Take an afternoon off in the middle of the week
and have tea.
"Suddenly I realize That if I stepped out of my body I would break Into blossom." ~James Wright
In the middle of winter we need blossoms.
Do you pick them up when walking through the market? I do quite often, because I need them in the dark days.
I found this comment on Instagram @valentiphotothis week and just loved
the permission to photograph beauty in flowers.
"So, never think your work doesn't "count" because you're photographing flowers, cuddly dogs, loved ones smiling, and glorious vistas. Where would we be without those things? Pretty is medicine. You're doing important work. You're reminding the world that joy is sacred, that delight is inherently valuable, that peace is at hand. I can't think of anything more powerful or worthwhile." ~Instagram
JOY is sacred, indeed!
Each of these pictures came from my garden
last June! Isn't it great we have this
to look forward to this coming June?
I love it!!!
Many things bring great delight to me: tea, gardens, flowers, outdoors, food, and friends that cross my path. These all make my heart sing with small chuckles, giggles, laughter, and tears. It is my desire to seek beauty all around me, have the heart of a wanderer, a storyteller.
