 Barbara's Journey

I began with the simple intention of taking a walking journey into a nature preserve called Green Earth Supertrail in Carbondale Illinois, USA. At the entrance was a sign asking me to check my shoes to prevent the spread of invasive species. I too am an invasive species, a foreigner to this land. Upon entering the woods I disturbed a deer family and watched a deer followed by a buck bounding off into bushes. I spent my time journeying with the camera--filming the environment with a heightened sense of colour, light and sound. Sometimes I found myself standing still with the camera, other times walking with the camera. Sometimes entering a sound conversation with the birds, other times silent. I left the sanctuary with a sense of attentive fullness in the moment. Grateful for the sequestered time with the local and transplanted ancestors of this land. June 23, 2012
