Yet there is always something lacking when I do that. The need to create is very strong in me. And even as I sit watching TV, or in the car on a drive with my husband, I think about taking pictures, about writing, about travel…and I sure wish I had a camera with me all the time. Of course, you’re supposed to have one with you all the time. Everyone tells you that. And I have loads of good intentions along that line. But…there I am. Quite often without a camera.
On my drive to work each morning I do a lot of “looking.” As I cross over the river I look at the reeds where a family of swans has been hiding all summer. When I drive by one particular field I look for the deer which hide there, and I sure don’t want to be surprised by one who decides to sprint across the road.
The sunrises are spectacular as we head into fall. Especially as the fog in low-lying areas burns off.
What I really love is the quiet. The time to get ready for my day and be thankful we have one more day to get it right – to make a difference – to experience the joy each day can bring.
