At Lake Louise: 177/365 and a Slice

At Lake Louise

I wasn’t planning to write a post this morning but it’s Slice of Life Tuesday and this is my writing time. So I opened my iPhoto library and let my fingers do the clicking and I landed here, because a shot like this still blows me away. 

I took this photo! I took this photo. Imagine, someone who  used to have trouble just loading film in a camera could shoot this. I am so grateful for digital cameras, just like I’m grateful for this new writing and publishing.

A friend on FaceBook left me a comment yesterday sharing news that her 88 year old mom who after years of never considering herself a writer, is now published, now has a book. I say BRAVO, but you know, I’m published.  Every day I publish into the world and I’m read.  I don’t need to get someone to agree that I should be, I can just write, click publish and my words are out in the  in the world.

How amazing is that?

I can capture a bird, I can write for the world and I haven’t had my first cup of coffee yet.  I live in a wonderful time,don’t you think?

Feel free to visit TWO WRITING TEACHERS for more Slices today.

  1. We all live in a wonderful time. Every day, we put ourselves out there, into cyberspace, and publish our thinking. If one takes a step back & thinks about the amazing amount of freedom we’ve been granted, to do that, it is powerful. Ah, I love this country.

    Probably not the comment I was expecting to give… but that’s okay right?

  2. I never know what my writing will look like until it’s out there. It’s good to wake up and get positive as you write. What a way to start the day-smiling!

  3. This *is* a great capture! I love the light, the color, the subject…

    Is that Lake Louise in Banff National Park, Alberta? That is a gorgeous place! Like you, I love having a place to put my words out there. It has certainly effected the quality of my writing, and the motivation to keep doing it.

    • Yes, Lisa,
      We traveled from Seattle to Vancouver, then a train to Jasper, then LL and on to Banff and finishing in Calgary. Lots of hotels and great mountains…
      And then home to get to process the experience here.

    What a wonderfully inspirational post! We never stop learning and by that association we never stop surprising ourselves with what we can do when we really set our minds to it.
