Photo 101: Connecting

This one for me was easy. Connecting. We don’t even realize how often we are reaching out to others or how we are doing it really … until we can no longer go about our “normal” daily lives.

Our little community was almost completely shut down by our recent winter storms. At one count almost half of our town’s population and most of the businesses were without power. No heat. No television. No land lines. No internet. Limited travel. Eventually, they got all of our electric restored. For some, it was a matter of minutes and for others it was a couple of weeks. Even when we got our power back, our internet was not working. Another 3 days for that. You don’t realize how many times you want to connect with someone by facebook or e-mail, to sit down and connect to the world through your blog, or to drive to a store or restaurant to meet friends. I mean, you can only take so much silent family togetherness. (Joking!) I cannot tell you how many people felt like the power could be restored with the flip of a switch. But, those of us that were out & about saw how diligently these guys were working and the ton of crew it took to give us back our comfort, our connections.

These connections do come at a price. That price varies by person. By situation. For me, I notice it when I see that perfect photo. I am focusing my eyes & my camera on that desired view, sometimes not realizing what I did not see. Electric lines, Cable lines. Telephone lines. Our connections.


They are everywhere!


About nonnymoose2014

I have recently retired from the healthcare field, nursing. As I try to figure out what I want to be when I grow up, this seemed like the perfect time to try my hand at blogging again. In the past, my success (or lack thereof) I believe hinged on my fear of revealing too much about myself. I have a desire to “put it all out there” BUT I want to do it on my own terms … anonymously! Thus came Nonny Moose.
