Remember me

reflection2a

You have no idea how hard I’ve looked
for a gift to bring You.
Nothing seemed right.
What’s the point of bringing gold
to the gold mine, or water to the ocean.
Everything I came up with was like
taking spices to the Orient.
It’s no good giving my heart and my
soul because you already have these.
So I’ve brought you a mirror.
Look at yourself and remember me.
 – Jalal al-Din Rumi

Going through archives late last night during mountain rain storm, making images & editing them is very much like meditation for me, either you’re in ‘the zone’ or you’re not,  trick is staying in it; whether you’re making images or flying a jet plane, whatever it is stay focused & allow enough space for the profound to occur & play. Once told a friend you have to let go, in order to hang on. Anyway, enough of my Sunday afternoon rant, hope you enjoy the new images, trying to share more of the past projects online. -B

Aside from myself and the person in the image there’s only been one other person, who I felt comfortable enough with when she visited us, to show the lion’s share of work we created since moving to NC. -B
