Distractions build barriers to constructive purpose. As an image maker you must focus your intentions and pursue great imagery with passion and quiet resolve. If you get too caught up in photography's high and lows your energy level can't sustain itself.
Sometimes life interferes with our true calling and we get caught up in its flow and lose our inner foundation and the goals we had set for ourselves in our youth. We lose sight of the shoreline and drift where ever the current take us. We can't do everything we want. We have responsibilities and family and side jobs. But, we still can pursue our image making little by little, step by step and as the years fly by, you will find, that you have created a body of work you can be proud of, and you will have an inner peace because you did your best and accomplished your goals of making meaningful images.
You open your eyes and there is the material waiting for your personal style to give it meaning and then to share your vision with others, to inspire them.
