Canon 50mm Lens

If you have been following this blog for a while now then you are well aware of the steady decline in content quality. I was aware too, and as Fred Jung played by the great Ray Liotta says it,

“Sometimes you’re flush & sometimes you’re bust, & when you’re up it is never as food as it seems, & when you’re down, you never think you’ll be up again, but life goes on”.

This encapsulates my relationship with creativity and the discipline required to perform. Creativity comes in seasons, waves, and fluctuates in intensity.

Fortunately, the tables have turned and I feel the inspiration rains coming down on my work yet again. Well, at least the tables have turned.

When I realized this downward decline I semi-spontaneously tried to resurrect myself, and the blog, by purchasing a Canon 50mm lens.

The images in this post have all been taken this week with the new lens. I am thoroughly enjoying this purchase and stoked about all the potential this investment has for the future. Life goes on, and so does the weekly blog, hope you enjoyed this week’s content!

Time

“It is not about having time, it is about making time.”

Quality time is the one and only way I truly feel connected to those in my life. My relationships have always revolved around a one-on-one connection and this approach has impacted relationships going into my adult life. I have had to evolve from a shy kid into a shy adult, and my fears of social anxiety have morphed into an elusive creature.

Making time can be the most genuine way to express your care for others. To be impeccable with your word and realistic with your time is not only a mature reflection of your personality, but it is also a way to hold yourself accountable. Committing to a timetable to create content for this blog is one example of how I practice this.

How many times have you said to yourself or someone else, “I am going to do that”? It is a life long practice and it will not always be easy, but I like to believe it will be worth it. Showing up, being present, and being sincere opens up a channel for love, and that energy goes both ways.
