Taking a photography class online that is about still life photos
and embracing stillness into our lives, this photo was taken.
The roses shared here were already about a week old
sitting in a broken pitcher.
Somehow the brokenness and on the edge of death spoke to me.
This week we were encouraged to think how we find stillness.
As I sat in the tire shop waiting to have my tires rotated this week,
I wrote in my journal.
Isn't it amazing how sometimes your pen takes you to a different
place than you expect?
What I found for me is that even if my home is empty of others
where I find stillness is outdoors, walking alone with my camera,
taking photos of nature. There I find stillness and it makes my heart sing.
I realized as a child I was never indoors, but growing up in California
this was possible.
When my mother would ask me to do cleaning indoors I would
barter with her to do yard work.
Laughing because I never learned to cook and clean,
but I could certain wield the pruning shears.
Heading outdoors to find my stillness.
Think about it, where do you find stillness?
Happy weekend, dear friends!
I hope you find stillness in your weekend.
