As of late, I have this habit of looking at the greater message the pictures on my phone tells. Where it has been the last few days, weeks and months. What story does it tell and how can I improve it. Who are in them, what is busy happening, where were they taken and how often does the environment change. Is it telling a story which is improving, staying the same or deteriorating? Are there new "actors" in them than a year ago or are the characters the same? How many are "good guys" in the story and what role do all the others fill in the story.
Some of my own pictures of late includes what can only be described as being in the presence of giants. Of people so amazing in their thinking and personality that they can only be seen as giants. Of mountains so big and vast they humble you, and yet at the same time, open your heart and mind to how big life can and should be. Of personalities so inspiring, you can't help but be influenced by them.
It is an essential part of life, to be reminded of the small space we occupy in the world. It is the only way you will know, have the drive and urge to make life as big as possible. That your protected world you create in your everyday life is not the flesh of who you need to limit yourself to.
Without it, a reminder every now and again, the perspective is lost. To wonder is not the act of being lost in life, it is about preventing life from shrinking around you. Time is so precious and gets lost so quick, waiting till tomorrow to go forth and live is too late.
It is up to you to make it happen. To constantly put yourself in the presence of giants.
