NOTE TO READER: THIS IS A LIVING PAGE.
Which means it is a work in progress. It will change as my life shifts. There are many layers to who I am. This page will reveal most of those layers.
This web site is a personal reflection of my creative side. There are links to other sites that I manage. I have tried to keep things per web site relevant to the subject at hand.
This is currently a long page. Someday it will be shorter.
I met a Zen Master monk one day, he told me
“It is better to seek the highest self for the day and tell of its qualities.
Live simply, guide simply, teach simply.
Do not become yesterday’s slave.”
He told me my mind was stuck in the “abiding place” and only I could move it forward.
I have been accused through much of my life as being a recluse. Now at 60+, I think “they” were right. I have and still work best in solitude. Minimal distractions are good for the mind and soul. I learned how to quiet my mind and then create. Forever a fan of simplicity, I am now comfortable with its meaning.
I’m not that good at promoting my own work, it causes a bottleneck in my system.
I have worn the title Photographer for over 40 years, with an emphasis on wildlife, I write about the experience and share the images here on this web site.
I write stories, essays, and articles. A few have been published. I find the most comfort writing:
So where does one find my work you ask?

A different layer of me.
As with many individuals, there are several layers of my creativity. The hardest part was finding balance with the creative and business/work side of me. For years during the time I traveled as a wildlife photographer, I was also a web developer and web site designer. Wearing that hat brought me both good and not so good. Especially, for my health.
But I discovered in my attempt to dismantle that side of me there was still the urge to create. Design simplistic websites for people. And so, as far as I have come in my life changes I have yet to throw that side of me away for good. From time to time I do design and develop a web site theme and offer it to the world in hopes someone will appreciate it and use it for good intended purposes. I love the clean, minimalist style of web pages that showcase the content more than the advertising. It is difficult to bury all the years and years of technology knowledge I obtained and therefore, I share it with the world when I sense the need. But I strive for the SIMPLICITY of a thing. I do this in all the things I create, including my life.
Where might one found this extension of me?
For now, because my intentions are to someday pass this torch on to someone else when I have emptied my cup of it, here is a living list posted below:
Deborah Kunzie – the place I share my life and creative life as a photographer. I am a photographer because I want to help educate and inspire others about how beautiful life is.
Sunday Morning Poetry – a small hidden place on the web where I post poetry in whatever form it comes to me.
Minimalist Child Themes – sharing my thoughts and “how to” create a more pleasant experience for your visitors by creating a cleaner, uncluttered web site.
