Synkroniciti is ecstatic to welcome back Sara Collie (2:3), this time with a beautiful photo essay called “The Art of Deadheading.” Sara guides us gently to a place of play and purpose, wedding the creative impulse to the gardening practice of deadheading, or removing spent and fading flowers to encourage more bloom, and showing how the result can calm and heal us.
To read and experience this beautiful, transformative piece, you should subscribe or purchase the issue.
