The Opportunity to Create

Inspiration, Featured

 

One of my three words for 2014 is create. With this word in mind, my walk on the beach turned into an opportunity.

“Jonathan Seagull discovered that boredom and fear and anger are the reasons that a gull’s life is so short, and with those gone from his thought, he lived a long fine life indeed.”

— Richard Bach, Jonathan Livingston Seagull

 

At this time of year I walk on the Connecticut beaches, often with my camera.

I called my friend Anthony Zemba at Connecticut Audubon Society to find out what species I had photographed.
