X Marks the Spot

X marks a treasure.

As kids, we loved making fake treasure maps.  We’d burn the edges, and our fingers, to make the map look old.  We’d draw a few landmarks from the yard and then an X where the treasure would be.  Sometimes, we might even bury a treasure for each other. 

X marks a man.

In the days with more illiteracy, an X was accepted on documents, signifying the consent of an adult unable to sign their name.

X marks the sun.  It was an amazing pic and make me thankful I always carry my camera in my purse.  With a flick of the lens caps and a click of an itchy trigger finger, my memory was captured forever.

This is what I really saw

as my heart burned within me and

Creation preached to my soul.

      Thanks! One of those moments I was thankful I lug my huge camera around all the time.
