It's warming up, summer is just a month away, but it's already in the air, just above the surface, just waiting. Since I'm not in school anymore, summertime isn't what it used to be. As a wedding photographer, my days are often filled with lens flare and loving couples, and the hot summer nights are cooled by open windows as I edit into the night, face blue with the glow of my computer.
I've been traveling a bit lately (London for the first time and Vancouver to talk at the Canada Photo Convention a few weeks ago) and am actually currently writing this this a few hours before shooting a wedding in Hawaii. But with all the moving around, I've been finding myself day dreaming more than usual.
Like, I wonder if ghosts have nightmares they're alive again. If they're haunted by their memories of feelings, like hair being pulled, paper cuts, and heartache. If they're scared of stuck in a place of life again, where their bodies could still feel pain and the sun burns your skin; bound by the walls and gravity.
I wonder if acorns know their own potential. If they sit on the ground feeling powerful until they become trees or if they feel very little and unimportant.
I wonder the weather is good where you are. If your afternoons are filled with daydreams, and if you are feeling happy.
I hope you are.
