The Inner Path of Photography

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

“That’s how the light gets in” – Winter Solstice 2010


“Moon, Venus & Jupiter” Taos, New Mexico, c. 2009 Heidi Straube

December 21…Winter Solstice…When the sun shines the least, and the darkness is longest.

I intended to write an article today about darkness vs. light, rebirth and hope, new beginnings and prosperity — many of the themes of the rituals and celebrations associated with the Winter Solstice.

But in the refrain of his song poem, “Anthem” Leonard Cohen captures the essence.

Like any good art, it needs no interpretation or expansion.

Listen…in your heart…it is for you.

“Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in
That’s how the light gets in
That’s how the light gets in”

My photo in the NY Times blog…

Remember the NY  Times project, “A Moment in Time” that I posted to a couple of weeks ago?

Well, here’s my photo published there…and the whole project results…

What a fun project…I’m loving seeing what everyone else shot and also how many people/places participated!

We are the world (hum the tune here…:)
