Weekly Photo Challenge: Today

This week’s challenge asked us to pick up our cameras, look around, and shoot a photo TODAY. What a good challenge — to observe our surroundings, to find beauty in the everyday. Very zen.

These smooth stones are stacked in a window where they catch the afternoon light. Zen Buddhists say that the art form of stacked stones brings us back to mindfulness. I think that was the point of this week’s photo challenge as well.

What in your home brings you back to mindfulness?
