How many people these days are content with simply being in the presence of the moment? Decades of connecting, capturing "the moment" in film (now pixels), is ingrained in the people. It takes courage these days to trust ourselves to remember a moment, let alone hear a story.
I've never been much of a picture taker. Although I carry around a camera, I forget to take it out at "opportune" moments because I'm too caught up in the seeing.
I'm okay with that.
