A-Z Blog Challenge 2015 Balance Beauty Fox Lake Memories One Yukon Minute Philosophy Yukon

Y: Yukon meditation

In 2012 I did a series of one minute films that I called “one Yukon minute.” The idea was to spend one minute in meditation, looking at a photograph…except it would be a living photograph, with movement and sound. Serene. Tranquil. Something to reflect on and calm the mind. A moving meditation, so to speak.

Taking a moment – even just one minute – to stop and mediate on something beautiful helps to bring balance to our lives. Each film is one minute long. Here are two of my favourites:

Filmed October 7, 2012. Sunset at the Fox Lake house.

and…

One month later, November 10, 2012. The beginning of freeze-up at the Fox Lake house.

YI’m participating in the Blogging From A-Z challenge.  One blog post for each letter of the alphabet, each day of April (except Sunday)

  1. Oh, that’s such a wonderful idea. I wish I’d thought of it before I left Arizona. I miss it so much, and if I had gone out in my own property and taken films all year long, or driven out into my favorite desert areas, it would bring me so much peace now! I couldn’t predict how I’d feel ten years later, though. =)
