Friday Musings: Perspective

Friday Musings: Perspective

Recently I watched a truly informative little video that’s currently circulating on Facebook about how to take great photos with an iPhone camera. Most of us take pictures up at eye level and although the results are pleasant enough, they’re never really anything all that interesting. According to the friendly gentleman in the video who has a pleasant accent that I can’t quite identify, what we need to do is drop down and take the photo from an upward angle. Wowsers.

Friday Musings: Autumn and Everything After

Of the four seasons, I’ve always felt as though autumn was the one that was most open to personal interpretation. The others just seem to be what they are.

Friday Musings: Spirit Guide

There are those of us for whom spirituality is as necessary as breathing; we simply could not exist without it. We believe strongly in a higher power, whether it’s a formal deity associated with organized religion, or the omnipresent universe which stuns us at times with its ability to be equally omniscient. There is a dictionary entry for the word spirit that defines it as “the vital principle in human beings, or the mediating factor between our bodies and our souls.” If we extend this idea
