~ Albrecht Dürer
Truly, art is embedded in nature; he who can extract it, has it.
~ Albrecht Dürer
I’m Muslin the way many of my Jewish friends are Jewish: I avoid pork, and I take the big holidays off. ~ Aasif Mandvi
I see the scriptures of the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament very much the same way that I see the scriptures of the Quran or the Gathas or the Vedas or what have you. I think that these scriptures are inspired by individuals who, in a moment of metaphysical contact with the divine spirit, have been able to communicate something about God to us.
~ Reza Aslan
The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient.
One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach – waiting for a gift from the sea. ~ Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Travel can be a kind of monasticism on the move: On the road, we often live more simply, with no more possessions than we can carry, and surrendering ourselves to chance. This is what Camus meant when he said that “what gives value to travel is fear” – disruption, in other words, (or emancipation) from circumstance, and all the habits behind which we hide. – Pico Iyer, “Why We Travel”
I believe that God felt sorry for actors so he created Hollywood to give them a place in the sun and a swimming pool. The price they had to pay was to surrender their talent.
~ Cedric Hardwicke
I think when a surfer becomes a surfer, it’s almost like an obligation to be an environmentalist at the same time. ~ Kelly Slater
I think there are specific times where film noir is a natural concomitant of the mood.
When there’s insecurity, collapse of financial systems – that’s where film noir
always hits fertile ground. ~ Werner Herzog
To paint is to love again. It’s only when we look with eyes of love that we see as the painter sees. His is a love, moreover, which is free of possessiveness. What the painter sees he is duty-bound to share. Usually he makes us see and feel what ordinarily we ignore or are immune to. His manner of approaching the world tells us, in effect, that nothing is vile or hideous, nothing is stale, flat and unpalatable unless it be our own power of vision. To see is not merely to look. One must look-see. See into and around. ~ Henry Miller
It takes a lot of skill to be able to grow food sustainably. It’s an art form. We need to raise agriculture up to another different level like they do in Europe where farmers are on the same level as engineers and doctors … because the food that we eat is the most important thing in our lives. ~ Will Allen, Urban Farmer Growing Power, Milwaukee, WI
I shot this at an MLK Day event with Netiya, an interfaith food justice network that cultivates gardens on unused congregational land and the 4th graders of the Valley Beth Shalom Day School at the Shared Earth Project urban garden being grown on available land at the Universalist Unitarian Church of Studio City, CA.
I use photography, writing and technology to explore the world.
