It has been some time, a month, actually, since I have posted. It’s been a time of experiencing nature without the need or effort of chronicling the experience.

This experience is a spiritual one and today I brought my camera. I think nature is God’s way, the Spirit’s way of speaking to us. It’s rare that I connect the spiritual experience to the human one. But, like I said, today I brought my camera.

What I found to be most profound is what I see as the image of the cross. I think it’s safe to say this image created by the early morning sun reflected on the water and spread across the horizon has been visible to the world as long as there has been a world. Of course, before Christ’s Crucifixion it was not seen as the image of the cross. But after the Resurrection the icon of the crucifix resonated deeply because of this image in the natural world. That is, it was already in our collective memory as a spiritual image before it became a religious icon.AnticipationCrossCrucifixThe First Sunrise
