It's hard to say why things are so complicated in life. Sometimes it's one thing. Sometimes it's a combination of things. But whenever the camera comes out, the complications of life go away.
It's just me. It's just my camera. I dare not speak as I don't want to disturb the life around me. For so many years, I went went went......and to where? And for what?? Today, I know that you don't have to go far to find the magic of your own home or garden. It's always been there. Just took me awhile to figure it out. Just be.
And when I see these amazing things around me, I forget everything and just stand in awe of the power that nature provides. There are even moments when a tear forms at the corner of my eye. I don't even care if anyone knows that anymore because it's true. Some call it God. Some call it Nature. Whatever It is, I can certainly feel the power and wonder of our Universe at work....but It is. And when those moments happen, my camera has a hard time focusing.
Today I happened upon Coyotes. I was alone. Not scared. But I was respectful of our space. And that little kid came out with a little laugh....but never anything loud because our little laughs make the wild things run. And it takes awhile to find them safely hidden from people. I wondered if these Coyotes were ever chased by people. What was their experience like around us? But I didn't let the thought linger too long because it bothered me to think what the answer might be.
We looked at each other for a moment. My work was unimportant, my life meaningless.....because here in this moment was something called perfection. And if glow were an emotion than that is what I was feeling. And I begin to understand why the Native people's used the Coyote as a symbol. It was that powerful.
