Volume 7 - Issue 16

In today's Picture to Ponder, I am simply inviting you to take some time and simply breathe in the beauty of the images below.

lavender lysianthus buds

Today's Photos -
Purple lysianthus. I was so thrilled with the pink lysianthus featured last month - Pink Lysianthus - that when they died off I purchased a different bunch. These flowers last for two to three weeks in my home and offer me tremendous pleasure.

This grouping was particularly fascinating to me because of the fact that one stalk might have three buds, each a slight variation in color. A few of the very light ones turned into the darker purple.

An assortment is featured above for your pleasure.

Self-Reflecting Queries -
These flowers seem to invite looking at the subtleties and gentle areas in your life. The fourth one down feels silky to me.

What are the textures of your life? Where are they smooth? And, when there are rough patches how do THEY feel?

Note - As I reviewed this issue in my own email box, before sending it, I realized I made assumptions throughout. Mainly were those that you, too would find the images quiet and beautiful.

Underneath this was the assumption that you, too, would enjoy the colors and respond similarly to the flowers.   It did finally occur to me, before sending this out, that, in fact, none of the above might fit for you.

Thus, I invite you to look at your life and check. Are there areas where your actions are based on the assumption that others with whom you are interacting are on the "same page?" If that's a possibility, I invite you to "play" with this and check it out.

As always, have fun, and please share on the blog what comes up for you.
