Barn and Shed


Weathered whitewashed barn
Broken windows, empty stalls
Ghostly cows lowing

About Bo Mackison

I’m a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place – a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I’d love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It’s my gift to you.


  1. I love the look and feel of old barns, and you have captured this one beautifully!

  2. Thanks, Truddie. Barns are a real favorite of mine, and quite available living in Wisconsin farm country.
