Mindfulness Challenge Week 15: Awareness

Art Everywhere

There is potential for art in so many places.

In the winter months (and in Northern New Brunswick, it still looks very winter-y outside my window!), I find this most challenging.  Gardens and beaches and backyards are my go-to for photography.  While there are plenty of beautiful possibilities in the snow, I much prefer the opportunities brought by warmer weather.

Indoor photography is a great place to practice awareness.  It is a challenge to notice the tiny details of daily life, to appreciate the the normally overlooked compositions in the home.

This silver paperclip stood out from the rest, catching a glint of light coming through the window.

Art is everywhere.

A Not-So-Much Dog-Love Blog

I’ve started another blog…

I’m not a dog person.  At all.  But I live with dogs because my family loves them.

In order to vent some of my frustrations with these hairy little attention-seekers, I’ve begun writing about them.  You can find my new blog here:  In the Dog House.

This blog, about happy little details in my life, will continue.

Thanks for following. 🙂

For This

Draw-me-a-Heart

I am grateful for this. For having a blog again and waking each morning to writing.

It is helping me to notice the small moments that make me happy. It is something to look forward to. It is also a way to use some of the thousands of photos I have on my hard drive!

But besides that, the writing itself is a gift. To rearrange words, express thoughts, and write a few sentences to share with the world: For this, I am thankful.
