She Dreamed She Was a Flower - Photo by Meredith Eastwood

Recently when I was in Hawaii, staying in a “treehouse,” there were two accessible outlets in my room.  I would unplug the lamp in order to charge the battery on my camera.

One afternoon while walking down a lovely path dense with tropical foliage, I discovered this gorgeous bloom. I clicked and immediately my battery was out of juice. I rushed back to my room to charge the battery and download the image.

Lesson learned: Keep my battery charged for good shots at life’s beauty.
