What is it about this desire or need to communicate? What is it that we want to communicate? Does it have any merit other than simply talking to ourselves? For me, photography is like a second language. Perhaps I am just enough of an introvert that image language satisfies this tendency to at least visualize what I know or think I know. Not so, as the publications listed below indicate.
These writings and companion photographs speak about who I am and what I have learned and interpreted from others. I believe you will find joy/sadness, light/darkness, and success/failure being directly or metaphorically communicated.
The books and zines listed here touch on pauses in life, civil behavior, personal imaging growth, idea blogging, and haiku writing. Yes, it could be that it is “all about me” but, you may find that a few of the sentences could be about you!

In today's highly polarized climate of political interaction and social discourse that is growing in intensity, so much negativity is being communicated from all sides that the idea of civility has crept more and more into the collective consciousness. "Can't we just all get along?" is a common lament that pervades interpersonal and corporate environments alike. A large part of getting along is treating each other with respect and courtesy. But how do you do that when confronted with uncivil behavior by others?
This unique book explores the practical expression of civility through a series of personal stories that serve as outstanding real-life models for civil behavior in the face of conflict. These stories will encourage readers to take a closer look at their own lives while prompting acknowledgment of personal and inter-relationship issues and offer useful ideas about how to live more respectful and trusting lives. Individuals, as well as employers, government and religious leaders, teachers, conflict management and human rights consultants, police and military leaders, and countless others will benefit from the book's insights and examples.
The stories presented within these pages provide topics of discussion that will lead to deeper sharing and support within organizations and between everyday people and bring to the reader authentic and hope-filled responses to a troubled society.
