Finding Peace in the New Year

Posted by Robin Easton

Dear friends, I closed out the year by photographing a nearby river at sunset.  It was quiet, and the waning light cast everything in silhouettes and gently muted tones. (SEE PHOTOS BELOW.) I’ve made a commitment to simplify my life in the New Year, so I am going to keep this post simple. As I welcome 2012 I want to thank each of you for the warmth, inspiration, and love you have brought into my life. You have had [...] Continue Reading…

Finding Sanity Through Awareness and Action

Posted by Robin Easton

This is the last in a series of posts that explores sanity and insanity. As we saw in previous posts and comments, sanity is perceived differently by different people, and your thoughts inspired me, and at times moved me to tears. I think one of the most important expressions of sanity is found in our actions to treat ourselves, others, and the natural world with respect and reverence. All life coming after us will need clean air, water, and [...] Continue Reading…

What Do You See? Caption Contest

A Song of Sanity

Posted by Robin Easton

This is the second in a series of posts that explore perceptions of sanity and insanity. To read the first post in this series, click this title: “Seeing for the First Time”.
We tend to think of insanity in a clinical and individual sense: mental disorders, sick minds, and so on. I remember someone saying that an insane person does not know that she or he is insane, since what they are doing seems perfectly normal to them, while their [...] Continue Reading…

Seeing for the First Time

Posted by Robin Easton

This is the first in a series of posts that explore perceptions of sanity and insanity.
Sometimes we experience events that shatter or rattle our lifelong way of thinking, feeling, behaving, and being.  We might feel confused, disoriented, and could even feel like we are going insane. At the time, this can seem like a traumatic experience, but when we look back in retrospect, we might see that those events actually were gifts. I was lucky to have this happen [...] Continue Reading…
