BE STILL...and SEE Photography

Reflecting on who I am...what is important to me...and the gifts I offer the world, I have reorganized this PhotoSchmoozer blog into separate pages for your viewing. I am about so much...people - relationships - drums and rhythms and especially photography...and I realize that although separate, they are all so INTEGRATED into the Whole of who I am!! It's a very peaceful thought and I am thankful for the intuitive gift to see the connections and the relationships. Enjoy the journey through the blog...and WELCOME.
Contemplative photography is about being totally present and seeing exactly what is before you, without filters or judgment. It is about seeing with your heart.Doesn't everyone see what is before them? Not really. You may see a candle on a table. Do you also see the shadows it creates? Or the reflections that the light casts on it? Or it's underlying shape and form?

The Glory of Reflections

Found a bakery and got a brownie yesterday for a late afternoon 'treat' or so I thought.  Didn't I know the reactions from the sugar and the chocolate? Of course, but temporarily it tasted pretty good - well, at least fair!  So being wound up by it all, I thought that the best way to settle would be to go out under my grounding tree and pick some lemon balm for tea.  As I walked down the steps and looked, there was a huge puddle from some serious rainstorms a few hours ago and the most beautiful reflection of the pink clouds from the sunset!  I knew I had to catch and share this vision and so I did!  See, the PhotoSchmoozer lesson came to me clearly and I share...stop and BE STILL to always see what is in your world!  I did and in itself, this was a wonderful way to settle.  Then I made the tea and listened to a Judy Collins concert on WXPN's Gene Shay folk show.  What a perfect evening and a great way to end the weekend.
