Daily Life

continuing the discussion with Jenna and Mr. Pond.

The art we see everyday is my passion. The ability to make each day sacred with beauty is an ability I attempt to cultivate by creating a domestic church, a place of beauty to rest in, to refresh in, and to grow in. A place that can both comfort and challenge.

Daily beauty can be simple and pure. The easy images of loveliness that give us joy,like butterflies, flowers, smiling babies, and sunsets.

They can be very human..

or spiritual. And like all beauty, they raise us up, even the easiest beauty is always whispering, "remember your death." Because all our daily beauty is just a preliminary, and that's one reason I love it: daily beauty only lasts the day.


  1. Love love LOVE the pictures. :) And your last line is great.

  2. Thanks! I tried to comment on your most recent post, but for some reason it didn't work, I'll try again today. Photos are a fun way to make a quick post. :)
