Capture the Thought

Days have a way of slipping by. If I don’t write in the morning, life often gets in the way, and I don’t get around to blogging. A little piece of me gets lost on those days.

Along similar lines, I read an article yesterday about keeping a journal to record words and quotes from various sources that capture your interest. Phrases or sentences that provoke delight or inspiration. I like that idea.

I often read things that cause me to pause in wonder or admiration at a thought or turn of phrase. I reflect on it in the moment, and then it flits away into oblivion. Taking a few minutes to jot down the words makes a return visit possible. Perhaps with new insights or renewed appreciation the second (or third, or fourth!) time around.

Photographs capture moments and memories as well. The iPhone in my pocket allowed me to capture the shimmer of sun across the water in Woods Hole late yesterday afternoon, crystalizing a memory of peaceful wandering on an unseasonably warm day in February.
