What is a good life? 

So the three of us sat down to discuss what we wanted this collaboration to represent. We kept coming back to what it feels like when finding happiness in a honest and balanced life.

At the time we were all sitting in Serena's warm and welcoming home, surrounded by beautiful pieces of Kura art, drinking tea and eating cakes.

Life was good.

Of course we all have our own sets of challenges when travelling our own paths, perhaps bearing witness to some of the world's broader challenges. It would be remiss to ignore this fact.

But what we wanted to do was to simply celebrate when life is good.

We called this realistic gratitude; an active observation and acknowledgement of the gifts we do have.

Here's to living a good life. Honouring your needs. Slowing down. Drinking tea. Being creative. Enjoying beautiful things. Being in nature. Getting to do what you love.
