In Dreams

Dream Poem

Once in the dream of a night
I stood Lone in the light of a magical wood,
Soul-deep in visions that poppy-like sprang;
And spirits of Truth were the birds that sang,
And spirits of Love were the stars that glowed,
And spirits of Peace were the streams that flowed
In that magical wood in the land of sleep.

 ~ From Song of a Dream by Sarojini Naidu

Pow Wow

Images not intended for commercial purposes or use.

This was an extremely photo-friendly environment, as are most Pow Wows. I went with the idea that I might not be able to use my camera, or feel comfortable in doing so, but that was not the case. I took care not to include pictures of spectators or children, and only posted photos of those who were active participants performing in the Pow Wow.

Iglesia Adventista El Santuario

The Sanctuary Adventist Church is commonly known today as the Kill Bill Wedding Chapel from Quentin Tarantino’s movie — Kill Bill. In the film, the chapel represents the El Paso, Texas Two Pines Wedding Chapel where the Deadly Viper Assassination Team (Vivica Fox, Lucy Liu, Daryl Hannah, Michael Madsen, and David Carradine) attempt to kill The Bride (Uma Thurman). It’s also the church where Father Des Spellacy (played by Robert DeNiro) was banished to in the movie True Confessions.
