I begin each day with my favorite ritual:
- I wake up (this is a must);
- I climb up the 8 steps leading me up top to the deck; and finally
- I take a glimpse at the sunrise.
Most times as I am making my way up a flock of pelicans fly over like a troupe of fighter planes. This usually happens when my hand is empty without a camera on-the-ready to capture the moment. But then, there are times when this happens:
I enjoy regular paddleboard rides with nearby friends. I am of the lucky and fortunate ones who happens to live on a boat, and currently this boat is in paradise. That’s the best part of being unemployed and suffering from one of the worst labor market hits in history.
I’ve recently decided that a must-have on these rides is my underwater camera. I chose this particular camera because it not only came with a hard case in order to withstand the pressures of a dive, but because the camera itself is fully submersible. Technically. I find no matter what setting I choose for out of water shots, the pictures are always over-exposed. Sometimes this works in my favor.
What does fleeting mean to you? I love this word because it can mean so much, and depending on where you’re at in your life it can change meanings for you as well. It’s a beautiful word. Almost as good as the word me.
