248. Life through a lens

Life through a lens always looks razor sharp. That’s why teens take selfies and watch concerts through their cell phones. It’s why I now ask my daughter to pose for me before she heads off to university.

    A little different form your usual fare. If I may ask, are you speaking here as yourself or a character? I think yourself, but I could be wrong. In any case, very touching and bittersweet. Would that we all could always remain as idealistic as when we first wet our toes in the waters of life. But said life has a way of pulling us down until we can barely keep our heads above the water.

    This conjured up a memory of a photograph snapped of one of my daughters and her best friend on their first day of college. We lived a few blocks from the university so it’s not as if she would be leaving the nest. Still, it was a big day for her. That was 18 years ago, and when I think of her fresh, young, smiling face in the picture, I get a surreal feeling—so many experiences for her, so many new people in her life (hubby and five children), a short-lived teaching career, several moves around the country……….Honestly, I think her life is richer than she could have imagined on that August morning so many years ago.
