My name is Alan Repech, and I am lucky to be able to live in both Sonoma County, CA wine country and Nevada County Gold country.
My goal is to evoke a response by working with the visual sense. Sometimes you may have an intellectual take on what you see and sometimes you’ll just “get a feeling.” Either way, please write in your comments because writing down your thoughts is a great way to gain clarity. Otherwise, your thoughts are just pictures in your mind where they’re subject to all kinds of biases and stories from your past. So write them down!
My words included with the photos are just that – mine. I invite you to look at the picture first and come up with your own interpretation. Then, read what I wrote and please write back!
Thank you for visiting! I hope you like the photos and musings you’ll find within.
OK – so it’s not exactly my house in the first place. I usually hang out in the marsh with the rest of my buddies. Once in a while, I just need a platform to make my case. I’m making a claim – taking a stand. How about you?
I’m flying! Wouldn’t that be cool. You get to look down and survey your surroundings from a completely different perspective. I guess that’s what first got everyone going on trying to fly like the birds. Flapping contraptions, falling off cliffs, jumping out of airplanes – what are we thinking? Just get some wings, face the wind, and soar! Well, sure, it’s not that easy, but what if we approached our lives in such a manner?
Get some wings – knowledge, tools, skills – whatever is needed for the situation. Face the wind – lean into the work, take out your pencils, begin. Soar – detach from the results – you’re flying!
So I’m out for a stroll on the beach – trying to find some quiet time. And wouldn’t ya’ know it. Along comes Rob and Tammi (with an I). Gosh they’re annoying. It starts right away. “What are you doing? Are you by yourself? Do you go to movies on your own? Doesn’t that big house of yours feel empty when you get home? Don’t you want to be married? Are you gay? . . . ”
My focus right now is to “Get out of my head and into purposeful action with real people – without attachment to the outcome.”
