“ would
you still want to travel to
that
country
if
you could not take a camera with you. ”

—    a question of appropriation, nayyirah waheed  (via stouhbeirut)

From a photographer/videographer’s point of view, it’s really hard to balance trying to capture a moment and enjoying the moment. I try my best to have that memory saved for myself & others to look back on, but all in all, you’ll never truly enjoy the moment unless both your eyes are open letting your brain -working with all senses- truly taking in the real moment. But how many people truly live in any present moment, and instead constantly worrying about the future or past? It’s important to focus on how things are right *now*.

Eat food from farmers markets.
Drink good tea each morning.
Read books that make you feel.
Paint, even if you’re awful.
Write, even when you have nothing to say.
Sit in the fresh air outside.
Go on hikes.
Swim in lakes and wade in streams.
Sleep as long as you need.
Work hard at what you love.
Work hard at what you hate.

Love unconditionally and wholeheartedly.
