Holiday Warmth and Light from Wakodahatchee Wetlands Reeds in Picture to Ponder – vol 5 – 47

by Sheila Finkelstein on December 22, 2009

With this issue of Picture to Ponder, I wish Happy Holidays to those who still have celebrations up coming.

I would expect you, like I, have a long to-do list and may also be inundated with the wide range of emails offering holiday and year-end specials. I am thus being VERY BRIEF.

Yesterday I was working on the bonus gift I’m preparing for Allison Maslin’s BLAST OFF book launch in January. It’s a REFLECTIONS PDF slide show with Queries from Picture to Ponder.

One photo I’ve included is below, that of reeds reflecting sunlight in Wakodahatchee Wetlands. It popped out at me when I was selecting photos for the bonus and again today.

To me, in addition to the light, it’s also exuding warmth. So, I offer it to you now, wishing you light and warmth, wherever you are, during this season.

Should it be a challenging time for you, I invite you to pause, close your eyes and do some deep breathing.

Self Reflecting Queries

Where in your life is there light and warmth? Who are the people past and present who have contributed that to you? Is there a way for you to express your gratitude?

Do remember to acknowledge yourself. In the gratitude there is light.

What a great book – – and a beautiful presentation. I’m ordering it for myself, taking advantage of the $10 off Holiday Special and getting it in hard cover.

Thank you so much for thinking of me and for your ongoing participation here.

Happy holidays to you also and a wonderful New Year.
