TODAY’S SUNDAY SHARE: STEPHEN N. MYERS, ARTIST/PHOTOGRAPHER

Today I’d like to feature an artist and photographer, Stephen N. Myers, whose work I published years ago when I worked in publishing. His work continues to be classic and provides a inner vision into the beauty of plants and flowers through his x-ray photography.  See http://www.xray-art.com to view his work and be sure to check out the gallery if you wish.

TODAY’S SUNDAY SHARE: WILLIAM GILES, PHOTOGRAPHER

I had the pleasure of meeting photographer William Giles last weekend. He is an extraordinary photographer whose work gives me goosebumps. He spoke to me about how everything is light.

He studied with Ansel Adams, among other greats, and now share his unique knowledge and experience with others in his own workshops. He taught at university and also served as Chairman of the Dept. of Photography at the University of Rochester. Read “About Will” to learn more about his fascinating life on his website, which is http://www.williamgiles.com. Check out his gallery in particular. I especially love the photograph of the owl. I had to stand and stare at it for a long time when I first saw it. It is still with me whenever I close my eyes.

TODAY’S SUNDAY SHARE: MUSICIAN JOHN CAREY

John Carey is a wonderful singer and songwriter with a diverse range of music, including some beautiful spiritual songs.

Here’s one of his songs I love, although it’s a very basic recording. His musicianship shines through.

Ancient Sojourn, stoneware, 35″x19″x17″

Artist’s Note: “This is a piece from a dream. I dreamed I was floating above a turtle and when I woke, all I could think about was how to make clay float. I am still working that out. Turtles are my symbol for patience and the meditator celebrates our inner light and gives us permission to Be.”

Healing Session, stoneware, salt fired. 14x10x10
Artist’s note: “Not only are hands-on healing sessions valuable, making it in clay is healing for me too.”

MUSICAL GIFT JUST FOR YOU FROM JOHN SAXON FOR TODAY’S SUNDAY SHARE

Today we have a very special gift. I asked healer and award-winning musician John Saxon to do a group piano reading specifically for us. A piano reading is like a psychic reading, but rather than receiving images to describe, John receives music that he then plays on the piano.  It faithfully renders your deepest, truest self in piano music form, bringing your hidden gold to consciousness. Read more about his work at Http://www.pianoreadings.com. You can also email him at John.saxon@pianoreadings.com to find out more about his work or to commission a piano reading for you as an individual or for someone special.

Photographer Marcus Radcliffe, The Butterfly Whisperer, from Australia for today’s Sunday Share

Photographer Marcus Radcliffe from Australia travels around the world, doing photography of nature, landscape, and more. I call him the butterfly whisperer because of his beautiful connection with butterflies, the symbol of transformation. Marcus says, “This is what happens when I ask God if I can take pictures of butterflies. I say if I’m God and the butterfly’s God, then come land on this flower so I can take a picture and that’s exactly what’s happens. Even if the picture doesn’t come out clear, I tell it to come back so I can get the perfect picture and that’s the story. Happy days. Work’s a treat. Loving life. It works if you believe.”

Poetry by award-winning novelist Elyse Singleton for Sunday’s Share

DEMON by Elyse Singleton

Resentment is a fickle, blind demon cat
sent out to hunt the enemy
only to return with your hours and years
clinched in its razor, ravenous teeth.

 

SPEAK by Elyse Singleton
Please speak in non-toxic tongues
that deliver life-anchoring streams
of praise, erudition, curiosity,
insight,  and generosity.
After all, you’re the one who hears it
first.

Elyse Singleton is an award-winning freelance journalist and novelist whose work has appeared throughout the United States, in such publications as the Chicago Tribune, Miami Herald, Denver Post, and USA Today, and in Canada, New Zealand, and Europe. Her novel, This Side of the Sky, was published by Penguin Putnam in 2002. She now leads live workshops and offers online tutorials as she completes a trilogy of novels.
