“We all remain who we are. But on the way to healing or liberation we have to do what the Romans called agere contra: we have to act against the grain of our natural compulsions. This requires clear decisions. Because it does not happen by itself, it is in a way “unnatural” or “supernatural” . . . (we) simply have to cut loose now and then, and in the process . . . make mistakes.”
— Richard Rohr
I have read several posts over the past 3-4 months about making mistakes and I know that’s not a mistake. A couple days ago I headed to Blendon Woods Park in pursuit of a colorful sunset with gorgeous clouds almost like the clouds Jeff Lynch found in Texas or the clouds Sabrina found in Afica. However, I was greeted with a cloudless sky, high humidity and a squadron of mosquitos with full intent on sucking me dry. I gave it a try and shot about 50 frames, of mistakes.
A few days ago I posted an image of a door and window against a bright blue wall (with all it’s mistakes) and asked for input. And, I got the responses I needed. Thanks to all of you. I enjoy my mistakes. Actually some of them turn out pretty nice. Each time I look at my images in Lightroom I see the little things I can do next time to improve.
