Peace on Mother's Day

Peace on Mother's Day
Peace on Mother's Day,
originally uploaded by ellengwallace.

Flowers from the garden in a vase made by a good friend, a painting from Ghana, purchased when my 10 year old son visited there with us, and in the corner, a wonderful turtle-fish painting by my son at age 16, a relaxing glass of wine and - this you can't see - cherished fingerprints from my daughter on the window nearby. A basket of pleasure, plenitude, warmth and love. I am blessed and I hope that this message of good cheer goes some way towards sharing this bounty with you, no matter who you are (and not just mothers) for that is how we reproduce the best in our world.

Is there a window in your roof or is that some other light source illuminating the Tulips for a bountiful Mother's Day?

It's a simple ceiling spot over the table. I'd been staring at the flowers for a while when I suddenly realized how wonderful the light was and leaped up to get my camera. Quite accidentally lit like this.
