Earlier, I was having a bit of a pity party. Partly because I was running around town & not finding what I needed & partly because I'm leaving for Fla.(again) on Sunday. There's still much to do to get my parents affairs in order & quite frankly, this is our last ditch effort to get my mom stable & placed where she can be looked after. It's just easier to do it there.
Anyhow, I made a cup of coffee and went to town cleaning out photo folders and editing pics to schedule blog posts while I'm away.
It was like therapy.
Several weeks ago, we went to visit my sis-in-law for a little Austin graduation cookout.
This is my 6 year old niece. She plays the drums like nobodies business. I'm talking keeping time with the music, pedal to the base and playing the toms on top. I was completely blown away.
I was also blown away when Austin sat down & could play as well.
When did THAT happen?!
Austin would get together with a few of his buddies for jam sessions (before one left for the Army) Austin & and another friend on guitar, & one on the drums.
Apparently, this is how Austin learned how to play.
I'm actually surprised I ended up editing when I was a in a mood. I tend to stay away from editing when I'm in a snit. But this time it brought me to a neutral place and I ended up with some really fun photos.
This made me curious. What do you do when you need to calm & soothe your inner spirit and bring yourself to a better place? I'd love it if you'd share with me.
Happy (rat-a-tat) snapping!
