"In any case the most important thing, is to find the deeper work of your heart (each moment), and be awakened there. Keep digging in the earth of your images, and the dance of empty mind. The indigenous nature of beauty, invites what it will, and requites what measure of it our eyes closed (and so open) see with our hands. The deeper stillness, (not Dionysian), of not wanting is waiting, beyond waiting, in another dharma life, a moment away (you are already looking back)."

The gift of a poet’s practice in watching witness. The ashram of the heart.
Alex, how wonderful to sit with you and meet your family….furry four-legged ones included. :)
Thank you for the most wonderful surprise I’ve been a part of. Colin told me he sat there overwhelmed and speachless. He found the whole experience surreal. He said he sat there looking across at you, but his eyes kept drifting to his present and he just couldn’t believe what I had done. Yay!
There are so many more pieces I’d love to buy from you. All in good time, I know. The one of the house on the hill with the mountains in the back..breath taking! The one of the sun shining through the branches…I want to wake up to that every morning. So many wonderful photos. You make the world a more beautiful place. Thank you.
Susan, your words break through my heart to the other side.
