- Walk-abouts in a blizzard - bundled up & looking like the Michelin Tire woman
- Putting on leopard Target rain boots to hike across a newly plowed, muddy field to check out a small wooded area for recent deer trails
- Sitting in a car beside the ocean in a lightning storm to see if I can catch a brilliant lightning strike with my camera
- Slowly driving alongside newly harvested fields in search of gorgeous displays of autumn & peaceful moments
Today was such a day. And, I couldn't resist it. I donned a light rain jacket (since I usually CAN'T stay IN the truck) and headed out for a mid-morning photo shoot in the rain.
I just recently read a National Geographic news article stating that women see colors more vibrantly than men do. Could that be? I'm sure National Geographic wouldn't lie. And, it certainly would be explanation of the lack of ardor from my husband when I shriek with excitement, "Stop the car. Let me take a picture. Isn't that awesome!?!"
Regardless of the validity of that study, I am so very grateful that I get SO excited about the simple beauty of changing leaves & muddy puddles of rain & horses coats soaked with rain as they graze in a field & grass worn down in a path in a wooded area across the field by last night's deer. For me, they are all signs of God's love for me. He made me the way I am - to love & be touched by those simple things.
