Contemplative Photography & Reflections

Water Lily Reverie

Recently, I made a commitment to myself to meditate every day. Usually I do mindfulness meditation, but sometimes I do guided meditation in which there is instruction to visualize yourself in a place in which you feel most relaxed and at peace. The image that has been coming up for me is floating in my kayak on a leisurely, summer afternoon amidst luminous, white water lilies.


I wanted to share the sensation of floating gently from one exquisite water lily to the next, guided by joy and beauty. So I partnered with ambient musician, Roy Mattson, to produce a short video. I feel that Roy’s shimmering, tinkling, radiating sounds provide a perfect voice for water lilies and the energy they emanate. I hope that by watching it, you will be transported into a state of relaxation!
