It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.
Today, it is time to start the climb out of the abyss and return to the known world.
Today, I took out the camera and my trusty Zune player, loaded my “Fun” playlist. It is mid-October, and the world is beginning to shift from its summer greens to the oranges, reds, and browns of autumn. The sky this morning was a clear blue, and the atmosphere was clean that the light almost hurt my eyes. Everything seemed brighter, clearer, and sharper.
It seems that I have been in the abyss for awhile, wandering around, trying to find my way out. One thing that helps is to look for beauty in whatever form I can find. And using the camera helps me find it. Beauty becomes the boon that lifts me back into the known world.
