So, as it goes, I am making my own rules up to Paint With Me Thursdays. Heather has a good thing going. Technically, this was supposed to get me artsy with brush or pencil or pen or paper or crayon or whathaveyou. I liked that idea. I STILL like that idea, and I want to be a part of the group, but photos suit me better. I am discovering in my life that much of my stress is self-induced: high expectations of what I can do, should do and have time for. One of my favorite things about myself is my desire to learn and try and do different things, but it is my curse. Instead of pouring passion into one thing, honing it and excelling at it, I have a tendency to dabble. A little of this, a little of that, juggling it all right into mediocrity. And, while I may not be able to give up knitting to be an excellent seamstress or sacrifice gardening to be a better housekeeper or stop desiring to learn to crochet and play the guitar because I already have too many half learned skills, right here I am putting my foot down. I'm going to focus on taking pictures. So excuse that this isn't exactly a photography group and allow me this honing indulgence.
