Are you a listener of any of the 90.1 FM KPFT Houston radio shows? They are currently running a fundraiser to pay for their new transmitter to replace the old one that no longer operates at full capacity. Right now they are 25% toward goal. Won't you help keep independent radio in our city?
Filling the gap in funding for a solid state transmitter for KPFT | Crowdfunding is a democratic way to support the fundraising needs of your community. Make a contribution today!

My father, Martin Elkort, has donated one of his photographs for auction to http://proof.org.

Bringing together photographers, documentarians, academics, and activists, PROOF creates exhibitions, publications, and on-site activities in nations with some of the world’s most troubled histories.

 PROOF’s exhibitions tell untold stories of acts of moral courage and document injustice and human rights abuses.

Support a great cause by bidding on his work at https://paddle8.com/work/martin-elkort/67713-black-cat-walks or the work of others who have donated at http://paddle8.com/auction/proof/

Please consider supporting my talented family member and a terrific charity bringing music to the schools.
Dawn Noelle writes her own brand of soulful, guitar-driven tunes that get under your skin and then surprise you with their depth. With strong vocals suited to pop rock, Dawn counts Michelle Branch, Sheryl Crow, and Kara DioGuardi among her influences as well as Texas musicians Terri Hendrix and Shellee Coley. Resilence, joy, and hope are woven into the fabric of the music on Dawn's new CD "Stories to Tell" which was born from the idea that songs...

My sister, Alicia Elkort wrote this beautiful poem about our grandparents. Memories can take many shapes; stories, poems, art and even smells.
My grandmother used to make these amazing cookies for special occasions. They are called Franz Joseph Cookies and supposedly took their name from the famous Emperor of Austria. I'm not really sure the back story on how my grandma got this recipe but it was a family favorite and one that had ...

Growing up with my father, photographer Martin Elkort Photography, I learned to see the world as small story vignettes. We resonate with stories because it gives context and meaning to the world around us and helps us understand the role we play in our own life. No surprise I went into my own version of storytelling via video.

Slate.com wrote a wonderful piece about Martin Elkort's work and chose some nice images that are often not the first ones people go to when sharing his work.

Early in Martin Elkort’s career, the New York photographer would walk out of his home and adjust his camera settings to prepare for a day of street photography, with the comparable success rate of an amateur meteorologist lifting a finger to test the weather. There were days when he would come...

Have you considered adding an ethical will to your succession planning strategy?
The writer of the ethical will has an opportunity to express what often goes unsaid—this also provides families the chance to know their loved ones in a unique way, and, it may offer meaning and a lasting legacy.
