Saturday early start

Sometimes the pain is productive. Had to rise early to stretch out and try to get comfortable again. Once that was accomplished I was wide awake and it was 3:30 am. I guess that is a good start for the new month.

That peaceful easy feeling. That is what I’m looking for this month. It’s good to have goals.

I hope to start off the month strong. I have several goals in addition to the one stated above. For instance, I want to get from 1 to several quality images each day. I’d like to upload 100 images to my Zenfolio site a day from past shoots. Also, spend some more time organizing and labeling there.

Maybe I’ll challenge myself to do more people shooting which has always been an issue for me. I also feel I’ve gotten stagnant creatively. That I also need to cure. Another goal is to finish 2 woodworking pieces I started for my son and granddaughter a while ago but I haven’t wrapped up.

So here’s to a good month ahead.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Wouldn’t it be nice if we all could celebrate Independence Day together instead of being divided?
  • OK, I’ve had enough of the rain. I’d like to place my order for SUN, please.
  • The more you pay attention the more in focus things become.
