The magic hour.
There’s just something about the sky that never fails to amaze me with all its vastness and glory. I just simply have this uncanny adoration for the sky.
There was a time when I realized that I have lived long enough and never really had the chance to appreciate the sky. I have simply taken the sky for granted. I mean, it’s always there, so what makes it so special that I have to allocate time just to adore it?
Then life, as we know it, happens. The trials of everyday life sometimes takes us to undesirable places, places where no lights are lit, places with no lights to guide us home. So as a result, we find alternatives to keep us distracted until we can, once again, find the light. So I got interested in taking photos. It just gives me a moment of peace and serenity whenever I take photos of everything and anything. And so I started paying attention to what I see. And most of the time, what I take time to see, amazes me. When I started paying attention, I find myself looking up most often. I guess this is where my fascination towards the sky started to develop.
After all the traveling from one destination towards the other, I realized that the sky may change in color, some clearer than the others while some much more cloudy, but from wherever I am, it will always be the same one I see back at home. You know things change, people change, even “we” change, and sometimes it’s hard to keep track of all the progress, but at least now I know that some things actually stay the same. That it’s possible. The sky may vary every now and then, but I know that it’s the same sky that I always look up to. The same sky that makes me feel that everything’s okay.
And that gives me hope. To know that I could always look up even when the weight of the world seems too heavy to carry.
Maybe this is just me, but I hope you could try it. Look up at the sky, and maybe, you’ll have a better day, and maybe, you’ll feel alright. We’re all living under the same sky, maybe we shouldn’t waste time by looking down when we could always look up? The sky is amazing, don’t you agree?
