I use photography to focus on the beauty in our world.

A world that seems increasingly volatile where our lives can change in the blink of an eye!

The internet has brought us immediate information and communication. It is symbolic of our actual connectedness where we are all presented opportunities to be part of the solution.

Life changed drastically first week of January 2017 - my wonderful daughter was diagnosed with osteosarcoma: I have begun to write that story on MEDIUM

We can create the world we want by the food choices we make! Once we love and respect all life, beginning with our treatment and beliefs towards animals. With so many environmental and health issues facing us a diet free of meat and dairy goes a long way towards addressing these issues. A whole foods plant based diet will improve our health, lower cancer rates and make cardiovascular disease a history subject!

Not so well known is the correlation between diet and brain function including mental health and disease. It has now been discovered that the brain has a lymphatic system linking it to the immune system. Many believe in genes as being responsible for their health from cancer to dementia but it is the triggers of these genes that are switched on by our diet - a whole food plant based diet not only won't trigger these switches it can also switch them off, reversing disease already activated! How? - our gut microbiome contains 100 times more genes than we do, or at least a healthy gut does. It is becoming increasingly evident that a decrease in the diversity of our gut bacteria affects our brain function leading to many of the "inflammatory" modern diseases including autoimmune, cancers, alzheimers and autism!

...processed foods from chemically induced soils and seed and meat and dairy lead to health issues that are dealt with by a pharmaceutical based medical system when all that needs fixing is the first issue of FOOD, what we eat!

"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food" - Hippocrates

"The doctor of the future will give NO medicine, but will interest her or his patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet and in the cause and prevention of disease" - Thomas Edison

It was only last century that our western medicine became pharmaceutically based. Prior to the 1930's our doctors were well versed in natural and plant based medicines. Due to our greed we have industries that perpetuate untruths and do not have our welfare at heart!

I challenge you to watch two documentaries: "Forks over Knives" and "Cowspiracy" - they may just save your life!

"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it.

Impossible is not a fact. Its an opinion.

Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare.

Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing." - Muhammad Ali
