A simple writing exercise: In a hundred words or less, snap a picture. Speed, observation; no insight, no emotion. Open the senses, let the words settle and the image tell. Just like a Polaroid, the image reappears, developed in this case by reading. Just like photography, some pictures are good, some not. Some pictures you keep, some you discard. Each, though, is a useful practice of awareness, perception.
