At The River

You ever notice how busy you are. All The Time. I know I am. It seems like no matter how much I try, I am still busy, even when I am supposed to be relaxing or vacationing, I am cramming as much “fun” as I can into my time of relaxation that I never really have a period of not being busy.

Maybe it is just me, but it is just the way my brain works. I always have to have 100 projects going on, and feel like there is so much I want to do I have to make it all work right now. I used to think I was just a victim of my circumstances and necessity. The older I get the more I realize that it is just a part of who I am. Not sure how I feel about that.

I do know that there are a few precious things that allow me to slow down. Stop planning, stop thinking, and just enjoy. At the very top of that list is spending time in nature – for me particularly water. I love it. One of my favorite past times is fishing, even though I haven’t been able to go in a while, I hope to change that soon. It has nothing to do with the sport. It has everything to do with being able to take in the peace and serenity of my surroundings, listening to the water, the woods, the wind, the silence.

I hadn’t been able to go on a river shoot up to this point due to scheduling conflicts, and almost missed this one. I am so glad I made it happen. I love this set and really felt at home in my surroundings and was able to let go of everything else for a little bit.
