If I have somewhere to be in the morning, I stick to a pretty fixed routine. I don't usually stop to smell the proverbial flowers. But this morning, I couldn't help myself. I'm learning that there is art in the noticing, and that it's worth taking the time to document the little things that make me smile. When the creative spirit moves you to act, be open to the moment. Honor it with whatever form of expression seems right. I photographed these flowers from every angle until I captured the surprising shade of blue that first caught my eye. The journal entry flowed easily from there. Before I even stepped foot outside my door, I was feeling creative and fulfilled. What an amazing way to begin the day!
