The morning after I returned from PEI, I opened my eyes to a benediction. My backyard was bathed in an otherworldly glow. The leaves, once a mere red and yellow, had become ruby and saffron jewels set in a flawless azure sky. It was breath-taking.
I considered getting up to take a photo, but I didn’t want to miss one moment and I wouldn’t have been able to capture it anyway.
A couple of days later, I went for a hike with a friend in Nose Hill Park. We crested a hill and both stopped in awe at the sight of the rolling landscape and the mountains in the distance. This time I did have my camera, but all I did was prove to myself that such views are uncapturable.
