a rewind | sunrise and chakra flowers for meditation

“Sometimes our thoughts and feelings take us places we can no longer go … However, in the waking sunrise of a new day, we can, in our meditation, understand our thoughts anew and find places full of insight, rejuvenation, and tranquility”. ~ Walter Smith

In keeping with the pursuit of tranquility and the essence of Zen that I focused on in my recent video entitled “Experiment: Zen Meditation | Landscapes for Well Being”, here is a rewind of a collage with the same theme from 2009. My next post: “variations | sunrise and chakra flowers for meditation”. As in all my pieces in the variation series, I am using this image as a starting point to reach a new compositional insight.

With Friends

Life in memory …
with friends
a cycle of instances
– Reggie
that touch the past
like fine strands of silk
– Bob
nothing is forgotten
alive in delicate remains
– Robert
moments really did happen
here with you
– Judy
in this life of memories
your bodies gone
– Frankie
found again in thought
visited through Spirit and Light
– Zina
your lives
my memories
together …
Friends Forever

There is a beauty in the inter-connectedness of life and experience. We remember friends who have passed away. Their spirit, their laughter, the things they shared with us … as if it was only yesterday.

Sometimes going “Beyond” is a reflection of who we are, and what we can discover about ourselves, when we take that important step inward to our quiet, inner, space.

The Horizon. A view just beyond. We follow it to our dreams and aspirations. It gives us a place of peace. And projects meaning into our lives.

Beyond imagination, are the creative designs in which we can find ourselves.

What a fascinating challenge this week. It provides so much leave way for the artist to convey a multitude of ideas and concepts on the theme. Beyond can take you many places. For my first entry, landscapes and beyond. All images here are digitally remastered to make the journey that much more exciting. From shore lines, to expanding sky, to mountain vistas … we step just beyond the ordinary.

This week’s photo challenge is coming to an end. I thought I would include a few more images I created in 2012.


Weekly Photo Challenge: My 2012 In Pictures | Grandchildren and Family

Kids

What a wonderful photo challenge this is to close out the year 2012. Highlights and special moments captured on film. This past Thanksgiving I was surrounded by loved ones. There were grandkids, my girlfriend, family, friends and the memory of my daughter Lady. My sister Patricia and her boyfriend Elbert, served dinner and were our hosts for a magnificent celebration of family. It was a rose of a day. Colorful, warm and joyous.

In a moment while sitting with myself, I thought only of things you said to me …

Post Canvas and Paint: Variations | A New Morning

a new morning
with colors of possibilities
what will I find
that will bring me
peace of mind

lost just over the horizon
are the wishful memories
and waking realities
– life is
what life is
