A Meditative Walkabout, In Pictures

Today was freaking beautiful in St. Paul, MN and I decided to go on a walkabout with my camera, sort of as an exercise in meditation and attempting to be very “present” in the world around me. Not only does paying attention pay off when you’re trying to describe a scene in fiction it reminds you how transient life truly is-we’re here for a brief time and then we’re gone.

Walking around, I realized how odd someone who is truly paying attention to their environment is to other people, almost dangerous. We’re used to cameras these days but not being fully perceived and appreciated.
