Haunted and Saved by Memories 2/17/15

Everyone, no matter what their cultural background, has a right to discover the sacred in nature; to heal and be redeemed spiritually by nature; and to revere the ancestors. We are all haunted and saved by our memories.”

February 17, 2014Tuesday, February 17, 2015 – Today meditating on my indoor plants allowed me to think about the fact that we are part of nature (and all we do to our earth and fellow creatures we do to ourselves).   Hopefully we allow ourselves to feel the connection.  While my journey of taking photos of the nature that is mostly in my yard and home began and continues as the work of self healing, I also hope that it will touch and help others see the nature and beauty in their own surroundings and connect.  It is at times haunting to see the pictures of the past, especially pets that have passed on, and it is also healing to see the beauty captured in some photos, including the sad ones.
