The Real Disparity in This Country -

From my perspective the real disparity in this country is not caused by unequal pay or this person getting too much and another person getting too little -

for me - I see it that there is just not enough thankfulness for what people have and thus no matter what most people have - no matter how much or how little - most of them don't seem to be satisfied with whatever they have -

so I would say then that it is not too little money or work that anyone has but too little thankfulness for what they do have no matter who they are -

The New Rules for Marketing and PR

well - it is difficult to judge - know about the thinking of  or even begin to understand anything about anyone else in this world - I am listening to the New Rules of Marketing and PR -(by David Meerman Scott):

The New Rules of Marketing & PR: How to Use Social Media, Online Video, Mobile Applications, Blogs, News Releases, and Viral Marketing to Reach Buyers Directly

 now and there are so many things that are possible to utilize to market and let people know about so many things - if only I would stop focusing on creating my images and spend time on tweeting and posting on Facebook and LinkedIn and if those same people who might be interested in one image or another would be right there monitoring these tools - but then how much and what type of art would I have to create in order to attract their attention -

I can only hope that there will be some person or group or people who will - eventually - or even right now - become interested enough in my art to take over some of this type of communication about any one or all of my images (as an entire collection) so that interested parties will become more aware of that which I have created -

I do not remember -

I remember the very first photograph that I took with my very first camera - and how I felt about taking it and that I was wondering at that moment if anyone else in the world would ever get to see that image - but I do not remember what was the very first thought that I ever had about creating images or photographing - that has so far been lost to my memory

what works for you?

no matter who you are or what it is that you do - there are times that you need something - a book - an idea - a picture - to remind you or to jolt your thinking in a specific direction - something to remind you of something or someone or an idea that you need to keep yourself motivated in a specific desired direction -

there is no telling one that something is for any one person and it does not have to be something that makes any sense whatsoever to anyone else in the entire world - but if that something works for you - then it is your responsibility to yourself to find that something and to remember to look at it or get in touch with you so that you remain on track for yourself -


Ebola question

It is commendable of course that Bill Gate's Foundation - which also receives money from Warren Buffett - is sending money  to eradicate Ebola from parts of Africa - but I am wondering if it would be easier to do this eradication if the people that are in these areas were better fed and healthier to start with -
