Welcome! A few years ago, I discovered an application that artists employ in their works to bring cultural awareness to their audiences. Having discerned this semiotic theory that applies to literature, music, art, film, and the media, I have devoted the blog, "Theory of Iconic Realism" to explore this theory. The link to the publisher of my book is below. If you or your university would like a copy of this book for your library or if you would like to review it for a scholarly journal, please contact the Edwin Mellen Press at the link listed below. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Innovation: A Call to Action

An innovative idea is a call to action to make a difference in this world. A brilliant person once shared with me the significance of a single leaf used as a metaphor for the human condition. Since transformation originates from a single notion, I thought this little poem is one that may contribute a genesis of consciousness.  

I took this photo in St. Stephen's Green, Dublin, Ireland.


One maple tree leaf in my garden
 
Be Leaf 
Here
remains the leaf
not insignificant
silent, 
well formed
turned over and over.
Suspended,
it resides 
in belief
sublime.
