it's nature's way (and john fielder's)


photo image john fielder donated to denver health

So many come to the sickroom thinking of themselves as men of science fighting disease and not as healers with a little knowledge helping nature to get a sick man well. - Sir Auckland Geddes

this photo has been added to the lobby of pavillion a at denver health and was unveiled in a small ceremony today. the photographer john fielder was present and talked a little about his work, his relatioship to work, nature, and his relationship to that. his perspective abouut nature and healing is that they are connected. nature is the major healing force. it's a beautiful perspective. i certainly can vouch for both the miracle of medical science and the completely transforming majesty of a good night's sleep.
 
just as powerful might be his donated image. filters on the camera allow for the sun to be captured in this fashion. my impression of the photo is a very spiritual and very hopeful one. and i'm happy i'll see it now and again as i meander through my workday.

you can see more of john's work at his site

this is one of my old school faves... allison limerick with "this mortal coil" doing a 1991 cover version of "nature's way" originally by a band named "spirit"
