I walked into the kitchen yesterday morning and immediately turned around and went back to my bedroom to get my camera. Dirty dishes that, the night before, were symbolic of the stress I have let get to me deeply, the perception of being unable to get on top of my life, to feel confident, sufficient, assured, had become beautiful refractors of perfect light.
Such perfect light like this is startling and had to be captured as a reminder that beauty is so often right in front of us. I love this quote by Annie Dillard:
Beauty and grace surround us. The least we can do is try to be there. ––Pilgrim at Tinker Creek
