13/365 A Diversion

"What Do These Things Have In Common?"

Today's official prompt was " a stranger's smile."  As you can see, that is not what I photographed.

Weber is having his first ever colonoscopy tomorrow.  Thus, we were at home today.  Everyone says that the prep is the worst part.  So far, he says that it has not been too bad; he is about done drinking 'that stuff" so the fact that he is doing this well is a good sign.

The Capture Your 365 project is intended to help us document our everyday lives.  The prompts are wonderful suggestions and help to give variety and spark creativity in the daily shots.  Sometimes, because of what and where life is on a given day, it just isn't possible to follow the prompt.  There were no strangers in our life today and not too many smiles.  That's OK.  The picture I took is the picture of our day today.

I have always been one of those people that follows, and believes others should too, the rules down to the last dot.  Most of the time, that is not a bad thing, but there are instances where it can lead at best to frustration and at worst to madness.  It was an important step for me to give myself permission to deviate this far from today's given prompt.  I have learned an important lesson; sometimes the best you can do, even if it is not perfect, is better than good enough.
