I love this time of year. The world is full of hope and the future holds all possibilities. And I like to contemplate what just happened and where things are going. Guess I'm a goal setter too. Or a dreamer, depending on your point of view. And one thing I'm really excited for the coming year is working on our website. It's been a long time coming and has gone through more than one iteration. And it surely would not be as fun a project as it has been were it not for the photographic brilliance of the lovely Melissa Jane Ferrell, our sometimes Passionflower shop girl, and the creative proprietress of Jane in the Woods Photographie who took some wonderful photos for me of our product like the one below. The Passionflower shopping site would not be nearly as beautiful were it not for her work. I really feel lucky to have her cross my path.
I think she's a brilliant photographer - really able to capture tenderness and subtle emotions. And so I leave you with, what I think is, so far, my favorite photo of hers which she call Baby Timmy.
Just perfect for the New Year.
(Plus I have a think for images of women with their eyes closed = another reason this image speaks to me.)
