The Sanity of Uncommon Sense

This has everything to do with everything – including the future of photography. It seems that in America, common sense has become nonsensical. Common thinking seems to have evolved into confusion, narrow mindedness, apathy and ignorance. What I believe we desperately need is reality based uncommon sense, factuality, real world logic and sanity. We need rational thought, wisdom and open minds. In order to solve the major problems we face, we need to rethink everything we have done, we are doing now and will do in the future. Climate change is one of the most important issues we face – guns and killing are another. We humans have a whole host of issues to solve. Opinion is not going to resolve anything. We must work with facts, science and the realities of the world in which we live, eat and breath. The common good must be the common goal. Now is the time to face the future with the future in mind. We need revolutionary ideas that will restrain our madness. It’s a matter of saving ourselves from all of us and creating a reconcilable future for the life to come. The sooner we start, the better for us all. And yes, this has everything to do with everything – including photography.
