"Not that most photographers don't want to experiment, but sometimes they need a little nudge. I just spent a week with a group of artists in Northern California, who were doing exactly that. And I think their stories are interesting because I watched them over the course of the week, as they decided okay. This is normally what I do. This is what I'm going to do this week. Or this is what I'm going to try this week. Then they be a little unsure about it. And then they think about it. And then they try it. And, you know, the whole process to me was fascinating. I just loved it. And then, of course, at the end of the week, I got to see the results of all of this trial and error, and they were fabulous. It was exciting. They were excited to present these pictures, and we were excited to be viewing them commenting and asking about how they did it. And I think all of us learned quite a bit during this whole process, not only learning by doing the experimentation itself, but then by learning from others who are trying things, and then they showed us how they did them. So this is a lot of fun. So I'm going to do today is share 5 stories with you of people who stepped outside of their comfort zone with their photography and what they did. The first one Scott I'm primarily a street photographer. So Scott generally packs a compact RICO GR when he heads out the door. He has the ricoh GR from a few iterations ago, and he still shoots with that he loves street photography he loves how the GR performs when you're out and about how it doesn't intimidate other people, how it's compact so you can carry it anywhere. It's easy to shoot with. You know, all those things that we love about that camera, Scott love that, too. But when he came to this workshop, he was packing a FujiFilm mirrorless camera with a grip, right? That just the camera itself that he had a grip on it. And he was packing a telephoto lens that was I believe 100 to 400 millimeters on an APSC sensor. So this was a hefty beast. He was lugging around. And I remember on the first day, this is even before the workshop. So we arrived on Monday. You know, everyone kind of gets there in the afternoon and we're hanging out and unpacking and getting ready for the workshop to start on Tuesday. And where we were staying, it was fabulous because we had this deck outside of headquarters really great deck that looked out over tamales space. So there were lots of geese out there. There were egrets. There were all sorts of stuff hanging around that we could just photograph while getting our camera set up and all that. So Scott had mentioned to his friends back home that there were two le Elk in the point race area where we were going to be. And so they challenged him to bring home an Elk picture, which I thought was really cool. So when I first saw Scott, he was out on this back deck overlooking the bay. And he was kind of fooling around with this camera. I mean, the one with the big lands. And the grip and everything. And just kind of trying to get comfortable with it. And I asked him, I go, wow, that's a really nice rig and he goes, yeah, I never shoot with it. You know, I'm usually doing street photography with the ricoh GR, and I thought, well, if I was ever going to learn how to shoot with this combination, this workshop would be it. And then he told me about the challenge of bringing home an Elk shot. So I was looking at it and he was looking at and it just looked so kind of awkward in his hands as we were out there back on the wooden deck. And I said, well, you know what? If you were ever going to get comfortable with this combination, this week is going to be it. You know, this week is going to be where you have a project. You have a goal and you have lots of opportunity to use it. And he had a nice backpack for it and, you know, he was ready to go. So sure enough, every day that we went out, he had his backpack. He had that camera lens combination in there. He pulled it out and was shooting with it. I never saw the ricoh GR at all. The first day we were a little challenged, we did find a herd of Elk, but it was really foggy. We were out on this Peninsula and they were kind of hidden in the fog. We'd see them kind of come out a little bit. But it wasn't the most ideal shooting situation. So he worked it a bit. He worked the situation. And I was kind of thinking, wow, I don't know, this is not going to be great when I go home, you know, I'm going to get a lot of ribbing. So it was on the third day, I believe, and I had seen while scouting, I had seen some cows Elk out in this one area that they don't normally hang out. And it was an area where we were going to have lunch. We were coming back from lunch and Scott was in the car and he said, well, if you happen to see any Elk dropping around, do you mind if we stop because they still need to get that shot? And by now he was pretty comfortable with his camera and lens combo.

"Yeah, it is. Good morning. Good morning. Everybody in a good mood. Everybody waking up, a little bit of extra bounce in their step. Now I guess they're back, baby. Back on their games. Told yourself, now you're gonna take a victory lap. I told you they wouldn't win big last night. I don't know where you call you saying they'd win big. You did say, don't worry about it, they'll win. Yeah, I did say it would be double digits. I must have missed that. There's no question I said it. Somewhere in there. Somewhere in there. But Johnny's got it, Mark. I'm sure of it. Were you impressed by the outside of the second quarter, were you impressed by the real totality of the win? Yeah, the energy of the wind was great. Michael Porter junior coming out hot and starting hot. Every time I don't know about you, but every time Gordon touches the ball, I'm like hot potato, give it up, give it up, give it up, give it up. Garrett Gordon can not shoot. I mean, I know relatively speaking. I mean, I know we're like 30 seconds in. You're already, I know an explaining to the negative. Right. I know in a game of horse, he'd probably get me with a couple of letters before I finished him. But that guy can't shoot. Every time he touches the ball, please don't shoot, please don't. But do these play great defense. I thought he was I thought he was exceptional. I just don't want him to ever shoot the ball game. And then criticisms are, I just think that I think that Jamal Murray needs to figure out who Jamal Murray is. Like, you can't keep up with the Joneses. You know, you're not as good as Joker, you're not as good as Booker, you're not as good as Durant. You're just not. And sometimes I feel like he gets like, you mentioned it the other day. The hero bowl aspect of his game. Until the game was out of hand in the fourth, then he loosened up and played really he's knocked down shots and everything else. He puts too much pressure on himself to be the guy. You're not the guy, just be the facilitator. He admitted to his early game struggles after the game. You know, I'm not trying to force out there, so I think my spots have been doing that my whole career and how much I put everybody in the right spot and today everybody played really well off the sets that we ran, so now I know the game's gonna come. I'm not trying to force and sometimes it's just the game calls for to be honest with you. We thought about this yesterday. We talked about the idea that he and jokic would come out and try to facilitate more, get more guys involved. And they did try to do that. You referenced MPJ getting off early. Gordon got off early. Bruce Brown was fantastic. I was. As soon as he came into the game, but yo kitchen is just yogic, it's very easy for him to play in the flow of the game. But I think you're right. I think that there is still an element that Murray struggles with. In that situation. And but luckily, he got it going later. But the story of this game and Michael Malone, if he could talk, he can't talk anymore. Poor guy. Just losing his voice. He needs a loss. He does. Give that man a soccer. I like the ricoh. He needs one of those. Give him an endorsement deal. But the defense was fantastic. And you know, that's just about chickaboo for Michael below. You can see the nuggets playing really good defense, but you talk about adjustments and what you have to do and as much as James Marilyn wanted Michael Malone fired at halftime. Michael Malone, brilliantly coach game, out coach Monte Williams, what they did was the idea was we're going to pick Devin Booker up a little bit earlier in the possession. Do we have talked about that doing that? Make him work more of the floor. Take about 8, 9 seconds off the shot clock before they could really get into anything. And just and just make it more difficult. And knock him around a little bit more. It wasn't the full Jordan rules, okay? It wasn't the book of rules, but they clearly put more pressure on him more of a body on a more attention to him earlier up the court earlier in the shop possession. And it worked. You saw Booker and Durant. Yeah, they got their points. Booker was got his 28, but you want near 80% shooting last night. He was 8 for 19. Durant was ten or 24, so they got their points, but man, they had to work really hard and by the end of the game. Both Booker and Durant look gasped. They look gas. Right. I mean, up here in altitude, but that's exactly what we talked about. You got to make these guys work. You can't let the transition game happen. You can't let them get off easy points. And one of the, to me, one of the big things, it was a little play, but it was a big play. Booker's getting a breakaway to the rim, and Jeff Green basically tackles him. You can get your points given from the free throw line. You ain't giving you and just the overall debt. What last night was the way they play defense and the way they play it on the offensive side of the ball, but the physicality which they played, that's the running game in the National Football League. That's what the running game does to you. Not only does your offense and your points come out of the running game because it opens up your play action stuff, but also from a defensive standpoint right it allows you to be aggressive playing defense and that to me was the equivalent of having a strong running game in the NFL, the way they played their defense last night. Here's Jamal on the defensive game plan against Booker. I think it slows the game down for them a little bit, you know, when they're trying to run and try and get out and create some opportunities in the fast break. And you know, I'm telling all these guys guard him like how they carve me, man, for these, you know, so I thought they did a great job just denying them and making them turn a little bit here and there and like it's not always about the wear and tear now. He's going to run by. He's going to get past it. We're all great basketball players, but when they're starting to play it, you know, 15 seconds, 13 seconds. It helps us as good for us. So it's kind of like, you know, getting both ways and we want to stay consistent with that, especially on the road. Wow. So you're telling me that there was an actual adjustment, yes, there was. Now, did they get that from some fan in the stands that suggested that Michael Malone pick it up from James Marilyn? Michael Malone, where did he offer Malone gave the idea? Yeah, I'm alone. Could have come out and said, it was just my idea, but he actually gave credit to he says, this is a democracy within this team and veteran players are encouraged to speak up. And Aaron Gordon after the game said, yeah, it was kind of a combination between Gordon, one of the assistants, brought up the idea. Hey, let's maybe try this. Do you think they listen to us? Oh, I know they do. Yeah. All the teams. Because it's kind of, it's kind of executed, but we were saying in the morning, right? Yeah, exactly. The kind of did exactly what we said. No. But I do actually like the not just a couple of pretty face number. I do like what Murray said, you know, guard him like they guard me. Worm out a little bit. Wear him down a little bit and that was the whole purpose of the quote unquote Jordan rules. Let's make he's going to get his points. We understand that he's going to get his points. He's going to earn those damn points. Quick note, Nikola Jokić, another triple double. He passes some guy named wilt for most career playoff triple doubles. Never heard of him. Never heard of him. Wilt.

But I'm leaving the X 20 out now, because I am going to grab it more often. I am sort of realizing the situations that is good for. And I'm going to start using it more regularly again, thanks to this weekend, thanks to some of the articles I read and, well, most importantly, thanks to some of the pictures I can write. Lens rentals most rented out point and shoot isn't a point and shoot at all. And this is an article from DP review. I have the link in the show notes so you can see the whole thing. Let me read you what they say here. Camera and lens rental company lends rentals has published a list of its most popular point and shoot cameras, but the thing we found most interesting is how few of the cameras on the list would sensibly be described as such. We recognize that for many people the term point and shoot is synonymous with the term compact camera, but we've always felt that there are plenty of compact cameras that encourage or reward a more hands on approach to their photography than simply pointing at a subject and pressing the shutter button. DP reviews sort of disputing the categorization of a point and shoot camera, let's do the list here. And you kind of see what they mean. So here, in reverse order, are their most popular point and shoot cameras of the past year. And I'm going to so we're going to do this data Letterman style, starting with number ten, 9, okay, number ten Olympus tough TG 6. Okay, that is a point and shoot camera. Although a specialty one. Canon power shot G 7 ten Mark three, next, the FujiFilm X 100 F, the Nikon cool pix P 1000, the leica Q two monochrome, definitely not of point and shoot camera. Next is the ricoh GR three X, then the Sony cyber shot RX100 seven, the Sony cyber shot Rx ten four at number two, the FujiFilm X 100 V, and at number one was the leica Q two. Okay, the leica Q two to their point is not a point and shoot camera. That is a serious camera. It just has a fixed lens on there, right? And then here's what they say after the list. DP review. Of the list, it's only really the Olympus TG 6 or the Nikon P 1000, whose appeal in both cases is about something other than just simplicity of operation. And perhaps the Sony RX100 seven, that one might sensibly expect to be simply pointed in shot. Okay. Everything else is a serious compact. And so I think what's interesting about this list is, though, that we've been even writing off serious compacts and enthusiasts compact cameras, looks like lens rentals is doing a pretty good business with these types of cameras. So the FujiFilm, we already know as popular, too like us on here, both popular. Why buy one when you can rent one? The ricoh GR three ten, well, we've talked a lot about the ricoh GR. Great camera. These are wonderful cameras. The Sony cyber shots. The Rx's fantastic cameras, so these are all really cool cameras. Okay. And I think what would have been probably more applicable is for lens Reynolds to say, these are really cool compact cameras that enthusiast photographers are still embracing today. We think they're going to be around for a while based on our rentals. And that's what I'm saying. And given how much fun I had with the older X 20, this past weekend, and then I'm looking at this list, and I'm going, yes, these cameras are fun to shoot with. They shake things up. You just have something much more compact. You don't have to bring extra accessories, all that kind of stuff. So I thought this was a really fun list and I really appreciated, I don't care about the terminology or

Most famously funny Willis in 2015 was the lead prosecutor in a RICO case against Atlanta public school teachers who were accused of doctoring test scores. He commented on the four person of the special grand jury that's been investigating Trump and the election, speaking out. Give us the background here. Just to back up for a moment, the special grand jury process is a bit unique in Georgia. They will hear evidence in secret and take testimony from witnesses and then at the end make recommendations either on a particular situation or a criminal matter, but they do not have the power to indict. So for 7 or 8 months last year, they heard 75 witnesses who were presented to them by prosecutors in 20 Willis. About Trump's efforts to overturn the 2020 election in Georgia. Their report, they wrote a report that was handed to the judge who gave it to the district attorney's office. And the media sued to try to get access to that report, a redacted partial version of the report was released in which the public learned that special grand jury recommended perjury charges against one or more witnesses and they also believed that there was no widespread fraud that occurred in 2020 as Donald Trump has repeatedly said.

I'll share a few of my favorites in today's TVS photography podcast. I hope you enjoy the show. So this is a lot of fun discovering hidden features inside of cameras. And I guess it's top of mind for me right now because we're in the middle of our mastering micro four thirds camera workshop and I'm having a lot of fun just digging through menus and exploring features and going, um, I didn't know my camera could do that. And I was thinking, you know, we're having a lot of fun in the workshop. I'm having a lot of fun, and I thought, well, maybe I should spread the joy a bit with everyone in our community. So that's what today is about. So I have a few different cameras here that I'm gonna use to illustrate these points and what I'm hoping they will do, even if it's not your specific camera, it will cause you to go, um, does my camera have that? And then start digging around inside your owner's manual or your menu system or wherever. But I do have a nice variety today. We're going to have tips for the Sony a 7 four. The ricoh GR three, the FujiFilm X 100 V, the ohm system OM one and the iPhone pro. So that's not too bad. And I'll tell you one thing right now. When I'm looking at features that are kind of neat and a little bit hidden in one camera and then the camera I shoot with doesn't have it, I go, oh, why can't we have all of these features in all the cameras, but again, that's what gives us the excuse to buy multiple cameras. Or one of the things. All right, anyway, let's start with the Sony a 7 four. So the first one that I want to tell you about is HEIF, the format, HEIF, instead of jpeg, so I love this about the Sony. If you don't know about HEIF, if you have an iPhone, you're shooting with it already or can shoot with it already. It's the high efficiency image format. And what's so cool about it? It's been around for a few years now. In a store's twice as much information as a jpeg in the same file size, right? So it's the same so each let's say it's, I don't know, four megabytes. The HEIF is going to have twice as much image information in that four megabytes than a jpeg. It's really cool. And if you're not shooting with it on your iPhone right now, I know we're talking about the Sony, but the iPhone is kind of what really made it mainstream. Then you need to go to your settings and switch to it because the image is truly our better. And it's widely accepted now. There's no compatibility problems. You can open it with practically anything. And the Sony in all of their wisdom, they give you that option so you can either choose jpeg or HEIF and believe me, I would choose HEIF, and this is for your compressed format. So you could also shoot raw plus jpeg or raw plus HEIF with the Sony a 7 four. Now the way that you get to it in the Sony as you go to menu, the shooting menu, image quality, image quality settings, and file format, right? So in this menu, you can also select raw plus HEIF or raw plus jpeg, raw plus HEIF man, that is a true power couple. That is some pretty sweet stuff. And as I mentioned a few moments ago, every application now or practically every application supports this format, there's no real reason not to shoot in it if you have it available to you and you do have it available to you in the Sony a 7. So that's one of the hidden features Sony shooters that you might not know about and boy oh boy, you have a gem waiting for you there. All right, let's go over to the RICO, the GR three. This is a compact point and shoot camera, at least it looks like it, but it packs a powerful APSC size sensor, and it has got tons of cool settings and it's a very sophisticated camera. It's a lovely camera. I've had some major desire for one for well, I get to I get to test one to write a review and I had to send it back and ever since I wanted one. And they have a new one now that it's a special edition and I think it's called the diary edition that has kind of this warm titanium finish and a special little wristband and a special case and even a hot shoe, a metal hot shoe cover that you can have your own engraving on. Oh man. As if I didn't want that camera bad enough already, they had to go and do that. But it's also that particular special edition limited quality, of course, I think, is also probably about $1200 when you're done with tax. So okay, there's the barrier, right? That anyway, there are all sorts of different versions of this camera that have been urban edition, and they have the stock edition, which is far more affordable than the special editions. And they're all great cameras. However, there are some cool little features in one. And the one I'm going to tell you about today for the ricoh GR three is the automatic horizon correction. So I think this is a really neat feature for this camera because it doesn't have an electronic viewfinder. You have to compose on the LCD screen. And I don't know if this happens to you, but for me and for other people that I know, when you're trying to get that horizon straight on an LCD screen, it can be problematic at time. You think you've got it, and then you're off just a little bit. Well, apparently the folks at RICO acknowledge this challenge and they give you automatic horizon correction. So when you're composing on an LCD screen, with this camera, the only viewfinder that it has, unless you get the optional optical viewfinder, you can enable the setting and it will straighten the horizon for you when you take the shot. Now it's not huge when you have ibis on when you have image stabilization on, it will correct it up to a degree and a half, and when you don't have ibis on, it'll still crack it up to a degree. Now I know that doesn't sound like a ton, but that's usually what gets us. When we're being focused on getting that horizon straight and we miss, we're usually just off by a degree or so anyway. And this would fix that for us. Now, the way that you get to it, it's in the shooting assist menu. I think as many 7, and it's at the bottom of the screen. So again, when you turn it on, you have it on, and I would just leave it on, especially if you're going to be doing stuff with horizons, right? You get that one and a half degrees if ibis is on. And I'm guessing you're going to have image stabilization on anyway. Why wouldn't you?
"ricoh" Discussed on Mac Minutes
"The iphone and apple. Watch and other hardware and software announcements. There are plenty of stories already out there. And i'd rather spend the time today on topic more meaningful. We will save that coverage for tuesday evening with a special mac minutes podcast when we know all the facts. I'd encourage you to tune into the keynote and comeback for our analysis. This week i want to talk about a major step forward for biking safety especially those who venture out alone recently. Bought this new bike helmet which came out this year specifically the will race mips bike helmet. It has tons of structural safety features but the technology is what sold me. I got an at recreational equipment inc or commonly referred to his rei and likely as available for many other stores and there are competitors who produce similar products where technology comes into the picture. Is this helmet incorporates. The twice me application available for your iphone and is equipped with the ricoh rescue reflectors. If are a mountain or road cyclists. This information could be lifesaving. I am a mountain biking and road cyclist and often venture out alone. I already take advantage of several notification in safety precautions offered by various iphone and apple. Watch applications if you're interested in learning about some of those ones. I previously talked about or want to look at photos of today's podcast. You can find them at mac. Minutes dot b. l. u. b. r. y. dot net. I've now added two more safety items with this helmet purchase. Yes i already had helmet. But this is such a huge step forward especially now for those who live in alaska and other places where rico rescued detectors are used. The alaska state troopers. Rotary-wing team announced. Recently it has become our search and rescue organization operational with the ricoh sar helicopter detector. The detector will be used to search for missing people in the outdoors year round. Many people may be already familiar with the use of the rico system at winter resorts which are incorporated into your clothing and a ski patrol uses a held detector. This technology has now come to all season sports rico. Technology is a two part system featuring an active detector carried by the rescuer and a passive reflector carried by the user as a mountain biker. Some of these trails are little narrowly. In a disabling accident could leave me unconscious and outside cell reception often accidents. Your cell phone is out of sight and damaged. This is a great present for your teenager or grand son or daughter who goes out biking on remote trails without all the safety equipment. Many adults consciously consider being able to pass onto rescue authorities. That he or she is wearing. The rico system could make a substantial reduction in the time to find them injured or just simply lost the rico system detector and the helicopter emits directional radar signal. Like the beam of the flashlight when the radar signal hits the rico reflector. It has echoed back to the detector and points to rescuer in the direction of the victim. The closer the detector gets to the reflector the stronger. The return signal ultimately allowing the rescuer to pinpoint the victims location. This system is used elsewhere. But just now is come to mainstream alaska. Check with your local authorities to see if your state uses this technology. You can also check on the rico website. Aviation safety officer justin louis on the alaska department of public safety said quote so as we've seen with previous rescues or attempts we do have limitations with the cameras and other rescue technology so being able to have an additional resource to be able to try locate these folks in a timely efficient manner is greatly beneficial effect. The rico sar helicopter detector can quickly search large areas. The detector sent a high powered. Radar signal echoed backed by a rico reflector troopers. Now have rico search and rescue helicopter detector which they hang about thirty feet below the helicopter. It then sends signals to the operator in the cockpit. The helicopter searches from a height of one hundred meters covering an area. Approximately one hundred meters wide searching at speeds of up to one hundred kilometers per hour. Rescuers can cover one square kilometer within six minutes besides shortening search time. The helicopter based detector can reduce the time and the exposure risk for rescue workers during search missions. Aviation safety officer lilly continued. We're pretty excited about it. It's phenomenal piece of technology. Were really honored to have been able to dental it in a state such as alaska and be able to offer that to our citizens he finished. Let's now move onto the next step of the rescue alaska department of public safety helicopter or a by stander has now found me. And hypothetically for this scenario i'm unconscious. That is where the twice meet iphone. Application comes into play using the advanced integrated nfc technology. You can store all your important information right into the helmet you do. So by inputting the data from the application on the iphone it can be found in the apple app store and is free. All information is stored locally hence no cloud service involved and the user only thereby always controls the information provided furthermore no need for internet access or batteries to read the information. Once you have entered this information into the application you have now created a global standard of vital information for storing your most important details. This includes medical information. Ice context doctors next of kin insurance information and more. You can store any information you want. That could be of importance to rescue personnel. So if you're ever in a crash which has statistics show is not that uncommon. Unfortunately in may make a difference if you live or die. Technology can make a world of difference and now biking has become more safer for those who want to make a small investment as we start. Wrap up this episode.

"Coming up at three. Kathy Huckle will deliver her first address to the People of New York as the state's 57th governor and first female chief executive here live coverage followed by analysis That's beginning at three on W N. Y C. Welcome back to all of it. I'm Alison Stewart. As you know, Making a radio show is a team effort. So this week we are airing our producers favorite interviews all week. Today, we'll hear some of Katherine's picks. A podcast series called the Turning. The Sisters who left tells the story of the women who joined and left Mother Teresa's religious order the Missionaries of Charity founded in Calcutta, India. With convents located around the world and the first home of the United States was established in the South Bronx. The women who joined the Missionaries of Charity, take vows of poverty, chastity obedience and promised to give quote wholehearted free service to the poorest of the poor. They devote their lives to service in places ravaged by poverty and live in a fiercely private community where, according to former sisters, friendships are forbidden and sisters are asked to separate themselves from their families, their past and the outside world. In addition to giving voice to the sisters, the turning also offers a closer look at Mother Teresa's work and the fame she achieved during her lifetime and the critiques of her legacy. Turning. The sisters who left is produced by Ricoh Co punch and I, Heart media, and All episodes are available to listen to now on I heart radio and all major podcast platforms. In June. We spoke with Erica Lance host and senior producer, and Kelly Dunham, who was with the Missionaries of Charity for two years and now works in the Brooklyn school system and is a stand up comedian on the side. Mother Teresa became an icon revered by people around the world. To quote a former sister in the public eye. She was a living saint. But she is also a person whose legacy has been reexamined. I asked Erika Lance about when she first became aware that things were not all but they seemed Well growing up, of course, heard a lot about Mother Teresa and all of the good things about her and As I was growing up. I also heard I knew a little bit about controversy around her, but I wasn't fully informed. I didn't know all of the details. But during her lifetime, there were critics who examined how exactly she was providing this service to the poorest of the poor as she calls them. And how her theology and spirituality might affect that care. So because the sisters take a vow of poverty, and Mother Teresa believed that poverty and suffering can bring you closer to Jesus. Critics worried that she might actually be romanticizing prop poverty and not doing everything she could to alleviate alleviate it. That's just one of the criticisms. What question did you have going into this project? There are so many pictures of Mother Teresa wearing her iconic white and blue sari, and she's surrounded by other women wearing that same habit. That same outfit, and I really didn't have any idea who those women were. What their lives were like. And so that's what the focus of this podcast is. We do talk about Mother Teresa. But really the emphasis is on the experiences of all of these sisters, especially former sisters, and what life is like inside the convent When you take these Very rigid vows of poverty, chastity, obedience and service to the poor. Um and I really did not expect what I found. I was surprised at how some of the women Almost didn't really understand what they were getting into. Yeah, I really wasn't expecting that. But, um, one former sister told me about rule class when she was an aspirant, first joining the Missionaries of Charity, and they were handed the Constitution books, which include all of the rules for the order. Which mother Teresa says, just follow these rules, and you're guaranteed Holiness, and they shared a book, and they were given the book at the beginning of class. They open it. They're told to open it to a particular page. They reviewed that rule, and then they closed the book, and they aren't allowed to read ahead in the book. And As the former sister stayed on in the order. They were more rules and aspects of the way of life that she didn't know she was signing up for. She didn't know that she would be required to She would only be allowed to visit home. Once every 10 years. She didn't know that she'd only be able to write home once a month and that all of those letters would be reviewed by her superior before they went out. And she also didn't know about the discipline, which is their practice of self flagellation. So, Kelly what led to your decision to join the Missionaries of Charity? Um, so I was working as a volunteer in Haiti. Um, and a friend invited me along there like Oh, we're going to the home for the dying. Would you like to go and I was Enough of an adolescent to say, you know, it's just 19 to take that kind of a challenge and say yes, for the sake of pride. I had never been around guns. I was actually raised evangelical Christian. But I was working at a school for kids with disabilities in Haiti, and I was really frustrated by what I was seeing, Like. So much of what was helping just seemed like Colonial ization gone mad, You know, like it did not seem like actually helping, and the employees had a different way of working with folks. I was really I was quite taken by the way that they worked with folks that it seemed more maybe not mutual quite to the point of mutual aid, but much more collegial and and Yeah, more collegial and of kinder and more focused on the individual. So that was kind of my original. I had to convert to Catholicism, which is a whole thing unto itself. Um But I was I had worked for them with them as a volunteer for years before I joined and the kind of the thing that was Surprising to me the thing that was like first, like the red flag, which probably I should have figured it out. But the sisters invited in Miami. I was volunteering with the sisters in Miami, and then I got the word that I could join. And they asked the sisters in Miami ask you for tea, and they gave me this really sweet card that said, you know, welcome home. Sister Kelly. You know, we're so glad you're joining us and then on the inside, it said it has this quote that like your love for Jesus must destroy you completely. And then, like, Wow, this is really like a through some guard. And then they pointed out that every word like wherever there was like a, you know, like a hole in the middle of any of the letters they had dripped written in like the blood of Jesus. It was like tripping down just to kind of illustrate what destroying would look like. So I think you know, there's folks who volunteer with the emcees for a long time. I don't understand. Any of the inside life. And I think I was one of those folks. Even though I do have to say some sisters did try and warn me. When you said some sisters did try to warn you. What did they say? Um, one of the sisters who was very close to in Miami as close as you're allowed to be to an EMC. Um, she took me aside and she said Kelly, if you feel like they're breaking your head breaking Your head was the exact words she used. I can still see the look on her face. She was just whispering it to you. If you feel like they're breaking your head, you just run. You just run because Jesus doesn't want that. And I have to say at the time I was like, Oh, not me. They will not break my head. This is my this is Jesus called me. But, um, I have to say when it became time clearly for me to leave. That I was so glad that she had said that because it was like a reassurance like this is this is a thing that happens..
