Who could use more gratitude in life? Maybe all of us. The celebrators. The downtrodden. The fearful. The complacent. Ones looking for light in our hearts. Ones where darkness makes appearances too. Join us in trying to see gratitude in new ways with this set of 36 cards made to help transform thoughts into action by helping us embody complex emotions connected to gratitude. Pick a card at random to receive a special message from the natural world.
Here is our pick of the day:
27 delphinium (infinite possibility): Try seeing and being grateful for all the possibilities that can emerge from living with life’s uncertainties.
The story behind the drawing: This drawing was inspired by watching an open rehearsal of the New Century Chamber Orchestra in 2015. In my studio after the performance, the word devotion kept coming up for me when I thought of the musicians in the orchestra and the composers of the music, and then I came across a delphinium and found a reference connecting the flower to the concept of infinite possibility. It made me realize that what I love so much about great artists is that by being so devoted to their work (even in the face of so much uncertainty and oftentimes turmoil too) they end up expanding possibilities for the rest of us.
