This photo was taken on February 13, 2016, at 7:28 AM.
The location was in the lobby of a very nice hotel on Capital Hill in Washington DC.
The "Take It!" came as I walked very carefully across the richly grained marble floor of this hotel that I had walked into countless times before. The extra care came from it being below freezing outside with wind blowing and a light snow on the ground, making my rubber soled shoes a bit less sure in how they came to grips with the smooth, polished, marble surface. My visual focus was with each step, thus a more keen set of eyes was at work.
This heart showed itself, with its bits of trailing ribbons, on the day before Valentine's Day. A more fitting find, I have never experienced.
The After Take: Is one that I am still trying to get my head around, but am overjoyed in being able to share this happy photo with you.
I am in hopes that each of you has someone you will reach out to, on this very special day, and let them know, you love them.
All my best,
