The new word

After my talk with David the other week, his words bounced around in my thoughts.

Balance ... wonderment. I love those words. I felt sure one of them would end up a focus word for 2015. I'm still drawn to them. But for whatever reason, I can't shake this one ... this one that is loaded with meaning:

Camera 4

At church, there are three stationary cameras, and I've worked them all. But Camera 4 is a roving camera that ducks in and out of shadows and courts visibility and calls for creativity. I have always secretly wanted to do Camera 4. My excuses were: well, I will when I'm skinnier, stronger, fitter ... when I get better ... when I'm ready.

And when exactly will any of that be?

For someone who is a little too comfortable behind the scenes, it's time to step out and test the shadows.

Camera 4 means creativity, facing fears and pressing on, chancing visibility, learning something new, freedom. It means a solid focus on a goal and throwing off insecurity in ability.

So that's it.

It's more than the act. It's an attitude.

Thanks! It's still not front and center, but it is definitely out of my comfort zone. ;)
