There is beauty in any moment. Even in the smallest things.
Even when you aren’t expecting it.

Beauty right beside you every day. It is sometimes hidden. Other times it is staring you in the face or whispering in your ear even though you might not see or hear it.

Catherine Bede’s art and music invites you to notice this beauty in your own life. To take it in. To feel its warmth. To breathe in the space that it creates for you. To open your awareness and discover that no matter what, this beauty is always here if you only take the moment and look.
