Lucid Dreaming – A Portrait

Lucid Dreaming

“Lucid dreaming has considerable potential for promoting personal growth and self-development, enhancing self-confidence, improving mental and physical health, facilitating creative problem solving and helping you to progress on the path to self-mastery.” – Stephen LaBerge

Keep Your Promise

I see thee

The sun at your back

Water droplets rest

Untouched upon you

Like a kiss so gentle

On a lover’s lips.



Keep  Your Promise

Your petals so fine

Blow delicately in the breeze

Yet you hang on

With a grasp quite tight

As a flower does

To keep

The promise

Of everlasting beauty.

In the language of flowers the plum blossom means to keep your promise.  Although the blossoms are short-lived, the beauty of the flower is everlasting in the eye of the one who was blessed to see and smell it.

Interest, Mystery and Details…

“The beauty and mystery of this world only emerges through affection, attention, interest and compassion . . . open your eyes wide and actually see this world by attending to its colors, details and irony.” – Orhan Pamuk

Interest Mystery Details

Same flower, same light, different angles, different effects, all green.

2013 Lily Series – 01

Tonight begins a journey with the Lily.  Historically, the Lily has represented majesty.  In some parts of history it can be found that Lilies of various colors represent something other than, or in addition to, majesty.  For example, the white Lily, as I posted last week, represents purity and virtue.  Throughout the 2013 Lily series you will see Lilies of varying color as well as black and white images of Lilies.  The Lily itself is a magnificent flower.  It can be a challenge to photograph, but if you have wonderful natural light, those challenges seem to fade to artistic creation.  I hope you enjoy the series and look forward to your comments and feedback.

Thoughtful Thursday

Introducing “Grace”.

As you view the images let your mind wonder and fill with thoughts of the beauty and Grace within each rose.  Do the images speak to you? I’m hoping they at least give you a brief smile.



Another World

Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing. – Arundhati Roy

The gift of imagination plus the box of dress-up clothes equals a delightful afternoon.
