One of our assignments during the Miksang Institute Summer Program was titled “Simplicity—the Relationship of Form and Space”. Out of ten images submitted for review, only one of mine hit the mark! These were photographed a couple of days later, and might have been judged acceptable…or maybe not.

I’ll keep working on it.

  1. April, These are wonderful! I also went to the Miksang Course
    for the first week, thanks to your referral. When I told Michael how you had inspired me, he said something like “Ah, April! Yes, a great lady…”

    I found the course a great challenge. Pearl Street still haunts me, although I find myself wandering into alleys alot these days.

    I think I learned a great deal from Michael and Julie! What
    performance anxiety! But I found my stride the last two days…and went home exhausted and at peace.

    I hope, someday I will get to meet you in person! I asked
    Michael to do another course in Italy…(fingers crossed)

    Fond Regards, and thank you again for your referral!

  2. What a shame we didn’t get to meet while you were in Boulder, Sara! But I’m delighted you were able to attend a session there, and enjoyed the experience. I enjoy viewing your images, and suspect our paths will cross in future on this journey. 🙂

    Did you know it was Roland Vögtli who inspired me to explore Miksang? He said the course he took years ago with Michael and Julie in the Netherlands had a profound influence on his photography, and I can see that!

    Re Italy, my husband and I are considering a trip there next summer. But according to your TME profile, you live in Massachusetts…?

    In any event, it’s such a pleasure to know you’re a fellow traveler in this practice.
