oh what fleeting moments I should capture, oh what memories I should still possess

Sometimes you just need to sit down

and eat a bowl of ice cream

as big as your face.

the shadows we cast

What I see is my big shadow entirely covering my little niece as she sits in the grass. What I hope is that I can be a good enough example for her, that my deeds might cast half as great a shadow on her life as that literal one. What I fear is I'll fall far, far short of even half.

What I see is my giant shadow engulfing my little niece as she sits in the grass. What I hope is that I have enough goodness in me that my example will cast half as great a shadow on her life as that literal one. What I fear is I’m falling far, far short of even half.

You can preach

a better sermon

with your life

than with your lips.

What I see are a bunch of pretty little flowers. What I know is that entire stalk was as big as my thumb.

do small things in a great way.

Which side is up?

What I see is a recessed ceiling alcove with little circular windows surrounding a chandelier that hangs at the top of a circular staircase. What I think is this view is disorienting!

Every orientation

presupposes a disorientation.

Goin’ Fishin’

What I see is my niece heading out with her fishing tackle in tow. What I think is I like catching fish more than I like fishing.

.

If people concentrated on the

really important things in life,

there’d be a shortage of fishing poles.
