NEW YEARS DAY, 2017
The only thing cuter than 2 Rajasthai kids is 4 Rajasthani Kids.
As I was walking around the Bitari Farm near Palodi on New Years day a couple of boys came running up to me and dragged me over to the goat shed to show me the cutest little kids. We all laughed as the baby goats were a real pain in the udder as they pushed, shoved, and excitedly jockeyed for position for their morning breakfast.
Crisp cold air, hot warm milk, excitement and laughter, and boundless energy. The young ones, both humans and goat kids, were so in the moment; vibrantly alive, acutely attuned to the world, and so open to the gifts this particular day had to offer. It is a lesson worth learning. Both excelled at the joy of just being. It was as though these things were all that mattered. - They were right.
I love this place it never ceases to amuse and amaze me … and teach me.

I paint, photograph, and speak about wild places in an act of reciprocity that is as vital to me as heartbeat or breath.
My interest in the magic and mystery of the natural world lies at the intersection of art and science.
