More Than The Sky

Not so dark in the sky.


ork. It’s all about the work. If it’s important the work is simple, but simple things are hard. In any case, the work is the prayer.

I’m sitting here listening to a pod cast with Donnie Osmond. Wait, what? Yes. Donnie Osmond. It turns out he is one helluva a musician and a great guy. Forget the early music. “Puppy Love” doesn’t count in this conversation.

He talks about talent. He talks about his career. But, he talks about work. Hard work. And, that’s what it takes.

That’s what it takes in photography. And, that’s what it takes for me. That’s where the problem lies. I know that it’s a combination of pandemic languishing, a bit of personal illness and just flat out being lazy.

There I said it.

I’ve been very lazy for the past two years. I have nothing but time and I’ve been pretty good at wasting it. It’s one thing to take a needed break. It’s another thing two waste two years.

It’s time to get going. I’ll have to break a couple of routines that aren’t so bad for me, but they get in the way.

Wish me luck.

    1. “All a Dream.” Maybe you’re trying too hard. There’s zone in which we produce best. It takes a lot to get into that zone. We have our personal rituals and routines to get there.
