The Perks of a Life Without Pictures

Some time ago, I woke up a little earlier than usual. I went to the kitchen and when I was coming back to my room, I couldn’t help but notice the break of dawn out of my window and for a second I froze and stand there, mesmerized. The room was in complete silence and, for a moment, I felt incredibly lucky. It was amazing how such a simple moment could make me feel such strong emotions.

I felt amazing, but just for a second. Soon I went for my smart phone to take a picture. It took me a few seconds, I had to find a great angle and then add the perfect filter and finally, the hashtags. I uploaded the picture and then send it to some friends. I wanted that everybody could see what I was seeing, and hopefully, could feel at least something somehow similar.

By the time I looked back up, the beautiful dawn was just another sunny day. Beautiful nevertheless, but not quite as magical.
