Weekly Photo Challenge: Ephemeral

Trish, Mosaic Artist

Trish, Mosaic Artist

 It’s not the person who is posing for the picture in the bright light of the colorful stained glass window that caught my eye, nor the multitude of mosaics that lined the artist’s walls. No, it was the photographer who was taking a woman’s photo in the most perfect light that caught my eye as I turned to go.

Daily Gratitude: the bright smile of our waitress; tulips peeking their heads out of the ground; a headache dissipating

Daily Gratitude: yoga exercises, reading, blue skies

Quote of the Day: Married to a soul and a mind, the body provides us with carnal pleasures and serves to reflect our overall spiritual and mental condition like a polished mirror…. To the extent that we can discover our own, unique balance, we are whole… and once whole, we can truly dance like the free spirits we are.          ~Garri Garripoli
