The peace lily is one of my favorite plants/flowers because of its graceful curves, its simple elegance, and its name.
I took this picture years ago when I worked in Birmingham. I wish it had been much sharper, but I didn’t really know what I was doing technically with my photography then. I did like how starkly white it looked against the black door that was behind it.
In any case, tonight, I post this in honor of my friends, Roy & Mary Parker, their children, Brad and Denise, and the rest of the family & community who have been so shaken by a barbaric and senseless crime.
I hope they can find light in their darkness and peace in the midst of the storm.
So may we all.
