Zoom In, Around and Out

“Nature’s music is never over; her silences are pauses, not conclusions.” – Mary Webb

“Look and think before opening the shutter. The heart and mind are the true lens of the camera.” – Yousuf Karsh

On the first lap around Como Lake, an eagle appeared on the left, floating and then swooping down to the lake to capture its prey with rapt focus, attention and execution. After landing, he stood on the remaining thin ice savoring his dinner.

On the second lap, the eagle was now in a tree looking all around and soaking in the fractured light of the sun setting through the clouds. Focusing with the same rapt attention on the wide as the narrow.

Throughout the day, change up your view to see wider, farther, closer, larger and smaller. Broaden and deepen your perspective through all lens – microscope, wide-angle and telescope.

Suddenly you’ll see the complexity and beauty in places, people and within as opinions, judgment and assumptions fall away. Beauty and grace enter to hold you in that space of possibility and abundance.
