Each image holds not only valuable insights, lessons and growth potential for myself but as the years have accumulated I recognise, although personal to me, their core is universal. Sharing such meetings and my images over the years has triggered and developed an incredible connective relationship to those participating. It reveals how we are in essence and through each of our own personal experiences, a part of the vast family of humanity. Technology today seems strangley to seperate us many times from the awareness of this reality. That very awareness, as it bubbles up within the context of "An Evening with...." shows us all how imperative it is to not only share community but interact within a framework of listening, tolerance, loving kindness and desire to learn from each other. We have so much to teach and learn from others and with today's world looking and feeling so grim, dark and fearful, it is our collective endeavour that will ultimately break these cycles creating essential and natural evolutionary change within each and all of us.
