My “Experiment” series continues with “Zen Nature | Landscapes for Well Being”, a celebration of the beauty of nature and Earth Day. A colorful collage of earth and space; bringing together the compassion of love, life, culture, and soulful melodies for meditation.

25 second preview – experiment: zen nature | landscapes for well being

**************************************

In celebration of Earth Day 2013, here is a preview of my upcoming video from my “Experiment” series entitled: “Zen Nature | Landscapes for Well Being”. It explores the beauty of our earth as well as some of its inhabitants. I have been working on it for the pass week, and will be completing it sometime next week or by the weekend (so keep an eye out for it). It is meditation on Nature; a calming sense of place, discovery and purpose … to love ourselves and our planet.

Post Canvas and Paint: Variations | A Barren Autopsy

Post Canvas And Paint: Variations ~ A Barren Autopsy

a barren autopsy
of ourselves;
the lack of compassion
for a deep sense of lost
and stolen innocence

what do we see
when we look in the mirror
on cold December nights
but the tears of children
falling from our eyes …

As a society we are becoming numb to reason. And as a consequence, we may one day lose our humanity.

All weekend I have been thinking of my lovely daughter Lady, and her timeless heart. Never to be forgotten. This has always been one of my favorite photographs of her: Young, beautiful and imaginative. I thought this week’s challenge would be a perfect tribute to her. Rest in peace my Lady Pooh.

The Path To Grace And The Summit Of Ascension

The Path To Grace And The Summit Of Ascension

Last night
I had a dream
So deep
Forever freeing

Never a moment
Did I long for awareness
Of the waking world
Here on the path of Grace

Beauty
Stillness
Love
As I ascended
Through the floating
Orbs of mystery
– past – time
And the Grace
That is You


Another Earth

No longer outside my window, but here within … Another Earth

Another Earth

Peaceful – Beautiful – Magnificent

 – the home within our hearts …


Post Canvas And Paint: Another Meaningful World

Outside my window, in a virtuous world, there can only be … a willingness to let go.

Another Meaningful World

if every day

it meant something

–          to you

–          to the mirror in me

to protect the heart

even the whole of the world

would i hold my dying breath

to let it all go …


Post Canvas And Paint: Another Virtuous World (At A Crossroad Remix)

Outside my window, in a revealing moment, I see the choices of my life …

Another Virtuous World

disintegrating

with decisions we make

about to what we dream

to whom we should be

and what it means

–          to you

and to the mirror

that stands before me …


I Really Want To Meet Your Sensitivity With Compassion And Love (A Hit The Mark Remix)

In a moment, my only desire is to meet your sensitivity with my thoughtfulness and longing….

Being centered with you

They tell me that love and compassion is a journey without measure….

Not unlike an arrow whose flight is true….
