Becoming Real

According to the Velveteen Rabbit, “Real isn’t how you are made…  it’s a thing that happens to you.”  Perhaps a photographer’s project becomes real when she puts down the camera and agrees to be interviewed on the other side of the lens.  I hereby present “Flowers for Mom” in a humbling piece created by the talented Ronny Taylor at Troy University.  

Clearly, this Camera Journey adventure has bloomed well beyond me.  Now go forth and seek beauty in your days.  It’s always there if you simply pause and look.  If you are inspired to add to a garden celebrating mothers, you can make a special Mother’s Day tribute in honor or memory of a loved one.  Pick your flower by April 20th and let it bloom for years to come in the Jackson Hospital Healing Art Collection.

If you have not already joined the Facebook Flowers for Mom group that I just created, please do so you can celebrate nature as we all share flower photos, help identify flowers others find, and more.

“Once you are real you cannot become unreal again.  It lasts for always.”
