Grandview Beach, Leucadia, CA, New Year’s Day 2010

And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.
William Shakespeare

These images are the product of an intensely spiritual afternoon;  I refer to them when I need to remember the world is a magical, beautiful place…  which seems to be happening more and more frequently these days.  Taken around Grandview Beach, in Leucadia, CA on New Year’s Day 2010, I felt as though I was walking within a dreamscape and all the world had been rendered to watercolor; the walls between worlds seemed thinner and blurred somehow, the temperature never varied and was neither hot nor cold, and the light remained in a constant state of  in-between.

It is true that Nature can quiet even the most broken of hearts;  this gallery is dedicated to everyone whose heart is breaking from the horrific violence and senseless death in Norway, in India, and everywhere else; to everyone whose mind is reeling from the climate of overwhelming disrespect so perfectly showcased by our media and our political leaders, and to those who simply wish to live, separate and apart from the madness.

Moonlight Beach, Encinitas, CA November 2010

One of the most intensely spiritual places I’ve ever frequented  is Moonlight Beach in Encinitas, CA.  In the evenings, as the sun makes its majestic descent into the horizon, the locals gather on the shore.  Some practice tai chi, some practice yoga, others just walk for miles  along the edge of the water, immersed in the white- noise- crash of the waves.  This is a series of images I took there last November.
