My main intent when “writing with light” is to express your basic goodness or celebrate your essence and to create favorable conditions for that to emerge. I stand for the healing power of deeply seeing and being seen and the courage it takes to live in those infinite moments.
One Photographer’s Prayer
May our time together be a living prayer.
May it evoke your true nature and reflect your true gifts.
May it celebrate your miraculousness.
May our love and nature express itself in this moment.
May I experience you as if for the first time, wide-eyed and awe-struck.
May I be fully present to your light and reflect it as light.
May my head, hand and heart go together.
May I see deeply for deep seeing is loving.
May our stillness shine forth.
Who could ask for anything more?
