As Clarity Emerges in the Silence of the Woods

As Clarity Emerges in the Silence of the Woods

…the visual acuity and stillness of the leaves…they seem to speak and invite…an invitation and evocation of the universality of certain truths…of soulful meanings…and of wisdom…and insights…and I am enamored by the mystery of the silent existence of a space between this photographer and the subject…there is that crossing…that bridge…that interconnectedness…that unites…that inhabits…an opportunity to extend compassion…for in the silence of the woods, there is no bias…for there is honesty…and in the emptiness and limitations of this photographer, clarity emerges…
