Meters

Towards My Dreams

You know how sometimes you get stuck in a bit of a rut and find yourself just going through the motions – putting one foot in front of the other?

I knew I needed to get a picture for the 365 Project Photography challenge but for the life of me I couldn’t seem to find a single shot that made me want to bother with even the effort of clicking the shutter.

I stood there staring at the parts inside the electric meters going around and around. No emotions or thoughts it just keeps on turning 24/7 regardless of what is going on around it. Yeah, a full-fledged power outage would stop it, but not much else.

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” – Albert Einstein (attributed)

I don’t want to be like that meter.

I want to live.

I want to feel.

When you follow your dreams, you create a new world for yourself and bring others along for the ride. Your destiny awaits you; skip towards it.” – Jayme Barrett

I want to skip towards my dreams…

    Huh. Not many people would’ve put a picture of standard ole’ electric usage meters to such use making such an extraordinary comment on life, Cricket. You’ve got an amazingly brilliant creative side. It’s not the first time I’ve seen it, but it’s the first time I’ve been pulled to comment on it. I mean, it’s like I’d imagine the sensation is standing in the Louvre, looking at one of the great creations of our time, thinking, “holy shit, how’d the artist do that?”

      You have no idea how much that means to me – especially coming from you. Sometimes my brain takes off on its own little journey, with or without me. 🙂
