At a time in her life when beauty felt in short supply, healthcare chaplain Lisa Lundeen turned to nature's bright colors and tidy symmetry for soothing. She began what became a flourishing spiritual practice of botanical photography, often floral portraits, on walks through gardens and woods.
Years later, insomnia struck during the worldwide pandemic, and Lundeen again looked to art for healing. Rooting into her Quaker tradition of sitting in quiet, expectant waiting for the sacred to draw close, this time Lundeen spent the dark hours engaging with words on the page.
Together, these disciplines of attention have become a genre-transcending volume of invitations to go deeper into one's own noticing. Wood-Solace models meditation through creativity, encouraging the reader-beholder to savor each pairing in contemplative, restorative stillness and celebration.
