Good Morning.

I am feeling inspired by this book right now.  I think everyone should own a copy.

It's a stunning and sweet picture book made from the most wonderful story.  It is a collection of 236 images, taken by two women, living 3191 miles apart, always before noon.  They took a moment to document the simple, yet beautiful, everyday things around them that morning.  The similarities of the photographs are unreal.     

It makes me want to get up 20 minutes earlier and enjoy the beauty of the coming day.  It reminds me that I need to stop and enjoy life a little more instead of wishing the working day away.  Like Allison Arieff from the New York Times said about this book, "We're living in difficult times and it seems it's exactly these tiny details and fleeting moments that can offer us the most solace and even joy."

This book makes me think of my cosmic twin, a kindred spirit, and what she might be doing this morning. 

Have a wonderful day today.  And DO stop to see the beauty in it.

  1. What a lovely and inspiring post. I will think of it tomorrow morning at 5:30, when I have the option of getting up or sleeping 2 more hours. I always feel better when I get up!
