May Day Photos and Learning My Limitations

I’ve been lagging on my blog and falling short of my goals. Time to get into gear, Sharon. No excuses. Just do it.

Today gave me a good reason to blog: some photos from a seminar I attended today.

Part of my problem is I am scattered. Unfocused. AADD. I love doing this; wait, there is a nice, new shiny thing to do. Let’s go there. I want to be a photographer on the scale of Annie Lebovitz; a writer like Mark Twain; a jewelery maker; a potter; a gardener; a glass artist; a weaver and knitter; an interior decorator; a master carpenter; a biologist; a bird watcher; an astrophysicist; and of course, a rock star (but I can’t sing or play an instrument).

Since semi-retirement, I think I have all the time in the world, but each day only holds 24 hours, and they really fill up quickly. I know, I “p’shawed” all those retirees before me who said that. But I am busier than ever. Again, I realize part of that is the AADD aspect of my personality.

Today was great. A nine-hour photography seminar. I loved it. It seemed like three hours. I want to continue to grow and be better at it. I need to stop letting all the other distractions get in my way. I learned a lot today and had the chance to briefly photograph two beautiful models.

Goal this weekend: practice, practice, and then practice again. Oh wait, there is something new and shiny over there.

  1. Sharon, loving all of the things that you love are precisely what make you so interesting. No matter what you are saying or looking at, those various interests of yours affect everything. You see things differently than a person with no outside interests would. Yours is a colorful, artistic, and passionate outlook on life. It translates into everything you do. Keep those creative juices flowing Ms. Blogger, and we bloggees will lap it right up because it is fun to read your words and to love the pictures you take. BTW, those models are beautiful! It appears that neither one of them has a ‘bad’ side, LOL. Onward and upward Sharon and good wishes that you are able to find the time to add a few of your other passions to your creativity. Good luck with your jewelry endeavor.
