As I walked home from work today, with the sun shining in my face and a lovely view over the fairly near mountains I thought about my recent bird picture. (See fjupt.deviantart.com/art/Might… )
A picture like that is why I do Photographering... Not only because of the outcome of the picture, but also because of the feeling it leaves me with. Sneaking after a bird, not sure that you'll get a usable shot of it, holding your breath as it flies from the ground to the top of the wall... And there it was. The one usable shot I got of it, was the last one I took as well.
The thrill of the hunt along with the happiness of the accomplishment... That.. and that alone is why I take photos. It's those little things that just makes my day completely.. Seeing this bird yesterday and getting a good picture of it, made my day!
And today as I walked home from work, thinking about all of the above... I suddenly smelled freshly cut grass, which happened to be wet from the rain shower earlier... The smell of that, made me happy. I don't necessarily like the smell, but the feeling it gave me was great. Suddenly I think about yin&yang... And I started thinking about the grass as living people, the lawn mower would be death, coming to collect. But instead of focusing on the collected grass/lives.. I focused on the remaining grass/lives..
So for some reason the smell of freshly cut grass.. is one of the many smells of life there is.. (To me that is.. It's all individual)
Which brings me to the fact that I have ups and downs. And I'm writing this now, not only as a reminder to myself... but a reminder to the people reading my posts. Even though the anti depression medicine I take, don't keep away the darkness... Let this be a reminder that nor does it keep away the light!
yin&yang... “Accept your dark side, understanding it will help you to move with the light. Knowing both sides of our souls, helps us all to move forward in life and to understand that, perfection doesn't exist.” Quoted Martin R. Lemieux.
Draw your own conclusions about yin&yang.. but facts are that without black, there's no white. read: Without bad times, there's no good ones either.
