Today’s prompt from www.reverb10.com asks me to write about a moment from this past year during which I felt most alive.
I’m going to say it was the day I took this picture.
My family was gathered together for the “August Birthday Party,” which is for my dad, two of my brothers, one of my sisters, and a niece, all of whom have August birthdays. We have this party every year. My brothers grill. We set a long table of food out in the back yard. Children and dogs alike steal cookies and run around like wild things.
This year we brought out the Slip ‘n Slide. A good time was had by all. I also had a brand new telephoto lens for my camera, so I got a close up view to the excitement without actually getting wet. The best of both worlds.
That’s how I managed to take this.
Now that’s living.
