Inspired again and again by the wonderful photo-art-collaboration “3191 miles apart” (see older post), sometimes during a quiet moment (making sure to have some each day!) I see the Beauty of simple things right where I live and make sure to get the camera out.
Ever since I started taking photos of those “simple”, every day life treasures, it seems my thankfulness of how and where I live has come to a new level, accompanies me through the day and just..makes me happy.
The pebbles in the photo above all but one came home with me from Eftalou, Greece. The one on the left which looks a bit like an arch was a gift from Max Bailly, an Artist and my art teacher for one week. He collected pebbles for everyone in the group for our last day for our final meditation round.
Here are a few more photo still-lifes of the past few days:
The cherry tree in front of the Loggia window. Meanwhile blooming fully and shining a bright light in the morning, when I have my first cup of coffee at about 6:15
And my cosy dutch favourite cup – with greek mint-verbena tea, I can almost smell it through the photo …
There is a beautiful Poem by Mary Oliver which matches the mood of this post.
