Everyone who knows me well, is aware of my spirituality but lack of religion. Religion fascinates me and I really enjoy taking photographs of religious symbolism. I also delight in painting and creating all things spiritual sometimes combining visual imagery from various beliefs. In my studies over the years, I have found that all of the major religions have a dark side and each also has light and joy in their teachings. I was raised in a Christian home where abuse was the norm including much of it within the Church. I have seen the seedy side for sure. But Easter is meant to be a celebration that expresses life and renewal! It has both both Pagan and Christian roots. Whatever your leanings, it is a day to look around you and breath in the goodness of this earth. To be thankful for the life that you are living. Whether it is brunch with good friends, a walk on the beach or a family gathering with food and festivities…….It’s Spring! Happy Easter!
