May you find beauty in the contrasts, in the juxtaposition of opposites.

A blessing, a wish, from my heart to yours.

The awesome artist is Sofia Bonati. This creation is called Ottavia.

How about you?

I love the stark contrast between the gentle shading of the young woman’s face and hand against the concentric black and white lines and the geometric maze detail.

What I find MOST fascinating is how there are no definite strong lines that mark the edges that define where the circles of the background end and the body of the young woman begins… there is this fluid connection with only variations in angle, most times ever so slight, and only in a few places are the changes in line thickness and direction bold and obvious. I love the feeling of flow as well as the reminder of the exponential power of a single drop, rippling out to infinity!

May you find beauty in the contrasts, in the juxtaposition of opposites,

May you contemplate whether they are even opposite at all, but perhaps two sides of the same coin…

May you trust the process, the unfolding of life,
May you question the edges that define and separate….

May you celebrate the magical ability of simple sincere random acts of kindness to ripple and touch hearts and souls through to the edges of eternity.

May you courageously connect to your aliveness,

May you acknowledge the value of small individual actions to collectively create something so majestically more than the sum of their parts!

May you befriend the unfathomable…

So may it be.
Huge love always.
❤️ 🙏 🎁

Blessing backstory:⁠
A while ago I decided to find uplifting images, ones that made me smile and lifted my spirit. And to send them together with a blessing, a personal wish, to my immediate family. Over time it’s become a ‘daily-ish’ morning practice via WhatsApp to a slowly growing recipient list. Recently I’ve started to share these blessings and images on social media too, with a prayer that they brighten the world of those who receive them.

Would you like to receive these too?
