How do you tackle life?
I wrote this blog a few days before I learned of the death of Steve Jobs who was the 21st century version of Leonardo da Vinci, Benjamin Franklin or Thomas Edison. This post is dedicated to his memory as he makes his transition into the ether. It is remarkable the incredible impact of his 56 years on this planet.
Of the many infamous quotes, my favorite thing about Steve Jobs is the quote that goes something like:
"Remembering that I'll be dead soon has always helped me make the
big choices in life.
Your time is limited so don't waste it living someone else's life. Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. We are all going to die so why fear failure?
Live your own life"
What do you do to grab the moment and live in the now; not the later. How do you live your life not the life others want for you?
As I wandered around Wrightsville Beach last Sunday, I needed to take photographs of things. Like oxygen, I needed to see the world a new and capture it with a camera in order to breathe in the ocean air. I thinking taking photographs, like cooking is just something I have to do.
I have taken this walk on Wrightsville Beach countless times and every journey is different. I love to look from my perspective- low or high- up close or at a distance. Seeing, snapping and savoring moments along the walk. I wanted to see things with fresh eyes and to focus on what was right in front of me. I love to watch the changing landscape unfold as the waves dance in and out. I am happy in this world
Writing in the Sand
There is a calligraphy in the sand from the roots, the seaweed and bits of ocean debris. I don't know what it says, or what it is trying to tell me but it's beauty is indisputable.
And when you are ready to move on...please enter that special room that allows change to occur.
Change is good. Make room for it.
