The arc of my next evolution

On this morn I was fighting inner demons. Old stories of failure, hardship, of being alone in the world. It seemed fitting that the sky was a story of greys. Yet I found beauty here, in the drizzle. The drama of the greys. And from the other side of the world a voice came…reminding me that all was not lost. … Read More

Too much light | Beauty of Beginnings

The beauty of this photo is that the sun is hidden behind the clouds. The moment it rises above the clouds the definition and dimension of the clouds will be lost. As the observer of many dawns I see the patterns of the clouds on the dawn horizon. Each day unique. Occasionally absent. Several hours into the day if I … Read More

To be golden

  Golden…this is what I feel when I look at this scene. There is a richness to natures gold that has allured human beings through out our history. Is this attraction learned, or would a very young child reach for the golden object over all others? To feel golden…to feel as if our own inner light shines golden on others…radiating … Read More

We are nature

Nature brings us back to self. Or perhaps by being in nature we are reminded that we are nature. It is so easy for us to slip into the separate perspective…I…human..am separate from you..nature. I have dominion. I am smarter, better, faster… HAH!! It only takes a storm or earthquake for us to be humbled as to who exactly has … Read More

Finding home

There is something about cold cold mornings…where the air is snap crisp, and each breath is felt. Granted, where I live we do not know real cold..6 C (42 F) to 24 C (75 F) days..and those 6 C mornings are rare. On these cold mornings you know that the horizon will be cloudless, as will the day. This is … Read More

In noticing every day miracles, more miracles occur

At first I thought there was not going to be a photo this morning. And then, this moment, when the sun came through a pocket in the clouds. It so happened that I was also in this spot where a tree provided some contrast. One moment nothing…and then everything. Just like that. This is the nature of life. The nature … Read More

Releasing our failures into the vast Ocean

We carry so much baggage…doesn’t matter how much work we have done on ourselves, our baggage keeps us humble…and human. We carry stories of our past failures, our past disappointments…stories that tell us that we cannot succeed in the future…we carry the patterns of our lineage…inherited myths that we may not even know. A new born baby cannot know to … Read More

Beautiful Blue

Blue…a colour…or a feeling? Today, both. Amazing that I can see the beauty of this scene and also feel blue. Yet in truth if I really look at this…really melt into the presence of the beauty of this scene, all that is left is love…beauty…more love… The feelings of blue are there still when I step out of the beauty. … Read More

A mechanistic or connected Universe?

Two seagulls and a lone runner frame this beautiful sunrise. I have felt as if everything I have been working on has been stuck for about 6 weeks. Interestingly, in my inner work around the project that consumes most of my days, I hold the image of two birds…white doves…or perhaps seagulls.. as a symbol of my project. When I … Read More
