Take this moment to pause and revel in the beauty of haiku poems shared in response to a "Flowers for Mom" image. Seek the beauty that abounds and remember that the greatest gift you can give to others this holiday season is your presence.


Endeavor to thoughtfully care for another living being. By so doing, you will be led to earnestly consider issues facing the world around you. Join nature photographer, Elmore DeMott, on her camera journey to see her art, read her words, and hear her speak.

All I Really Need to Know I Learned Through Flowers

There is much to say, but for this "Camera Journey" message, I am going to let the images speak.  My inspiration comes from flowers and "All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten" by Robert Fulghum.
