Awakening and unfolding
I feel like today is the first day of the rest of my life. Like the lotus blossom unfolding its petals to a higher connection in life, so too do I feel that way. Its tendrils linked to the earthy muck below it, yet knowing there is so much more out there to explore and aspire to. I suppose that is why the lotus blossom appeals to me so much. I took the top picture that accompanies Marlotus Muses at Garfield Park Conservatory last summer. I was in a sketching class, and chose this flower as my companion for much of the day. I love to take photos that call to me on a deeper level. I also feel that we are all one in this life, so enjoy giving human form and feelings to everything around me, which comes through in my writings.
