Looking back on the last time Eli and I were in Southeast Asia and trying to resist the temptation to count down the days till our next visit.
Eli very kindly humored me and agreed to play with sparklers last Friday night even though it was freezing outside.
Wrapping up a long week.
Cleaning up my archives, organizing photos and backing up all my data in preparation of next month’s Singapore, Bali, Thailand and Hong Kong trip. Found this gem in my GIF files.
Life’s an odd deck.
The spring weather is incredible but the slush has been out of control
Love the colorful Rogue bottles.
I started this site 2 years ago. At the beginning, I found myself often frustrated by the gap between my goal and what I was able to execute. Over time, the gaps have gotten smaller. Yet, as I’ve gotten better at creating, I’ve gotten more concerned about the quality of images that I create and whether they’ll be good or really perceived as good.
Today I realized that the biggest issue is my perspective. That instead of thinking about goals, I should devote a little bit of time everyday to creative projects that I find enjoyable. By systematically spending time on something everyday, I’ll find the process more enjoyable and stop worrying so much about the end result.
All of these thoughts coalesced because of the 8th point in this blog post, which is worth a read if you’re struggling to break through some sort of process.
Making mini pies with little hearts seemed like a great idea, right until they bled all over the oven. I ended up naming them bleeding heart pies. At least they looked cute and tasted good. Photo of the mess not included.
Eli and I are looking forward to an easy Valentine’s Day.
