While I was mind surfing the Salt Creek waves, Brown Pelicans were gracefully riding the Southern California curls…
I love finding the minute details in such ordinary things. Take for instance this one single wave. There are waves rolling up the beach every few seconds and yet here is this one moment in time – a true meditation in mindfulness…
Another day in Dana Point, CA at dusk and another Doheny Beach surf session complete!
A misty morning just south of Modesto, CA. Looking into the Almond Tree groves toward infinity…
A rough, rusty barb wire fence and then the beauty as a small bird takes flight in Lynch Canyon Open Space…
Sunset and driftwood near Capistrano Beach, CA.

Nature is one of many connections to empowerment and energy – there is a wealth of space and clarity when surrounded in nature.
2011 was a year of travel for me. I have been researching energy vortexes and meditation within nature for my soon to be released book, The Responsive Universe. I have visited some amazing places within the United States in an effort to center myself and connect to the sublime energy found so prevalent in nature.
I was intrigued by the space of the Great Plains and the majestic presence of the Rocky Mountains. The deserts and canyons of Utah showed rugged beauty even amidst desolation. Sedona was enchanting and nothing seems more inviting than the Pacific Ocean which I visited in both California and Hawaii.
There is so much inspiration and energy to be discovered within nature – each scenic vista so different from the last but each unique and memorable. Even a sunset in your backyard can be inspiring. On the long winding path to self-discovery and enlightenment use nature as a tool to connect to the sublime – to energy and dynamism.
From energy we were born – from nature we evolved – find your connection to the natural environment that surrounds us and connects to something grander than just grand.
