Listen in to Fieldstone Common this week as host Marian Pierre-Louis talks to John Thomas Grant, author of Final Thoughts: Eternal Beauty in Stone.
Photographer, Author, John Thomas Grant's conceptualization of Final Thoughts was the consequence of the unraveling of some old letters, a personal journey in search of his family roots, and the chance meeting with a young man in a small New England town.
John interprets and connects with history through the camera lens. He reminds us that the past resides with us, sometimes forgotten and sometimes celebrated. The unique quality of John's photos blends the past and the present together showing they are inseparably entwined.
Join us as we talk with John Thomas Grant about his book, his beautiful interpretation through photography and the impact it has had on his life and that of his readers.

Photographer, John Thomas Grant, has published his debut book Final Thoughts: Eternal Beauty in Stone. This book is packed with 156 pages of high quality, beautiful color images taken in the historical cemeteries of the northeastern United States and is a story of life and death in America as told through beautiful cemetery art photography accompanied by meaningful epitaphs from cemeteries up to 300 years old.
View 68 cemeteries in 224 beautiful photographs that breathe life into existence of those who have passed before us, and who are now enshrined for eternity in landscaped paradises.
John wasn’t born with a camera around his neck or a cemetery in his backyard. Ten years ago, he was neither a photographer nor did he possess a passion for or enjoyment of cemeteries. John’s art evolved in a search for his family roots; it was genealogy that brought him to the cemetery. Before the serendipitous discovery of peace & sublime tranquility, John was blowing his brains out in the music business. Nearly 30 years of head banging assaults on his nerves was bled before he retired in the mid-90’s. From there, it was not too long after the inspiration struck a second time. This time, John hoped for greater amity with his spirit. So far – it’s working out very well for him.
THIS BOOK AND ITS PHOTOGRAPHS ARE INCREDIBLE!

Thomas Jefferson and the founding fathers intended a strict separation of church and state, right? He would have been very upset to find out about a child praying in a public school or a government building used for religious purposes, correct? Actually, the history on this has been very distorted. While Jefferson may seem to be the Patron Saint of the ACLU, his words and actions showed that he would totally disagree with the idea of driving God out of the public square. Doubting Thomas documents that. . . * Jefferson said that our rights come from God. God-given rights are non-negotiables. * At the time that he wrote the Declaration of Independence and the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom---major contributions to human and religious rights?Jefferson served diligently as a vestryman (like an elder and a deacon rolled into one) for the Episcopal Church. * In 1777, he wrote up the charter for the Calvinistical Reformed Church in his town with an evangelical preacher, the Rev. Charles Clay--with whom he had a lifelong friendship. Jefferson was the biggest single contributor to this fledgling congregation. * Jefferson had nothing but the highest praise for Jesus’ teaching, which he studied religiously (even in the original Greek), in order to pattern his life after that which he called “the most sublime and benevolent code of morals which has ever been offered to man.” * As president, he attended church on a regular basis at the US Capitol building, even sometimes recommending preachers to fill that pulpit. * He had many positive relationships with orthodox clergymen and active lay Christians. * He actively supported Christian causes, financially, in ways that would put the average Christian to shame.

A lot of research is being done in immunotherapy for myeloma that is leading to new treatment options for patients. Dr. Ivan Borrello of John Hopkins is working on a completely, novel approach. This involves enhancing white blood cells to create a customized immunotherapy for patients. The T-cells from the patient's bone marrow are extracted, enhanced, and expanded in the lab, and are given back to the patient, allowing for a more specific immune response targeting the proteins found on their myeloma cells. The use of bone marrow T cells is more precise than the use of cells from the blood which makes this therapy more effective. Join our myeloma panel talk on this new area of research, as they discuss the difference between CAR-T cells and MILs (marrow infilterating lymphocytes), and how body's natural immune cell growth can be used to fight myeloma.
