Stealing time

My friend Mike is an amazing techie with crazy good writing skills.   He wrote this fabulous post on Stealing time.   And I am hijacking (with proper credit of course) and expanding his notion of stealing.
Our days are long, work is busy and I seek ways to refresh and rejuvenate.  One way I do that is by always having a camera in my bag.  Whether it's my big gun (as Paul calls it) or my little P5100, I am always ready to capture the little things along the way.
I mentioned in an earlier post that I took a break at the Calvin greenhouse.  I took some pictures of the green, pink and red that was flourishing gloriously while the outside Michigan January was in full scale gray.
I was waiting for a meeting to start and in the office was a beautiful tabletop rock waterfall display.  I grabbed my camera and snapped a few pictures.

Not great art, won't win any awards but a nice reprieve in a busy day.  Since Mike wrote that post, I frequently take a few minutes when I am sitting, waiting, in between events or people, and grab a few minutes for me.  May be pictures, may be a Tweet, may be a FB update.  And it may not be perfect but it works.  Try it.

Thanks Mike.
