If you ever want a copy any of my photographs/poetry/writing anywhere in my social media to put on your wall or to view outside of this space, in classrooms anywhere, please let me know and I’ll give you an opportunity to purchase it. All funds raised go to supporting my creative work. This applies to all of my work.
To protect copyright I will be endeavoring to put less work out there, lower resolution, watermarks etc. It may seem futile, but it is always good to attribute and respect any work you come across online. I will be working on some poetry/photographic works in the future. And to anyone who hasn’t done this in the past, amnesty, perhaps you didn’t realise this wasn’t a fair thing to do.
Why not pay me something now, or support Magic Fish Dreaming, then I can keep making more work. I love to share work and build an audience and all of that, but sometimes people without thinking just print and share perhaps not realising this is going beyond admiring on a wall.

“O God, my God! Praise be unto Thee for kindling the fire of divine love in the Holy Tree on the summit of the loftiest mount: that Tree which is ‘neither of the east nor of the west,’ that fire which blazed out till the flame of it soared upward to the Concourse on high, and from it those realities caught the light of guidance…”
-‘Abdu’l-Baha, Selections From the Writings of ‘Abdu’l-Baha
The rain itself hath no geometry, no limits, no form, but it taketh on one form or another, according to the restrictions of its vessel. In the same way, the Holy Essence of the Lord God is boundless, immeasurable, but His graces and splendours become finite in the creatures…
-`Abdu’l-Baha, Selections From the Writings of `Abdu’l-Baha
“Water symbolizes the water of life, which is knowledge, and fire is the fire of the love of God; therefore, man must be baptized with the water of life, the Holy Spirit and the fire of the love of the Kingdom.”

Here the hands represent the soul
in action and on that hand
is the imprint of the divine tree.
“The companions of all who adore Thee are the tears they shed, and the comforters of such as seek Thee are the groans they utter, and the food of them who haste to meet Thee is the fragments of their broken hearts.” -Baha’u’llah, Epistle to the Son of the Wolf
“Blessed thou art and more blessed thou shalt be if thy feet be firm, thy heart tranquil through the fragrance of His Holy Spirit and thy secret and hidden thoughts pure before the Lord of Hosts!” -‘Abdu’l-Baha, Tablets of ‘Abdu’l-Baha
