Happy Easter :)
We are wishing everyone a wonderful weekend. Many will be celebrating Easter on Sunday and it will be a different celebration than usual as we are all staying at home to do our part in taking care of our families, neighbors, communities.. and our world as a whole. We hope you enjoy the holiday anew - perhaps with more meaning because of what we are all experiencing together. We personally look forward to cooking, to a quiet day... to just appreciating the moment. We are sharing a picture from a series we put together last year in collaboration with our friend, photographer Krysta Jabczenski and Heather Walker. Heather hides like an Easter egg amongst the blooming Palo Verde tree. It was a beautiful day and we were so excited to take photos amongst these incredible trees that are exploding with color in the Spring.
I keep thinking about the character the experience we are all going through will build and who we will be coming out of it. I am currently reading Martha Graham's autobiography and her opening page makes me think of all of this. She writes,
I am a dancer.
I believe we learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living, the principles are the same. In each it is the performance of a dedicated precise set of acts, physical or intellectual, from which comes shape of achievement, a sense of one's being, a satisfaction of spirit... - Martha Graham
While all our daily practices have been disrupted, the new lives we are leading will contribute to a new direction... and hopefully a new spirit - individually and collectively. We really believe that.
