As a child I was often found sitting in a tree, on the earth touching and talking with the plants or playing in some moving water. Loving the secure feeling of a tree holding me, admiring the shapes and colors of his leaves and feeling the varied designs of the bark. Floating sticks and building dams with stones of all shapes and colors, I was transfixed watching the water flow over, around and past...
As an adult I recapture these feelings of childish delight with every branch and twig of a tree, every leaf and stone picked up and placed in my pocket. Climbing about and sitting in silence on wise, ancient, welcoming boulders, I continue to find connection with the deep blue river flowing by.
My experience is that connecting with nature heals and strengthens me. I discover deep inside myself a "knowing" that I am not alone. I am intimately connected with Mother Earth and "all my relations".
My hope is that my photography can be a step on the path to this "knowing" for you. That by observing my photographs from nature, feelings will be stirred and you will feel the desire pulling you to wander in nature and have your own personal experiences.
