, the unknown of this, the blessing…

The first time!

This is the first time all of my original art has left the house at once! It is on display at the Southdown Plantation in Houma, Louisiana. This has been the perfect place to start for me because they are so easy to work with and the mistakes are learning experiences instead of disasters It is also a great blessing to be working to answered prayer. The art world is a place to go in steps for me. It will be interesting to see when and where the next step will be!  JeffDuke

Lambertian Wooden Photographs, Exhibition through December 31 in Chicago

Press Release:

Greg Halvorsen Schreck employs technological advances in the production of his Lambertian portrait photographs.  A Lambertian photograph is a image that consists entirely of light and shadow.  96 pieces of wood replace pigments, inks and emulsion to construct the photograph.  In the daylight, the wood pieces appear as a carved sculpture; however, a single light source raking across the surface magically reveals a black and white photograph.…

At the right end of this overgrown wall sits a large storage container-- behind and around this spot is where Steve Flath has been living for the past couple years.…

The Flavor of Salt

“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men". Matthew 5:13 

In this video you can see how this verse influenced me.  The song was written and performed specifcally for this piece by Carly McIlvaine.

Rain Day Blues
