“Life is like photography. You need the negatives to develop.”
Ziad K. Abdelnour

 

So, you took a picture? What else did you do? Did you crouch to examine little flowers and insects? Did you lie on your back to look at the passing clouds? Did you breathe deeply to appreciate the nuances of temperature and scents in the air? Were you mindful of the silence or the bird calls or the tapping of raindrops? Did you run your fingers over textured rock or soft leaves? Did you set worries aside to admire the dance of light in the water? Did you put your toes to the edge to feel the call of life drawing you back? Did you contemplate your being? your place? your transience?

Don’t tell me you just took a picture…                                                Guy Tal
