I don’t know about all you, but I really needed this week’s challenge. I’ve been so swamped and overwhelmed with work. I’d think of all the things I have to accomplish in a day and waste two hours not being able to start any of it. But in a free moment, as I was snapping pictures for this challenge, I actually realized something.
Photos don’t work so well when all the elements are competing for attention. It’s busy and distracting and screws up the visual balance. The mental balance.
So what do you do? You take just one thing…
…and you focus on it.
You pay attention to what’s in front of you…
…and everything else just fades away.
And you just do that with everything, bit by bit…
Until you get to the last of it…
…and discover it was easier than you thought it’d be.
Then you can just have fun!
And you start running gleefully through the house, taking pictures of random shite.
Everything from statues…
To glass stemware.
Until everyone else wonders what the heck is wrong with you.
…Or…is that just me?
Seemed like a nice lesson for life anyway.
Psst!! My birthday’s coming up and this is what I want!
