These are photographs, paintings, music, and memories that set off that certain spark. Overall, I am a blessed individual and only act the cynic when discussing religion. The beauty of the natural world and the human mind inspire me to believe again. Email me at: jjlchaffey@msn.com

Happy 100th birthday Peter Cushing (26 May,1913 - 11 August, 1994)
“Since Helen passed on I can’t find anything; the heart, quite simply, has gone out of everything. Time is interminable, the loneliness is almost unbearable and the only thing that keeps me going is the knowledge that my dear Helen and I will be united again some day. To join Helen is my only ambition. You have my permission to publish that… really, you know dear boy, it’s all just killing time. Please say that.”
