Me in Chattanooga, Tennessee
Taking time off for anything is bullshit. If you take time off, you are dead. Instead, you are rearranging how you spend your time. You are shifting your priorities.
I used to blog. And in 2010 that dwindled away. I have reasons, but the overall reason is my priorities shifted.
I used to take a TON of pictures. I wanted to capture every single detail of every moment. And later I would overwhelm people (and myself) with all those details. And as my priorities have shifted, my focus has tightened and all the minute details of the big pictures aren't as important. The detail right in front of me is the one to focus on and highlight.
I'm in the middle of another shift in priorities. My health, my children's education, my marriage, my time... let's see where this goes.
