Thematic Photography: Grounded
Interesting that this is a daily reading for me today, as we explore the theme of Grounded. As always, I am challenged by the various ways I can interpret the theme. I have been giving thought to people that I consider grounded, and now this idea that we are grounded in our living places.
"Our home life is a large, wondrous, and centering part of our lives, and creating a haven to retreat to means that we have a safe place to collect our thoughts and recuperate from the busy-ness of the outside world. When we make a space that is secure and grounded, we call that type of energy into the rest of our lives. Settling down doesn’t mean shutting ourselves off from the rest of the world; instead it is a way in which we allow ourselves a means to be rooted in a protected and healing place that we can call our own. By developing a space that makes you feel grounded today, you will always have a retreat."
