I am going to share with you, a stranger, because you gave me a small amount of info to follow an interest. I often think my life is isolated from adults and adult intelligence, adult stimulation and interests – because I am with my own kids or the kids at the schools I work – and far less often am I with adults. Even though I work with adults, I am the only nurse, as shared between two psych schools and, even though the numbers are small, I am busy with teaching health to challenging kids, attending to somatic complaints, and true fears, concerns because a nurse serves a role unlike that of teacher or clinician. A psych nurse in the setting in which I work feels like being a mother to a large number of kids that need, some that do not listen and understand my wisdom.
So, from corresponding a bit with you and Susan’s blog, I know my camera is a point and shoot, I have read to know about pixels and sensor screens, picture quality, cropping, printing vs sharing online. I find small ways to use my simple camera and take pictures. I was just standing on a stool in my kitchen to take a pic of Christmas cactus blooms. I get excited and I upload them onto my Mac book. I see what I want to email to a friend or to put in my simple blog.
I realize all our lives have much ordinary in it. Our ordinary may be different, but there is a lot of ordinary. So, standing on a stool (me, the serious divorced mom and psych nurse), taking a picture while my amazing, sweet and awesome autistic son is nervous because he thinks my camera is a type of timer (I use a timer in his programs I run to teach him skills) gives me a smile of pleasure and joy in the midst of my ordinary.
Thank you, Joel!
