2/365 - 2 Goals

"Embracing the Muse"

In the past few years I have discovered a lot about myself,  some good things and some not so good things.  I have learned to embrace who I am and be the best that I can be by honoring both my strengths and my weaknesses.  Doing so has equipped me to extend the same love and respect toward others.  When you can love yourself despite shortcomings, it is much easier to love others despite your own perceived imperfections.

We tend to focus on our own imperfections when it comes to making New Year's resolutions or setting goals for the coming year.  I don't want to focus on such things; therefore, I don't make true resolutions.  I am more interested in focusing on the mystery, the unknown, the possible.  I know there is still much for me to learn about myself, others and the world.  And as I do, new challenges and opportunities will appear before me.  My intent this year is to be open to all that presents itself, to make wise choices and to honor all those with whom my path crosses.

Part of my intentional self discovery is to grow into my own photographic style.  I wish for a look that is like the sound of Debussy - it is almost impossible to confuse a piece of music by Debussy with any other composer.  I trust that the muse will lead me in the right direction as long as I remain open and willing to follow.
