Take Your Breath Away!

“All this knowledge of the objective world is of no value in comparison to having a little glimpse of the inner sky and its beauty — its sunrises and sunsets, its days and nights, its blue sky and its stars. The outer then looks only a pale reflection of the inner. The inner becomes more real and the outer becomes just a shadow.” -Osho

This summer I have had the pleasure of witnessing many beautiful sunrises, sunsets and stars that took my breath away.

For me, every time I gaze up at the starry sky I am reminded that this is where I come from. I feel a part of the entire universe in that moment.

I have a goal of learning night photography so I can capture the beauty of what my naked eyes sees and also what a camera is able to capture and my eye is not.

So often in life we search outside of ourselves for things to make us happy and then one day many of us realize that the things that were always there are the ones that make us most happy, like a sunrise, sunset or the stars.

What about you? What takes your breath away? What takes you to that place of feeling one with all that is?

I hope you find these beautiful moments in your life too. And the cool thing is that the more you find them, the more they appear, which is awesome!

The Brilliant Cross

I am in Denver, Colorado and today I was out exploring. I found the architecture and the buildings simply jaw dropping and I will be making a blog post to share some of those pictures, but in this post I wanted to share this one picture. I was taking a picture of a church with a tall building behind it and this is what ended up being captured. I thought it was pretty awesome!

Oh Great Lake Superior

A Poem composed and written by me on the shores of Lake Superior where I have found my inspiration and creativity flourishing.

For the audio version listen here:

Oh Great Lake Superior.

I did not know I would fall so deep…

So deep in love with you!

Or how deep your rapture would in turn capture my soul.

I now long and yearn for you when together or apart.

You share with me your beauty.

And it goes straight to my heart.

You show me your many faces.

All of which are unique and pleasing to the eye.

I now know why artists listen to your waves and point their cameras in your midst.

You are relentless in your offerings of beauty and divine prowess.

Your treasures are timeless and the delight you offer is legendary.

Oh how my soul thanks you!
