Five Directions

Steeped in the Fires of Natural Wonder

Designs of spiral, ribbon and wave shapes in natural and intentional materials have contemplative, restorative qualities. Rhythms appear in shape, texture and placement, gining weight to resonance. Form and function meld to provoke or elicit. Each of these elements play in Penny Batelli's landscape (more)

Dale Bruder's Blog
Tao Time Programs
Tao Time Blog


In 2012 I returned to magazine writing. This phase begins with Tucson Natural Awakening Magazine. My byline is on thirty two articles and I authored five newsbriefs.

These days I have realized a friendlier voice in my writing. My writing is informative, insightful and entertaining. I want my readers to know and understand what is available, how is it possible and where they can experience it.

I've written articles and opinions for City Magazine (Edited & Published by Chuck Bowden and Dick Vonier) in the '80", for Inside Tucson Business when Sheila Storm served as editor in the mid 1990's. When first finding my Tucson footing in the very early 80's I wrote for a pre-Tucson Weekly publication Tucson Examiner. In Milwaukee, Wisconsin I published regularly in CitySide between 1977 and 1980. My journalism in those days ranged from feature articles on artists, editorials, regional informative to investigative/researched cover stories. I first dipped into magazine writing in the early 70's when I found a friendly editor in a weekly small town newspaper The Oceana County News in Whitehall, Michigan.

I have two wordpress blogs, Coach Bruder and Tao Time as well as publish two newsletters periodically on both topics. See Newsletter Archives for a collection. Subscriptions are available at no cost at my website dalebruder.com.

Enjoy the Artist Spotlights.

Vibration at the Heart of Sound Shifting

Tryshe Dhevney knows sound as a healing modality from personal experience.(more)

Crystal Sound Healing

How do we explain the haunting, penetrating tones of crystal singing bowls? With their pure tone frequencies and the innate transformative properties of crystal itself, it is no wonder we lack the words to describe the experience. The droning tones seem to awaken a deep remembering, touching the very essence of our higher and lighter nature. (more)

An Artist’s Intuitive Way

Artist Jeanne Fellow says, “I work in an intuitive way now, even though I have an art education,” while sitting amid walls filled with lighted sconces. “I started out doing a lot of technical pen and ink illustrations and could copy things very well, leading me to think I didn’t have any real art inside.” Then something happened. “Colors began to speak to me” (more)

A Music Man for All Seasons

He has performed with many of today’s leading musicians around the world and is perpetually on tour throughout the United States, Canada and other countries.

An Artistic Point of View

Drawing on his years as an art teacher, Steven Bye embraced the infotainment model of transferring knowledge. twenty-five years ago he advised a student struggling with a creative block to imagine Picasso on a skateboard. "I always faced the challenge of finding ways to inspire my (more)

Whimsical Realism

"Where does your art come from?" is a MacGuffin question at which every artist balks. Neda Contreras is no different. Her still life oils - juxtapositions of skeletons, birds, cats, dogs, old cars, plants, fruits vegetable nd pottery on beaches - are her own making. (more)

Developing the Camera Eye

Greg McCown's passion for photography began on a tourist boat circumnavigating the Hawaiian Islands. "I was awed by the sunset, the sky and the ocean.' says the photographer. "Never gave camera's much thought, but something had me pick up my wife's camera, frame an image in the viewfinder and start taking pictures." This moment starter McCown on a (more)

Quest to Come Home

In the mystical forest of the mind, a child opens her eyes to see inner beauty in expression and stance, surrendering to the light that comes down through her to canvas, paper and stone.

An Inner Journey to Outward Mastery

A unique artistic vision, formed in the primordial forests of Old Europe, has settled in the Sonoran desert. "Nature, inner self, art and music are my medicines."

Eye of the Storm

A deteriorated downtown, vacated by commerce, abandoned by political will, ripe for artists to take over. Reads like a tag line for an '80's the-kids-are-alright movie. It happened right here in the Old Pueblo in the days when the zeitgeist was devoted to urbanizing the valley from mountain range to mountain range. (more)

Waking the Spirit

Moises Orozco takes his art seriously, body and soul. Having stepped off percipitous heights to be reborn with new insights in life, love and the material world, Orozco continues to create multidimensional images out of steel, aluninum, titanium and recycled fabricated metal.
