This website is where I, Danny Schweers, welcome you to my world, a beautiful joyous place. Welcome! Please be careful to avoid the thorns.
Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — I try to write about such things.
I am compelled to write. I cannot sleep otherwise. God help me! God help us who want to make life better.
I am provoked!
I see others who are provoked. Like me, they want to make things better but they often seem to make life worse. Am I better than them? Can I actually make things better? I say missives, not missiles! I say peace and pixels! Occasionally I succeed.
Yes, there are images here in addition to all my words. How could it be otherwise? I have been photographing my world for many decades. My more purely photographic work appears on another website — DannySchweers.com.
Since 2007, I have written weekly prayers to go with photos, emailing them to subscribers. You can subscribe, too! My writing slowed early in 2023, but I am writing these again as of November 1, 2023. These posts include the best of my subscribers’ comments. Click here to see the latest prayers on this website.
You can find an archive of my earlier work — 764 posts — on my PhotoPrayer.com website. I especially want to thank Westminster Presbyterian Church in Wilmington, Delaware for supporting me in this work. They have been faithful since the beginning.
In the spring of 2023, my wife and I and our dog took a road trip across the USA and back, mostly driving the back roads, driving the byways favored by William Least Heat Moon in his books about not taking the fastest or most direct route. Click here to see my comments along the way.
