To My Friend Denise

Last night when I went to bed I told myself today I would post some pictures that I shot the past couple of days. Since I've been working day and night on The Shutter Release Project, photography is on my mind. But, I woke up at 3 in the morning and started thinking about how you can always tell who your true friends are. I told myself when I started this blog to write about what's on my mind, so here it is.

I asked approximately 20 of my friends for support for this project. It's not as if tickets are $75 a piece, they're $10, or that I'm asking for them to donate $10,000 - I know I'm not on The Apprentice, but I am trying to complete a task within a limited time.              

I had one friend, Denise Germroth, that stepped up to the plate and gave me a donation. She seems to be the one friend that continues to support me and believes in me. The one that wants my visions to become a reality. So here's to my good friend Denise... Thank you for being such a good friend. I'm truly blessed and thankful to have you in my life.

Also, thanks to my friends that I didn't ask for support, but have purchased tickets and are supporting me by attending... Thank You!
Denise and her husband Gary

Oh, how I had forgotten about the innocence of a child. The color of skin, the size of a body, the structure of a face does not matter. They are ready to accept and love unconditionally until we and society teach them differently.

There was nothing but smiles and laughter as they danced, made beaded jewelry, and ate. They made sure that they all were a part of whatever they were participating in. They cared about each other's feelings and made sure that everyone was having fun and was happy. Why is it that we grow to become so obsessed with appearance and behavior of others that we miss seeing the light or the struggles in others?  We're so quick to judge b…
