Images to Inspire...

Follow the day to day musings of Harmony.  See the things, people, places and ideas she is inspired by.  

Walk with her through these images. Discover that there is divinity everywhere and God resides within the realms of the ordinary world. 

Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.
