It has been a time of transition for me, perhaps beginning with the breakdown of my laptop in Prague (see Bad Apple).
Now here we are again, nine months later, a new laptop is readied to make the journey and for editing photos, updating web communications for this blog and keeping in touch with people in the US from Jerusalem.
I am a new born into a new life having seen my business in the commercial arts disappear in a failing economy, moved out from my Laguna Beach, California residence of 28.5 years into a room and a storage unit – those are the travailing weights, emotionally and psychologically of the pregnancy, and pains of my labor – a new born into what I do not know, like a new born seeing life for the first time. From this, I do know, I must pursue this project of bringing awareness of the consecrated to the American church. I do know I am free to do that and that I must because I am freed to do that.
I have seen successful investment by sponsors to finance the upcoming (2009/10) Israel trip as well as invitations from across the country for me to come stay – photograph the life and consecrated spaces in the towns of my hosts: Manhattan, Washington D.C., Denver, Santa Barbara, Albuquerque, Chicago. Back to doing what is important to me. This blog can now be active again as I take the time to consider the consecrated and share this journey.
