"Life is a river, that's what granddad always used to say. A beginning an end and a million different ways in between. He used the metaphor my whole life, how it ebbed and flowed, following the path of least resistance barreling straight through the impossible. Clear as air and black as night. But no matter what the ration or how it moved or what it looked like, the point, according to granddad was that it always moved forward.
What kept him running the rapids until he was old and grey? The mystery of what lay around the bend."
It's a long video, but worth the watch (in HD).
I dreamt I lost my camera and 3 lens last night (I only have 2 in real life). Sad. They were taken away in a flood so even if I happened to find them, they
probably definitely would have been ruined. Dreams can be silly but all morning I have been thinking of my camera and how I need to take it out (gently) and go take some pictures. It's been a while since I've taken any photos with it and let's be honest, the iPhone can only cut it for so long. So maybe if I study enough to deserve a self imposed reward today and it is still light out, I will go snap some pictures.
This thing is amazing. Joe ordered it as a Christmas gift for me and it was back ordered forever so I just got it today. When it says macro, it means serious business macro. It is SO cool and unbelievable you can do this with your phone. I'm supposed to be putting some serious study time in today, but needless to say I am also wandering around looking for things to take pictures of.
Well I made it through January. That's a good sign, right?
I must admit I am partial to this month. It holds my birthday, Valentine's Day, it hold the promise that winter is winding down. Never mind that we will have snow and cold weather until early May. We are on the downward swing, people (or is it upward swing?). It's a good sign. February is a good month.
