what's gotten into me?

Not really sure why, but lately I feel like I have been stopping to smell the roses.... often. I don't know if it is because the summer air is finally here, or if it is because I just returned from the most amazing trip ever? Maybe it's the books I'm reading for fun, or it is maybe because I don't have the huge weight of my dissertation on my shoulders? I can't pinpoint it, I just know that I am really enjoying it. I feel compelled to bring my camera EVERYWHERE. I'm taking pictures while I'm driving 70 mph.... (see below). I'm taking pictures when I'm laying in a field..... (see further below).... and totally loving it. The pictures are nothing special, but when I take them I feel this rush of life. Can't explain it. Actually, maybe I can. You know when you are so busy feeling things? really feeling them with your senses.. smell, visual, touch? My senses are ultra sensitive lately. Maybe it's the motorcycle? I guess I'll stop thinking about it and enjoy it while I can. So glad summer is here.
Carpe Diem!
