Following the Sunlight
I've been quiet lately.
Musing. Hungering for peace + God's touch. For solitude and grace.
I wrote in my last post
I've found myself chasing sunlight during the late afternoons, wanting nothing more than to sit in it and drink up the warm, life-giving rays. Probably because I've been musing over some things lately. Sunshine is so comforting - it asks nothing in return, only gives its warmth.
And it's true. I've been aching for that warmth + quiet and time alone with my soul...time to breathe and think and be. It's been an eventful first week of school, leaving me thoughtful and wanting to grasp my goals + hopes for this year. The night before classes started, I found myself with a word in my mind. One word, that described how I felt for the day. A word for that day.
I jotted it down in my phone, on the note app and added the date. I didn't think anything of it at first. But then the next day came and at the end of it, I found myself with another word in my mind.
And so it went. For the past week.
There is a small yet meaningful sense of contentment and satisfaction in choosing one word to mark my overall feelings for the day. A tangible, one-word memory.
I intend to keep on, and may even attempt to take a photograph each day that captures that one word. I'm not taking a photography class this semester, so I've been itching to take my camera out and capture more of daily life - to search for and follow the sunshine. The beauty in each day.
I'm not holding myself to the photo-a-day aspect as I know things will get crazy and I will rush and run and miss some days. But what photos I do capture, I may share on here with the words that accompany them.
What is your word for today?
