  2. Oh my goodness, Amy! Now it’s my turn to tear up! What a beautiful picture too! You know I love those sexy reds! Plus new sunbeam effect? Is that new? I don’t remember seeing it before in your photography.

    1. Wow. Thank YOU, Cee. I remembered what you told me about reds and I applied that knowledge here. I also had glare so I added a little texture and then vinegrette with the circle of light to bring the eye to the center …. all to embrace togetherness. This was shot extremely close. I’m getting better at it. (smile) Love, Amy


    1. OH, Richard. *tears* I really and I mean really worked with this image to portray exactly what the words say. More went into the making of this then meets the eye. It’s subtle, or at least most of it is. Bless you for your kindness to me on this day! (((HUGS))) Amy


    1. Celia, so much healing has been happening lately and it is directly with the women mentioned on this post. And the words in these comments put me in tears, they being of High Heart themselves. You as well are a Bright Light which I hope you do know. Bless you for your kindness and Love in my Life, my friend. You mean so much to me. (((HUGS))) Amy


  3. It can come as no surprise to you that we have been on synchronous wavelengths again—or still—Amy. I’ve spent hours today working on a series of posts, an essay for a book, and a couple of letters, every one of them in one way or another on the theme of community, family, love, and mutual support. Every one of them, of course, influenced in no small part by our recent conversations that brought this eternal internal theme to the surface so poignantly and beautifully.

    Every one of them, in fact, being small imitations of your sweet imagery here. The incurved petals of the chrysanthemum all curled around to protect and reaching in in a great sweep of waves to support the small but essential center and in doing so, giving it strength and brilliance. The delicately balanced words that remind us how interdependent we are, and how uplifted by each other’s goodwill and encouragement.

    It is clear from this, as from so many of your comment-conversations with your friends and community here over time, that you are as much a blessing as blessed, as much a gift as gifted, and I thank you for that.

    With love and admiration!

    1. I in return thank you, Kathryn. Your words of themselves are so beautifully written, as you with such expertise paint pictures with your words. What you can do with the English language leaves me in utter amazement every time we correspond with the other. Yes, this theme has been prevalent, with many around me opening their Hearts wider and sharing deep scars within themselves, thereby validating and healing all in one. The more we all reach out to each other, the more TRUST is gained, and the more confident we become to show ourselves to a greater extent. This is the Gift that WP has given to me. I have found kindred souls here, and in so doing, I have grown and basked in the Love and Support I have been shown. I clearly would not be who I am today if I had not made that huge decision to open Petals. How far I have come since that day, and in looking back, I did not ever expect to see me where I am this day.
      I am overjoyed you came here to read this post, for this is my way of saying and showing to you, how much our conversations of late have meant to me. I am so happy that this bubble of friendship is expanding and that you too are creating with it. When you publish your book, do let me know, for I will purchase it, without a doubt! I do LOVE books!
      Much Love and admiration from me, Amy

    1. Oh, Maverick! Thank YOU! I spent a lot of time on this one to bring to the center of the image, the viewer’s eye and also to represent togetherness. (((HUGS))) Amy


      1. Michelle, I am close to balling my eyes out. So many of late have been saying what you are, and to hear these words almost with every comment I open lately just blows me away!! Oh, my friend, to be Loved as I am Loved is such a Gift, one I did not think would ever happen for me. I Love you so much!!! (((HUGS))) Amy

      3. I’m doing it now. My INTENTION and my attitude, is bringing it to me, Michelle. I am determined that all the ghosts from my past are forever annihilated. Bit by bit, I am taking ME back! Have a glorious weekend, my friend. Enjoy your days off from work! (((HUGS))) Amy
