That’s what kids call it, according to this cool blog I just discovered, after taking this picture. I ventured into town today (from the edge of civilization) for a walk and coffee with a friend. She lives a few blocks from here in a historic home that sits at the end of the canyon this bridge spans. We didn’t walk across the bridge today, but had on another occasion, so I went back after our visit to check it out again. It looks quiet, but there were people behind me, and at the far end a photo shoot was taking place. It was wiggly.
It has been over two years since I posted a photo of the day, and I’ve decided that was enough of a break. My favorite way to reminisce is through photos, and I appreciate having podnumber2 to reflect back on our last year in Virginia Beach and our time in Seattle. I think that noticing and documenting are important, not necessarily for an audience, but for the practices of being curious and aware. And now we’re in California! I’ll admit I came reluctantly, but of course there is much to appreciate, and activities and scenery worth remembering.
I’m inspired by my friend at wabisabisole.com who has been documenting her life in Japan, and realized I not only had a similar forum but could approach my days likewise, as a new adventure. Next year and every year after, I’ll have my photo journal to refer to. I recommend it – the exercise, not my blog – for everyone.
Today was our first waking in our own beds after a trip to visit our friends in Japan. I went for a long run and was thankful I brought my phone. I suppose I should for safety, but the only reason I’m motivated to is to take pics. So I will from now on.
