how i remember

valentinevalentine {iphone4} showcased in Life in Lofi 


this is how i remember… and why i document with photography.

the day: epic
the moment: fleeting

the bedspread, the new sheets
my need to start over
a do-over

this is the letting go
the letting in
the seeing

the remembering i’m still right here,
even when pieces of me are out in the world

and so this is born: this image.
and it gives me new eyes.

it’s a note to self:
to stop and smell the flowers
to let the stress release its grip from my neck
to feel the wind in my hair
and the sun on my skin
even if only in my imagination.

this is how i remember.
