A Nature Spirit Story at Clingman’s Dome

A Nature Spirit Story at Clingman’s Dome

“Down here, come photograph my area,” a nature spirit said from below me. I was at Clingman’s Dome, in the Smokey Mountains, at a cliffside rest area, photographing a panoramic sunset with a group of photographer friends. It was a cloudy evening, not much sun but...
Ant People Rescued Native Americans

Ant People Rescued Native Americans

This cliff sculpture commemorates when the Ant People rescued Native Americans not once but twice. This occurred when the earth was destroyed – first by fire and then by ice – and one earth world passed into another. It is told down through the...
Bryce Canyon HooDoos

Bryce Canyon HooDoos

Bryce Canyon in south-central Utah is, to me, a magical land filled with giant rock beings – HooDoos – each with their own personality and story. The HooDoos live in large communities that have fortunately been preserved by the USA in a 56.2 mile national...

Cairns

I posted a blog about Rock Balancing with spectacular images of formations by Marty Grab. Check out that blog to see his work! In this blog I want to show you some of the many rock balancing formations I’ve come across in my travels. I call them...
Chiricahua HooDoos

Chiricahua HooDoos

Here are some stone beings I communicated with at the Chiricahua National Monument, Cochise County, Arizona. How does such communication take place? I can describe what it means for me. It means shifting my internal focus by “consciousness...
Elfin Love Story

Elfin Love Story

This complex “natural” mural depicts one of the oldest stories there is – love lost. The story tells of an elfin lover abandoning his sweetheart for the spiritual life, with her still longing for him into old age! Now I ask you in wonderment. How is...
Hoo Doos in Arizona

Hoo Doos in Arizona

Here are three views of some HooDoos – large stone figures that to early settlers of the west looked magical. These HooDoos are from my day off when shopping the Tucson Gem Show to get new specimens for you, our customers and colleagues.The images are of a very...
My Rock Spirit Family

My Rock Spirit Family

My feet took me to a hillside strewn with boulders large and small, and the prevailing stone energy was so soothing that I sought an appropriate place to sit and center. Guided to a large, peaceful boulder, I sat in yogic cross-legged style in a cubbyhole at its base...
Native American Altars

Native American Altars

As I travel about the country, I am occasionally requested by local spirits to assist in cleaning up or honoring ancient altars that have been desecrated or fallen into disuse. The altars are very natural ones, made of stone, and having, I have learned over time,...
Private Area

Private Area

I love this stone. It is in the Japanese Garden at the Chicago Botanical Garden. Stout rope around a large rock – an ancient Japanese symbol meaning “Private area; please respect and do not enter.” How wonderful to use such an organic...
Rock Balancing

Rock Balancing

I love cairns – those wonderful constructions of stone that serve as way markers helping travelers to find a path through desolate areas. In my travels, I’ll often photograph cairns some unknown person or persons have created. Areas abundant...
Some New Rock Friends

Some New Rock Friends

Thought you folks would enjoy visiting with a few new friends I made last week-end, at a macro-photography workshop in which we explored going up close…      
The HooDoo Rocks of Mt. Lemmon, AZ

The HooDoo Rocks of Mt. Lemmon, AZ

Each February I attend the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show. It’s the largest gem show in the world, and it’s where I discover and bring back many of the unusual specimens you can find at Crystal Life. Each trip I usually take a day off to photograph some area...
The Other Side of the Story

The Other Side of the Story

There are our friends who are human – and our friends from other dimensions. Sometimes it’s hard to say who I am more comfortable with! Like all friends, my nature spirit friends constantly reveal new aspects to themselves. It’s all part of the fun...
The Power of Waiting

The Power of Waiting

Waiting. Patience. These energies come in very handy when photographing nature spirits. I learned their value from a wonderful nature photography instructor, Fred Drury. He took his nature photography class to Starved Rock, where we were to practice winter...
The Three Wise Men

The Three Wise Men

Here’s one of my favorite HooDoos from Mt. Lemmon in Arizona – I call it the Three Wisemen and Their Camel. This group overlooks the valley and into the distance – they look like they are searching and traveling…I made a Christmas Card out of...
Vision Quest Canyon

Vision Quest Canyon

Here’s a trio of images taken at a natural, unrecognized vision quest site in Rimrock, Southern Illinois. Once again nature amazes me in how he/she creates such complex energetic structures. And how the “old time” medicine people were so able to draw...
Watchers and Friend

Watchers and Friend

I was walking along a path through the woods, in North Conway, NH, when I came upon this trio of rock spirit guardians. The woods are in an old farming community area, where the tough granite that underlies much of the land had pushed up here and there. This is the...
Water Spirit at Chicago Botannical Gardens

Water Spirit at Chicago Botannical Gardens

I was at the Chicago Botanic Garden photographing. When I downloaded this photo and enlarged it, I saw a little water spirit shaped like a gingerbread man in the second waterfall from the left. I’m thoroughly enjoying reading your book “We Are Not Alone. . .” I feel...
Working with the Stone World

Working with the Stone World

I must admit I love working with stones most of all; next are tree spirits…and then everything else! Of the stones, my favorites are the quartz family, a large group composed of clear quartz, rose quartz, amethyst, citrine, carnelian, smokey quartz and assorted other...
