Chair, Occupied by Flowers

Chair, Occupied by Flowers Β© 2012 Bo Mackison

Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy. ~Β  Thich Nhat Hanh

I saw this lovely chair in front of a shop window while walking on Main Street in Galena, Illinois. It’s not every day I find a chair already taken — by a swag of fragrant lavender!

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.


  1. Lavender looks so good together with vintage furniture’s and stuff.

  2. Very nice composition. I like the lines, shapes, textures and colors.

  3. Very inviting – that chair calls to me.

  4. What a wonderful find/capture! Beautiful composition. πŸ™‚

  5. Just spotted this lovely chair pre-occupied. I love the image. I also love the words. Have only recently become aware of the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh. Mindfulness.

      Don’t you just love a chair that is pre–occupied by a swag of lavender? And yes, mindfulness, now there’s a concept that takes a lot of mind to grasp. At least for me! πŸ™‚
