goddess #20

cattails in the snow
birds calling softly against a background
of cars rushing by
stillness in the midst of clamor.

may all being dwell in the stillness

Behind route 1 in Dedham, a commercial artery jammed with stores and traffic, lies a peaceful waterway, part of the Charles River, that zig-zags back on itself and spreads out in parts into marsh filled with cattails. I've canoed these waters, meeting blue herons, turtles, red-winged blackbirds, and other creatures of the wild. Amazingly, this natural world exists just yards away from traffic and commerce, a peaceful oasis in an otherwise suburban landscape.


  1. I love your project. Beautiful and amazing. I'll be checking back!


  2. That these little hidden sanctuaries exist sort of invisibly right next to the density and frenzy of Rte 1. I don't think most people are aware of them, really. Just we artists.
