ESC: Julianne to the Rescue

Contrary to popular belief, celebs use drugstore products, too…or, at least the makeup artists who work on them do. Just ask beauty guru Julianne Kaye, who shares the affordable finds that industry experts like just as much (or even better) than designer brands.My guilty pleasure is going in to Walgreens for a prescription and walking out with a ton of inexpensive, awesome makeup. It’s like when you do a target run for toilet paper but end up spending $300 on things you didn’t know you wanted or needed. I’ve done a lot of drugstore shopping as well as worked with some great brands that have truly…

Gallery Showing Planned for Nov., 2016

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words, and More!


Photography is more powerful than the title implies.  In November of this year, members of the Pixel Photo Club will display photos in the gallery at the Twinsburg, Ohio Public Library.  This will be your opportunity to see the works of some of the area’s top photographers in a single, convenient location.  Pixel club members represent a wide range of interests and expertise.


Gallery showings provide both photographers and audiences opportunities limited only by one’s imagination and passion.  In August 2014 I was fortunate to participate in a gallery showing.  My contribution to that showing included a collage entitled “Two Faces of Charleston.”  The two photos in the collage were taken during my family reunion in Charleston, South Carolina.  The “magic” of the photo gallery experience, is that one or a series of photos, even when taken with no specific purpose in mind, can create a powerful story and message.  The experience of taking the photos, and their meaning to me are expressed in a newsletter article which can be seen in the photo below

So a story that began with two unrelated photos, culminated in a revealing, thought-provoking, and emotional journey through History. My experiences, reflections and projections resulted in my article designed to educate and inspire.  



Others would look at the same two photos, learn and visualize something entirely different.  Still others might see absolutely nothing except for two photos.  The beauty of photography is its ability to entertain, educate, inspire, and open the mind to unlimited possibilities; yet not require the observer to conform to any set of rules.


Please plan to visit the gallery during November.  Updates for this month long event will be shared on this page. To view a brief Slideshow of our preparation for the previous gallery showing please click here!

The Tough CEO . . . or  (“Don’t Assume You Know Everything”)


To be certain that your primary exercise does not consist of “Jumping to Conclusions,”  remember the story of The Tough CEO.


A large company, feeling it was time for a shakeup, hired a new CEO. This new boss was determined to rid the company of all slackers.  On a tour of the facilities, the CEO noticed a guy leaning on a wall. The room was full of workers and he wanted to let them know that he meant business!


The new CEO walked up to the guy leaning against the wall and asked, “How much money do you make a week?”


A little surprised, the young fellow looked at him and replied, “I make $300.00 a week. Why?”


The CEO then handed the guy $1,200 in cash and screamed, “Here’s four weeks’ pay, now GET OUT and don’t come back.”


Feeling pretty good about himself, the CEO looked around the room and asked, “Does anyone want to tell me what that goof-off did here?”


From across the room came a voice . . .


“Pizza delivery guy from Domino’s.”
