Thursday’s Special: Minuscule

This challenge has a real life tie-in for me. As I have been looking for part-time work, because my wife is a full-time nursing student, I have been hyper-aware of the “small stuff”. This week I filled out an application and turned it in but the pen I choose was leaving little drops of wet ink as I wrote. To someone else this may not have been an issue but to me it was. Or put another way: to some one else it was a small thing , a minuscule detail of no import. To me: Lack of detail, sloppiness and not putting my best foot forward.Since I feel Paula’s spirit of graciousness does not sweat the small stuff here is my Thursday’s Special: Minuscule.

Besides my wedding band this is my favorite ring. I wear it every day new and have for the best part of the last two decades. It has wear marks, scratches and imperfections in the Blood Stone the eye cannot really see. That is why I like photographing it in macro and seeing the miniscule markings that time has left on this ring. Kind of like life, no?

  1. This is wonderful. Macro lets us see all the details we would otherwise miss. I hope you find the part-time job you wish for, John. Thank you for sharing such an intimate part of you 🙂
