White Beard Golden River Reflections

I’ve been an artist/designer and avid nature lover for a long as I can remember. I grew up in Narrowsburg in the 50’s and 60’s and returned to the area in 2013 where I quickly became entranced by the ever-changing views of the Delaware River. My studio has an expansive view of the Narrowsburg Bridge across The Big Eddy* and I’ve been photographing and documenting this ever-changing landscape for six years with a focus on the rock formations and their reflections.

The impressive rocks above and deep below the river surface are natural palisades that not only provide the structure that guides the flow of the river, they also protect an ancient energy portal that I perceive as a multi-dimensional stargate. The portal aligns with specific energy patterns, usually moving in spiral vortex patterns that are momentarily visible during aligned periods of the dance among the sun, wind and clouds. These seem to be fleeting moments, but I sense they are energetically aligned to allow the River Totem Guardians to present themselves in force during the opening and closing of the portal gates. This is a protected gateway for multi-dimensional travelers. I imagine that the presence of Rock Guardians has always been a necessity.

The Shifting Totems collection will soon be available online or by contacting me HERE.

The Shifting Rock Totem collection will continue to grow due to the ever-changing and revealing river totems
that are continuously revealing their beauty and power through Debra.
