A Question Of Perspective

There’s a book out called “Zen Camera” that I just ordered. It links mindful thinking with photography. This image is my first under the influence of that book. It’s a feeble attempt to question what’s the real subject of this photograph.  How about the lock on the chain?

A 7AM Meditation

Today’s early morning was a sodden soggy mess. The rain was pelting down so hard that even in bed with the windows closed tightly, the rain’s steady, strangely soothing hiss could easily be heard over the hum of the ceiling fan. A lovely form of meditation could be achieved by just lying still and listening.

Morning Break (Possibly From Thinking)

These photographs were taken about 5 minutes apart this morning as I was on my way to get groceries. I’m struck by how deep in thought both these women seem to be. Yet how can one be sure? Sometimes we just turn off our minds for a moment and enjoy the stillness within.  Meditation helps. It’s worth practicing.    

Beyond The Shore

There are always places beyond where we are now and then beyond that until we finally come home and find them here.

Still Searching

It’s always been right here.

In The Present

Being in the present. Easy to say, so hard to do.
