With every click of the shutter,
you’re only trying to press pause on your life.
If only so you can feel a little more comfortable moving on
living in a world stuck on play…

  7. That is why I miss my phone and its camera. I dropped it in the toilet St. Patties Day (I know you read about THAT). I could care less about calling people — I miss taking pictures of the world around me in the moment. For I look back at those moments and am filled with love and eternity.

  8. I remember sitting in my parents living room. Blank wall at the ready. The click of the carousel as the slide show began. Today, I sit at my computer, thousands of photos at my fingertips, images refreshing moments and memories. With the touch of a button I can share that memory. I LOVE photos. I love technology and I love this post.

  9. Maybe. Or maybe it’s just to share with others the extraordinary beauty that my eyes are fortunate to behold. My natural inclination is still to simply be part of whatever experience I am having. The pause is a frequent and familiar necessity. ❤
