A Search for Beauty and Purpose

I’ve been feeling a little dry creatively lately.  I’ve been lacking in ideas for blog posts and I’ve just come to realize the same has been true in my home and work as well.  The simplest tasks of fluffing pillows and taking pictures has just felt so draining to me.
