Jungle Talk

Are we hard wired to run a sustainable planet? And are we accountable to the entire world that we live in? For me the Jungle is something made up of so many fascinating elements; a journey of intriguing possibilities. That kind of sounds like "life" on planet-johnson.

Can I travel with a presence that allows my footprint to add value to the world that you live in while "capturing moments" that tell a compelling story? Karma is a belief that all of your actions will have equal reprecussions, affecting you and I. This journey is a search for some balance, a little discovery and hopefully some visual poetry?

This blog will humbly attempt to see my world through the experience of TRAVEL, photos and sincere examination of an experential and visual karma. And I will find a way to incorporate some positive travel experience into that karma with the perspective of a Digital Camera. Photography and writing have become my "love affair" with life on planet-johnson. Hopefully I can share my passions for the best of this crazy world!

Please join in and welcome to the jungle!

The Truth is out There!

    "If you can't annoy somebody with what you write, I think there's little point in writing."  Kingsely Amis

Where have all the journalists gone? Well, Greg Palast is the best example of truth that keeps on giving though he`s rarely welcome in the  USA where "money talks" and the truth of the day is the latest quote from Paris whats her name? The major Media in North America is guilty of neglecting the truth and replacing it with a vacuum only comparable to the space between George W`S ears. But Palast (working for the BBC) champions a truth that is sorely cast in the direction of corruption in its lowest form. This is a truly sad story about the "Vultures" who steal American dollars intended for African "Aides Relief". A burr on the ass of social justice.

For all the good that the Bonos, Stephen Lewis`s, the Bill Clinton`s mightily try to accomplish for a tragic African Aides dilemma this seems to be a "circle jerk" of crass capitalism that is frustrating to imagine. If CNN did a serious piece on this it could make a difference. But they`re more interested in whether Hilary Clinton likes "diamonds or pearls"? This was a key question in a recent Democratic Leader`s debate.  Now thats serious journalism!

"To me a real patriot is like a real friend. Who's your real friend? It's the person who tells you the truth. That's who my real friends are. So, you know, I think as far as our country goes, we need more people who will do that"  Bill Maher       Karma and truth or diamonds and pearls?
