Reflections

What is government itself but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary.
James Madison

It's been a busy couple of weeks. I've been reflecting on several things. The most significant is the change in our government last week. On Tuesday I was at work and watching the inauguration with our patients. We have several elderly African-American patients so it was a very poignant moment for them. In fact, we decided it was one of those moments in history where you would remember where you were when it happened. At the moment President Obama took the oath, several of the patients were due to be taken off the dialysis machines and they asked the patient care technicians to wait. A special moment to have witnessed.

The harp lessons are going well. I'm looking into a larger harp though as it's easier to practice on and the sound is richer. I love my teacher, she is incredible. On the photography side I haven't been out taking, instead working on the ones I took in Europe. I've weeded through enough to create two photo books. Now I'm working on the third. Next weekend though I hope to venture out and get the camera going again.

I'm trying to figure out how to career change. Some people would say I'm nuts in the current recession. I just know it's time for a change. The problem remains what to change to...I know for sure that I do not want to do photography as a wedding portrait business in order to make my living. My interest in the pursuit of the fine arts aspect. I'll get my answers eventually, I just have to look for the right questions first.

All in all life is good and I'm enjoying it. I just hope others can find the same.
