There are things in the past year, like the 300+ black birds swarming around on Christmas eve like a Hitchcock movie, and the mother and baby manatees I saw swimming a mile from my house, and the white flocks of ibises casually wandering around my neighbor’s driveway on their long legs that I wish I could take pictures of.
The fact that I am longing for a camera after all these years is proof that my life is improving, because finally things are happening that I feel are worth documenting.
I’ve always taken tons of pictures of my daughter on her birthday and dutifully paid for every FoxMar school picture package. But now I’m seeing spontaneous little moments and things that look like art to me, so I really have to save up and make a digital camera happen.
It pisses me off that I actually saw a double rainbow, as in 2 rainbows, one behind the other, and all I have to remember it is a grainy cell phone picture.
