Life can be overwhelming. And I don’t mean just the day-to-day busy-ness of work; walk the dog; get groceries; school pick up; maybe throw a load of laundry in kind of day. I mean the world is going crazy kind of overwhelming. Where social media is telling us how we should feel or behave or respond to world events or press conferences or political upheaval.
It occasionally makes me want to draw my head in like a turtle although that isn’t the answer either. So I find myself keeping things simple. Not overextending. Taking deep breaths, going for a walk, keeping my attention on the here and now.
And when I do remember to pick up my camera, I focus on the simple.
My house can be chaotic and if I’m honest, not very tidy. But I try to maintain areas of calm and they are what my eye is drawn to when things get a little crazy.
