grow in peace

June 23, 2010

If you spend any length of time, on any given day, paying attention to media and societal influences, it does not take long for a sensitive spirit to despair: corruption in the government, damage to the environment, poverty in the world, brokenness in relationships . . . it is all too much to bear.  Alone.  Which is why, I think, I have been so awed by the wealth of decency in my community of friends and family.  What a great blessing it is to have daily interactions with people who defy the norms of life as we know it.

And so tonight I warned Ruby that, her being who she was, I would probably end up inspired to photograph her at some point over the course of the evening.  Here she is, caring for her lovely orchid and sporting a fittingly-symbolic t-shirt :-)
