Have you cried…an ugly, nasty cry? Seeking healthy manhood!

Have you really cried…I mean ugly cry. The cry that you want no one to see, yet it feels so much better after it is all over.

I only witnessed my father cry one time, and I will never forget it. I was so confused, did not understand…but watched mhim never talk about that day ever again. 

Joseph Gelfer writes in his latest exploration titled “We Need to ‘Undefine’ Masculinity” and exploration of gender roles and how we define this idea of what it means to be a man.

The 534 Club: Necessary Climb To Find Clean Water in Haiti

Water: The 534 Club
I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean… (Ezekiel 36:25).
Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. (John 7:37)

I did it…I have joined the 534 club in Cange, Haiti. Actually…I walked these stairs twice. I was nervous traveling back to Cange to capture our water story. I was anxious; anxious that I would not be able to climb these steps given our last trip. These steps almost got the best of me.

Remembering Hunting Island – 2006 Photography #Canon

I was looking through the archives and came across these images I captured in 2006 and 2007. I captured this image from the south beach of Hunting Island, overlooking the inlet with the bridge leading to Fripp Island in the background. We used to walk this beach every evening since I was a little boy. My father used to capture the sunset across this inlet, each image the beach has receded a little more. We tore down the cabin in the fall of 2008 because the water was underneath the house. I captured this image with my #Canon #20D.

Building upon Richard Furman’s legacy…George has big shoes to fill!

I spent the day at The Duke Endowment and found this statue of Mr. Richard Furman, the name sake of Furman University. Sarah’s great-great grandfather was named in his honor, Richard Furman Landrum. We named our son George Landrum Rettew to honor the Landrum name, her grandmother’s maiden name. Sarah’s grandmother was a Landrum, attended Furman University in the 1930’s, and spent years documenting the history of the Landrum’s including the family relationship with the Furman family.
