I want to spend more of my time writing . . .
I am finding that the best way to learn to write better is by spending more time writing. I think it may help me to come up with a list of topics that I find interesting, and just start writing. Involving all of you in this project might be fun. Perhaps I could post a picture and ask people to write a short story or poem about their interpretation of the photo. What do you think?
I want to spend more of my time taking pictures . . .
The more I learn about photography, the more I realize how much I have to learn. I have been absolutely obsessed with researching ways to take pictures that truly capture the feeling that I see when I am looking at a scene. I enjoy seeing the photos that other people take, especially when they tell a little story about the picture too. I would love to see some of yours!
I want to spend more quality with my daughter . . .
Haley is growing up so fast that it is almost scary. It seems like yesterday she was just a toddler, and all of the sudden she is twelve years old, going on thirty! I have some road trips planned to discover more scenic photo opportunities. After talking with her about it, I am seeing it would be a great thing for the two of us to do together. What ways have you found to spend more quality time with your children?
I want to focus on living a healthier lifestyle . . .
One thing I have noticed about reaching my mid forties is that my body is not nearly as forgiving as it used to be. In my twenties I could eat junk and survive on just a few hours sleep a night. These days my body creaks and groans if I don’t treat it right, and gravity seems to be moving things around! Okay, I know I cannot change fortysome years of bad habits over night, but I bet I can work on things one tiny step at a time! How about you? Has this become more important to you?
Above all, I want to continue to enjoy every moment I am given!
