The Standing Now
The photographic wanderings of Bob Fergeson and the poetic endeavors of Shawn Nevins share a common theme: the standing now.
"Nunc fluens facit tempus, nunc stans facit aeternitatem."
The passing now makes time, the standing now makes eternity.
It is the moment we all share, when our self-concern is swept away by the wispy hems of clouds, the bone branches of an ancient evergreen, or the cool, impassive face of an alpine lake—when a pause in the passing now of our short lives reveals eternity.
In this superb collection of spiritual poetry and photography, Bob and Shawn combine forces to create a book that has best been described as "like Rumi with a Nikon." Opening to any page is an invitation to meditation.
