My CotM Sketchbook - Spring of 2018

A Living Diorama

10 years, 3 months, 27 days later and I am officially back in the exhibits game. Monday I report in at 9AM to get my Cave of Mounds staff shirt. I just bought blue outdoor pants on my way home from my first meeting with them a few hours ago. On Tuesday of last week I heard about an opportunity there. After careful thought I then presented my portfolio and an idea to the staff. It worked. I'm hired! It's a new beginning for me. I am so thrilled to be working with passionate folks who are obviously so invested in preserving and presenting a National Landmark! I have this giant, LIVING diorama to get to know and work on. On top is an ancient Oak Savannah to save. Underneath is a cavern whose depths I've only seen from the tourists' perspective. I am going to bet that I won't sleep tonight...

    Greeting His Holiness
    Greeting His Holiness

    Ngawang Kunga, Sakya Trizin Emeritus (now known as Kyabgon Gongma Trichen Rinpoche) is greeted on his first visit to Deer Park Buddhist center & Monastery just outside of Madison, Wisconsin. He is considered to be second only to the Dalai lama in the spiritual hierarchy of Tibetan Buddhism. His lineage is an ancient one, and he is thought of as the very personification of the Wisdom of the Buddha. I had the absolute honor of being asked to come photograph his arrival, and this intimate greeting in his quarters by the monks of Deer Park. I cannot wait to go photograph his upcoming teaching session at the Temple! When I needed to learn more about compassion the Dalia Lama himself appeared in my life a few years ago. At a time when I know I need to bolster my wisdom, and I've been writing about my sense that it's time to transform again, the Buddha again appears. How is so that I find myself in the presence of just the sort of knowledge and guidance just when I need it? I am truly blessed. I can no longer take it for granted but will embrace this opportunity. I didn't need to go climb frozen mountains in Asia to find this resource. I simply moved to Wisconsin of all places and it was here waiting for me.
