Certain things just don’t go as expected. My plan. Grab my camera and go for a walk at the nature preserve, with my dog. Easy enough right? Not always. The most simple plan can never be forced.
As we arrive the edge of the nature preserve along Lake Michigan, red winged black birds shuttle around and I began to set up my camera. I take one picture and something goes wrong with the lens. I am not able to take any more pictures.
Stanley rolls in the grass and looks up at me with a grin. He is usually right about things when it comes to a walk. His mission – to just enjoy. As I give in, we spend the next hour walking around the edge of the lake admiring the birds, butterflies and wildflowers – without purpose or a lens.
