Take a Picture It Lasts Longer

Last night, standing outside my backdoor, looking at the chimney on the grill, charcoal smoke wafting up into the air, the driveway sloping down to the old garage/shed, the billowy clouds and blue sky, a fantastic perspective, I thought about running to get my digital camera and snapping a picture, then thought, Art is about noticing these things, a reminder about how it feels to be alive. Just drink it in. Just enjoy it.
