A Sunrise Over the Pine Trees and Cranberry Bogs

Driving home from a night out on the town in the city, it was a chilly morning. I drove down the partially paved road on my way to my cottage house at 5.a.m in the morning, and I was caught in the  moment just as the sun came up.

I didn’t have my camera on me, but I stopped my car and whipped out my cell phone to take a couple pictures. That’s the good thing about having spur-of-the-moment technology. Spur-of-the-moment technology is my definition of technology you can take anywhere with you that works instantly.

Life has so many unexpected instances. Having the power to capture and share it to the world is a marvel because we can learn from it by seeing things we normally wouldn’t.

A famous writer back in the 1800’s named Henry David Thoreau wrote about his thoughts and experiences about nature at a time when cell phones and other technologies were not really around. All he had then was writing, which was the only way for him to widely share his natural experiences. Writing is one technology that still hasn’t died out.

“Every creature is better alive than dead, men and moose and pine trees, and he who understands it aright will rather preserve its life than destroy it.” – Henry David Thoreau
