When I arrived at the airport today, I bought a cup of coffee before my flight and settled in at the gate. I did not join all the other travelers in opening my laptop or staring at my phone for the entire ttime; I watched the rain for a while before I got lost in my phone. And then the clouds broke up and the sun started to shine.
I walked closer to the window and took one picture of the sky because the light on the clouds was stunning. It was only when I looked more closely at the photo that I saw the baggage carts floating on reflected clouds. So I played with the image a bit to highlight the surprisingly beautiful baggage carts and cropped out the glorious sky.
It's late, I'm tired, and I can't find the words to say what I want to about this. Looking down is as important as looking up. Changing the frame can take you surprising places. Just keeping your eyes open is so important to creativity. I can feel an good essay trying to get out, but the pressure of posting now so I can get some sleep before tomorrow's very long work day is getting in the way. I'll sleep on all these ideas and see what I can shake loose in the next few days.
