There are moments when your mortality comes into question. I was told once by a psychic who was dead on with most things that I would die in my seventies surrounded by my children and grandchildren. That doesn’t seem like a bad way to go…I think? I’m 46 so I could have anywhere for 24 to 33 years left….that’s not a lot of time. Of course…I could get hit by a beer truck tomorrow,but I prefer to hold on the the seventies image.
What has brought on this line of thinking? Maybe it’s been the battle with the Plantar Fasciitis? I have been having a good couple of days with that one, it must be getting better. Maybe it’s because the last week or so I cannot read while wearing my contacts? I am okay with my glasses, but who wants to wear glasses? Stupid Presbyopia….one day I am fine and the next my reading is gone…not fair. It’s a good thing my Gucci’s are super cute because Monday through Friday they will be on my face. Looks like I will be getting progressive lenses in my next pair of glasses, I have til March to come to grips with that one.
Yesterday when I was driving the girl to meet her ride before I went to work I was in awe of the moon. It was huge and shining brightly through the trees that were frosted with snow. It took everything I had to not pull over to try and capture the moment. Two things stopped me…I only have the camera on my phone and our engineers office is a joke. The road conditions are a disgrace and a sign of a lazy person who makes too much money. He had the nerve to make a statement on the news about bad drivers….yes I was alone in my living room m- f-ing the television. I said a lot to that pompous ass that couldn’t hear me. Why can’t the girl show interest in a college that is not here?
I am so tired of taking crappy pictures. All of the cameras that I have ever had have never been able to capture the magic of the moon. I have always wanted a real camera but never could I bring myself to buy one. Don’t panic…I didn’t buy one and no..I am not planning on taking anything out of my savings to buy one, but…. I did stop at a trusted camera shop yesterday just to see…. and this is what I found for a beginner.
They have a layaway and there is no time limit on it…..I just might take advantage of the sale and put it in layaway next week. Every time that I have ever felt the urge to stop and capture a moment it is in the early morning. There is just something about the light during that time. Too bad for me I really like my sleep. When I am all snuggled in, under my cozy warm blankets…the last thing I want to do is get out of bed, yet that is where the morning light magic happens. I remember taking the girl to school a couple of years ago…I came around the bend and there was a rising fog over an empty cornfield filled with geese. The light was perfect and that would have been an amazing photo but I didn’t have the right equipment or the time to take it. I may…do this next week, maybe? I am seriously considering it. Life is short….I want to take the picture.
I have been making book trees, mostly for family but I did sell three more. This next week will be a busy one, trying to finish everything up by Christmas Eve. I’m not stressing yet, I think I will be fine. I am meeting SB tomorrow to exchange out Christmas presents over dinner. It sure will be awkward carrying in that box holding the driftwood tree. July feels like a lifetime ago. This getting old stuff is for the birds…..Zia
