Counting the Omer with Visual Journaling - Day 34

Today is the 34th day, making four weeks and six days of the Omer.  Foundation within Presence / Bonding in Humility:  Yesod within Hod.  The image on the left is from a photograph I took at dusk at Ghost Ranch, Arizona in 2011.  One of the great pleasures of the Mishkan Shalom Jewish Mindfulness program there was being able to have evening prayers out of doors, as the sun was setting over the mountains that were so familiar from Georgia O'Keefe's paintings.  The qualities of light she painted really are how it is.  This horizon was just a small hill facing the cabins we were staying in.  Georgia O'Keefe's home and studio were nearby.

This year:  a great day of making monoprints yesterday.  Christine Staughton is an inspiring teacher and I moved into new territory.  Today I led a SoulCollage® workshop, and tomorrow will deliver two pieces to be juried for an ARTISTS Against Hunger Exhibit. 

Rabbi Yael Levy chose Psalm 119:34 for this day of Yesod within Hod: "May I have the understanding to cherish the journey and care for it with all my heart."  Her translation makes it come alive for me.  Just this one line alone says it all.
