Finding Your Green Space

21 days of 26 days of kindness
Step into the design world and imagery is everything. Critical in defining the vision, imagery is collectively understood. A picture defines the place, the purpose. There aren’t words to explain it but we get it. We live by what we see. 

How people perceive imagery and visuals was stated best by the Walt Disney Company. “Of all of our inventions for mass communication, pictures still speak the most universally understood language.” With it being Monday plus the 21st day of 26 days of kindness, there’s an exercise in honor of Rachel D’Avino. Rachel’s passion was working as a behavioral therapist and making children's lives easier. She enjoyed baking cakes, karate, photography and she loved all types of animals.

In honor of Rachel, it’s her love of photography I chose to touch upon today. During these dreary garden months, we subconsciously miss the lush, deep tones of green. We long for vibrant spring and summer colors but the lush green backdrop sets the entire scene. So here’s the Monday morning activity - envision your favorite spring and summer exterior spaces or a favorite park or arboretum you visit. No need to be elaborate. Take your own photos or find the ones that speak to you. As Disney reminds us ‘pictures still speak the most universally understood language.” 

And don’t forget the small act of kindness. Maybe share your photos with a friend or someone you haven’t seen for a bit. Or better yet, it’s a great night to bake a cake. Or do a little something extra for your pet or a sheltered animal. As always, the links for the FB and event page to help the families of Newtown, CT while this community approaches a very difficult day.
