My being has been telling me to return to publishing Treasure Your Life Now blog post on a regular basis, to establish a new rhythm and flow (see story in “Today’s Photo” below for the connection)

As I’ve been going back over photos and queries in issues over the past 14 plus years, the view of the photo above grabbed my attention. What I wrote in that issue 118 in June 2005 follows:
TODAY’S PHOTO –
Closing in on a portion of an hibiscus.
I planned to give you the full view of the hibiscus that beckoned me to photograph it as I glanced out my dining room window. The next day, when I selected the photo, I started studying it to see what it was that caught my attention.
There was the color and its delicacy and definitely the rhythm and the flow in the shadows, textures and the edges of the petals. I, then closed in on it with the cropping tool and liked the resulting overall image.
A WISH FOR YOU –
Have as light and flowing a week and weekend as this hibiscus section suggests, filled with soft and gentle color…bright colors, also, for those of you who wish them.
AWARENESS AND SELF-REFLECTING QUERIES -
Pay attention to what catches your eyes this next week.
Is there a rhythm and flow to what you are looking at? Is it one that appeals to you?
As I write, the different and many jumpy elements I’ve recently created in my life are cropping up for me.
Why not,” I suggest to myself, “try on creating the rhythm and gentleness of this flower for the next few days?”
Is there a visual in your life, or perhaps an auditory piece, that you can find that you can use as a symbol to match what you would like to be achieving?
If these photos, story and suggestions moved you to take on something new for you, or you have other observations or comments, please leave your comment below this post.
As always, stay open to shifting perspectives, enriching your life.
