Drive By Shooting


Gotcha!
This is the best kind of drive by shooting!
Being a passenger in a car,
capturing the passing landscape.
This past weekend I was thrilled that
these 2 images worked out 
as I had hoped.


It is amazing isn't it?
That birds/animals hang out.
Together.
They seem to feel a sense of security and joy
in groups.
They exist within these packs of community.
Do you ever wonder which one is the Leader?
Which one says:
'Hey Girls!  Let's fly over to the other wire!'

Have a super weekend my lovelies!
Take your camera

Author Blogger Seth Godin Nails It


Seth is so damn prolific! So smart. So 'in-yo-face' truth speaker. He says:
"He's a jerk, a two-timer, a double-crosser. He deserves everything you throw at him, your cutting remarks, your sarcasm, your enmity.
You're totally justified in spending a lot of time and energy in evening the score. You are the avenger.
The thing is, it's not clear that we benefit from carrying around all that vitriol. All the time we spend hating is time that we've given away to someone who hasn't earned our time. It's time we're being controlled by someone we don't like or respect very much.
Teaching someone a lesson is often overrated. Doing the lesson teaching in your head helps no one.
What happens if we walk away and make something magical instead?
You deserve it."
