The golden coin-shaped leaves of this plant contrast the winter blue sky. And yes, for once the sky was so blue it reminded me of theĀ  bright skies I typically see in the west.

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.

  12. I’ve been following your wabi-sabi series and really enjoying it. I’m sorry I haven’t commented. Life seems to be taking on a little speed lately.

    Your wabi-sabi photos are really beautiful. I especially enjoyed the quilt and the story behind it.
