Tomatoes, Sunshine and Living For The Moment

I woke up this morning thinking about what else, money and bills.  I guess we all are doing that to some extent.  Then after a good hour of journaling and thinking about life mixed in with a few prayers, I come back to the fact that life is about living for this day.  That our purpose in life is here in this moment right now!  I realize that very often I spend too much time in the future or past.  Life is so full of joy when we live for the present moments.  I think there are hundreds of small joys that I can pass by when I am not living for the day.  When I am practicing my art no matter what it is I am completely immersed in the moment and that is so heavenly.  This photo is a still life I shot while visiting a living history program in Georgia.  The clouds  and blue sky reflected in the windows along with the tomatoes ripening are just one of the hundreds of joys we can see every day.  Call me simple but I love moments like these! I wonder if the person who put the tomatoes on the old farm table  knew what joy they would bring to this photographer who was enjoying the moment!  Have a great day!



I am an interior designer with over 27 years of experience in both residential and commercial design. I love the "do it yourself" person because I am a do it yourself person and I very much identify with making old new again. I believe that our spirits are rejuvinated and inspired when we relect who we are and what we believe in and are not afraid to face the harder parts of our lives. This blog will be dedicated to that purpose. I am also a survivor of domestic violence. I have an insatiable desire to grow and learn about myself in both spiritual and emotional ways. I love being a guest speaker for events in self-growth with the idea of hopefully inspiring others that past traumas can be over come and life can be terrific or at the very least good!
