(wow that sounds dirty and I don’t mean it to! LOL)
My copy is here! I ripped open the bag from Wiley Publishing almost the minute that I got it. It’s my first OFFICIAL published work (with hopes sent out to the universe for many more in the future)! I’m so giddy with excitement. A big thank you to the Bay Area’s Ginny Felch, who recruited me to be a part of this awesome work and to her co-author and pal of mine, Allison Tyler Jones, who has had her life changed by contributors Jeff & Julia Woods as much as my life has been changed by their brand of inspiration and art. I am honored to be present in this amazing group of photographers, some of whom I have met and known Stacey Wasmuth and Lisa Russo as well as other photographers whose work appears in this amazing text: Kim Heffington, Melanie Sikma, Laura Cottrill. I should mention that the Photo Workshop concept is a brainchild by the famous and wonderful Robert Farber.
Needless to say I am without words (a first) and now I must go be excited and look through this amazing text.
Thanks for stopping in!
p.s. On a much more solemn and serious note. I cannot turn my head without making a plea for these majestic and much needed animals. Today I rec’d notice from the Defenders of Wildlife that the Bush/Cheney Administration is stripping the vital federal protection for wolves in the Greater Yellowstone and Northern Rockies area. This area and these animals hold a truly special place in my heart and under the existing management plans all but 300 wolves could be eliminated which would be a huge tragedy. Please, if you are lucky enough to be able to make a donation for whatever you can afford, please consider donating to help save our wolves. This often misunderstood creature has become a vital part to re-establishing the food chain balance in the area of its’ reintroduction.
