I've got two quotes for you. :)

 

Don't worry about what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and do that. Because what the world needs are people who have come alive. — Howard Thurman

 

Use what talent you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best. — Henry Van Dyke

Christine says:

She is lovely to people and you (I) get the feeling that she actually likes them and isn't just pretending. She is funny, insightful and very cute and I am completely happy to have her in my internet life. And she takes the best chair pictures ever.

Emdot, Marya is the cutest of cuteness, but dont let that cute exterior fool you under that thick layer of cuteness is a cutey, its time for my medicine nurse :P

em is the zeitgeist of flickr. if it hadn't been for her, i wouldn't have stuck around long enough to finally get this site. oh, and don't miss her arches.

emdot used to steal my lunch money off me on a daily basis. She'd pick me up by my ankles and shake me until the money fell out of my pockets. I failed history because of all the brain cells she killed off. I'm not sure what happened over the last few years, she used to be such a nasty person. Now, well, watc… Read more

Her niceness may kill you.

One day on Utata some time back, I kinda publicly tricked Emdot into making me a contact. Oh boY am I glad I did! her photos constantly amaze and delight me. Her wisdom has no end. Emdot and her photographs make the world a better place. "insert snippet of poem here"

emdot is a superhero. I've yet to see her wear her underpants on the outside, but I know they're there.

Ohhhhhmmmyyygggaaawwwdddd! It's Marya!!!! I was wondering who this was. I love, love, love, love this girl! She sweet and sexy with a brain and an eye to boot.......

What can I say that the other people here haven't already said she is all of those things in spades, eM (as i enjoy calling her) is a master stroke of a person, an and damn observant photographer too boot! I consider myself lucky to have "meet" her here on flickr.

September 16, 2005

If Marya were a spice, she would be cinnamon. Good for the heart, providing warmth and color, a lingering sweetness, exotic and flavorful, without which our lives would be tasteless indeed.

As much by accident as by intent, and as much because of her eye as because of her heart, Marya makes me smile, laugh, think, and create. Like the sage says: to know her is to love her. Her world through the pinprick of her camera is a glimpse at the greenest of lives, fresh and rooted and depp. Not depp, stop t… Read more

She has the highest [provoked smiles and giggles and laughters per word] ratio. And I am smiling all the time 'cause of her. And it is uncontrollable. And I don't want to resist. Ever! ^.^

June 26, 2005

There is no one more generous *and* omnipresent on flickr. It is both remarkable and a delight every time I see her face and words appear.

My favorite Flickr pal, her stream gets better and better, her comments are the quickest, if you see a cool stream here, she beat you to it, she has guts, style and is a guru to me. Marya is the best, accept no substitute, queen of flickr. Yes she has a pretty little stream!

There are few things you can be sure of in the world. One of them is this: emdot will make you smile. It's not just that she's clever and funny and altogether charming, it's not just that she takes photographs that are somehow both wonderfully complex AND organically simple, and it's not just that she has an irresistibly impish grin (though all those things help). This is a woman who truly enjoys people. It's impossible not to enjoy her back.

Emdot's photos engage in all things that are real. This seems a fitting combination with her personality and attitude toward people and life. Often, I find myself wishing I was actually standing in the places of her photos, enjoying the fantastic moods and moments that they capture.

emdot is one of the few few people whose posts on the 'what i'm listening to right now thread' are actually worth chasing up! yay for marya's good taste in music!

emdot has such a truly great photostream, she has simply inspired me to try to take better pictures, and I thank her.

Okay, so here's to piling on... Marya is about pictures and words and wonder and joy and empathy and friendship and humanness and so much more. So much more.

Okay, so here's to piling on... Marya is about pictures and words and wonder and joy and empathy and friendship and humanness and so much more. So much more. She is about articulating what the heart and soul hold most dearly and what this world needs so sorely. She is a warm ocean breeze rushing against our faces; a cool, refreshing tide rushing over our feet. This is not mere hyperbole -- the testimonials on this page are indeed evidence of that, evidence that this is one person who surely has her karmic shit together. As far as I'm concerned, evolution could end with m. (Hmmm... But then, that would make it evolutiom.)
