Wildlife Art; Elk Animal Totem

"A human being is part of the whole, called by us "Universe," a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole [of] nature in its beauty. ~ Albert Einstein 1950

We can learn a lot from Einstein, widening our compassion......learning to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

I am have decided to start creating wildlife art from some of my photographs and create animal totems, weaving them into my journey of creative expression with horses.

Elk represents stamina and the ability to pace oneself. Sometimes we feel so unbalanced and feel like we will never meet our goals. Elk shows up when you are about to hit your stride in life; don't give up, have endurance for the long run >>>> DETERMINATION!!

If we balance our pragmatic "to do" lists with our passions, our life will fall into place easily and effortlessly! When we do too much we tire, become frustrated and disappointed - all negative energies. When we dream and fly around in creation we often can't get anything done for life is a high. So BALANCE the two and see what happens!

Trust the journey,
