I take a picture everyday to remind me to be aware of not only my environment, but also of time. A photograph captures a moment and that is what I try to do with meditation: to be fully present in the moment without ego, fear, and expectations. This is hard because I worry about the past, plan for the future, etc. When my mind is running around everyplace like a spastic child, it is difficult to be here calmly. With practice both picture-of-the-day and meditation will come easier. After that, the writing.
Thanks for all the encouragement and feedback! I encourage you to try meditating for a few minutes or taking a picture every day for one week! Let me know how you like it.
