I thought I'd create a slideshow of beautiful student images from past Meditations on Gratitude courses. If you need a little pick-me-up, this might be just the thing. This is just a sampling of the many wonderful images students have made (I wish I could share them all!). 

I love teaching this e-course. Every day, the online classroom is bursting with vibrant student images and stories. Sometimes I get happy tears in my eyes looking at all the heartfelt images students post in the course. If I'm feeling a little low or if there's too much horror in the news, it just feels healing to be part of a community dedicated to sharing images of things that bring joy into life. It really doesn't get much better than that. It gives me hope. We could all stand to see more joyful photographs, don't you think?

In Meditations on Gratitude we'll focus on making images of the things we love, the things we're grateful for, the things that bring us joy. It's a powerful way to infuse the creative practice with more personality and meaning. By the end of the course, you'll be able to surround yourself with images of all the things you're grateful for in life. It's a rich, happy, life-affirming adventure - and I really can't wait for it to start up again! If you need a little creative kick-start (or an extra dose of happiness), I'd love you to join me. Thanks to all the lovely artists in the slideshow for sharing their work!
