Respecting my elders

Ellen Wallenstein's photography is beautiful, and this project worth supporting. She is so close to her goal. I support her project. Please help her if you can: here is the link: "Respecting My Elders" is a collection of color portraits of creative persons over the age of eighty, photographed in their home and studios. They are the artists and intellectuals of my parents’ generation, whose wisdom and insight are important to our nation. Known as “The Greatest Generation”, and coming of age between the two World Wars, the effect of their contributions upon future generations is evident in their cultural legacies. As these people enter the last phase of long and productive lives, I believe they deserve to be celebrated. My photographs are meant to capture their spirit and beauty, and to inspire admiration by future generations.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator - I'm certified

Hi everyone, Happy to announce that I am now a certified practitioner of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is a self-report questionnaire designed to make Carl Jung's theory of psychological types understandable and useful in every day life, career plans, organizational planning, picking a major, etc.. It helps you to reflect on your preferences and actions in life, and to begin to integrate that knowledge into your choices and intentions. Psychological type is a theory of personality developed by Jung to explain the normal differences between healthy people. As people tend to act on these tendencies, the develop patterns of behavior. This assessment helps you to understand why you make the choices you make from a psychological point of view. How it works: You take the "test". Your results are emailed to you. I interpret your results for you. We discuss it. You apply it. Life is good.
