Breadth of Life
Have you ever spent some time looking at the world from a perspective not your own? Last week, I did just that. Took my trusty camera outdoors, and without seeing the image preview--with my arms at awkward angles--took a photo of a yellow daisy from the bottom up.
From a different perspective, I obtain an entirely new vantage point, one that would have remained obscured had it not been for a change in thought, a reworking of a life's narrative. A minute detail noticed brings with it a sweet significance and a calming sense of peace. I won't use the ocean analogy here--but I will say this: Images jog memories and foster a semi-fleeting sense of clarity when it all seems so murky, allowing the present to carry on. And carry on, we do.
