Dreams, Alive.

Mesmerized, having undergone a recent awakening (inspired by Michael Stone) that maintaining a strong focus on inner work does not have to suggest we detach ourselves from reality, nor should inner work be sought as a means to solely transcend reality. I was stuck on this point last year. A close friend and I spent...

What do you stand for?

This year, EscapeToLight.com will not feature any work with photography clientele, and I’m working to remove / rearrange my former photography portfolio to an entirely new location.  A separate journey, and one that is now more personal than it once was. Any work I choose to share in the future will be shared at the...

Boundedness Gives Shape to Life

“Boundedness gives shape to life. Self-centeredness gives the illusion of freedom.”  – Arthur Dobrin, Psychology Today (psychologytoday.com)   Going into the new year with discipline, non-attachment, and total openness in mind.

Life Offline. . .

Description: Anonymous, aware. We must build from the inside. We can only know the inside if we continue to listen, consistently.

“I have such respect for expressions of life that are out there, [especially] if you have acceptance that “death” is not the end. I was afraid to die unfulfilled. To think that I would go like that was just too much. My soul is meant to save the world… or something. That hope has lived in me...

Late April – July

This year has called for quite a bit of extra time in the forest. Although I’ve taken hundreds of photos during these quiet times, I haven’t really shared any. These are just a few of my favorites from the last few months. Streams, deep-forests and lush rolling hills, caves, waterfalls, and cave pools. True love.

Free.

You Can Say No As life’s journey continues, this process is gradual and ongoing. I’m beginning to feel the permanency of letting go. I can only hope this will be an example for my child as he grows into an adult, and I’m encouraged by friends who are also making these choices to live a...

Little Update.

I Love Mother Earth. I have been forest-dwelling yet again this past Friday, Saturday, & today and will be sharing some nice photos/videos this week. Words cannot describe the feelings you feel while rested upon rocks under a recess cave during a rainstorm, and watching/listening to the rainfall. I  have also been working with expired...
