Day18 - Monochrome  #gentlejanuary2018 with @susannahconway . The Lotus has been my companion the past few days, so I thought it was fitting to feature it today in monochrome form. A candle base on my outside table. . “No Mud, No Lotus” Thick Nhat Hanh . I recently purchased the sweetest little Oracle Deck called Botanical Inspirations. The illustrations are beautiful and the messages perfect. . On Tuesday I picked Sacred Lotus before I had my coaching session with @karengunton if was very fitting. . Enlightenment . Honour all the experiences that have brought you to this place on your path of spiritual growth but let go of the things that no longer serve you. . For me the Lotus represents my heart and the importance of self love. .  I have had to trudge through the mud many times. It is time for my sacred lotus to bloom. Sarah xxx
"The Family of Man has been created in a passionate spirit of devoted love and faith in man. - Edward Steichen . I first fell in love with black and white photography when I was in my teens. As a budding photographer with a Kodak Instamatic camera, a friend gifted me the book, A Family Of Man, a book that changed my view of the world. . The collection of 503 images was originally from an exhibition Edward Steichen presented at the New York Museum of Modern Art in 1955. 273 photographers from 68 countries captured the human experience around the themes of birth, love, joy, war, death. The exhibit was meant to be a manifesto for peace and equality. Steichen described the exhibition as "A mirror of the essential oneness of mankind throughout the world." . At the time I didn’t know any of this. All I knew was the photos of Cartier-Bresson, Ansel Adams, Robert Capa, and all the other photographers, reflected back to me my desire to be a humanist. I believed people everywhere wanted, and deserved, the same things in life; shelter, food, safety, health and love. The prose and poetry of Plato, Thomas Jefferson, Albert Einstein, to name a few, spoke of equality, diversity, nature, and love. I credit this book with introducing me to the power of photography to tell a story, my love of inspirational quotes and poetry, and my renewed faith in the inherent goodness of mankind. . This was in the early 1970’s, a time of racial unrest, the Vietnam War, and inequality for women, issues that are still relevant today. When I researched this book this morning I found out the Family Of Man exhibition is permanently installed at Clervaux Castle in Luxembourg, Edward Steichen’s home country. I’m going to go and see it. . It’s time for me to renew my belief in the inherent goodness of mankind.

17) Feel/I enjoy. I feel relaxed, which is very rare. This time of the year is very busy for me and still working through an injury. I’m shocked I feel this way. Definitely going to enjoy this time. Even went to dinner with my husband tonight and was with family’s for dinner than night before. #savouringjanuary2018 #gentlejanuary2018
Nurture the seeds of your intent and gather your resources because you've got an impending journey to make. Remember the landmarks and locate your guides because the maps are of no use anymore. The new moon portal and Capricorn stellium we are currently experiencing is shaping the legacy each one of us will leave. This planetary pile up in earthy Capricorn is a big deal and a very rare occurance. The conditions are ripe for attaining clarity and fostering the kind of practicality that enables us to accomplish great things. Traditional order and structures are generally favored under these stars but we've got a unique aspect with Uranus in Aries opening a window for lasting & radical change. If you can see a new and better way to improve or expand traditional models allow your imagination to encompass the possibility of these brand new vistas. This is your once in a decade chance to break the mold. Go for it! One way or another, it's not going to be the easiest road (the very best journeys always have at least a dash of calamity, amirite). Please do make certain your destination is a place YOU actually want to go. There is not much time for any of us. Truly. Use yours wisely. . . . .  #capricornnewmoon #newmoon  #moonritual #northstar #makeawish #meetyourmagic #seeds #intentions #feelnew #benew #dothework #earthy #capricornstellium #somuchcapricorn #uranusinaries #saturn #timelord #lastyearatthistime #kingcake #igotthebaby #oneyearago #youronewildlife #lifeisajourney #legacy #whereareyougoing #bigleague #climbeverymountain #gentlejanuary2018 #iwish

So for today, “I enjoy exploring and being open to encountering new experiences”. #adventureawaits #canadaday #explorebc #trusttheprocess #naturelovers

MONOCHROME #gentlejanuary2018 day 18  while the storm rages outside, flights are cancelled, accidents on the road, debris falling everywhere, I call in to work that I will stay safe at home today and be back in tomorrow. Then I open my camera with the monochrome filter and snap a shot of some of my favourite body parts just for a little love. Then It’s time to get dressed, make coffee, and meditate on the day #goodmorning#thursday#feet#monochrome#bw#toes#pedicure#toerings#cutefeet#mistress#footworship#footfetishnation#soles
~i enjoy~ {Day 17} Today’s  photography subject is... I enjoy. I enjoy... giving back. I enjoy contributing. Serving. Helping. Lighting the world, in my own small way. Tonight at “SHE” we donated make up and gently used clothing to a women’s shelter in Seattle. I loved being able to donate Younique make up to help empower women to begin a fresh start this new year. I don’t share for validation. I recently read on someone’s  IG feed, that when we serve, or give back... we should do it quietly. But I disagree. Random acts of kindness is contagious. Giving back inspires others to do the same. Lighting the world... and sharing it... encourages others to do the same. Someone.. encouraged me with their impactful actions. And I hope.... to pass along the same. #gentlejanuary2018 #kindnessmatters #givingbacktothecommunity #lighttheworld #itscontagious #ienjoy #blessingsabound #obsessivelygrateful
MONOCHROME. A me piacciono i colori. Insieme. Sovrapposti, fusi, abbinati audacemente. Preferisco quelli decisi, forti, non sono monocromatica. Proprio no. Mi piacciono quasi tutti i colori. Preferisco però quelli caldi, il rosso, dal bordeaux al ciliegia, che piano piano diventa rosa, mi piace l'arancio col turchese e il viola col porpora. I colori dei fiori, poi, sono la cosa più bella che ci sia. Mi vestirei di fiori.

Summer afternoons... and also the reason they were only running around after eight pm packing their school bags. We're all getting used to the new routines 😳 but I will admit, I do enjoy seeing them play! . . . . #backtoschool #summer #summerinjozi #swimming #routines #ienjoy #gentlejanuary2018 #marciasgentlejanuary2018
