Desaturate

I'm always pushing myself.  I always want to be better, try harder, to learn more.  Having this trait works because it makes me stronger, smarter (I think), more resilient and it helps me to deal with what I might see as a personal failure or a disappointment whether it is real or imagined.  It also helps me because in a way it forces me to take a moment for myself, to step back and appreciate things.  I tend to be my own worst enemy and biggest critic so this is an exercise that I absolutely have to practice.  When I shut off all the noise, take a minute and imagine things stripped down to their most basic details...well, this is what makes life exciting, beautiful, interesting and full of wonder, and, I think that's pretty powerful.

Gorgeous words and i love the essence of this message- love life and the most basic things in it.
You are a gifted photographer my dear and I wish that I could have a fraction of your talent some day! When we meet up some time I may be tempted to bring my camera!
