*this post is more about the feels than the photo, which isn’t all that great*
What is is about looking up that makes us all universally feel good? “Keep your chin up!” “Cheer up!” If feeling sad is known as feeling “down”, the converse must be true. #nikkilogic
We visited GCNP a week before the official full moon, but what we saw was pretty enough. (I didn’t have my tripod – GAH!!!)
I remember including the people in the (lower right of) photo on purpose, for perspective. Not to convey size, but to convey a feeling. In that moment, I “felt like” a quote from a book I loved. (If you haven’t read it, DO!!! The movie was surprisingly good, too, but I am a BookGirl at heart.)
“Because I know there are people who say all these things don’t happen. And there are people who forget what it’s like to be sixteen when they turn seventeen. I know these will all be stories some day, and our pictures will become old photographs. We all become somebody’s mom or dad. But right now, these moments are not stories. This is happening. I am here, and I am looking at her. And she is so beautiful. I can see it. This one moment when you know you’re not a sad story. You are alive. And you stand up and see the lights on the buildings and everything that makes you wonder. And you’re listening to that song, and that drive with the people who you love most in this world. And in this moment, I swear, we are infinite.”
― Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Hope you feel the feeling of infinity sooner rather than later! Happy Friday!
PS…I said I was going to make my next post about sunset, but I felt like sneaking this one in first. I hope you don’t mind 🙂
