How strange that the nature of life is change, yet the nature of human beings is to resist change. And how ironic that the difficult times we fear might ruin us are the very ones that can break us open and help us blossom into who we were meant to be.” ~ Elizabeth Lesser
Since 2007 I’ve been blogging on Seeded Earth. I chose the name quickly one afternoon, as I was setting up my blog for the first time. That autumn most of the photographs I took were of landscapes, gardens, prairies, flowers, all growing things. Since these all had their beginning as seeds in the earth, I determined that Seeded Earth would be an appropriate name for my new blog.
Seeds are, indeed, good beginnings, and Seeded Earth took root and grew. It began as Seeded Earth Photography, morphed into Seeded Earth Studios when I added new products and services, and eventually became my official, government approved, business name, Seeded Earth Studios LLC.
The name served me well as I embarked on the art fair circuit and traveled in the Midwest and Southwest, showing my macro-photographs of botanicals. It worked less well as I photographed fewer landscapes and more desert-scapes. And when I added stories about the arts and healing, and more personal writing, it lost even more of its cohesiveness.
While I still love the Seeded Earth moniker, it’s time to step up and re-christen my soon to be launched website Bo Mackison. The seeded wonders and desert wonders will still be featured as I continue to post my photography, but I am expanding. I’ll be offering online photography workshops beginning in early 2014, and adding Desert Wisdom Workshops and Retreats later in the year.
Seeded Earth has grown, flowered, given fruit. Now the fruit’s seeds have burst from their container.
In a few days, my new website will be launching at BoMackison.com. Please join me soon in welcoming my newest venture (and adventure).
Bo Mackison is a photographer, book-artist, collector of stories, traveler, naturalist, curator, and still the owner of Seeded Earth Studio. Her new website at BoMackison.com will be arriving soon.
