OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The more that I read, the more that I learn, the more that I find out that I don’t know. What follows is my perspective, my view of life at the tender age of 53. Many years ago when I read The Power of Now, it was an interesting, abstract book. Honestly, I didn’t get it, fully. Later, I read Byron Katie’s, The Work, along with many other books including a number of Tao Te Ching / Buddhist type books…

Yesterday evening, the sky looked like it had lots of potential to provide an interesting sunset, so I headed to the lake. I’d not taken the Nikon D700 our in a bit. It felt weighty, but familiar.

That was a BIG mistake to book it on that day; however, as Vanessa and I attended Spanish lessons during the week, we really only had 1 day to choose, Saturday. So, we ran…

“Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.” – Ray Bradbury I’ve not rented from LensRentals.com in a little while. I figured that this would be a good time. The lens, an Olympus 12-40 mm f/2.8 ED Pro should arrive sometime this morning. I’ll add that to the OM-D E-M1, a couple batteries, a charger, and some SD cards…
