Morning gratitude

Several years ago I started occasionally posting photos on various social media sites — Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest — using the heading “Morning Gratitude.” Usually a flower, sometimes a cloud formation, the shots are typically taken during my morning walk with Strudel, the family dog.

This act has become a habit, both an opportunity to cultivate the art of photography and develop a discipline to see and appreciate the world within which I move.

I recommend it as an intentional practice to step outside the oblivion of daily life and witness the subtle wonder of nature.
