Anna Hergert facilitated the experience, and I'm grateful to have been a participant in this "invitation only" event.

|St. Peter's Abbey - our home away from home for the week. (I took this photo last year - we had sunnier skies this year!)|
Out of respect, I kept my camera pointed at my own work. Unfortunately, my project is currently in "stealth mode", but rest assured - I'll blab about it later!
In the meantime, I'll share some pictures I made after Anna introduced the idea of Nalanda Miksang photography.
Anna led an exercise in recognizing "Moments of Perception".
Right up my alley!
I had fun making abstract compositions for the rest of the week!
Light and shadows, reflection and glow, lines and angles, oh my!
I felt something click in my brain when I read the Miksang book I'd borrowed from Anna.
I could feel myself moving from "documenting" to "art making".
It matters not what the subject is, but what we see when noticing those moments of perception.
Moments are fleeting - there, and gone - as the light changes.
Rather like life.
It's up to us to grab those beautiful moments before they disappear!
Fresh off the Frame
We are 100% moved and I'm pleased to announce that my new studio is officially up and running, full speed ahead!
Youth Challenge - 2nd Place Winner!
I'm pleased to report that my granddaughter's quilt won second place in the judged competition for her age group!
|The P R Bridge, by Laina|
The challenge theme was "Your Place in Canada", and the challenge fabric was the red batik Laina used for her speedboat.
Congratulations on your accomplishment, Laina!!!
Try, Learn, & Grow!
