Really hard to believe but my book "Through A Sober Lens" just hit number 2 as an Amazon Best Seller in Landscape Photography. There are tens of thousands of books and I am so happy. We also hit the top 25 in the categories of alcoholism and addiction.

The Vineyard Serenity Calendar is back for 2019-2020!!!!
I made, and released a video 2-days ago announcing the 2019-2020 Vineyard Serenity Calendar. I attached a link to the 4-minute video below.
The calendar will be used to raise money for Misty Meadows Equine Learning Center. I hope to raise $15,000 for their amazing programs.
I run a “Preorder” to help fund the project. You can see images of the front, back and some middle sections. It runs from September 2019 – December 2020 – a full sixteen months. The photographs were selected in voting here on Facebook. I also include some inspirational thoughts each month that I hope adds meaning to the photographs. We are including pictures and letters from students who have benefited from their experiences with horses. Whether the child is autistic or has cerebral palsy, miracles happen here on a daily basis.
-The calendar is 14x11 that folds open to 14x22
-The images and paper are of high quality.
-The calendar boxes are large and allow the writing of appointments and notes
-Inspirational thoughts by me each month
-Printed and delivered in May to preorder customers
-In stores on Martha’s Vineyard this summer
For the honor of holding your money for 2 months in funding the project I will raffle five 18x24 framed prints of this photograph of the Edgartown Light at sunrise. The five, signed prints, will be limited editions, and all who preorder are eligible for the drawing. Five people will win a free, framed print valued at $400.
The preorder is available at
This is the link to my 4-minute video.
Please let me know if you have any questions. I really appreciate your help!!

These two amazing people sat with me last week and recorded a 30-minute program on MVTV to talk about their loss and steps we can take to prevent other parents from experiencing the same terrible outcome. This is the latest episode of our weekly program "Addiction - Got a minute" that is described in this week's Martha's Vineyard Times. I also included the Youtube link to watch the program. Very powerful and I want to thank both of them for the courage to do this. These two photos are of Colin and Jolene who died way too young - Colin of a Heroin overdose in his dorm room in 2016; and Jolene drunk driving at the age of 17, 20 years ago. I included a poem written by Jolene before she passed that shows the anxiety kids face. We need to find a way to prevent this.

WMVY Radio Guest Host
I really enjoyed my show on WMVY Night Casts. I was challenged to come up with nine songs that captured my journey from alcoholism to recovery. It was a very cathartic process. I consider this program one of the most meaningful things I have ever done.
The folks at mvyradio were kind enough to distill down the 2 hour Night Cast show, to the 67 minutes with my 9 songs and my interview with Laurel Redington Whitaker, If you were unable to listen last night at 10 PM, here it is. Playing the music, and thinking about these songs really helped me in ways I didn't expect. I appreciate the folks at MVY Radio doing this. I hope you enjoy it. Just click and listen. Have a great night
