Sometimes I think how simple it is to have something we maybe take for granted in our daily habits go from “ordinary to extraordinary”. My husband laughs at me cause I’m always talk about ambiance…. whether it’s a candle lit just to give that pretty glow light or the beautiful morning light with a soft cloth napkin, a pretty glass, a daisy petal on my plate, or just the dog’s nose so hard at work to capture the smells of daily life….
I cherish it all every single day and I capture some part of it each and every day with my camera lens a little bit. This makes me happy and I sort of freeze that moment in time that I can come back to again and again…. and I do as I tend to cogitate life frequently!
Awwww….it’s sometimes just the “simple” things that make life so special to me! I call that “Appreciation”; a special gift of being self aware enough to “See” and seeing is an Art. (hence The Art of Seeing)
Sometimes I think I was “born” this way (I guess I was to some extent, cause I’ve have always been more than a little passionate with my photography and making “sets” to make my eyes dance with the light since about the age of 8 years old) and sometimes I think after surviving 3 cancers that dominated about 15 years of my total life… you just “see” and “appreciate” and “desire” beauty maybe in a little different perspective, I don’t know for sure… but I do all I can to create the most simple pleasures, that many others may never stop to see, into my cherished memories and moments of a lifetime for myself… I think about is as the Everyday lifestyles made a little fuller, a little richer, a little more memorable with just that extra moment to give it a “thoughtful” touch.
Enjoy and take a moment to be give a little joy along your journey… while it’s all about your life… life has more meaning when you give back a little. Thanks for the memories! Classic… Now Share & Enjoy!
