“Within you is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and by yourself.”

Forest, Fog, Trees, Spring


“While Eeyore frets …
… and Piglet hesitates
… and Rabbit calculates
… and Owl pontificates
…Pooh just is.”

Time in the forest, that supreme place of sanctuary and stillness, is a  way of beauty and of finding the stillness and sanctuary within yourself…

a place to just be…

Be who you are.

A Sanctuary of Peace and Refuge

Zion.  The word evokes a place of sanctuary – of peace and refuge.  The majestic red rocks of Zion National Park are in a state of continual change.  The feeling of ancient wisdom, calm, peace,  and movement – of evolving – are so palpable here.   A deep knowing energy pervades the air, the earth, the rocks.

Zion, Big Rocks


“Has joy any survival value in the operations of evolution?

I suspect that it does…”
