Tranquility, for just a moment

Certain objects are infused with a feeling or an emotion. It may be because of what an object represents, where it was found, or what it brings to mind, but for some reason certain objects tend to trigger memories. Here are 2 objects that always make me feel calm, if for but a moment in a hectic day.

This is a painting by Leo. Julia and I purchased it from the artist when we were in France on our honeymoon. When I see it out of the corner of me eye, for a moment, I am there again.

A bonsai tree doesn't do anything quickly. This tree always makes me slow down to watch it grow for a few minutes.
