(7) Major M. in NC: The Journeymen mentoring project for teenage boys is a great program.  I got involved as a mentor last summer and recommend it for boys and men.  The annual Father’s Day brunch is an excellent chance to learn more about the program.  (It’s what got me turned on.)  If you know of a man who might want to be a mentor or someone with a teenage boy who might want to be involved, please feel free to forward this on to them.  I could also probably answer questions for you or them.

(9) Rodney S. in NC: Tonight I had the extraordinary privilege to photograph the final dress rehearsal for “Incongruence” by Carla Pridgen presented by Different Strokes! Performing Arts Collective.I could tell you it is an amazing show. I could tell you the script is of the utmost quality and the intertwining narratives are solid, thought provoking and deeply moving. I could tell you the performances are so visceral, enthralling, authentic and well executed that at times I forgot they were actors… and my friends. I could tell you that this is an important piece that everyone should… must see it. I could tell you all of this and more. And while all true…It wouldn’t be enough.I don’t have the words. And I have no doubt, that in the days and even weeks to come as I continue to process this show, it will become even harder to define. What I must say, is that more than seeing this play – I felt this play. I experienced it. And I sincerely wish everyone I know and have yet to meet will experience it as well.Congratulations to the playwright, director, cast and crew and Different Strokes! Performing Arts Collective for creating this show, and giving it to the world. I am honored to be one of the first to see it, and capture it. Opening night (tomorrow) is sold out. If I have any say in the matter – every show will be sold out.Please get your tickets now.
