Zooming in

Sick with a migraine last week, I realized just how comfortable, how pleasing, how nourishing a place our home is, just as it is.

Yes, there are things we’d like to change. There are things we will change.

 But we don’t need to hurry. We don’t need to do it today.

Today everything we have is all that we need, and more than enough.

We have light.

As I wandered around our home with my camera, it was the small details that filled the frame. They always can. It’s a choice that’s always available, the one to look up close, to zoom in on all the little things that shelter us.

Would love to hear all about them.
