I'm sitting here very very (too) early in the morning. Looking through December's photos this is the one that jumped out at me along with the word ritual. What can I say? It's lucky this is about the connection rather than the quality of the photo!
As I sit here at this early hour, today feels like it will be a good day. I am already ahead of the game. I am luxuriating in the silence of my house - surrounded by loved ones yet with time to myself. To write, to think, to make my plans, to drink my coffee.
This photo was taken on my phone for my 12.12.12 time capsule project capturing an ordinary day. That was a good day too. Maybe there's something to this ritual thing.
