Ripples on the Pond

at Sunset

Reflection at Sunset

Things wabi-sabi have a vague or blurred feeling as they approach nothingness.Β  Bright, deep colorations fade into the colors of dawn and dusk.

Ripples radiating, gradually fading.
Reflection of the trees and sunset, gradually fading.
Fading into nothingness.

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.
