First of all, prayers to all in the Houston, Texas coast and Louisiana coast. Recovery is going to take a long time, and it will need the contribution, in some way, of every American.
It will also need creativity.
Speared by a free pass into the Canadian parks (Happy 150th Canada!), my DH and I just returned from a week of camping in Banff Park, Canada. There were some interesting times. No one warned us that the train ran all night about 200 yards from the campground. Because of our late reservations, we had to switch sites. Neighbors stared as we calmly walked our fully erected tent down the road.
Why take it down? With a little bit of creativity, we could make our lives easier and provide entertainment at the same time.
Smoke from the fires in an adjoining national forest as well as clouds, made visibility hazy. We could see the mountains, but not with the crispness they often have against a blue sky. We’re both ardent picture takers, but knew we weren’t getting the shots we wanted.
If far off shots didn’t work, what about close ups? We sat by the edge of one of the Vermilion Lakes. He took about 100 pictures of dragonflies, and I sketched the scene. We captured our moments, which is the point of taking photos after all, and have a stellar memory.
How can you use your creativity today?
