What started as a simple idea turned into something pretty substantial last weekend. I finally got my new camera. I wanted to play with it. So I found someplace close by (Alum Creek State Park) but someplace I had never been. It turned out to be one of my favorite days in recent memories. Just me, a camera, the autumn woods, and a whole lot of wind. I got some great pictures, found some magical places, and came home with six terrariums worth of souvenirs. My belief in signs was kind of cemented somehow that day, not in any one solid experience, but just an overall feeling that I can do anything and that I am meant to live my life every single day doing things like I did that day. The feeling was almost electric, and I am holding onto it for dear life in hopes that someday, every single day will in fact feel like that one.
