2013.06.30 Simply a collection

You see, like a child collects stones or leaves or twigs along the path,
I collect photographs.
Even with no intention to do so,
inevitably something comes into my awareness that needs to be collected.
I need to pause and revere the scene,
the moment,
as I frame an image.
Each one is a marker, a reminder, a special moment
to later be pulled out and cherished.
~ Kat Sloma at Kat Eye Studio

And I learned what is obvious to a child.
That life is simply a collection of little lives,
each lived one day at a time.
That each day should be spent
finding beauty in flowers and poetry and talking to animals.
~ Nicholas Sparks

This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
~ Psalm 118:24
