A Momentary Pause

Deceivingly bright sun…bone-penetrating coldness…snow covered backyard…winter light on the wooden floor…gentle dance of the window curtain…the house is sedate…I begin this mid-morning without anticipation…without trepidation…and I feel like inhabiting a liminal space…an in between pause in a time of unknowing…time … Continue reading

Getting Lost in the Moment

…it happens…when you become mindful…the grainy snowy ground…clumps of snow…the bold shadows…the light…protruding twigs…they all congregate in one simple stroke of nature, at just the right moment…at the right time…a visual koan of sort…it is just what it is…aiming my … Continue reading
