The path is always right beneath your feet. ~ Issan Dorsey

The path may not always be as beautiful as this garden path, lined with late summer blossoms, but it is always there. All we need to do is keep on, keeping on, one step and then the next. Never know what is going to appear around the next curve.


 Bo Mackison is a photographer and the owner of Seeded Earth Studio LLC. She is taking an August break from writing long blog posts, but the photos continue. Bo photographed these flower beds while walking the paths at the Olbrich Botanical Gardens in Madison, Wisconsin.

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.

      I usually post almost every day, Theresa, so this is a break for me — not too many words. Come September and we’ll see what I do…
