Something very special happens within when we open up to the unconditional acceptance of another being. There is a reciprocity. By both giving and receiving, we nurture within ourselves love, gratitude, and a softening of the heart.

Careful, Watch Your Step

Cropped two different ways, the first version of this photo is my belated response to The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Careful.  That’s my mom and her sister walking carefully across a Starbucks rain-wet floor.  My aunt is placing her feet mindfully while my mother has a firm grip on her walker.

The second photo crop is my response to Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge: Week #5 Leading Lines. There are so many lines, but the ones that get my attention and send my eye to the back of the room are: the line between the tile that begins in the lower right-hand corner, the line created by the wall over the window that begins in the upper right-hand corner, the “line” created by the row of menu signs beginning in the upper left-hand corner, and the crooked line of white tile that doesn’t quite come from the lower left-hand corner.

So many lines leading your eye to the lit shelf of products on the back wall and the place where the coffee line begins. I think Starbucks knows how to direct the flow of latte lapping consumers!
