Wisdom sometimes appears in the most unlikely of places.

It appeared last night for me in the voice of Shawn Spencer, Psychic Detective with the Santa Barbara Police Department.

“Take pictures of moments,” he said to Juliet. “That’s what matters. Capture them here and hold onto them here.”

He pointed first to his head then to his heart.*

When we flip through old photo albums–or through digital images on our camera phones–the pictures that draw our attention aren’t those of buildings and landscapes, but of people.

Of people we love. People we share our lives with. People we want to hold close.

Here are a few of my “pictures of moments.”
