We did it. We braved the big, bad city of New York all on our own. Momma Bear and her two crazy girls in tow.
I realized something on Friday as I woke up to rain and the idea of being cooped up inside was not one I was willing to face… I realized that I can do ANYTHING I damn well put my mind to.. even just the seemingly small task of taking two suburban kids- who don’t get the idea of “stay close to mommy” so quickly and spend the day out and about in one of my favorite places on earth. So I packed up my shit, texted one of our family besties’s and we made plans to meet up in NYC at some point that day. But before I left I posted in my FB group a challenge for the day. To spend the day capturing the details. To see the moment with finite eyes.
I’ll admit. I struggled a bit at first.
I did not have the comfort of my own home to look for those details I often would rely on for memory making… I started to notice early on in the day that I was pigeonholing myself into what I thought had to make something a detail. I realized for me, in this day the details were not JUST about what you’d THINK a “small detail” would or should be..
It was about more. The action, the freedom, the excitement, the energy of the city. It was a detail in and of itself.
Does any of this makes sense even?! How can a small detail NOT be a small detail, but still be a small detail…?! Well, it can.. see.
