Two Views of the Dock

dock on South Watuppa Pond

“I just completed a spiritual photography project that was inspired by my experience during the 19th Annotation version of the Spiritual Exercises. I am an artist and was actually surprised to discover that God spoke to me visually a lot. The Exercises taught me to pay attention to where my heart leapt. It had leapt many times before but I didn’t spend time with that, or wonder at its invitation. My heart continually leapt every time I came to this spot on the dock. By the grace of God, I listened. I was filled in ways beyond my imagination and continue to be. God is so good and very fun!

“The full project is at my blog: This is where I picture God.”

I love seeing the variation in these photos from the ‘same’ spot. And the words Jamie writes I find inspirational- I hope I can notice where my heart has leapt also, and spend time there.

How lucky you were to have the opportunity to do that and for the view in the first place. Just looked at your blog; liked it a lot.

What a beautiful insight, to recognize the leaping of your heart and the significance of that happening in the same spot! I looked at your photo essay on your blog and felt some of what you must feel in this special place. I too look at the sky every morning and am moved by God’s presence.

I made a small book of photographs I had taken on Iona — just one for each week of the Exercises, plus maybe the beginning and end — as a gift. (I made a copy for myself as well; wonder where it is . . . . . I so enjoy using photography in prayer, and your images of the same but changed spot are wonderful.

There is so much that can be said about this picture, but it is definitely worth spending some quiet time with. I think it speaks volumes!
