The older I get the more I like order in my life.
The clothes in my closet are grouped according to what they are. I eat the exact same breakfast every morning. When I make my bed the pillows are always arranged the same way. I say the same series of prayers daily. I write this blog every week.
And I post an Instagram every single day.
What started out as an exercise that forced me to be more aware of the world around me and the art that’s always present in it, has become so much more than that. Six years after I posted my first Instagram on June 11, 2011 the process is ingrained and second nature to who I am. It has become part of the order of my life.
Today I share with you some of my favorite images from among the 2300+ photos I’ve posted, grouped, of course, in a sort of order.

Pink ones in particular:

I’m not guessing at how much longer this will go on but as long as the technology still exists and my eyes are still working, I believe this habit, this particular method of creating order in my life, will continue.
You have my appreciation for looking today.
