Another month of the Slow Living Project, and another set of inspiring images has been collected — this time under the hashtag #slowliving_bloomandharvest. This past month, Melanie and I wanted to focus our slow living on the season’s changes: the harvest in the northern hemisphere and the blooms of spring in the southern hemisphere. Thank you for sharing your moments of beauty, contemplation, stillness, and connection. We were very inspired, and had a hard time choosing a small selection to share with you, so please visit the hashtag to enjoy all that was offered this month.
What I was most inspired by were the surprises in the gallery, those of you who cleverly combined blooms and harvest: reflecting on the dying bloom, harvesting flowers to create blooms in a new context, capturing the bloom of the harvest, and thinking about bloom in a broader sense: the blooming child, the blooming mind. I curated my selections for the month around notions of play, contemplation and exchange between bloom and harvest.
Melanie’s selections can be found over on her blog www.geoffreyandgrace.com.
Thank you to everyone who participated this month, please join us in November as we explore the theme ‘raise’ in the context of slow living. Raise can be played with and interpreted broadly. As a parent ‘raise’ strikes a particular meaning for me, as I try to guide my children through early life. But raise can also mean to grow, to increase, to create, to give voice to, to bring to maturity, to give rise to, to awaken. Whatever it connotes for you, we’re excited to see how you are inspired to capture ‘raise’. Please share your images with the hashtag #slowliving_raise so others can be inspired.
Our Pinterest board ‘Slow Living Moments’ includes all photo selections from the project visit it here.
Thank you to everyone who shares photos and inspires us to live slowly, wholeheartedly, with gratitude. Best wishes and happy new year! xo, Danielle
