My October Sky by Megan

One of my favorite song lyrics comes from Ani DiFranco:
...when I look down,
I just miss all the good stuff.
And when I look up,
I just trip over things
.

On Wednesday October 2nd, 2013, I decided to risk tripping in hopes of seeing the good stuff. As I went around my daily routine, I paused to look up at the sky. This started as a way to fulfill the creative assignment for October, but proved to be an exercise in mindfulness.

Here are a few pictures that capture what I saw.

Biddeford, ME 10:30 am
 Stopped at a traffic light, driving from the YMCA, where I swam laps, to the Kennebunk Town Offices to pay property taxes.



Kennebunk, ME 11:15 am
On the way into the Kennebunk Free Library. Unfortunately I forgot the library doesn't open until 12:30 on Wednesdays.


Kennebunk, ME 12:45 pm
At the playground. My kids and I had a picnic lunch after my son's preschool.



West Kennebunk, ME 1:30 pm
Work time. The view of the sky from my office window. The writing was not the best today, but at least there was writing.


Mother's Beach, Kennebunk, ME 5:00 pm
 Our family welcomes this extra beach day in October.


West Kennebunk, ME 8:00 pm
The kids are in bed, back to work.
