March #SOL16 Day 24
I love to take pictures.
I can hear my friend’s voice in my ear as I stop dead in my tracks to grab my phone and take a quick pic. I can hear her say, don’t reach for your phone – just enjoy the moment!
But, I can’t. I mean….I choose not to.
I enjoy scrolling through the many, many, many pictures I’ve taken. They are a diary of sorts. They mark various points in my life. They make me happy.
I was on the treadmill the other morning. While walking I vacillated between watching T.V. and appreciating the view outside my window. Suddenly I noticed a huge, round, yellow moon just about to set in the western skyline. I thought, should I get my phone? No. Keep walking. Just look and enjoy. Argh! I couldn’t bear it! I jumped off and took a few good shots of that bulbous celestial body! I felt better.
After completing my walk I hobbled (what? It was a long walk!) out into my living room where I saw another beautiful sight. The sun was rising. I thought, how often will I see the moon set and the sun rise all within the span of 40 minutes?
I took a picture.
