Location: Sandy Stream, Unity, Maine
Weather: overcast turned to a mist and increasing to a light rain as I made my way along a lunchtime run.
Observation: I though about stopping this project when I hit 25 today. At least that was the conversation that went through my head. I mean 25 is a good number! I was thinkging that perhaps the photos are silly, or too frequent, and perhaps not really interesting enough. It my best. Then I thought, who are they not interesting enough for? It’s interesting to me, observing nature everyday no matter where I am or what life throws at me matters to me.
This project is rekindling my joy for being open and on the lookout for what catches my eye. It gets me out the door for a run, or to stop the car and soak in a moment that I might not otherwise stop for. It gets me to slow down, even if just for a minute to see, feel, smell, touch, and taste the moment.
And this is reason enough to continue the project. In fact that was why I am doing the 100 Day Project this year on #100daysofnaturefieldnotes. Keeping it simple by capturing an image (or images), editing them, and then blogging about what I am seeing and tracking the weather all on my Iphone.
