Capturing the essence of the continual flux of mood, emotion, varying light and colors, vastness, beauty, from the environment, places, people, and the event of life each occasion offers.
how willful is the surrender;
a stillness grows within myself.
All becomes possible in the spaciousness of void,
There is no struggle here.
into the carriage of peace may I wander eternal.
I came to New Mexico following a mystic now all quite some years ago- I never would have presumed it to be a lasting home. Several years later unfolds the discovery that to fully arrive within one's self is of the greatest treasure of self realization that in turn, becomes the key unlocking complete self actualization. To know one's self is to know the bounty of life in it's full spectrum of beauty.
Through the time of inward reflection I look up to find a great love affair unfolding with New Mexico, an eagerness to further delve the Greater Albuquerque areas, her people and those who come to visit the city, the river that runs through and always, the surrounding mountain terrain shaping endless skylines of color and mystery.
