The day lilies and black-eyed susans are blooming in my back yard -- the day lilies with their brazen trumpets and glowing centers, the black-eyed susans timidly opening. Somehow it's easy to anthropomorphize these images -- one looks like a choir gathered near the microphone, others are hiding their faces, some warm themselves at the fire, and one looks like it's breathing fire!
My approach to contemplative photography --
Tell about it."

Tesserae: small cube-shaped tiles of ceramic, glass or precious stone used to make a mosaic, or in this case, brief essays on some element of lectio divina with Luke 10:38-42.
