“Self-education is, I firmly believe, the only kind of education there is.”
―Isaac Asimov

As the New Year begins thoughts turn to a word that resonates and will help me in my daily life. As I begin my 62nd year I more aware than ever of the speed of time.

“The thing is, I mean, there’s times when you look at the universe and you think, “What about me?” and you can just hear the universe replying, “Well, what about you?”
― Terry Pratchett

2017 must should become a year of reflection and adjustment. I’m thinking of various different words but foremost in my mind is –

LEARN.

To gain or acquire knowledge of or skill in (something) by study, experience, or being taught.

To become informed of or acquainted with; ascertain: 

To gain (a habit, mannerism, etc.) by experience, exposure to example, or the like; acquire:

(of a device or machine, especially a computer) to perform 

an analogue of human learning with artificial intelligence.

Learn in the widest sense will help in balancing nutrition, exercise and health. Also I intend to continue learning more about digital art and using Photoshop.

I have neglected still life photography this year mainly because I haven’t tried to find a permanent area I like, so I hope to think and set up a little area that I can quickly use if the light is right and inspiration strikes me !

One thing I am sure of is that I will continue to post a photo and a quote a day it is something I really enjoy.
