changing, practicing, and pursuing a passion
feeling an increasing quiet,
an ongoing struggle
to pull out words
wondering and soul-searching
how this space,
this expression of self
has taken shape
and will evolve
as i continue to change
it feels good and right and even necessary
to follow my passion
to continue to capture and share images
of my world--
when truly moved or inspired
i guess i just needed to give myself the permission to do so
thanks for sharing the journey
So inspired with a Netflix documentary I found Sunday called Monk With a Camera . Extremely interesting for me, this rare combination of topics and passions, this thing I have for both photography and Buddhist monks.
Reminding me that if I want to become a really good photographer, as well as have a mindful life,
I must practice.
And just like a pianist must practice his scales every single day, it truly is essential that I take photos, open my eyes every single day. Have my camera always by my side. This film a gentle admonition and answer that no thing, no moment is too ordinary to see and to share.
Even if I don't have the words.
