I haven’t done any photography for a long time. My neck and shoulders were injured and I could not hold up the camera. Then I injured ankle and balance, so I could not walk to keep up strength, so lung disease made it so just getting to the car was difficult. I have had the grace of having an I phone SE for nearly 2 years. It was FREE! Who knew the disabled financially challenged me would EVER get a cellphone, let alone an Apple Anything?! My computer broke and with it went the photo editing software and all of my image files in a place I could work with them. So, I pouted, I grieved, and I felt sorry for myself. I sucked the joy out of the whole reason I took them in the first place. I’ve been out taking images for grandchildren and friends. I can’t really see in the glass the quality of the pictures, so I am really getting practice letting go of outcomes. YIKES! My mind screams SIN Devastation, Disaster! ha! So, here are some peonies from the phone:
OH! I got interesting identification with thinking/believing that I MUST be able to explain what I replace, or what knowledge I gain, to OTHERS! Who knew I did not HAVE to do so, no matter the actual or perceived demand to do so! FREE! And this idea, this visual about locating, and noticing old ideas and willingness to change them! So much simpler! Thanks so much! I think I like the 3 buckets too, leaves off the implied-to me, wrongness and feelings, and gets straight to non-judgemental sorting! Right into action, i love it!

I like walking on the beach as it is good for the body, mind, and soul – and refreshing on my feet.
The vast waters keep serving as a metaphor for knowledge. If the water represents the sea of knowledge – all that is known – am I standing on the shore of ignorance? After all, I feel I know so little compared to what is known.
My mind keeps thinking about knowledge and learning. Einstein stated, “Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.”
Learning can be conscious or without awareness. As long as one interacts with others and the environment, learning continues until death. Let us not forget the importance of lifelong learning – that willingness to continue learning in an ever-changing world.
