Hello from Maui

In Books, Influences, News & Stuff, Resources, Travel by David22 Comments

iPhone shot of dolphins swimming under the bow of the zodiac. Maui. A quick note to say hello. Kind of feeling guilty for being here and not dropping a line. We’ve been having an amazing time here -yesterday I spent the day in a zodiac off the coast of Lanai, a small island itself just off the coast of Maui. …

Gifts

In Books, Just For Fun, News & Stuff by David34 Comments

Hi all. Hope you had a lovely holiday, filled with family, friends, and love. Ours was subdued, a close friend was diagnosed to have a brain tumour and that brought the tone of things down. But it re-calibrates you in a hurry, this kind of event; reminds you quickly of the things you truly want for Christmas – health, family, …

More Books, But Not Mine, I swear.

I get a kick out of this one. It’s a spread from my first eBook, TEN, and it’s in Polish. Published by Galaktyka, the same publishers who will be publishing Within The Frame in Polish as well. Any idea how wierd it is to see your own book in a language you can’t read? This is the beautiful face of …

Craft and Vision

In Books, VisionMongers, Within The Frame by David7 Comments

Got in late last night from a long weekend in Seattle. We went a little under-the-radar and I know there were people that would have liked to have connected but I really needed some time to hang with my wife, and eat some great food. Sorry. We had relaxing to do, and the moment you start making too many plans… …

We Need More Obsessions

In Books, Images, Influences, Uncategorized, VisionMongers by David9 Comments

The cover of Paul Nicklen’s new book, Polar Obsession. I’m captivated by Paul Nicklen and his work right now. His book, Polar Obsession, is on its way from Amazon and I can’t wait until it arrives. I haven’t been this excited about a book coming my way for a while. I might even be more excited about this one arriving …
