Booklovers will appreciate the commonalities and interaction between the written word and the transitory nature of photography in “Escaping Culture – The Reckoning” a visual perspective on a wide variety of contemporary topics through the interaction of three separate but connected mediums – a trinity of social commentary, photography, and parody. Photography is the visual language used to interact with prose, and caricature by design cuts through prevailing attitudes and conformity. These forms of expression are intrinsically related, sister-means of reflection, and revelation. Collaboratively they strip bare ambiguity, converging on matters readers should be informed and not on extraneous content that clouds the mind suffocating instinct, intuition, and common sense. The book is available on Amazon in June 2020.

A Father’s Lament

It’s my son’s 28th birthday today.  So naturally, I thought about China.

What does China have to do with his birthday?

Well, everything, actually.

It’s become increasingly clear to me with each passing year that China is positioned to challenge U.S. hegemony around the globe.   And that’s a good thing.

While U.S. world dominance depends on fiat and an oil-backed world currency reserve, perpetual war, and the pillaging of other countries’ resources, China has mapped out a different course. They’ve decided to construct not destruct the world around them.  They’re accomplishing this through a self-described Belt and Road Initiative, a global strategy designed to build infrastructure, development, and investments in 152 countries and international organizations in Asia, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and the Americas.
