but the worries of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things enter in and choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful. “And those are the ones on whom seed was sown on the good soil; and they hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirty, sixty, and a hundredfold.”      Mark 4:19-20

WHY IS CHANGE SO HARD?

See this brick wall? I feel like I have been running into it day after day after day.

Trying hard to implement some change in my life and I am to the point of being tired of trying.

Some days I just feel like giving up. That wall is so hard and I am growing very tired of ramming into it!

I marveled at the simple majesty of the blending of matching colors. Wishing I could blend so well, to be able to match more than just my baseball cap with my shirt. I can only imagine this little beetle’s view of having such a seemingly coordinated place to fall into. To dawn my tuxedo (if I had one) and to just set atop a golden crown.

“Every creature is better alive than dead, men and moose and pine trees, and he who understands it aright will rather preserve its life than destroy it.”
Henry David Thoreau

May you find a place that you may blend so well. ††† en theos ††† jim work

Fitting end of the day and a year of posting an image a day. I am tired and will be taking a little break from posting so often. I did prove to myself that I do have some follow through. That has always been a failure of mine.

Enjoy the endings as well as the beginnings on your journey†nada te turbe†jim

Oh to be able and take some time to chase down a dragonfly. Right now that would give me such relief. We have been in Monahans, TX doing sports portraits the last couple of days. We have done about 2000 exposures of kids in Green uniforms the last couple of days. I don’t think I have the energy to chase much of anything. It is hard enough to walk from  editing on the computer to anyplace across the room………..I think I am seeing green

Be carefull what you wish for on your journey†††††nada te turbe†††††jim

Don’t think of me being lazy, posting the same subject again. We are starting our West TX sports photography “circuit” getting the football, volleyball & cheerleaders all photographed.  I am peddling as fast as I can to stay up with it all. Lots of images to process and get off to Millers. Blessed to have the income, but I certainly have a love-hate thing for my day job. Nature of that beast I guess.

The bugs, blooms, birds and creatures are a lot of fun, but not a one of them has handed me an photo-envelope with $$$$$ inside. None the less, my heart is hooked into Abba’s great work & beauty.

Find pleasure in what you do on your journey†††††nada te turbe†††††jim

I found this guy while on our morning walk. He (?) was a  nibbling away on a scant little weed. I brought him along with his breakfast back home and put him in a little light box and lit him up.

As I was photographing and studying his movement, I tried to let him know of the impending changes that were going to come. How he was going to wake up one morning and wonder where his old body was and that he could now fly and no longer have to crawl. I wanted to warn him, just as everyone had tried to tell me. Just like me, I don’t think he listened!!!!

What metamorphosis are coming on your journey†††††††††nada te turbe††††††††††jim
