one second a day. . .
My newest tiny obsession is LeapSecond an app that let’s you select one second a day and string them together into a video story. . . I started it with the idea of showing more of our everyday life here – glimpses of the things in the middle of the bigger moments – weather, scenery, laughter, a walk to work. I think it will do that, but more than that, it has shifted the way I see things.
I have started to recognize small but profound moments that had been escaping me every day. I have stopped to watch my daughter dance in the rain. I have seen the beauty in the tiny orchid caught by the breeze on the side of the road. I have looked at the world through my husband’s eyes intentionally, and searched for the small moments he has seen as well (He just did a beautiful post on small overlooked things in the hospital – from dings in the door to light through the windows).
I have seen the complexity and variation woven in each day from hour to hour – from basketball to the hospital, to quiet moments with friends with new appreciation. So, here is our one second a day from January 1st at midnight to now. . . 6 months of tiny memories that make up our lives here. . .
