I have addictions to really odd things. For example, I can eat a box of hot tamales in about an hour. Sure…my mouth kind of burns and it’s sugar overload after I’m done but it became apparent to me that I can no longer eat even one hot tamale.
Lately, I’ve been addicted to cleaning…and organizing. This is something that makes my sister…and my mother…and the rest of the family for that matter just jump for joy and at the same time shake their heads with the time it has taken for this addiction to take root. I was also the girl who had piles of things laying around all the time, everywhere. I knew exactly where everything was…or so I claimed. I must say, the organization bug is an addiction I’m not too keen on giving up any time soon.
And then there is my biggest addiction of all…
Ever since I learned that back lighting existed and that I could make the sun appear spiky, an addiction like no other has come over me. I beg to be able to take sun shots. I will stare directly into the sun for as long as it takes until I’m sure I’ve exhausted every photograph possible. Patrick swears I’ll be blind in no time.
The best part of the addiction is that I now see rays of light filtering through the trees in such a gorgeous and delicious way that it makes me want to jump for joy. It truly sends shivers all over me to see those beautiful sun rays drifting over a cloud.
So the other evening, I pulled out the trusty camera with some flowers that my hubby brought me home (isn’t he sweet?) and headed to my back porch. And aren’t I so lucky that the sun just happens to set so nicely there?
And here are the results…
So go and soak a little bit of sun
