Paying Attention & A Winter Bouquet
Lately, I'm working on paying more attention to the small voice within. After meditating this morning, the voice said "let's create a winter bouquet". Though I'd often incorporated grasses in my bouquets, I'd never fully embraced the idea of a bouquet made out of naturally dried plants, until I was inspired by a Bittersweet blog. It's a rather gray & drizzly day here, but I just dressed appropriately and wandered a bit to see what I could find on my homestead. Besides the various plants, I found some wonderful moss & lichen-covered sticks, acorns & pinecones. It takes a different sort of vision to find the subtle beauty in a fall landscape. I think I'll cultivate it.
