things that make life worth living
It was only a sunny smile, and little it cost in the giving, but like morning light it scattered the night and made the day worth living. ~F. Scott Fitzgerald
There's a brilliant blooming dogwood in my new neighborhood, one that I noticed every time I was headed home from the grocery store. One morning I made sure to pack my Hasselblad with me, and spent 45 minutes firing off an entire roll of images, all of that tree. It was time (and film) well spent.
Also... I love F. Scott Fitzgerald's short stories. The descriptions and dialogue drive me crazy in a good way.
