In reflection of 2015, I created this collage of the last 12 months in 142 pictures..... what was reflected back to me was joyfully authentic living in alignment with what I believe is important.
Communion with Nature
Communication with Spirit
Cherish Friends & Family
These four pillars of my life were reflected back to me again and again as I went through the thousands of pictures from 2015, each month I attempted to choose my most meaningful imagery... please IN-joy and share with anyone who might be inspired!
