Busy Midway

Sometimes it's hard to remember that even the busiest of places can come to a halt once in a 24 hour period. I think that's a good thing. It reminds me that even in the busiest of times . . . sometimes just stopping for a while can improve my productivity and life so much. I often think back to the wise words of the director of the graphic arts department where I once worked: "God gives us 24 hours in a day, Britton." We were in the mid of lots of rush projects that would demanded long hours, allowing for very little sleep. I think I was discussing that fact that unless we pull an all nighter we weren't going to get everything done in "time." It was cool to have someone over me who would work us diligently, but when it came to killing ourselves, he wasn't for it. He had the bigger picture of life in mind. He went on to say the sleep was an undeniable part of that 24 hours. And when it came right down to it, if they didn't give us enough time to do it all, it wasn't our fault.

Those words have replayed in my mind many times since when I've been tempted to just work all night long until I'm caught up. Let's not miss life. Let's not deny the things in life that are important in light of eternity. I think this is one of the reasons I love photography so much too. It's stopping a moment of time forever that we might otherwise miss.

Signing off for today. God bless your socks off,

Capture. Create. Discover.
Something Amazing!
