Sand Mirrors is a marriage of poetry by Zen teacher Richard Clarke and photographs by Stephen Strom. The poems beckon the reader to explore the inner and outer richness of sand and ocean - richness beyond all imagination and dream. It speaks to fleeting and timeless patterns on Northern California and Oregon coasts, and through understated but powerful words, reminds us that all our life is now, and has nothing to do with transience or duration. . . The images in Sand Mirrors -- which might be called metaphorical photographs — were taken on a variety of beaches located in the Pacific Northwest coasts during 2007-2011. These beaches are notable for their relative isolation, expanse, stark uplifted and eroded rocks, backdrop of richly foliated coastal cliffs, and a variety of sandy minerals. . . Together, the poems and images aspire to invite viewers to “quiet wonder at these few inches of sand that proclaim perfection” and to remind them in the words of Lao Tzu “to the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.” . . soft cover, 104 pages, 51 photographs, 8" x 8" . $35 + $5 shipping by Priority Mail within 2 days of receipt of order.
