“The photograph is an undeniably powerful medium. Free from the constraints of language, and harnessing the unique qualities of a single moment frozen in time.” Steve McCurry
Weeks later, @lisafield12 captured this photo of my bed, exactly as I had left it in the moment I jumped up at 2:47 am on January 9 when the mudslides were tearing through Montecito. I moved about my home in a frenzy before leaving when I heard the slides, but the scene in and around my bed remained untouched. It was surreal to return to signs of the flu and the surprise suspended in time.
