We Are Chemistry, Electricity & Hope


We are chemistry, electricity & hope for a better day, everyday. Ashley Marder Bowman has curly red hair and wishes to share the strength of her experience with others who want to learn more about how to cope with hair loss, irregardless of the cause.

What Is This Gift


What is this gift to touch another’s soul and to recognize the infinitesimal levels of balance, which exist in each of us, at one and then another moment in our lives. And to have the equilibrium to capture the visual energy of that infinitesimal moment, for all to witness and engage with. Banu Valladares engaging her …full human identity.

Mandi English Is An Agent Provocateur


Mandi English Is an Agent Provocateur, only, not in any traditional sense: “…Convincing people to commit crimes, or to break the law, so that they can be arrested”, unless the law is one which limits your personal style, such as restricting the way you choose to dress, or the manner in which you choose to wear your hair!

Mandi is all for the freedom of expression, and a true blue agent provocateur.

What’s He Doing In There?


A great photograph has the quiet fortitude to move mountains in our minds, for years! My portrait of author John Ramsey Miller calls to me, from my subconscious, during the change in seasons.

“A SOLITARY HAWK SHIFTED ITS WINGS AGAINST INVISIBLE CURRENTS AND traced lazy circles in a blue ocean of sky.” The first sentence in John’s first work of fiction titled “The Last Family”.

Jonathan & Hugo



Hurricane Hugo passed over our house at dawn on September 22nd, 1989 with winds still gusting at 100 MPH. A row of 70 foot White Oaks flanked our home to the North & East. All four trees survived the high winds and pelting rain, until last week, when Jonathan was called on to remove our 98 year ringed triple-trunked wonder.

Jonathan Piscitelli Creates A Lot Of Sound


Jonathan Piscitelli creates a lot of sound, such as splashing water. And yet, I’ve never seen him swim a lap? That’s because the sound he’s making is verbal. Jonathan is a swim master, coaching swimmers at 6 AM three days a week, at public pools around Charlotte, before starting work as a writer, video & audio content producer & then moonlights as a DJ. I’m sure his ability to be heard underwater has contributed to that booming baritone he creates broadcast magic with. It’s Jonathan’s ability to find and reflect the best in the people he works with, which is the key to his success, Jonathan cares, and this gift extends their reach. His vocal connection helps those who depend on his talents to strive for more, to reach beyond their physical and emotional limits. It worked for me, just watching & listening to him work!
