I think most of us would agree that producing art gives us power. I see it as a power over ourselves, as opposed to power over what is outside of ourselves. It is a personal power over our own energy, perception, and motivational systems. And perhaps more important, the making of art helps us transcend the need to achieve a social equilibrium (which in my opinion, is rarely possible anyway). Instead, we are involved in a process by which we may achieve a degree of harmony within ourselves, in relation to the universe. In the dynamic state of being committed to a creative process, we do not... Read More
What if you were a child with potential worth a vista but were born and bred in darkness? What if you had futile dreams given the ebb of survival in Kolkata’s (Calcutta, India) red light area? Such was the epoch that little Avijit and his friends aspired in their uphill battle until Zana Briski, photographer, filmmaker and activist saw the unseen blooming in their dingy rooms. Zana’s appetite for giving back and her ardor to share smiles through her lenses gave a group of deprived children the pursuit of happiness. Grooming an excited bunch of children on photographic skills to recognize their... Read More

Yesterday, I was watching The View on ABC. Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield and Justin Timberlake, stars of the new movie, "The Social Network (2010)", were their first guests. Sherri asked Justin if he was going to keep recording music. His response hit my proverbial nail on its head. He said "Music comes in sudden bursts of creativity". I don't know if he came up with this term or if he borrowed it, but I had searched for the perfect description to describe the madness to my recent writing method.
Sudden bursts of creativity is precisely what has developed, and the way my inspiration... Read More
It’s about 90 degrees now—I feel like I’m sitting underneath a very fat man who’s breathing on me at a steady humid rate. I’m on my balcony watching Hollywood shimmer in the summer heat (unfortunately it’s technically fall) and I realize how much I love my view. My dog is sleeping next to my feet; she always seems to be sleeping, but I love her nonetheless. No matter how bad my day is, my view and my dog always put a smile on my face—I feel like people, including myself, have forgotten how many things there are to make us smile; like we’ve lost perspective.
In the last nine-years... Read More

The first thing I do every... Read More
I take my camera to the pond
bend down on the ground
aim the eye of the lens
and focus on the flower
that floats in the water
surround by green
and dirty water
even though everything
seems to stay low
and just float
and some drown
but she stands tall
through it all
and it's hard to ignore
she seems to have an ego
and boy is she proud
standing for all to see her
and her beauty... Read More
