Has this ever happened to you?

You're curled up on the couch, 
enjoying a book with words that don't rhyme.

Warm cup of coffee in your hand.

Kids playing together peacefully,
birds chirping in the trees,

all is right with the world.

You notice the sun streaming in through the window, 
and then you see this.


Dust particles.

Floating everywhere.

And you remember,   
Oh yes. That's right.
That dust is floating around us all the time.
We just don't see it unless it reflects the light.
Lovely.
Peaceful moment ruined.

But then you grab your camera and realize you can capture that dust
if you shoot from the right angle.
And that's pretty cool.
Game on.
Back to the book and coffee and ignorant bliss.

Isn't it the best when your kids see it too and they try to catch it? Mine do that. It's fun to watch because they look so silly doing it. Great picture too.
