The World Within


A World Within © 2011 Bo Mackison

I soon realized that no journey carries one far unless, as it extends into the world around us, it goes an equal distance into the world within.  ~Lillian Smith

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 this. I have a particular fondness for black and white photographs and this is a great one.

  2. Oh my goodness, I saw this pop up on my facebook and I could not resist commenting! I love this so much, the lines of the flowers combined with the black and white tone. Made my day! This gets a heart!
