Photos: Unbalanced, Criss-Crossed, Mismatched

I am not as bad as the TV character Monk, but I like balance, equal spacing, rhyme and reason over unbalanced, crisscrossed, mismatched views. Yet, once in a while I find the chaotic in my random shots. Put them all together and my Monk-OCD side gets twitchy with the disjointed appearances. Somewhere within each photo is something pleasing to my eye…amidst the chaos.

Enduring the cold: A State of Mind

Early Season Stillwater SB

Yes, that is a snow squall approaching behind me.

There are few things in life I hate more than being cold. It can almost be debilitating for me regardless of what I am wearing. Believe me, when I say, I have wearing layers down to an art. Yet, I still can ‘suffer’ through events like the soccer game this past weekend. ‘Suffer’? Well I know short of begging a dose of hypothermia, I am not really suffering compared to the real ordeals of life.

But, I find it always interesting how our frame of mind, our perception of the moment can make all the difference at least for awhile…in the cold. I can endure a lot of cold if a fly rod is in my hand. Hours and hours of freezing temps, ice in the guides etc. Change the circumstances and I am mentally wimping out. Frame of mind, focus, strength for what matters in the moment. Recreation or life’s larger struggles.
