Last night was a much longer night that I had planned it to be but I was pretty sure I could have my cake and eat it to. Not so Mon Frere, not so. As my roll as the photographer for my local theater, The Hardin County Playhouse, I had planned to do just that: Take photos of the play and use one of the casts members video camera to shot video and be home in bed by 10pm.
Alas the universe had other plans than mine…….so when I got home and in bed @ 2am I was still confident I could be up and be able to back-up the praise band at 8:30am. My body rebelled and I had to call in as a no-show. Honestly I am both happy and bummed all at once. Why? I was able to go the extra mile for one set of circumstances but not able to meet my obligation for the other.
This is a real struggle for those of us who are artist no matter the medium: Finding balance between being true to our obligations, ourselves and the Giver of this gift of an Artist Heart.
Here is a couple of pics just because: One is from the shoot last night and the other of a very cool old tobacco barn.
