  Here’s a few quick things that have helped to build me up lately. I hope you enjoy as well! 1. WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU’RE BURNED OUT. I particularly connected with Todd’s admonition to “prune extensively”. I have cut more out of my life this year than any other. Some pruning has been painful. […]

1.  UNPLUGGING.  I loved this post by the Happy Family Movement on 5 Simple Steps to Choose Your Kids Over Your Phone.  Hoorah!  Sad that some of us need a “how to” guide on this, but fabulous that the issue is being addressed.  I’ve been leaving my phone in the kitchen all day and just […]

1.  DISTRACTION.  I was really intrigued by one of the latest street photography projects of Zach Arias, capturing people zoned into their cell phones and other digital devices.  Particular to note, is that he is shooting these images with a 24mm lens.  This means that he actually has to be super close to the subjects […]
