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.

    They remind me of sock puppets. 🙂

    I love the soft colors and edges in the photo.

  2. I’ve always been interested in how tall they stand, especially in lilies.

  3. I think they are looking back at you, Bo. 😀

  4. Magical!! As if they are dancing for your eyes!!!

  5. Ah, that is so funny. 🙂
