I Feel like a prison holding myself, bounded by the judgements of people I care and chained by the rules of the society I live in. If I would let the person who speaks inside me out, he would tell you a different story than what you have seen all these years. Sometimes I see myself crying, screaming and trying to tear myself into pieces when I stand in front of the mirror so that I could finally be free from myself. But the demons I have created inside me to guard beats me down and laughs at me, watching me bleed.

Bruges was his dead wife. And his dead wife was Bruges. The two were untied in a like destiny. It was Bruges-la-Morte, the dead town entombed in its stone quais, with the arteries of its canals cold once the great pulse of the sea had ceased beating in them.

For the few that follow this blog. I’m going to be integrating my art (photography) with my activism. That means that this blog will be primarily my images with some text relevant to the image and the issue I’m trying to address.
Some images will be food with recipes. But all will be from the RiverHouse. Right here in Oswego County, NY.
Not quite as satisfying as a straight on rant but much more truthful. I hope you stay with me for this ride. I think you’ll enjoy it.
I know I will.
The NRA has stopped being of any use in this country. It represents the Gun Manufacturers and their most loyal customers. People of color are viewed as the enemy by these people and the reason many of them are so heavily armed.
