Part of me wants to do 365 project. Take photos every day. Never forget. But then sometimes a normal life gets repetitive. If I posted and took a photo a day, trying hard to see things a new way...it would challenge me.
I know making a commitment to taking photos at the Shelter of Adoptable dogs has helped me a lot. I am one of those people that learns as I do.
On the other hand, sometimes days go all wrong and there is nothing to describe them but a gray wall. I think I am seeing mild depression here. And I don't know why. i see it in my friends too. Is this a 60's issue? The age not the decade. Or maybe the decade..
I know by committing to Shelter photos, my own dogs see less personal time and training.
I know I am tired when the sun sets. I rarely take on parties or evening meetings or classes. This might be a leftover from Thyroid, adrenal things.
I also know that when I have a format and an animal that needs public exposure, I can edit really fast now. As long as it is before sundown. Then I slow down. But also, this is when I think.
I find Facebook so superficial. I share there sometimes, but not often. It is a decent french fry, but not a meal.
I truly relish time to read.
I am also slow at making decisions.
Maybe the challenge for me will be to take at least a photo a day and then somehow get to 365.
Still, no commitment.
What is this point where I stall? Is this an ego thing?
As a former antique dealer, I have always had a lot of stuff. Tomorrow I will take bags of stuff to the Salvation Army. Including the clothes I end of wearing but not liking.
It is a New year.
I like things simple. Tis a gift to be simple...to be free.
On the other hand, many of you know the high of a good photo. It takes some time to find those.
Well I have clarified nothing. But I have had a chance to mull it over with friends.
Maybe that is good enough.
