sitting quietly

Sitting quietly, doing nothing, 

Spring comes, and the grass grows by itself.

a 15th century anthology of Zen,
Taoist, and Buddhist teachings

love everything

All action is prayer.
All trees are desire-fulfilling.
All water is the Ganga.
All land is Varanasi.
Love everything.

capturing the living poem

Peter Bowers is a self-taught photographer.

Whether in a canoe or on skis he is called
by the early morning light or the shadows of dusk.

He enjoys the changing elements of mist and snow and
the shapes and textures of the living landscape.

His images invite the viewer into the stillness and solitude
of wild places, capturing the sensory experience in a visual language.
