Temple of Small Wishes by Carroll Swenson-Roberts

“Temple of Small Wishes” touch the commonality of ordinary life. We often forget the pleasure derived from meeting our basic needs. We take them for granted. But as trivial as shaving, indoor plumbing or comfortable napping, it is the universal desires all humans share. For some, they are the luxury of obliviousness. For others, they are out of reach. Roberts neither comments nor criticizes. Here, she simply paints the joy and enshrines such happiness so we all can embrace.
