Skagit River, Northern Washington State, USA

Anishinaabekwe, the Daughter,  You are the keepers of the water.
I am Nibi…water…the sacred source,  The blood of Aki, Mother Earth,
The force filling dry seeds to great bursting.  I am the wombs cradle.
I purify.

Nibi, the life giver…  Forever the Circle’s charge
I have coursed through our Mother’s Veins.  Now hear my sorrow and my pain
In the river’s rush, the rain…

I am your grandchildren’s drink.
Listen, Daughters, always.
You are the keepers of the water.
Hear my cry,
For the springs flow darkly now  Through the heart of Aki
American Indian, Ojibwa, Minnesota

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.
