my new year's wish




to the many extraordinary people
who share this existence with me
with such love
and with
such joyous
and unconditional
acknowledgement
of the tremendous fortune
we experience
in the privilege
of simply
being here

i wish
the blessings
of love
creativity
and peace

and the fulfillment
that those states bring.

Happy New Year, Steven!! Your blog has been a blessing. Thank you!
Oh, and...amazing photograph! My mom taught me how to look for mandalas in nature. I love pine cones - the lotus flower of the evergreen.
Love. Peace.

thankyou jenny! this is a photograph i took a couple of years ago. i was walking along the street when i saw this pine cone lying in the gutter. so i picked it up, put it in the top of a bottle and took this photograph. i'm really interested in the fibonacci sequence which shows up in all sorts of natural objects and this picture always reminds me of the beautiful sweetspot where design and grace meet. peace and love jenny stevning! steven

"The tremendous fortune we experience in the privilege of simply being here..."
For me this is the crux of the matter, to be mindful of our privilege and rich blessings so that we may give thanksgiving where it is due. Please visit me at some point and see if we are somewhat kindred spirits.
