Kat, over at Kat Eye Studio, hosts a photography practice encouraging people to review their photographs for the month and choose the one that gives the "strongest connection to your heart and soul." This month for me was pretty easy. I took this instagram photo with hydrangea flowers I cut from our side yard and eggs gathered in my egg basket. I call it "Gifts from the garden." It represents the connection I feel right now to my home. . . . to my garden and hens, to my kitchen and family and antique sideboard. The photograph also reflects the gratitude practice I engaged in with Bernice this past month. I am feeling very much at peace with my life right now, especially the simpler aspects of it. By meditating, through art, on gratitude, I realize that flowers and eggs and family are all I really need to be happy.
