As the statement for this project makes clear - this collection has been about a meditative experience for me; new scenery, in a new place, apart from an older life, a place of healing and serenity.
At first my titles were my usual poorly thought-out conventions: Sea Meditations 1 thru 12...
I wanted to give the images something more and titles were they way to do it.
I researched "meditation" in general and eventually decided on names of known Buddhists monks - but this was not broad enough and the appeal was not wide enough for me. So I changed tactic and widen my search to include Buddhists from around the world...then I found the gods.
So the names are a mix of Buddhist names from around the world and from the lexicon of their gods.
How did I choose which name for which image? It was a matter of selecting the name I liked first, then observing the images until it I felt a match on my heart.
