Okay, it will. Why was I in the yard after dark taking pictures of fake ducks standing in the herbs? Does this mean I have too much time on my hands? Or am I being creative? Maybe I’m getting some exercise. I had to practically lie down to take this shot. The exercise kicked in when I tried to stand up again. Whatever the reason, I rather like the resulting photo. And another thing–why do I need a reason? I don’t, do I?
Here’s a shot of all three ducks in the chives in the daytime. You can probably tell that I’m no photographer. When I started to blog I went to the camera shop and told the young man there that I wanted a camera that would fit in my purse. (And mine’s small!) I also told him I wanted to point and shoot; I had no interest and no patience for adjusting anything on it. He took me at my word and sold me this wonderful little Sony Cyber-Shot. I LOVE it. So simple and uncomplicated just like me. I’m having lots of fun and occasionally I get a pretty good shot despite my ineptitude.
As I re-read what I just wrote, I realize that I have often, in the past, taken a too serious approach to many aspects of my life. Granted, some things are serious matters and have to be treated with care and concern. I think I came by my serious side with good reason. I grew up in a home with an alcoholic father and a co-dependent mother. Life was about survival. Survival is serious business. Survival mode served me well as a child and a teenager. As an adult it does not. I’m having fun from here on out. I look for things to laugh about. I try think of ways to make others laugh, especially my daughters. Life is fun. I believe we should enjoy it. And yes, I think God has a sense of humor. Otherwise, why would he have allowed Prince Andrew’s daughter to wear that hat in church to the Royal Wedding?
