It's not the physical act of gathering eggs, or making soaps, or working in the garden. Its a lifestyle choice, a slower pace. The individual components that made this complete picture when broken down, are things that take time, consideration, and require patience. No rush and hustle, prodding and deadlines. Just peace and calm and all things I have been striving for, a lifestyle I have been desperately seeking and living despite my location. Today as I reflected on this photo I see the circle is now complete. The location is now finally in place, and all the things that I have been looking forward to that were photographed and hung beside my desk are not just a dream, but soon a very real reality. This photo though no longer relevant in the near future once we move, will always hold a special place and I will hang it in my new home. It is a reminder to never give up on your dreams, but also to live where you are and keep quietly working on that which is important to you, where you are, until the full picture is realized.
Thank you to whomever you are for such a wonderful photo that perfectly captured that which I hold dear and spoke the unspoken for me for so many years until my dream was a reality.
