Ok, part of the motivation behind this “photo-a-day” project is to carve out a bit of mindfulness during my day, to do something deliberate. Take the photo, and write about it in a deliberate, intentional, mindful way, thereby achieving a moment of consciousness.
Well, it doesn’t always happen that way, as evidenced by yesterday’s/today’s post. Last night, at about 9:15, I’m driving home from a meeting when I realize that, dammit, I have yet to take my photo for the day. Naturally, I decide to try to take pictures of the fading sunset while I’m driving. This is not my proudest moment of mindfulness. And then I didn’t even get a chance to post the photo.
Sometimes we rush through our intentions, which makes me wonder, is the point of this project to be truly awake and conscious when I take the photo or is the point to just snap a damn photo every day?
Speaking of which, I’m on my way back out of town this afternoon. I’ll be in a rural area with no internet access, so I won’t be posting for a couple of days. But I’ll be sure to have some beautiful photos. Stay tuned!
