David Wright, my fabulous assistant for the last two years, principle architect of the ambitious Pause to Begin project, is leaving soon to work with socially conscious organizations in Africa. He’s raising funds for his trip with a print offer. You can help two good causes with one action. Here’s how.

“In January 2009 I leave Maine for Alebtong, Uganda, where I will spend two months volunteering and photographing for A River Blue, a non-profit arts empowerment project for the children of internally-displaced persons in Northern Uganda.

I will be using my large format camera to photograph the people and landscape for a traveling exhibition and book that will be used to raise funds for A River Blue. Details will be announced in the spring/summer of 2009.

To raise funds for the trip, I am offering a selection of my limited edition prints at substantially reduced prices.”

Please visit davidwrightphoto.com to support his trip, A River Blue, and Africa.

It’s election day in the USA.
Make your voice heard!
Vote!

If you have a firm opinion vote your conscience. If you’re undecided vote your gut reaction. If you don’t like the candidates, vote for the independents or write in a vote of no confidence. If you’re don’t feel voting will make a difference, I assure you it does. Men and women have died for the freedoms we enjoy. Men and women are still dying while trying to get the freedoms we enjoy. A healthy democracy (government for the people by the people) requires participation. Many people are hoping for record turnouts this year.
Be a part of history. Vote!

PS    Even if you haven’t registered, in many places it’s not to late; some places allow registration at the time and place of voting if you present a valid form of ID and a document stating residency (tax bill, rental agreement, paycheck, etc).
