But I would settle for a really good camera that took pictures of the world exactly as my eyes see it. Some kind of implant that would allow me to just focus on something and snap a permanent picture. You see, I'm camera-feeble. I know how they work, but I just can't seem to get them to work the way that I want them to work. Or I run into something that I would love to snap a picture of, but the only thing on me is my cell phone. And cameras on cell phones are handy, but they don't take very good pictures.
Case in point.
Yesterday we had a beautiful, warm Autumn evening. We were staying home, as I mentioned on Thursday, and I was watching a random movie or TV show. I noticed around 10:30PM how warm and bright out it was, so I went outside. A beautiful full moon instantly greeted me, high in the sky. I knew that I just had to take a walk.
So I threw on some sandals and took a walk over the the bridge by our home that separates the upper and lower parts of the harbor. And if you could have seen what I saw...well, I'm not sure there are enough words or the right words to describe the beauty.
There were some big, fluffy clouds racing across the sky, occasionally obscuring the Moon. But when it was out and shining brightly, the scene over the harbor was amazing. There were more swans on the water than I have ever seen. It was like something out of a painting. And the detail, thanks to the brightly-lit moon, was outstanding. Everything was so crisp and clear and blue and white and....well, you get the picture.
And I'd love to share that particular scene with you, but technology has let me down again.
I need one of those ocular implanted, mind-activated, impossibly perfect cameras that haven't been invented yet.
