I am a Hot Mess. Skip this link (but continue reading!) if you are offended by Family Guy: quote from Glen Quagmire, but it’s what I was reminded of this morning while brainstorming a name for this post.
I find myself in a predicament of my own creation, with a million things on my plate. I am fully aware that I brought it all on myself, but what is the alternative? Crawl into the fetal position? Everything in me wants to go back to bed, hoping for a do-over. Instead, I guzzle caffeine, solidifying my intention to muscle through the day.
Join me in the madness for a moment:
I am currently reading four books. Two on photography, one is a bible study. The other one is the first Harry Potter book. I am a tad ashamed to admit I haven’t read any of them. Always wanted to, but just never did… Don’t judge.
So. I got a really nice DSLR a couple of years ago, and up until now I have been content to treat it like a point-and-shoot camera. I get a lot of really great pictures, but lately I have been wanting to learn more about my camera. I have always enjoyed taking pictures (yes, I am and always have been the nerd with the camera at social outings), more for documentary purposes than anything else. I have only recently discovered the joy I get from the artistic possibilities held within each picture I take. I am reading books (Scott Kelby’s Digital Photography Boxed Set and Understanding Exposure by Scott Peterson) about how to get the most from my camera and tutorials online about the magic of Photoshop. Photography has become something that I indulge in that makes me feel more like Me.
5 Look at the nations and watch and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you were told.
Who can fathom the Spirit of the LORD, or instruct the LORD as His counselor?
