I have been toiling, but it’s time for a long exhale
to prepare my heart for Thanksgiving tomorrow.
photography: Elizabeth Messina of Kiss the Groom
I discovered the work of photographer
Elizabeth Messina a few years ago,
and I find her style luminously poetic
and the light she captures nothing
less than transcendent.
I hope you will find peace and tranquility blooming this holiday.
I hope your senses will fill with lovely sights,
sounds, aromatics, and caresses.
I hope there will be love.
I hope the light will find a way in.
I hope if joy is yours, you will share it.
I hope whether it has been a year of questions
or a year of answers, you will reflect upon
its silver linings.
I hope you still find wonder.
I hope you know I honor the time you take
to visit me here and add to the beauty.
Happy Thanksgiving, friends; and
peace to you and yours right where you are.
