A favorite painting of mine, it is the second of a trilogy of images created in response to a powerful robe ceremony at Crater Lake. The Zen ritual was led by my teacher Gary and shared with my two other sangha sisters, Denice and Brooke. We had climbed to a thousand feet above the sacred lake and were gathered at the edge of a sheer cliff. Our eagle Gary spread his arm-wings wide and called to us "The way is not safe! Lead with your heart!" In this image, she (we) has surrendered to Trust as she steps off the edge into the vast unknown.

It Felt Love
HowDid the roseEver open its heartAnd give the worldAll its Beauty?
It felt encouragement of lightAgainst its Being,
Otherwise,We all remain
