I woke up feeling pretty crummy. A sore throat and achey glands kept me from a fast paced morning. After being up for a couple hours, I took a nap and woke up around 11:30. I didn't want to lose my entire day, so I drove to Cantigny since the sun had warmed the Earth a little.
My first interest with photography involved flowers. I think I gained this interest from my granddad. I have branched out since those early days with a camera, but I still love to wander gardens and snap shots. It was a crisp spring day and the blooms seemed to glow in the bright afternoon sun.
Besides visiting Cantigny, I also did some catching up with my blog. I have one more to write. I still need to go through all of my photographs and videos to create dvds and slideshows. I love to do this, but I'm still not quite ready for the trip to be completely wrapped up. I will share a link with you when I have updated my flickr with new pictures.
I also did some pondering today. Nature seems to have that affect on me. I'm wondering if I'm doing enough to try to make the changes I want. I feel like I'm kind of in limbo right now with a possible opening. I am very hopeful for this position, but there is always this sense of uncertainty. I don't know if we ever really know if we make the right decisions. I had this thought today that if I somehow woke up and the past 8 years were a dream, and I was really 18, would I make the same choices? There has been so much greatness that has come out of the choices I have made, but could things have been even better if I had made different choices? I guess you can't live that way because we are here now.
