The goal of my journey is to see with heightened awareness, the natural beauty of the world around me. But what is heightened awareness? For the young Goshawk seen here, it probably relates to an alertness concerning food potential and threats. As an attribute of my artistic journey though, heightened awareness is perhaps like wisdom, the product, of knowledge and experience. I’ve gained knowledge by being mindfully, on the road. My thoughts have been coloured by experiential emotions and practice feeds my spirit and informs my journey. The more I practice, the more I see with heightened awareness. The more I see, the deeper the experience.
