3 Little Problems of the Creative Mind

Photographers

They spend so much time looking through the lens knowing the importance of capturing a moment, the moment so that it can forever be shared with the world but yet so often missing out on living in the moment.

Writers

They can’t wait to tell their story.  When it’s time to write, it’s time, you can only wait so long before the idea passes or your muse leaves, often wishing to record moments of the past forgetting to participate in the present.

Readers

They get so engrossed in the stories and facts they read that they long for the next moment that they can escape back to their story.

So live your passion but don’t forget to also live your life, in the moment!
