I may not know where I'm going right now
and trying to plot a path
by thinking - thinking - thinking
doesn't seem to be getting me anywhere but crazy.
Wherever I'm heading
I know I'll have my camera in hand.
That's one thing I can be certain about.
The viewfinder helps me focus on things
that I might not notice if I weren't looking
at possibilities with an artist's eye.
The process of capturing the vibrancy
and beauty of this living,
breathing Mother we call Earth
(and those that call her Home)
an image at a time gives me joy.
And I'm certain that joy
is a road-marker guiding me along my path.
What certainties help anchor you
to your life and keep you moving
along your path?
