There are times when I wish technology would just hurry up and invent a camera that we install in our eyes, and that can be activated with a thought. Every day, I see things that I wish could instantly be recorded somewhere other than in my fleeting memory; gorgeous snippets of life that are worth sharing with the world or revisiting later. But it would be either impractical or embarrassing to whip out a camera, so they are lost in the flow of time.
A sidewalk covered in snow. Two sets of tracks come toward the camera; human boot prints, and a dog’s tiny footprints. At the bottom of the photo are a pair of boots in mid-step, and a snowy dog’s head; the dog is walking on the human tracks, and the human is walking on the dog tracks, but in the opposite direction. The caption underneath reads “The Walk Home”.
It’d be nicer if you saw it. But dude, it was too cold to remove my mittens.
Ah but here’s Willow all covered in snow and too much fur. We’re working on a new trick where I say “shake”, and she does her dog shake to get all the snow off. This is useful so she splashes wet snow all over the place before coming inside (plus it’s just really cute).
