Yesterday began with rainwater gurgling through the downspout outside my bedroom. The sound woke me before the light of day. During the next few hours as the sun rose, I could see the colors of the tree right next to me, but the rest of the world was a dingy grey. Woe.
The window cleaner kept his 8:30 a.m. appointment and by noon, visibility had improved ten-fold. Although the clouds hung around for the rest of the day, and the rain made scattered appearances, all I could pay attention to were clean screens and glass. Dingy grey never looked so pretty.
Wouldn't it be nice if we could change our thoughts that quickly, like a camera on auto focus?
I think we'd automatically be drawn to the light.
During the month of November, as part of NaPhoPoMo, I intend to post at least one photo a day here. Sometimes with a little story, sometimes with only a caption, always in the hope of resisting the urge for it all to be perfect.
