    It was insightful and where I am heading thought wise. Nice to have validation. After being a stay at home mom for 20 years I am busy AND detailed orientated then my personality kicks in. Slowing down was a luxury. As of late I’ve been trying to find some good reading about being “present.” This concept seem to be lost on me. But I do feel at this point in my life that I have changed and a fresh version of myself is developing.

      Hi Marcy
      It is hard to clear your mind after much time without trying to. But it is achievable. Slowing down is not necessarily the answer. It is more a matter of just being in the moment. Can you allow yourself to just observe your surroundings without judgement or feeling? To simply look without needing an answer. Open your self up to the possibility you will find smaller worlds and larger ones in the space you are currently in. If this seems esoteric, it’s not, just look at children play; there is no past or future thoughts interfering with their present moment – time has little meaning and passes by without notice. You must be curious and open…

    The other day, I took a walk around my yard with my camera. Flowers’ waning blooms, bugs hopping, dragonflies flighty, bees scrambling from flower to flower.. I managed to get some decent flower shots. Them being the one subjects that sat still for me long enough. I am in transition from a APS-C sensor to Full Frame and my lenses are limited right now. I am torn by all the choices I have for a good Macro lens. Times are limiting too, but I can explore in my own back yard. It was inspiring and invigorating to loose myself through my 50mm lens. I didn’t spend as much time as I liked to, but it was enough for me to step out of daily doldrums for a while. My camera taking me on a little creative journey…

    Your ‘simple yet powerful’ article couldn’t have come to my inbox in a more appropriate time! Thank you.
