Here’s a quote from the Dali Lama that captured my attention this AM…

True peace with ourselves and with the world around us can only be achieved through the development of mental peace.

It caught my attention because as I was putting together my morning meal I was suddenly overwhelmed at how fortunate I am.

Having a spouse and partner that complements and completes me.

To be a photographer pursing the career that keeps me challenged.

To live in a land where I can make choices to speak the way I wish.

To have a forum like this in which to share ideas about photography and life.

To be able to have a meal like this…

I’m not normally one to take pictures of my food and share it on social media… (OK maybe sometimes) But this was the spark that got me thinking about how truly fortunate I am and have been throughout my life. I think a large part of my good fortune comes from recognizing and noting gratitude on a regular basis.

What are you grateful for???
