Stephanie, the process you describe is strikingly similar to sensory awareness exercises I use in workshops on using sensory description in stories. You can't build this type of reader magnet into stories without personal awareness. That is, you can't write about what you aren't aware of. By stretching your perception, then weaving it into story, you expand reader awareness. Everyone benefits.

I love this, Stephanie, especially that you show how the iPhone/digital connection can lead to mindfulness, not away. I find the same thing, especially since I'm always looking for my one amazing shot of the day. Through that lens (no pun intended) I notice so much more - the birds perched in the tree that towers over the Panera patio where I ate dinner yesterday, for instance. Sometimes my cell phone feels like an anchor, but as with any tool, it's all in the use. Thanks for prompting me to think about this!
