I must admit I am not much of a reader…I would say I am more of a listener. I would rather listen to a book on my ipod or have my husband read an article and give me the summarized version of it. I would love to say that I read tons of books and read often, but it’s just not me. Now a magazine or catalog that I have down pat. I can read one of those “books” in about 10 minutes flat!!
All of that to say Spring sometimes makes me think I should read…but instead I get in the mode of cleaning. This week it was a combination of cleaning my desk, my cameras and my mind!
My desk..easy…make a pile, move stuff from one side to the other, put a few things in a drawer and psychologically it’s ‘clean’ !
My cameras…take them into the “Camera Clinic” (a little hole in the wall shop that is fast and amazing). I’m not sure why it evokes such a good feeling but it truly feels great to know my cameras and lenses are fresh and I can ‘see’ clearly!
*obviously not my everyday camera :)
Now my mind…that is a little more tricky…not necessarily to clean it but to clear it. Working out is a huge part of that. Although somedays it’s easier to avoid working out…instead to
eat edit, or watch TV play with my kids, or do house and yard work, I realize how crucial exercise is to my psyche. Whether a little or a lot, sometimes it has little to do with physical results and more to do with just breathing and keeping perspective on life.
