Master Frodo, you will have both friends and allies on this quest. Some who you would expect, whilst others you will find… surprising.
The task is to be looking for them, every moment of every day. Look deeply into the faces and the lives of those around you.
You will be surprised at the goodness you see under their masks.
As I said in my flickr description, I don’t have much of a signature style in my photography or my fashion. (Unless “frumpy” is signature.)
My non-alcoholic drink of choice is Diet Coke ™. My camera choice is Pentax. My Operating System, Linux.
But give me a good fountain pen and some choice paper… that’s a signature moment.
Sometimes it’s not a game. As I watch the Prime Minister’s response (or lack thereof) to the Idle No More movement, and the ongoing battle between the Ontario teachers federations and their provincial government, there are times it feels like people think life is a Zero-Sum game.
We need to be constantly working for Win-Win-Win.
Games can have winners and losers, because, in the end, it doesn’t really matter.
Life. It shouldn’t have winners and losers. Because, in the end… it does matter. A lot.
I’ve just started playing with off camera flash. I like the concept of HappyChild finding a portal when she opened the drawer, but I still need to work more on the execution. (And I’ve got to get newer batteries for my flash units. They conked out just when I was starting to get closer to what I was looking for!)
A rock. A surface. I’m sure there’s some important meaning there. #projectlife365 #simplicity
#projectlife365 #still_life I realized that the moment I pour myself a Coke, sit back & reflect on the day is my “still life”
In some ways, this feels like a snap, but then I look at the story in it. Wandering the trails, the light shining, friends watching… this year is going to be my year. Yours, too.
Sometimes, I’m a dreamer.
Sometimes, I’m a doer.
Sometimes, my dreams are as far away as the moon.
Sometimes, they’re only as far away as the moon.
and good endings make fertile what comes next.
The thing about resolutions is that they’re as much about old ways dying as they are about new ways growing.
So. This year, I will fertilize my new beginnings with good endings.
(And two of my 2013 hopes are to take photos and blog daily. We’ll see if Project Life 365 helps me get my creative juices flowing – and help me be accountable to my discipline.)
