Day 15: Memory

A handful of favorite photos for the day’s prompt. Memories, I think, are less about a recollection of facts and more about a stirring up of emotion. So much emotion in all of these photos.

“The best way to capture moments is to pay attention. This is how we cultivate mindfulness.” ― Jon Kabat-Zinn
Writing is something that helps me pay attention.

Courage is riding on the back of a 500 pound dolphin.
And courage is letting all those people hang on to your fin and ride on your back too.

One of my favorite quotes on purpose is this one from Edgar Allen Poe: “The best things in life make you sweaty.”
Wrangling these two rascals sure does make me sweaty sometimes …but oh-so-full of purpose.

Honesty: Even amidst all the sunsets and seashells and dolphins, vacation still has its fair share of arguments and tears and tantrums.
