February Mosaic

"That which is false troubles the heart, but truth brings joyous tranquility." - Mevlana Rumi


The picture above is my February Mosaic based on the color purple and the them of "tranqility and stability" for Magnetised by Life's monthly mosaic challenge.


  1. Purple hyacinth bought at Kroger and shot with my 50mm f/1.4 lens
  2. Berry scented candle that was a Christmas gift. It smells scrumptuous.
  3. Seagull taking flight at Topsail Beach, NC while visiting with my son who returned from Afghanistan this month.
  4. Egg, nest and feather to represent "feathering my nest." Home represents stability and tranquility to me.
  5. Another beach shot from Topsail.
  6. Lavender and Sage diffuser bought specifically with this challenge in mind.
  7. Some artificial thistle blossoms and a new vase, again purchased with this theme in mind.
  8. The "snow moon" in February. Captured in Jacksonville, NC during my son's homecoming visit.
  9. Pretty astromeria lilies that sat on our table at Chick-Fil-A


Some of these images are going to be repeated in my One Little Word Project for February, which I am late wrapping up, but I will get to it this weekend. I'm almost done, so stay tuned for that.

One of the rules for this challenge is to include a quote that goes along with the theme. The quote by Rumi really speaks to the core of my own challenges this month.

We may be able to think our way right into denial about a situation we face, but the heart always knows the truth and it will trouble us until the truth is understood and dealt with appropriately. One of the lessons I'm learning as an adult is to listen when my heart is troubled and understand that those feelings arise from falsehoods that need to be rooted out and examined in the light of truth.

The more painful the truth, the harder it is to face and the harder it is to feel at peace until you do.
