Notes from the Universe
My childhood was filled with lessons about nature delivered aptly by my parents. The natural world became a foundational source of connection and solace. When my mother passed away suddenly in 2011, followed by the decline and death of my father in 2017, walks in nature became a way to process the long-term grief of their loss. The grief was renewed by the massive loss of life during the pandemic and these walks became a refuge to re-connect with nature in an intimate and mindful way. I feel that preordained scenes present themselves as a means to shed light on greater teachings of life, much like my original lessons in nature. These visual Notes from the Universe represent how the fragility of life is both connected and ephemeral.
