Dreamboat

I know everything happens for a reason is trite and not universally applicable. But, for the most part, I like it. Why not believe whatever life throws my way is a catalyst to understanding something else?

Like my camera broke and I was twitchy and sad and then felt lame for it affecting me so when clearly a camera isn't a vital-to-life item and then whatever-stop-making-it-so-heavy because clearly there are many things that aren't vital-to-life that we all enjoy and, damnit, I am allowed to miss my camera.

I couldn't afford a new one so I lassoed calm and sat with it. Perhaps someone would stumble into my garage and see my parents' record collection (that I totally had to have even though it has been encased in Rubbermaids for more than a decade) and say Gee, I really want that vinyl. Name your price. Or maybe I would be without a camera and channel my creative energy in another direction. Or would my local electronics store accept my proposal for a partnership and give me my Dreamboat? I didn't know. But I do know it always works out.  It may not be as tidy or obvious as I would like but I believe stuff aligns when and how it needs to.

I am kind of freaking out at how this all aligned. Behold, Dreamboat.

Kismet. Happy for you.

clove's corner said...

Awe, yeah. I *knew* it would happen. Nice work, mama.

I have a Rebel, would love to learn what the day-to-day differences are between a Rebel and the 60D...from your perspective.

And on another random note, I read "Good Night, Sleep Tight" and we had our first night of sleep training last night, and...it went shockingly well! We'll see what tonight brings.... Thanks for the book recommend.

hiphiphooray!
sometimes just making sure that your camera is there ... inyourhands ... makes everything all right in the world.

Claire @ Scissors Paper Rock said...

YAY!!!
And so true...I think things align when they're meant to...in one way or another!
Enjoy! xo
