Al Satterwhite on the phone

I just had the delightful pleasure of talking for an hour with Al Satterwhite on the phone. He's a photographer whose work takes your breath away. Below are two of his YouTube compilations - fascinating: Hunter Thompson in Cozumel, Mexico, in 1974, photoshoot for Playboy. The South in the Sixties If you just want to feel good, browse through his work for the fine detail and slices of life. His work has so much the human touch, telling stories in facial expressions and the lens focus....

Dachshund Photos – My Dogs

Hans is my third dachshund - my first American one. Snoepie, in the top photo, was Belgian, and Snoep, the first one, was French but bought in Casablanca. He lived an adventurous life, in Morocco, Belgium, Switzerland, and the U.S. My second dacushund - called a tekkel in Belgium - was very different from Snoep, Snoep being aristocratic, the son of a French champion. But Snoepie loved everyone, and unlike Snoep, who never made a sound, barked at times. The thing about Snoep was how photogenic he...

Picasso at the Oud St. Jan Museum – Bruges

Sometime ago, I had the lucky opportunity to wander alone through the rooms of these drawings in Bruges. A small but significant, highly interesting exhibit of Picasso's  drawings. As always, there's a lot of wit, and what amazed me was the ability to say so much with so few strokes of the pen. It's here that a drawing of mine was on exhibit in December 2018. After leaving here, it's going to a yoga institute in Bruges for two months, on sale. After that, if not sold, it has another beautifu...

Allen Joseph Miner

Al has just transitioned. If you want to be truly inspired, go here and listen to the In Memorial video. Al doesn't just hope he'll survive. He has proof in having left the Earth 10,000-plus times as Lama Sing came into his body to give the readings over 45 years - in the trance-channel manner of Edgar Cayce. His wife, Susan Miner, is pulling back the curtain on aspects of his teaching and life that she observed at his side these last decades. To do this, she will have a weekly newsletter, th...
