Turn this picture into an Emotional Fitness Exercise.  As you look at it : Breathe in, focus, hold, focus some more, think about what matters, breathe out, say “Ahhhhh” and “Thank You.” 


It snowed yesterday, and the days are now growing shorter at a gallop.  That means winter is on it’s way.  What I love about the winter solestice is that the days grow longer and that means spring is on its way.  So to start combating the winter doldrums, I am going to post Rocks and Flowers.  These are the Irises at Civic Green Park.  Beautiful.

A new Be With Beauty picture is posted every week  day.  May post some on weekends, but make no promises as  I am trying to keep to a few priorities that are a bit higher on my list of must finish before I hit the bottom of this ride downhill.

I take many of the pictures.  Revisiting my memory book strengthens me.  I also want others to become Be With Beauty Photographers.  Any one interested in sharing their pictures should contact EFTI at [email protected]  Pictures you want posted can be sent to that address in  jpg or gif format.  Given permission I can also harvest pictures from your Facebook, Picasa, or Kodax accounts.  If you give me that n or send me a picture, you should  include  a note stating how you want to be recognized.

Not all pictures will be accepted.  Nature pictures, Pictures reflecting the Weekly Photo Challenge Topic are most acceptable, but also looking for Uncommon Beauty Pictures.

Thich Nan Hahn’s tells us “The rose is in the garbage, the garbage is in the rose.”  As the link shows he was thinking about our tendency to think in dualities–a habit that is very limiting and part of the human tendency to make things simple or worse to divide people into categories.  The purpose of my Be With Beauty Exercise is to have you exercise the ability to find  beauty in uncommon places.   Beauty soothes.
