Film – A Portrait of Nature

The small film can be found here, be sure to follow for continued updates!


The politicians of the world, our elected representatives, our dually appointed ministers, cabinet officials, secretaries and the rest of the ruling, political elites of the world have let the people down. They have stained the high ideals of their office. They have pillaged the coffers rightfully belonging to the people. They have lined their pockets. They have enriched themselves while the rest of us starve and yearn for a meal, or a place to sleep for the night. They sign accords, and laud their great accomplishments. But they have done little. This is not a portrait of nature. But of nature deformed, unfinished, and grotesque. We have allowed this to happen. Perhaps the day will come when we will say, no more. No more. No more.

Hard work – what does it mean? It’s a phrase we throw around often, perhaps haphazardly without recognizing the deep meaning behind the very simple phrase. What is hard work? What does it mean? When a person does that which is difficult, without complaint, when they get up in the morning and lift themselves from bootstraps facing insurmountable odds for a higher cause – be it their communal values, or their families, or to secure a better tomorrow for themselves. Hard work is a value which we extol often, but we often lay the wreath at the feet of those who are undeserving. Remember the mothers or fathers married or otherwise , doing the hard work of raising a family, remember the workers, native or migrant in the factories or mills, in the mines or in the fields. Remember the servers, in the bars, restaurants and diners at odd hours of the night, remember the soldiers serving overseas defending our shores. Remember those who are doing the hard work of keeping the nation moving, keeping the wheels going, keeping hope, duty, values and meaning alive.

There is a value in work. One that we can learn from those that have come before us. A sense of duty, of pride, and of civic responsibility. When we work, often we think that we are working for ourselves or for our families, but this is not so. In truth, we are working for so much more. We are working as parts of a greater whole, we cannot neglect or undervalue ourselves for if one cog goes awry of the great wheels of human civilization, then the whole of it all falls apart. We each have a role to play, and it is in the past that we can look to a higher ideal, a greater sense of community, and a greater purpose to play in our fellow citizens lives, in the country and in the world.

Cities have a long and tried history in the world. They have been at the forefront of great and tumultuous societal change and they have borne the brunt of some of the worst excesses’ society has managed to conjure up. But above all the city has managed to act as as beacon the world over for opportunity and for inclusion. If America is the country that acts as the melting pot of the peoples of the world, then the city is the microcosm of that revolutionary idea – advancing the aims of liberal democracy, and inclusion. In the city, there is a hope for a greater cosmopolitan ideal for all, one that those who are blessed to eat of its fruit, would hope to share with the greater world.
