AFTERNOON WALKABOUT

Occasionally my body follows my mind's endless pursuit and I wander aimlessly into realms where there is always something waiting.


There is freedom in letting go of time for a moment and leaving myself open to what may present itself to me.

The same path that I have walked countless times whispers the promise of a new song to fill my ears.

I try to make connections to a larger world that is beaming with life, possibility and grace.

I am often overwhelmed in these moments with how truly connected we are to the world, and I am aware of the arrogance inherent in any attempt to deny this, or more tragically, to ignore this.

Rare moments emerge where I finally let go, allowing myself to be "oppressed by the figures of beauty".

I look for patterns in things, where natural forces and creativity embrace in a sacred dance


I try to breath...

What spectacular photographs and beautiful thoughts accompanying them.
Your "oppressed by the figures of beauty" statement makes me listen to Cohen in a whole new light. Well done.

Happy Holidays. I hope you're able to dig out in time to have some fun.
