There was a package in my mail last night which arrived out of the blue. A gift! A Surprise! It arrived from a woman I have never met before, but who discovered me online, and liked what I express. Her name is Melanie G Mason, and she is a photographer and writer from New Zealand. She sent me an exquisite book she has created, called THANK YOU, LIVING IN GRATITUDE.
Every page is a joy. The book brims with brilliant photographs and grateful inspiration. I cannot do the book justice, or the rest of Melanie’s work… or her amazing spirit. I can only urge you to visit her website. You too will marvel, and be so inspired.
The quotation on this page reads, “Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls bloom.” ~Marcel Proust
Melanie has many beautiful images on her website, and somewhere the quotation, “Photography teaches us to see.” ~Berenice Abbott
I’ve been dipping into the book, and then, indeed, seeing the world around me with brighter eyes. I took this photo this morning of the sun upon our Buddha Rock, the goldenrod of this season. Everything feels more radiant; more beautiful. Thank you so much Melanie!
