your attention inward is the key
to experiencing Tao. Let it
become a daily practice.

Contemplative photography is a form
of meditation. It encourages you to focus
your attention on the details of life and
then turn inward through you reflections.
Create a series of "Meditations" based on
a simple concept like wind, symmetry or
joy. Let the images inspire a piece of
writing...a poem perhaps.
|Monthly Meditation - January, 2014|
In December, I will upload all twelve images which you are welcome to download and print for yourself.
I encourage you to create your own series next year. I make a small desktop CD case calendar that I can keep next to where I write each morning. Each month I will have an image and an idea to think and write about in my journal.
Spending a whole month on one idea may seem like a lot of time but if you pursue it as an evolving process, where you read what you wrote before and build on it, it is actually a very fluid and interesting exercise. You may actually end up in a totally different place at month's end!
