The Inner Path of Photography

We yearn for the taste of the sacred…and through our cameras discover it, the world, and ourselves.

Please join me at the reception for
the
Cape Cod Art Association’s
special exhibition
“All New England.”

My image

“The Bath”

has been chosen
as one of the celebrated images.

I’ve shared with you
expansive outside beauty…
the changing flow of water on the marsh,
the tree alive through winds upon the ocean bluffs
mystery and intimacy deep within the blizzard…

I now offer you a different view…
the gift of inner silence, peace and nurturing
Light, reflections, Love
All that I feel deeply at my winter Cape Cod home.

A breath. A sigh.
May you also feel the Enchantment
always present in our everyday lives.

Reception, October 19, 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM 

 Exhibition,
October 16 – November 12, 2017

“A Child, Deer, Woods: The Gift”

 

 

As a child, I tiptoed through the woods
hoping to discover the flattened grass
left from the sleep of deer the night before.

To find one of these spots was to step into a deep
experience of the Sacred.

Awed, immersed in the mystical,
I imagined the deer watching over me, and received their special gift
allowing me into their secret, peaceful home.

I still silently breathe a sigh of gratitude.

 

“Exquisite”

“And what of the clouds?” she says
“They dance the beauty of your soul,” he replies

Deep.
Sacred.

Such is the true nature of passion.

The Heart unfolds its layers
offers its mysteries
opens and softens to Love

Invites the Known
Risks the Unknown

Will the Light expand or the Heart be veiled again?

the Beauty is constant
Passion still alive

Soul’s gift –
Always living from the Exquisite

Dock to the Unknown

Five years later – my photo poem still true for me and actively relevant this day. May you also choose the magic.

The Inner Path of Photography

“These unexpected gifts of magic still continue
their source as mystifying as ever
whether the “face” before me
Is human, cloud, ice, fire…”

–  Minor White

An approaching storm

Beauty….or Fear?
a choice

Walking forward, not able to see what is at the end of this dock
this day
this life

We can choose to see the light…or darkness.

I choose the magic.
