I talk a lot about patience, the importance of timing, and being open to a little discomfort in order to experience and capture the most beautiful parts of life. These ideas permeate my thoughts, from eating things that I may not like simply because they are good for me to pushing myself out of my anxiety ridden comfort zone to just get out there. Alas, I am not a perfect machine and I am as coruptable as any other. On this night I was patiently waiting for the milky way to come out and the last traces of sunlight to flee the horizon, when the thought of dinner, a glass of wine with family, the warmth of the coat I forgot to bring, pressed hard on my will to stay out. Clouds started to form blocking the milky way and I gave in, packed my gear and in a fast paced walk set my sites on comfort. After all this was supposed to be vacation time anyway. The next several nights the fog would creep in and block any hope of capturing the milky way...do I regret my decision...yes. But as I remember it now, the food couldn't have tasted better, the wine more delicious, or the moments spent with those I love any sweeter. Maybe it is ok to give in once in a while, take the easy road, learn to relax? Ha me relax, that is something I really need to work on!
