Reflections from My Lanai

Photography has been a spiritual practice for me for more than thirty years ā€“ even when I did not recognize it as such. While I have kept a journal of my reflections for more than twenty years, I did not share my writing until three years ago when I started this blog. For some posts, the image comes first and the writing revolves around it. For others, the message is first, and I try to find the most appropriate image to illustrate the reflection. All the photographs and essays are my creation.

The topics you will find most frequently lie in the areas of science and faith, ecological spirituality, feminist spirituality, liberation theology, discussions of inspiring books, and occasionally, travel and photography. At times, a reflection will include quotations, Scripture texts, and lyrics to spiritual songs.

The primary audience for this blog consists of women and men who are lifelong learners wanting to move more deeply into faith and to make the most of their life experiences. Some are participants in adult faith programs, some are friends and confidants with whom I have shared a spiritual journey thus far, and some are spiritual writers whose blogs I follow. Secondarily, this blog is for book lovers and photographers who find links to specific posts.

Visitors to this site are always welcome. There may well be a few unanticipated audiences for whom this blog is meaningful.

  1. Doris,

    I found the first one to be beautifully peaceful in image and soul-smiling in words – my soul looks forward to more posts! (Also tempted me to make travel plans to come sit on your lanai with you – lovely!)

  2. Doris, your pilgrimage books and retreat echoed deep within my heart. I, too, love the pilgrimage theme. Thanks,

  3. Hi Doris, First thing I want to comment on is the view from your Lanai. What a beautiful and serene place. I can see why you chose this place to pray and get your inspiration. I love the idea of your book that might now be on the back burner. I have not read a lot of “spiritual books that have contained all the above you have mentioned. Your Photography along with music,quotes,reflection, etc. would make a wonderful book. I especially think the photographs that you have taken all over the world along with a reflection would be soothing reading. Jane F.

    1. Jane, thank you for your comments and your encouragement. When I said the book was on the back burner, I meant it was “off the stove.” Your kind words are encouraging me to give the idea of a book of reflections a second thought.
