Here is my gratitude journal for the past week or so. I have been doing a lot of journaling on the large mandala (with the iris) that I have been working on, so I haven’t been doing quite so much work in my journal. The printed iris photograph on these pages was the inspiration and all of my iris were a gift from my father-in-law. It was such a happy coincidence that this week we also went to one of his favorite places in the world, the New York Botanical Garden. It was magical. There is an exhibit of Dale Chihuly’s glass work and I will be doing a post featuring that later today on my other blog.
