Tonight, the History Channel will be showing a film, "Angels and Demons Decoded"...Tom Hanks' character is based on a true genus of creativity here in Philadelphia, John Langdon. I had the opportunity to spend time and photograph him at work. My images will be in the feature tonight. Since my Mother was the first one to place a camera in my hand, I hope on this day, I and my work will continue to honor her!

On this very special day devoted to honoring our Mothers, I would like to take the time to do just that. My Mother was truly my best friend...she was the woman I was named after (which is a lot of pressure but what a gift!)...she was the woman who watched me when I first saw the photography from a "real" camera and worked very hard so that I would have one as a Christmas present...and she was such great fun to be with! My Mother was a gatherer. She loved adventures and the more people who could be a part, the better. She showed me by her example how to embrace it all, appreciating the good times and facing the most difficult challenges with true courage.
