they pasture flocks they have stolen."
When I got the email from Teri saying she was in town and wanted to shoot, the answer was naturally Yes...
She is an incredible actress, having appeared on The Walking Dead, but I had no idea what we would be shooting. But I had been pondering this notion of "leaders who move boundary stores." Historically this was tied to issues of injustice, corruption and thievery.
So I thought why not do an image...of putting it back?

And also I was waiting for some new inspiration. These things come in seasons....
“If you do away with the yoke of oppression,
with the pointing finger and malicious talk,
and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
then your light will rise in the darkness,
and your night will become like the noonday.
The Lord will guide you always;
he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail.
Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins
and will raise up the age-old foundations;
you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls,
Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.
