Time is a such a crazy concept. How much we chase after it and are prisoners to it. Trying to get to work on time. Wasting three minutes of your life on a youtube video about cats. Spending a year away from home doing a book photography project. I did actually miss the exact date for this to be sort of a follow up anniversary blog, but there in lies the point for how i started this blog. Time sometimes just runs away from us.
Time is a such a scary concept to me. If you're ever around me you'll see or notice how nonchalant i am as a person and how patience i can be. I've always been this way for certain things. Like if you've ever had the opportunity to ride with me in my car. I don't switch lanes like crazy. I stay in my lane. I love the cruise. I love the slow pace of enjoying the drive.
Then there is the other side of me that maybe alot of people don't know or dont pay attention to. It's my sense of urgency. I'm not a person that likes to "waste" time and please remember this as a point of view. What i consider a waste of time may not be something you consider a waste of time. One example of this is content creation. I take what little time i have now and dedicate it to photography. I spend as much time as i can and when i dont come back with anything (which is often) i feel like i wasted time. Which is also subjective depending on what i came away with that day.
It probably sounds a little confusing to you but it makes sense in my head i swear. Macro Patience, Micro speed. It's something i think i've lived by for the longest time and never payed attention to it much. What do i mean by that statement? Patience for the overall game plan is essential. Like not rushing or worrying why i havnt "made" it yet and it's only been 2 years of serious work.
Micro speed on the other hand is constantly putting as much time and effort as i can into creating work. What i am doing at this given moment is a good example to this. I'm spending my time on the train writing a blog. Most of my so called down time is spent either trying to write a blog, developing and scanning film or out trying to create more images. Sounds boring right? It kind of is sometimes. Most of the time I really love doing it. I enjoy putting my time into creating something of myself, something to leave behind or some sort of history to my existence on this earth.
On that note. I'm off to do something else, Another blog or maybe just go work on another project.
