hills

It seems fun but where is the fun in photographing everything you do, I try but I get so bored of me, so I photograph our food, now that is boring too. We want to document, we need to document, we grew up being documented. What to do? First off I am the most disorganized that you will ever come across. Scrapbooks are a thing of the past. I didnt make any so I try along the way 'electronically'. Scrapbooking? Philosophy? Self realization? Personal journies? I'm in it for life. Zen teaching tells me that with every hill you come across you climb the one in front of you because that is your hill and not only do you climb the hill you climb the hill happily for two of reasons: happy that you can climb a hill, happy that you have a hill to climb. Sometimes it is a lot of little hills sometimes it seems like one huge hill with little hills in between but imagine a life with no hills, whats the point? Hill free. Even more boring is having no hills to climb. So what ever little 'bumps' in the road come along be happy because those are your bumps, but dont forget to keep on climbing your hill, it is your hill -after all - and take pictures along the way.

“Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.”

~John Lubbock

And you, my dear, will never, could never be boring. No. Matter. What.

Always carry your camera. There are adventures around every corner (and over every hill). It's fun to share what you see!

organization is subject to interpretation. it's what makes sense to you. it's good that you make the time to chronical your days. boring is also subject to interpretation. creative people always get bored. then something new exposes itself
