Snow falling on bicycles. The soft layers of dense snow create a humorous fat tire. Everything changes as it interacts with its surroundings.
Sea grass on the Alabama shore. A peaceful morning provides the spaciousness for everything to be just as it is. The thin reed in the morning sun casts a wiggly shadow.
Sand dunes on the Gulf coast. Graceful sand drawings were made by windblown sea grasses. I try to remember to ask when I venture out: what is waiting to emerge or what new possibilities will I encounter in this moment?
Sunlight filtering through curtains and blinds. The interplay of sunlight and window coverings at just the right angle creates patterns of dancing lines of light. Where is the momentary beauty in your next moment?
A snowy Arkansas field. Wind, snow, and sunlight produce a beautiful and fragile picture of impermance.
A warm manhole on a snowy Arkansas street. Waiting warmly in the snow, the steel creates an icon in the new snowy landscape. The snow reframes the common steel armature of the street into a luminous image. Without the snow, the manhole would be easily overlooked, but, combined at this moment, their interaction makes something new possible. Even little things like this can help you remember how the changes happening around us open up a multitude of possibilities and pictures.
Icy footprints on a plaza in Little Rock. Seen from above, the patterns of hustle and bustle in a city reveal a cool visual snapshot of our time. If you can keep your head up and your thoughts calm, you can convert an everyday moment into a wonderful creative space.
Cold sunset in northwest Arkansas. Sometimes the cold clarity of winter creates transitions like dusk that are unusually memorable. Appreciating transitions in our days is good practice in the art of living mindfully.
Sunrise along the gulf. Our experience of life is push and pull, but the eternal is always present if we can stay awake.
