Bigger things have come before me

I'm sitting in a quiet place tonight. Thinking about this little piece of text I scribbled on a old shopping list a couple of months ago:

 

...An indelible truth. A reality that no one has control over. And yet, difficult to accept at times. It does not matter what anyone thinks. What matters is how you make them feel...and how you feel. How you feel.

 

And then I wrote down some words from a Bette Midler song. I tore the bottom part of the paper off and threw it away. I'm keeping the top part.

    rob, in all seriousness, this is amazing. i thought it was an underwater shot as it was loading, but it turned into something even more beautiful.
    and your words are SO right. people rarely stop to think about how they make others feel, which is really just a reflection of how you are feeling.
    all i know, is i think about it too much. and i don't want to change that about myself. and i reckon you and i are similar that way ;)

    nicolemariedev Thank you. I do think about all kinds of things all the time. And you're right--I don't want to change that about myself. I imagine many of us here are the same. Emotional creatures. :-) It's cool and it clearly influences our photography in awesome ways.
