This was a glimpse, said Polek,... I was streching in the living room when Tae, my 2 year old, was napping, and this was the glimpse when I opened my eyes between stretches. If the feature photo is a glimpse of life between stretches, the second one, below, is a glimpse of life between naps. … Continue reading What we see when we open our eyes… with Polek Rybczynski
I wish it didn't end. That's the feedback we're happy to receive from the Wellness Almanac's intagram takeover project - from followers and from photographers. Shayla Wallace took over the account from April 24 - May 1: I couldn’t help but feel amazed by how many people I’ve reached.

I took it when I was up in the bird the other week. I … Continue reading Photo of the Week: Polek Rybczynski
