Joy 30/82: My Camera

Our mosaic class visited a tile artist's house today and it almost made me dizzy.  Every place you looked was a work of art ... an exuberance of color, line and form.  The woman who opened her home to us lives her art and reminds me of this quote from David Whyte:
What you can plan
is too small
for you to live.

What you can live
will make plans
for the vitality
hidden in your sleep.

David Whyte, House of Belonging
Engulfed by color and form, I took over 70 photos in about an hour and could have taken three times as many except there were so many people walking around, I couldn't get clear shots.  Several years ago I started carrying a small but high-quality point-and-shoot camera with me everywhere I go.  On days like today, it gives me great joy to be able to easily capture the beauty and inspiration that comes my way.

About the image:  Shower ... just one example of her tile work throughout her house.
