On the weekend, I was wandering through the forest as the magic hour (final hour of the day) approached. I took a variety of self-portraits for about 50 minutes, but didn’t feel I was getting the photo I wanted. Then I noticed a ray of sunlight falling on a tree. It looked beautiful and I paused for a moment.
I thought about how lucky I was not to be in bed with chronic pain due to my multiple myeloma or chronic fatigue due to chemo. I felt fortunate that I had not become blind due to previous glaucoma scares and that I had friends that cared about me. I also felt happy that I had a working camera for my creative expression.
