The biker is fearless, steadfast, trusting, and not dwelling on the separation of ‘names.’ No room for analysis here, no way! Nothing but heart. :-)

“We found you, as We found most men, worshipping names which they mention during the days of their life, and with which they occupy themselves. No sooner do the Bearers of these names appear, however, than they repudiate them, and turn upon their heels. Thus have We found you, and thus have We reckoned up your actions and borne witness to all your doings in this day. Know ye that God will not, in this day, accept your thoughts, nor your remembrance of Him, nor your turning towards Him, nor your devotions, nor your vigilance, unless ye be made new in the estimation of this Servant, could ye but perceive it.”

Alisa is an Executive Assistant for the Vice Chancellor for Communications and Public Affairs at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. As a Baha’i, she serves her local community through hosting artistic prayer devotionals and thoughtful dialogues centered around the needs of the current times. She prefers to shoot still scenes that invoke feeling, and her favorite living thing to photograph is children.
