When I Let Go of What I Am…

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.-Lao Tzu

Ok.
So I have a list of books that I’ve been trying to read, and I think I’m just overwhelming myself. Because I’m not getting very far.
Here is a list of books I’m currently trying to get through:

My two favorites are the first and last.  I’m getting kind of frustrated though, because as much as I love to read, I can’t seem to focus enough to read more than a few paragraphs at a time. I’m in need of someone who is willing to guide me through! Teach me hand to hand, woman to woman! But I’m trying.

Learning to See Creatively is a great book though. I think the thing I think of most lately is the “picture within a picture.” I would always look around myself and see what I think would make a cool picture; but now I actually look deeper, and I find pictures inside the original image in my head.

I tell you, it really sucks that I don’t have a camera yet. I’m looking into getting a Nikon D3000 when my tax return comes! I’m super excited!

I think my favorite kind of picture are people’s hands. I love the way they look, with all the shadows, and lines, and wrinkles. Hands show a lot about a person. I agree with the whole: “a person’s eyes are the windows to the soul.” And cameras are very good telescopes for finding the hard to see, but there’s just something about hands. I think that hands are almost like a biography. Struggles, hardships, happiness, life. It’s all shown in a person’s hands.

That’s about all I have to say right now. I have a lot more reading to do, before I can actually know anything. Study study study!

Good night, and let me know what you think of my pictures!
