Shine the Divine:

Creativity IS a Spiritual Practice

When we see through our hearts, we recognize that every single one of us is infused with creativity. Divine Sparks are embedded in everyone and everything. It's up to us to be courageous, to look and listen deeply, to find the sparks, gather and release them back into the universe, transformed into something new. Join me as we wake up to the sacred-ordinary blessings waiting to greet us each and every day.

I Heart Macro Week 5

no need to be shy

Welcome to our fifth week of I Heart Macro

"Pure awareness transcends thinking... It allows you to look at the world once again with open eyes. And when you do so, a sense of wonder and quiet contentment begins to reappear in your life."~Mark Williams and Danny Pennman, from Mindfulness An Eight-Week Plan For Finding Peace In A Frantic World

It is time for YOU to share the love up-close with YOUR 
I Heart Macro offerings!

Enjoy slowing down with your camera, paying full attention, observing beauty and curiosities many people pass right by. Your generosity of spirit and keen eyes may open the door to miniscule miracles and mirth others would not have access to otherwise. Feel free to include poetry, prose and thoughts your macro photo or series inspire(s) in you. Writing is completely optional for participation. Straight out of the camera (SOC), edited, color, black and white; anything goes as long as you bring the viewer near to whatever it is that attracted your heart and woke up delight.

Please link back to my blog either using the button provided or by linking the words "I Heart Macro" back to my blog with this link: By sharing the link, visitors to your blog will learn about this meme and have a chance to participate as well if they so choose. S  p  r  e  a  d  the  LOVE. Thanks:-)

If I don’t visit you this week, please forgive me and know that I will check in when I return from teaching next Friday, just in time for you (and me) to have new photos ready for I Heart Macro!

  1. Sweet how you crossed some petals on the daisy. The last photo is awesome.

  2. Hi! Beautiful captures. "Peek-a-boo daisy" is very interesting. I thought it symbolized a cross at first. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Lovely macro's Laura! Daisies are always a flower that makes me happy. I have added my entry also.

    Would you be willing to share two or three of your favorite flower photos on our home page in our Guest Friend spot? If you are interested you can send them to me at, and if you could please put ‘TODAY’S FLOWERS’ in the subject line, this would prevent it from dropping into my spam folder. As friends send me their photos I add them to a list in the order received, and let them know when they will be shown.

    Thank you for considering this and absolutely no pressure, we are just very grateful that you share your flowers with us whenever you can.

    Wishing you a happy weekend,
    Today’s Flowers
