Her prompt was to write about self care or self love… for me this fits perfectly with my Friday Foto Feature – photography is one way that I reconnect with myself.  It is an art that I practice purely for the pleasure it brings me and, for the most part, I am able to loosen both my perfectionistic reins and my people pleasing tethers and simply shoot what *I* like.

So I present to you my pictures of a rose… I was fascinated with the colours and took many many photos.  During my little photo shoot, I became absorbed in the moment, moving gently into “flow”.  The whole process left me feeling calm and mindfully accepting of the tenuous nature of my peace.
