    365 Photography Challenge

    A few years ago, someone created the 365 Photography Challenge; a challenge to take one picture, every day, for an entire year.  In 2011, I tried to take a photo of myself every day, with limited success; before I take a photo, I have to be inspired by something truly amazing, or something that captures my interest.  This challenge has inspired a few groups on Flickr, like this one, as well as a plethora of blog posts tagged with 365 Challenge.  Presented here are links to some truly awe-inspiring 365 Photography Challenge posts.

    How To Live An Epic Existence

    Stay undecided.  Don’t be too quick to decide on what you want to do with your life, or where you will eventually end up.  Life is full of changes, often unexpectedly, and despite our best intentions and planning, everything can change at an instant.  Be different.  Wholeheartedly resist the sometimes overwhelming urge to be like everyone else.  Be yourself.  Whomever you may be, don’t ever let anyone else tell you who to be, what to believe, how to think, etc.  Go your own way.  Never follow the lead of anyone else, especially if you do not have any desire to follow in the footsteps or in the glory of anyone…

    Ernest Hemingway Quote

    I believe that love that is true and real, creates a respite from death. All cowardice comes from not loving or not loving well, which is the same thing. And then the man who is brave and true looks death squarely in the face, like some rhino-hunters I know or Belmonte, who is truly brave… It is because they make love with sufficient passion, to push death out of their minds… until it returns, as it does, to all men… and then you must make really good love again. -Ernest Hemingway
