181. twilight over the trees in minneapolis

clouds dancing

to the dwindling light

lingering in the sky

deep blues

bright oranges

they collide

into the clouds

soft ethereal skin

bathing in divine radiance

when clouds start forming

know that a storm may come

darkness will envelop you

rain will fall

so go outside

face the rain and start dancing

remember always

high beyond the clouds

the sun is shining


152. golfo de nicoya

out at sea

thoughts process in different patterns

not the familiar, solid earth underneath your feet

deep waters meet the skies above

the horizon stretches out

beckoning your gaze beyond what the eye can hold when on land

you see far, yet you walk little

the contradicting situation grants you a moment

to sit still and contemplate the vastness

to remind oneself of the smallness of you

of the limitlessness of life

and the fact that you are part of it

thus, in fact, you are not small

you are endless


146. gratitude

getting together

breaking bread

sharing memories

laughing out loud

holding the space

living in love

giving thanks

for every breath

for every one

for every moment

is a gift we get to live

in love, of love, for love

thank you

gracias

134. talamanca

the first rays of the sun caress the mountains and dance with the clouds

a new day begins

light comes in through our eyes, into our hearts and minds, warming our body and soul

igniting us to wake up and embrace the gift of a new day

no matter what came before, or what will come after

only what you have right now, within you

let it shine and light the world up with love


128. creation

just as the sky forms beautiful sculptures out of thin air, reflecting all colors, shapes and sizes, so can you be the sculptor of your own reality

work with what this world has given you

accept everything you are and everything you are not

give thanks for everything that has been given and taken away from you

create not for you, but for the joy of creating

create for everyone!

let your creations be in service to light and freedom, love and laughter

go, play!

in the words of mark whitwell, stop looking, start doing


119. playa sombrero

dawn yielding to sun rising over península de osa

at its emptiest, the low tide reveals the rock lines at the bottom of the ocean

waking with the sunrise, the slombering waves begin to swell


112. the bean

resembling the orb we live in, the silver bean reflects its surroundings and bends them along its curves.

in it, i see a beautiful metaphor of life, and the funny ways it twists and bends and comes back around to greet you.

to embrace you.

its given name by anish kapoor, its creator, is ‘cloud gate’.

a fitting frame for chicago’s backyard, the millennium park.


111. sunset in san francisco

the sun setting in san francisco is one rare, beautiful gift I get to see from my window.

the ever present clouds part for a little while sometimes, letting the splendorous sun warm us before it takes a dip in the pacific ocean.

the rolling hills, the houses, trees, dogs and their owners revel in the tiny bits of sunshine that surprise us every now and then.


107. a struggling relationship

the natural and the artificial.

that which is created naturally has always been the source of inspiration for that which has been crafted artificially by human beings since time immemorial.

our ingeniousness to fabricate machines to mimic the natural world and make our lives “easier” has grown out of control into a plethoric dependency we now can not do without.

our inevitable, unavoidable, addictive dependency on machines, and pillaging the earth to make, build and fuel these, has turned our relationship with the planet into a living paradox.

machines encompass everything from where we live, to the way we get around, from the way we communicate, to the comfort that we have come to expect.

it is an insatiable delusion for control that has caused us to ultimately ravage and destroy this planet, our home.

we now have almost complete control over our environment, time and space.

but at what cost?

we must reconsider our relationship with our planet and one another from one of dominion to one of communion.
