My camera is an extension of me. If I’m nervous before a photo session, everything disappears once I get the camera in my hand. It’s what I was made to do. And I didn’t start my life knowing that. But once I discovered it, I knew I’d never walk away. This may not always be my job, but I will always love photography.
What’s your medium? I think we all have a bit of artist in us. It’s that creative expression that makes all the stress go away for a bit. It mutes the noise of life. Do you remember that season of American Idol where the guy had Tourette’s syndrome and when he sang the stuttering stopped? All the symptoms went away. Singing was his medium.
But, I’ve seen people that crunch numbers like an artist. My accountant explains things to me that normally makes my mind spin. My web guy makes something beautiful out of all my scribbled notes. I’m inspired by people that do their job like an artist. And they live their life like an artist.
So, what’s your medium? Go inspire someone today. Be an artist!
