Seeing Pink

Abstract Asian Lily

Abstract Asiatic Lily © 2012 Bo Mackison

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. ~ Lao Tzu

Another lily, but this lily is different from the more common Easter Lily which looks like a trumpet, or the orange Wood Lily which has petals that spread outward. This lily’s petals curl underneath, and form a tidy looking flower. This photo was taken with my back upon the earth, as I looked into the lilies on the plant.

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 love the look I can get when I’ve got my back to the earth — as long as there’s help around (if I need it) when I want to get back up. LOL.
