Sometimes it is the simplest of things that brings on a smile. This yellowest of flower reminds me of sunshine.

There are days when all of us can use an extra dose of sunshine. So here’s a helping of sunny wishes, sent your way, available whenever you need a little sunshine to brighten your day.

Smile. And pass it on!

About Bo Mackison

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you. Please subscribe to receive my five part mini email course The Gifts of the Desert. It's my gift to you.
