Thinking of You

It was the only time I left my camera at home throughout the entire trip.

All I had with me was my iPhone and the camera it contained, so I wasn’t without a camera, but I chose to leave the bulk at home and just enjoy a walk for its own sake.

The skies were a steely grey and the winds chilly enough to warrant a hoodie or light jacket. Leaves on the trees were beginning to change, some already scattered along the driveway and road to the lake. October often brings a certain smell with it, the scent of crisp air, hinting at the chill to come. Though it was nowhere near October, an early Autumn was evident and as I walked along the driveway, gravel crunching underfoot, I smiled as I saw this heart growing up out of the fallen foliage.

More than a few times I walked out to the shore at camp, taking in the view and thought to myself just how much I wanted someone to share these experiences with. I wasn’t sure where a thought like that would take me, especially because the last time I had those thoughts, the earth moved.

And when I saw this heart, a few seconds earlier, I was imagining what it would feel like to have someone walking with me, sharing in that quiet solitude.

When that happens it may not mean that the world will move quickly, but it does mean that things are changing and on the move. Which is perhaps the most important takeaway from its appearance.

Shortly after seeing that heart, I found others within minutes of one another, making me smile as if to say, “Don’t worry, she’s on her way, Beautiful.”

And even more still…

Things are on the move. 

And I’m good with that.
