Flickr Wednesday: Gail K Piland

This week I’m pleased to host Flickr member Gail K Piland.

This is from her profile:

My subject is an expression of the things I believe in. Like simplicity, economy, peace, love, compassion, and beauty. I am a long time mediator so Buddhist principles are often expressed visually. I have always had a love of the egg shape and the circle so that is another theme that is just a part of the way I see the world. As an art teacher it has been my privilege to help others express their inner vision. I often fancied I would like to go into retreat and spend days in meditation. I went to a Vipassana Silent Meditation for 10 days the last two years. It was awesome! My life here now in rural Georgia is conducive to almost that degree of isolation. I can meditate on my art or on my breathing it doesn’t really matter for most of any given day if I choose.

Flickr has been a rich and wonderful source of support for my work. Thank you all for visiting my stream.
