I am the joy in change and movement. — Steve
The Lens-Artists photography group is celebrating their first anniversary. Hosts Tina, Amy, Patti, and Ann-Christine have invited us to choose our favorite photo subject. They chose Friendship, Connection, Imagination, and Discovery as the themes for their respective posts. I have chosen Steve, an undeniable person in my life who has taught me much about friendship, connection, imagination and discovery during the ten years we’ve known each other.
I really do grapple with the balance between these two elements of my consciousness, the thinker and the feeler, the heart and the head. The dance between the two is where good work is done. –Steve (forthelastwolverine.com)
Steve is the owner of Scholar and Poet Books, an online bookstore with listings on Amazon, eBay, A Libris, and ABE Books.
He is an English major, a philosopher, an anthropologist, an environmentalist, a musician, a conversationalist, a film fan, a student and teacher of spiritual psychology, a practitioner of Buddhism, a brother, a son, my housemate, and my friend.
He comes from Polish-German stock and thinks of himself as Slavic and moody.
There are three ideas that I make sure to spend time with every day. If pressed to reduce these ideas to a single word each, I might pick WILD, BEAUTY and ENOUGH. — Steve (forthelastwolverine.com)
Priscilla, you are one lucky woman and Steve is one lucky guy! A great choice for the challenge, absolutely loved your images. Every one of them shows tremendous caring of so many kinds. Really nicely done
Thanks, Tina. Congratulations and Thank You for the anniversary of Lens-Artists!
Thank you, Priscilla for this special post about Steve. Perfect choice for this week’s challenge. These photos are well captured and precious.
Thanks, Amy, and congratulations on a year of good work building community!
I’m encouraged by your compliment, Priscilla! Appreciate your support. 🙂
Steve seems like an awesome guy and my fav pics (hard to choose) are the bed one – snoozing – and the one in chair with books behind him – whispers of his scholar side and the whole photo is rich
And thanks for the quote:
Choose wisely, friends. And choose friends wisely.
Thanks for your visit and for helping me celebrate my friend. I wish you choice friendships, too.
Still thinking about my theme – so thanks for he suggestion!
the b & w in the armchair with the books stands out as a photo, but it is the collection as a whole that touches deepest. Wild, beautiful and now enough.
Absolutely those three things. I am grateful.
A wonderful post, a wonderful friend xxx
Yeah, he is. Thanks, dear. XXX
Nicely done. A thought-filled tribute.
Thank you, John.
Hi, Priscilla. I totally enjoyed your post and tribute to Steve! It’s true what you say–we choose to let someone into our lives and if we are lucky and we choose well, our lives are forever enriched. I am sure he could create another post in tribute to you! Thank you for joining us this week. I’m still smiling as I think about your post. 🙂
I’m glad I made you smile, Patti! Sharing smiles is great work. 🙂
Back from Iceland – and wow what a lovely post and tribute to Steve! He must be a wonderful man – and you certainly are a great woman! Thank you for support, lovely images and thoughtful words – always. Send an extra hug to Steve!
My boss and her family went to Iceland just a few months ago. Seems to be a popular destination, though unusual. Thanks for your kind words about my post!
Hope they are enjoying it! And “kind” is only the truth!

A very inspiring tribute and celebration. This universe is built by twos and the two of you prove it.
Thank you for the compliment on my blog post. Steve & I are not aspiring to build a universe, just to appreciate the one that’s already in process. Thanks for your visit!
I’m completely with you. Check out the blog post of mine called now more than ever.
Yes, I liked that post.
Thank you very much.
