Profile Information

About Me/Us:
I like photography, poetry, history, learning, all kinds of creativity. I always try to be a friend to those who feel unwanted. There are many of them in our society. I am inspired by those who bring hope into the world. I can often be found wandering the streets of Philly or New York, but I'm not lost. I'm searching. Searching for a photo to take, inspiration for a poem, or maybe for a history article to write, or maybe just to find a stranger who I can bring a smile to. I love to explore many cultures. Maybe that's because I come from a very international family. Or maybe I'm just curious. I hope that, in the end, my life will have made some good impact on the world, and that I might be able to make someone elses life a little better durring my time here on this twirling ball we call earth as it hurdles through the cosmos.
Relationship Status:
Baraka, Rick Burn's New York, Thunderheart, It's a Wonderful Life, Shawshank Redemption, Hotel Rwanda, Road to Perdition...I know it's a mobster movie but it depicts the tragedy of violence instead of glorifying it, Forrest Gump, Born into Brothels, The Visiter
I don't watch much TV, but when I do, I like to watch documenteries.
I love old jazz, especially the stuff from the 1920's to the 1960's. I love to chill in the jazz clubs in Harlem. I love all that hippie stuff from the 60's too, especially Hendrix. I dig Willie Nelson, classical, blues, and abunch of other stuff too.

Some of the best I've come across are Les Miserables, Ragtime, My Life in the Irish Brigade, Bound for Canaan, Black Elk Speaks, A Brief History of Time, the Epoch of Gilgamesh, the Ramayana, the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, Rumi, Walt Whitman, The Alchemist, Edward W.

Words of Hope and Peace

Posted on November 15, 2012 at 5:08pm 0 Comments

 The following quotes were all posts I came across on Facebook. They were all posted as rockets and bombs were falling in Palestine and Israel. I put them all together so that all who want peace will know YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

"Dear friends, I dont know how to start to write what i want to say. maybe the first words should be: I am human, I am Israeli. In that order. When Rockets and bombs are in Gaza, and in Israel- arriving to tel aviv as well for the first time from Gaza,…


Kahlil And The Sunset

Posted on August 28, 2010 at 11:30am 0 Comments

Yesterday I went to New York to hang out with a friend of mine, but as soon as I got into town, I received a text saying she had to work overtime and would not be able to make it. So I did something I often do. I went to a bookstore. I left the bookstore with a massive book filled with the works of Kahlil Gibran. I walked across Lower Manhattan then over the Brooklyn Bridge with the book in my hand. When I got to the Brooklyn end of the bridge, I thought I should go to my favorite restaurant…


The Homeless Man Who Changed The World

Posted on August 20, 2010 at 12:00am 0 Comments

There is a tiny park in Lower Manhattan, on Mulberry Street, in Chinatown, where a small sign hangs on a fence dedicated to the memory of a man named Jacob Riis. Who was Jacob Riis? For a time in the late 1800's, he was a homeless man who lived in New York, who had been chased away, by the cops, out of every place he could find to sleep, accept a certain grave in a forgotten corner of a local cemetery. And his only friend was a stray dog who used to sleep on the same grave at night. His only…


The Day I Found Hope in a Bird's Eyes.

Posted on August 16, 2010 at 11:30pm 0 Comments

A couple years ago, I ran into a terrible time in my life. I had been out of work for a while. My entire savings had run out. I had recently sold what little I had left of value at the pawn shop to buy food. My girlfriend had just broken up with me a few days before. And I had no idea where I was going to get my next rent payment. On the news I had seen that a hurricane had struck the Southeast, and was coming up the coast and was about to hit my part of the world. Well it turns out that by the… Continue
