The Inner Path of Photography

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

“Strong/Fragile”

Fragile

Beautiful

Strong to have made it to the beach.

A shell companion, quiet witness
Birds, ocean, sky

Now you may drop the struggle.
Allow your fragility

Rest. Rest. Rest.

*****

On this day of Winter Solstice, 2020, I honor your ability to always find the Light.
I send you love, inspiration, and comfort for the Soul.

Always Beauty.

“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.

 

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…”

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.
