"Bodies, trees, antique cars... they're all just atoms in the light. We can make whatever we imagine from them, and in the process learn all about the being we are, who notices what we notice." This book matches black and white photographs I have made with statements I have said regarding insights I have experienced. The photographs can be a resting place between the insights, or a visual that expands upon the words in a way that words alone can not do. Photographer Connie Imboden wrote the foreword, and David Bayles,co-author of "Art and Fear" wrote a back cover blurb. This book has won two finalist medals in the 2015 Next Generation Indie Book Awards, for Overall Design and Motivational categories and First Place in the 2016 IPA, International Photography Awards for Professional: Book: Self Published.
