The gift of time
February has been a long month filled with enough work-related distractions and stressors that, at the end of each work day, each week, I felt exhausted, overwhelmed, and totally uninspired. As a result, it’s been quite awhile since my last post and almost as long since I’ve visited some of my favorite blogs. I believe all that is behind me now and that life, including my various on-line activities, is slowly getting back to normal.
It seems ironic that this image, the last one I worked on before my unplanned hiatus, has to do with time. My experience these past few weeks proves to me again that time is, indeed, a gift. Time to relax, time to create, time to simply live…too often I let everyday busyness get in the way of doing the things I find most satisfying and rewarding.
Here’s hoping that each of us can find some bit of time each day for the creative, soul-satisfying endeavors that truly make life worthwhile.
Posted for Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday White Edition
Image: Nikon 85mm f/3.5 lens; 1/160 sec @ f/3.5, ISO 200
Post processing: created a mat for the image using two layers of Kim’s Poetic texture (the bottom one set to normal at 100% and the upper one set to multiply at 100%); used Kim’s Rejoice texture set to soft light at 80% and removed some of the texture from the clock’s face and body
