When we take the time to truly see… to pay attention and be aware… the power, potential, beauty and tragedy of life meets our gaze with full force and can shift our view of the world forever.
I’ve just arrived for a month in Ortigia, Italy. To my delight, an exhibit by my favorite photojournalist Steve McCurry has opened just blocks from my flat overlooking the Mediterranean.
Steve’s work around the world, often in the most difficult, impoverished or war-torn regions, is transformative. The silence of his brilliant images speaks to us of history, culture, passion, perseverance, suffering and an inherent human dignity that cannot be destroyed.
I invite you to gaze into the face of the world around you and allow the clarity of your vision to unlock subtle truths, hidden depths and silent stories that bind us all together as one.
