From the collection “A View From the Gorge”. Art inspired by the Columbia Valley River Gorge.
It is tempting to stand in the gorge and view the beauty through the window of a camera lens in a (mostly) futile attempt to capture its vastness and grandeur. It has become my practice to make time to sit – to feel the wind, listen to soaring falcons and crows, look at the movement of light and the enveloping mist and let my mind capture the moment, unfiltered.
Love, honesty, and expression are what clean the window of our heart. And each time we inhabit love, honesty, and expression, we thin the window between in-here and out-there a little more, and this thinning between our inner world and the outer world brings us closer to life.
