2012.08.03 What we see is what we are

And what I am is unsettled.
I love my "take it with me everywhere" Canon point-and-shoot.

“There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your
photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.”
Ernst Haas

A dilemma . . .
I love taking photos and processing them.
I love blogging what I've created.
These things relax me, I lose my sense of time while creating.

But, when there are many other things to be done,
whether work, church, volunteer, family, or fun
or all these seemingly at once . . .
what used to relax me
becomes a chore.
And I feel I'm letting myself down.

Luckily, I'm old enough to know that this dilemma will soon pass :)
And, so I wait . . . and work and volunteer and help others first.
Because, after all, that is the point . . .
to put others' needs before mine.
And to do it cheerfully.
