This small study of a water lily floating in a Japanese garden koi pond invokes tranquility. I chose to focus on this as a restful departure from my darker subjects.
Everyone has heard the clichéd advice to “stop and smell the roses,” and this isn’t unlike that. There should be times in life to stop and relax. Making this ritual a daily practice is a healthy choice. It allows you to recharge, regroup, and then move ahead.
My work, my life, the world, spins from Yin to Yang in a balancing act. How lovely it is to rest. How lively it is to not!
