And then there are the collectors of intangible things.
Felt and experienced things.
things that tickle the senses
acts of kindness
glimpses of things memories
I am a collector of things. We are all collectors of something, anything and everything.
Mother Nature is a collector.
I admire and respect her ability as a collector. She shares her collections openly and without shame. She doesn't pause to think twice about how or where her collections are displayed. She just collects. I breathe in the beauty of her collections. She creates and designs with them.
Things that captivate my attention.
Things that activate my senses.
Things that trigger my imagination.
Things that make me smile.
Things that dig deep into my soul. Things that make beautiful art. Things that are cause for pause and reflection.
I love color! It creates a mood. It provides ingredients for me to play with form and texture. It is music to my soul.
But there is something magical about the essence of a black and white photo that grabs ahold of me. I experience a sense of calm and serenity and something powerful behind these simple shades and hues.
A gentle reminder that even the simple things can make a bold statement and have a dramatic impact.
