Which, if you've read my blog at all before, is very out of character. I LOVE PICTURES.
But the point is, that while out running today, I passed by a local golf driving range. As I ran past, I flashed back in my mind to a moment that had happened this morning. As I was driving to work, I drove past this particular driving range and was struck by the beauty of it.
A driving range? Beauty? For someone who doesn't enjoy golf, it was a weird pairing.
But it truly was. The driving range is ringed with high lights over a large grassy field. And this morning, there was a low fog that had been suspended over the field. They way the lights were reflected on the fog just struck me and I was compelled. I said to myself:
I should stop and take a picture of that.
I drove on, thinking that I'd missed out on an opportunity, that, without having gotten that picture, that moment of the fog would pass as if it had never happened.
And yet, there it was again, in my mind as I ran past the driving range this evening. And I realized that, not every moment needs to be captured by a camera to stay with us. Sometimes, we get so caught up in trying to capture a moment as a photo that we miss out on the moment itself. That sometimes, a moment is special enough to stay with us without us having to post it on twitter, instagram, or facebook. And that's something that I know I forget all too often.
So tonight's post is a reminder to enjoy those moments. Don't worry about trying to contain them in a perfect square or adjusting them with an imposed filter. Just remember them, as they are. Because some of the best things in life can't be captured on film. Only in our minds and in our hearts.
OK, sappy moment over! I hope you all have a wonderful week and enjoy every moment!
