Dominique Browning’s December—— The Month of Gratitude
There’s a fascinating interview by Patti Verbanas in New Jersey Life, Heath and Beauty Magazine with Dominique Browning, the author of “SLOW LOVE: How I Lost My Job, Put On My Pajamas and Found Happiness”; the beautifully crafted blog SLOW LIVE LOVE; and many books.
Her most recent blog proclaims December to be the Month of Gratitude. The idea was sparked by an unusual nativity scene she spotted outside a church in Tiverton, Rhode Island. Check out the blog and you’ll see her heartwrenching photograph of an unforgettable group of carved figures. It’s definitely not your average Christmas scene.
The recent book, as you’ll see in this New York Times review, is a moving study of her life as it fell apart in 2007. Overnight her beloved magazine folded after 12 years under her helm and she found herself living in Rhode Island in a whole new environment.
The journey back to happiness that she describes opening and honestly is a wise and comforting one. Her website is very special and definitely worth checking out. She now makes time to enjoy and document every moment with eyes that take it all in.
