I had a busy start to the weekend. I had to work Friday night into Saturday morning. (I will tell you the story behind that, but it will have to wait until this Friday.)
I got home early Saturday morning and found that though I was very tired, I couldn’t fall deeply asleep. I dozed off and on until it was time to feed Chase Bird about 6 a.m. Then I went back to bed and tried again.
Saturday passed in a blur of sleep, going out for a late lunch, reading, and more sleep.
Sunday I knew what I wanted to do. I had been eying some Queen Anne’s Lace along the street across from our house. I wanted to get some close-ups.
My camera has been sitting in its bag for much of the summer. I just haven’t felt the energy or desire to capture slivers of the world.
The Queen Anne’s Lace was my get-back-into-it bit of nature.
It felt good to use my camera to get out of my own mind for a while. And being out in nature reminds me—if I am mindful—that I am not the center of the universe.
That’s a pretty good thing to remember, don’t you think?
