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.

It was foggy today as we cruised down this beautiful stretch of California coastline. The cool gentle air gave the edge of the sea a meditative quality.

Attention, reflection and calm are all reflected in this lady’s face. Once again my little Ricoh GR camera captures a personal moment in someone’s life. Over and over you’ll here street photographers say that the camera doesn’t matter in their work. I beg to differ. The Ricoh is small, unobtrusive and very very capable. It helps me a LOT.
