One of the best cures for discontent is gratitude. Nothing like reminding myself of something I am grateful for to snap me out of the whiny "if onlys."
A long time ago, I came across this photographic gratitude project, somewhere. (Probably via one of Aby's courses.) I've wanted to do it for some time: now is it.
It seems the perfect vehicle to help me refocus my creativity and attention from house related things to other related things: and give myself a much needed little attitude boost, too.
The first "subject" on the list of things to photograph is my favourite food. I always freeze when I hear the word "favourite. I agonize like a mother over her children, they're all my favourites! So, I thought about a favourite I had on hand just this minute.
And here it is:
It had a little sticker on it, announcing it as a Red Hat. I googled it. It's more local than I ever imagined a tomato, in Alberta, in May, could ever be.
I am grateful for greenhouses, sunshine, and fresh tomatoes in May.
