“Over, Under, Sideways, Down . . .

Which Way?

Which Way? © 2008 Bo Mackison

. . . Backwards, forwards, square and round.”
lyrics by the Yardbirds

If you can’t figure out which direction you are heading, can you reach your destination?

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. Oops! I hate that, especially when my compass looks like that in the high country!

    Hmmm. With that image, I believe you lit a fire. 🙂

    Maybe I intuitively know the direction to head (don’t need to look outside myself for a marker) and if I just got my conscious mind out of the way with its doubts and fears, the journey could unfold and I would eventually reach my destination.

    And that’s why I have the digital compass in my car.

    I’m thinking maybe I should make sure it’s right though.

  4. Ah well, the destination isn’t that important anyhow. 🙂

    I like this one. Thought provoking.

  5. accidentally?
