There is a meditative quality to arranging objects in pleasing juxtapositions to each other.

These beach objects–stone and kelp–arranged themselves in space.

I loved this Daily Create challenge–to make a video of yourself building a 3-D assemblage. I take great pleasure in arranging altars, mantelpiece displays, and window-boxes, so this was the perfect excuse to clean out the dining room window-box and rearrange it with fresh flowers and objects from our trips–including a large chunk of coral from Kauai and the Native Hawaiian flag.

There is a meditative quality to arranging objects in pleasing juxtapositions to each other.
I am reminded of a poem by my friend Janet Barocco:

The deep, rich tones
of subtle grace
that dance and play within
the space
of light between
often pass unseen
and leave no residue or trace
except a fragrance
lingering
in their place
of music
never heard before.
