I would like all of you, for a moment, to contemplate a world without images – without the photographs and the many arts that enrich our experiences – and the next time someone gives you a very reasonable price for their time and creativity don’t tell them they are charging too much. Be grateful that they are willing to live the lifestyle (which these days is often shaky at best) that allows them to put their time into their art – delight in and support that choice!!

I recently had someone tell me that my quote, my creative fee was too much for a proposed job – when the quote I gave was half of what I would ‘normally’ charge. So here is my question – was your salary cut in half? And how well would you be living if it had been?

Until you acknowledge and accept that creatives, too, must be making a ‘good’ living for the economy to improve, it will continue to lumber along as it is. We are an important and necessary part of the cycle. Theatre, film, music, art, photography … they are a source not only of entertainment, but of joy. Just remember that, and the image of today’s world without pictures. They are everywhere and in everything we do.

Support your own quality of life by supporting us!

If this resonates with you – then repost it on your wall and in your blog so more will see it and THINK.

We, the creative people in your lives, realize that in a tight economy our art … music … film … photography may not be the first priority on your spending list. But consider the joy we bring as we light up your lives with wonderful sound and beautiful visuals. Remember how that joy expands to bring even more joy into your life.

Then remember that this is also how we make our living, think how much you truly appreciate what we do, and then think twice before you ask us to do it for almost nothing.

We love to be appreciated and by paying us what we ask, you truly do value and appreciate us and the quality of what we bring to your lives. –C.M.

On the previous post I cheated just a bit.  I was talking about France and posted a couple of photos taken at the home of Dollie Briggs in Newport.

My travels in Europe were in my film days and I still have not gotten around to scanning most of the good slides.  Sorry about that.  But to make it up to you – here are a few more pix from Dollie Brigg’s lovely home in Newport.
