George the Mallard stood quietly on the muddy shore of the big lake. He looked at serine ripples on the water and listened to the whispers in the wind. “It’s seems like today was only a moment ago and now it’s tomorrow already. ” he thought to himself. The ripples continued to lap gently against the mud as he watched and thought about how how each little ripple washed away part of the place where he stood. He began to think about how temporary everything is. He thought about life and how temporary it was also. Then George had the greatest thought that had ever come to him. He realized that he was literally as free as a bird. He could do almost anything he wanted to. If felt like flying he would fly. If he felt like swimming then he would swim. He could nap when he felt like it and so on. Whatever it was that made him happy he could do so as long as he didn’t interfere with anyone else. One day the water would wash away the spot where he stood but it’s not today. He could choose happiness. Life is too short to stand still and watch the mud slip away when there’s nothing you can do to stop it. So why waste precious time being miserable?
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
I am adding additional social media to my network. Eventually, I’ll be leaving Facebook behind for a multitude of reasons. Even though the Lloyd’s Lens Photography page is strictly non-political I have been restricted from interacting with followers with no explanation for why. But it’s not just that. For years now Facebook has throttled content providers in general. They encourage us to grow our audience and then want to sell us back the access to them. In addition, they collect and sell the data from our interaction. So Facebook has become an entanglement of thorns. In response I have created the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe. We can still interact directly on the blog but starting today I’ll be looking for more platforms that respect the privacy of my followers and don’t limit who gets to see the post.
I want you to join my group on MeWe: https://mewe.com/join/lloydslensphotographydiscussiongroup
Hey Friends! Just a quick reminder that Lloyds Lens Photography is available for portraits!
