How fun! I love this blog – Abbey of the Arts – and the connection to spirituality through art, and the fun contests every month or so. I finally decided to go forward (ha!) and enter this one. Here’s the link if you’d like to play as well.
I submitted five meditative landscape photos. Here’s one of my favorites. I was walking backroads connected to Soprabolzano, Italy. After going DOWN for an hour or so, I realized that I would have to now go back UP. With no water. My husband was off riding motorcycles and no one knew where I was. And this was a pretty lonely area! I tried to wave down one of those little three wheel work trucks with two Italian men in the front, but they kept going. I took this shot as I walked back up. I was deliriously happy at this point with extremely achy feet. I think the dehydration was really affecting my brain at this point. Shortly after this, I finally reached the top, laid under a tree and took photos of the sun through the leaves. I thought, when they find my poor little overheated body at least they will be able to trace my steps. Needless to say, I recovered rapidly once I had some pasta, water and several glasses of red wine overlooking the Rosengarten view.
