Whole against the Sky

Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue, a wonderful living side by side can grow, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole against the sky. ~ Rainer Maria Rilke


I find November the most difficult of months. So I bring my camera with me, and focus on shooting a bit of cheerfulness, a bit of color, a pleasing composition – it cheers me and sustains me.

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. striking colors – captures the season.

  2. That is indeed a cheering photo!

  3. Lovely berries. What manner of tree or shrub is this, Bo? At the lake house I planted a golden berried possumhaw holly that had glorious yellow, gold and brown berries every winter. I miss it – this reminds me so much of my winters with the possumhaw!
