Take It Out and Frame It

Added on by Sam Davidson.

A new friend and I were chatting last week. She was talking about art. The conversation went to photographs. Then memories and moments.

She says that when she finds a great picture in a book, she takes it out and frames it. Cut up the book. Slap the image in a frame and that way you can be inspired or touched each time you pass it. You can’t do this when the book is closed and sitting on a shelf.

The same goes for moments. Shared conversations. Eye contact. Spontaneous plans in a big city at 1 AM.

If you could frame a moment, it would be those. No need for pictures. Just keep it in your heart, assuming you look there most often.
