Five Minute Friday: Close

(I participate with a group of writers in a weekly “Five Minute Friday” writing exercise. In response to a word prompt, each writer sits down for five minutes for “no extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.” This is also described as a sort of writing flash mob and a great form of “free therapy” )

Five Minute Friday: Close


I love those pictures that zoom in super close to ordinary items

The challenge is to guess what they show.

They generally show things we see each and every day.

But, of course, we see the broader image.

Not the up close detail.

Understanding the “big picture” is important of course.

We don’t want to get stuck down in the minutia.

But once in a while it sure is fun to take a closer look.

Very often we will find great beauty.

We may even better understand the full meaning of the “big picture” after getting close enough to see some small details.

    • Thanks, Amy! I read your post also. I can totally relate to what you wrote. My husband and I will have been married 20 years this December. A pastor told us before we got married that if we both kept moving closer to God, we would also keep moving closer together. I have found that to be true. Keep up your great writing as well! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by! What are your thoughts on this?
