How do you find the Divine? How does your life unfold in ways that allow the God/Goddess/Infinite, however you name “it”, where is that sacredness found?
I’ve been pondering this for a long while, my whole life if truth be known. I am a seeker, a wanderer on the spiritual path, looking, tasting, reading, praying, chanting, searching…
I am also a photographer. Not a professional mind you, only someone who loves looking through the lens of a camera and seeing and finding delight. Over the years that delight has been in the form of photographs of my kids, of my family, of my home… It’s also been looking at the world where I live, the sky, the flowers, the buildings, the birds, the interesting combinations of color, light, texture and elements that provoke a mood, a thought or a story.
Recently I have decided to challenge myself to take a photo daily, one that I call, Finding the Divine in the Daily. It’s a challenge for me. I love taking photos, but finding something that is considered photo worthy, during my day…..well, that is an entirely different game. It makes me look at my world, and identify, name, and honor the sacredness of my daily life. It’s finding the magic in the everydayness of yesterday and today.
I’ve been shooting pictures since I was a teenager. Now at 60, I’m finding reasons to shoot photos that don’t include family or posing or “for the record”, I’m looking for the sacred.
I must admit, I am not really sure what I will do with all these photos, but I love the that I spend at least part of my daily life, seeking the sacred in the daily.
