Puppy Learning

Coelho had this to say about a child. This applies to a pup as well or even better!

A child can teach an adult three things: to be happy for no reason, to always be busy with something, and to know how to demand with all his might that which he desires.

Paulo Coelho

When you combine the last two points with the amount of energy at their disposal, you have a dynamite in your hands. That keeps going off again & again.

For someone who loves to enjoy the calm & quiet, read a book in peace, dwells on musing… this could spell anathema.

And an opportunity to understand oneself & what goes on within. And to deal with things not going your way. And to proverbially respond rather than react. And to learn to be in awe of this other being.

Acing It In The Experience Economy

It takes 2 days to deliver the book. So Amazon lets me start reading the Kindle version immediately & avoid the wait.

Tiny steps all along the journey to ace the customer experience 👍

Strong As Water

Do not be hardened by the pain and cruelty of this world.

Be strong enough to be gentle, to be soft and supple like running water, gracefully bending around sudden turns, lithely waving in strong winds, freely flowing over sharp rocks, all the while quietly sculpting this hard world into ever deeper beauty, gently eroding rigid rock into silken sand, tenderly transforming human cruelty into humankindness.

Remember, true strength is not found in the stone, but in the water that shapes the stone.

My World Photography Day

A world photography day?
Who knew!
Well … I know today.
Apparently, we owe this celebration to the French.

My interest in photography started via an interest for gadgets. Family happened .. and the interest turned into a hobby. And with my first DSLR, started a slightly more serious affair. Clicking pictures, learning about cameras, composition techniques & post processing – much good times!

  • interest in the unlikeliest of subjects
  • searching for newer perspectives
  • capturing memories
  • befriending subjects

You don’t take a photograph, you make it.

Your truly with a landmark in a frame

Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.

Dorothea Lange

Noticing the tiniest of things

It is the photographer, not the camera, that is the instrument.
