This link is to a new piece by Zuri Star called Keep Holding on. It fits the New Year quite well.
It seems that all around us this past year there was friction. In fact, I found myself enmeshed in three massive battles, all at the same time. I did not author those. I simply said “no” to three entities I saw as abusive of my fellow man, community and Ocean Environment.
friction |Ëˆfrik sh É™n|
the resistance that one surface or object encounters when moving over another : a lubrication system that reduces friction.
â€¢ the action of one surface or object rubbing against another : the friction of braking.
â€¢ conflict or animosity caused by a clash of wills, temperaments, or opinions : a considerable amount of friction between father and son.
So as we close out 2010 here are a few things to lubricate the road ahead.
A fantastic treatise on “love”, from the eyes of babes.
How to change the world completely, one girl at a time: The Girl Effect.
Beauty that matters. Sent along by Fernando Ismerio. A stunning high speed (slow motion) look at the oceans.
Best to use lubrication when you have something big to move.
Because as it stands, anything worth attaining must overcome the things that impede progress and the only lubricant that sustains that in our lives is love.
Perfect love casts out all fear. (John 4:18) Fear is a mind killer
The images below are a small selection that are my Year in Pictures gallery. Click on any of them to toggle through as a slide show. I am stunned at what I managed to produce in motion and in stills with the Canon 5d Mark 2 system. 3 Music videos. 2 reality show teasers. 6 commercial Photography campaigns. 18 editorial features, and a book and six covers. Then there is all the random wonderfulness below.
