This is the third and final photo in my "Ancients" Series. The first two photos centered around the reemergence of an ancient Assyrian goddess and her struggle to adapt to the frenetic pace of the modern world, all while being invisible to most humans.

Here, we find her pallid and broken, covered in the blood of her people. She feels helpless and can only watch as they are murdered, kidnapped and cast out of the lands in which they've lived for thousands of years. Once invisible to the human eye, she realizes as they reach out to touch her, that some of them can see her right before the moment of their deaths. She wants nothing more than to look away, but she senses that her presence comforts the ill-fated, and so she stays. Someone must bear witness.

The elaborate palace in which she was once worshipped has been bulldozed, and the faces of the winged bulls that guarded its gates, cherished by humankind for centuries, have been smashed to pieces. They, along with countless other historical treasures, are forever lost. Destroyed by men hellbent on the destruction and eradication of her people.

She feels herself slowly fading back into the infinite darkness. Or is it a retreat? But she cannot go.

Not yet.

Someone must bear witness.

"The years of war have ravaged the face of the Old World. Dynasties and empires have fallen; old freedoms have been reborn; revolutionary systems of government have arisen. But it is probable that, in proportion to its size, no community has undergone trials and upheavals to equal those of the little nation church which bears the name of the Assyrians."

"Why do we feel compelled to trace our roots? Those names in the family tree are just that: names. And yet the kinship we feel to them is powerful.

Does the fact that we're rooted in history make us feel more secure in our present?

But what if our family trees are more like vines, twining aimlessly throughout the ages?" - Henry Morgan, Forever

"It takes years as a woman to unlearn what you have been taught to be sorry for."  - Amy Poehler
Criticizing female behavior in the workplace without addressing the reasons for that behavior is unhelpful. It takes years as a woman to unlearn what you have been taught to be sorry for.  - Amy Poehler Minda Zetlin, writing for Business Insider, interviewed Wendy Capland ,  an Executive Coach and Author, who listed 12 ways women unknowingly sabotage their success.   The top three: Using minimizing language, apologizing and...

Story
Tagline
Efficiency Lover. Photog. Policy Wonk. J.D.
Introduction
I am an attorney who loves photography, public policy and women's issues (just to name a few). I'm a hard worker (I worked full-time during both undergrad and law school), and I've worked for elected officials in all three branches of government. In addition to my policy background, I've run a successful photography business since 2011.

One of my broad goals is to help enable the modern workplace to better reflect the needs and desires of the modern family through public policy, individual private initiatives or both. The modern workplace is still largely structured around the false assumption that only one spouse is working and that the decision for both spouses to work is one of choice rather than economic necessity.

The United States is the only industrialized nation that has not yet implemented policies to ensure the long-term economic well-being of its workforce. Strong families leads to strong companies. Strong companies leads to strong communities. Strong communities leads to a strong national economy that will be well prepared to compete in the global marketplace. It's good business. It's good public policy.
