Be someone's light
Be Someone's Light

A while back I had a drastically bad day. I got some pretty bad personal news, my glasses broke on the way to an event I'd planned on going to with a friend, got into an argument with said friend that hurt me pretty badly, and was just trying to find my way back to my car and it was hot and I couldn't see and I realized I was lost and so much stress and anger and frustration built up in me that all I could do was cry.

So that's what I did. I sat on the grass near the corner of the street I was on and just cried. I just couldn't deal with any of it anymore. But here's where the story turns. A woman whose name I sadly do not recall came and sat next to me and just talked to me. Listened to me. Kinda just let me get it all out.

Now, I've been that for other people before but no one's ever been that for me. I didn't know what it felt like until then. It felt damned good. It felt like in that moment someone gave a shit. That someone would take time out of their day to just help me because I clearly needed it meant the world to me.

That's why I'm writing this. You never know how much that could mean to someone, the life that you could be changing or even potentially saving. Don't just look away when you see someone hurting. Be the light in their moment of darkness. It doesn't take much . A few minutes of your time. A hug. An ear to listen. It all matters. Even if you never know how much it means, just know that does.

Be someone's light.

I want to switch to a lighter camera. First, I must sell my gear, though, and then decide which way to go. Suggestions?

A view from the Isle Ufenau on Lake Zurich from last Thursday.. It was a gorgeous day, almost too warm for me, so the transfer on the boat was very welcome, although it could have lasted a little longer. I was impressed by the color of the lake, it had that Caribbean touch.
