Living Cameras

by Terry Young, RDC


 

Everyone is like a camera, each moment

recording everything material and spiritual 

through the five, perhaps six, maybe more senses. 

Colors, lights and shadows, textures, flavors, sounds, 

people, places, things, situations remain forever 

on a film of memory, conscious and unconscious.

-to be in good places, in good company, 

-to read and absorb beauty and truth,

-to record the best of all things, 

within the heart and mind 

is the purpose and the process 

of becoming fully alive and free!
