I remember an interesting conversation I had with someone a few years ago. We disagreed on the source of human goodness — the things necessary or unnecessary to motivate a person to be a source of good and love in the world.
This morning I found someone — a photographer — who communicated my thoughts in a beautiful and moving way through his words, his stories, and his photography. Janet White shared this six minute talk on her photography + creativity blog and I knew I had to share it with you.
A few points that stand out to me:
- By being creative we fall in love with the world. When we are in love with the world, we are the best we can be and can do the most good.
- Magic happens when you combine learned skills with your intuition and creative passion.
- Beauty and inspiration is out there every day in everything we do to infuse us with creativity and with love.
- As the communicator, the story-teller, the photographer, it’s up to me to recognize and show the beauty where it’s not always obvious — through my words, through my art, and through my lens.
