This unfinished sculpture is by my friend, #AlvinMarshall #whois #Diné #Navajo! What many of you, who are my friends and supporters don’t realize is that I sell & trade Alabaster stone to #NativeAmerican stone carvers throughout the #Southhwest. This is how I make a living to survive and it allows me to travel. I also do this for my family because they ask me to and so do many of the carvers. As long as my family is are able to get the stone, the #Alabaster will continue to lead me to the people who I am supposed to meet. I realize the importance behind “why” I do this. The stone is sacred in many ways because of the human relationships and friendships that form as a result of the stone. The stone also allows me to travel and capture beautiful photos of the American #Southwest, otherwise, I could not afford to travel. I have a lot of respect for the rock; it is special as you can see the spirit of it in Albin’s sculpture. August is the month when I sell the most stone in #NewMexico because of the upcoming #IndianMarket in #SantaFe. I’ve been busy the last few days as I prepare to bring about 4.5 tons of Alabaster out to Albuquerque, Santa Fe and #Taos. I look forward to meeting up with my friends, @kiltica and John Suazo at Taos Pueblo. I’m leaving Friday morning and will be on he road for the next several days until the work is done! #Nm #abq #golobos #nativeart #native #lifeways #truth #art #utahphotographer ~ via Instagram: ift.tt/2a9QbeR

This is me in the moment in all my glory…feeling a little stressed & worried about.where to make my next move and how. I’ve worked so hard to move towards my goals and dreams but sometimes I feel a bit discouraged like I’m not getting anywhere despite my best efforts. I want to succeed; I want to please. So right now, I’m just trying to figure everything out and maybe I need have some more faith… Photo credit @joecow #myself #nate #utahphotographer #contemplation ~ via Instagram: ift.tt/29RmMWr
