Work With What You Have

Yes, I have gotten lazy, but I am still alive.
February has actually been a big blur.
There was San Francisco, Tahoe, Birthdays, Valentine's Day, Anniversaries, and a whole lot of other things going on.
As greatful as I am to have been out and buzzing for the last month, I am tired.
Only last week have I realized that I have not doodled anything, written anything, or worked on any personal projects in a while.
I did however have a chance to play with my Nikon and take some fun pictures.
Picture taking with the Nikon is a different feel than the compact digicam papparizzi sessions.
It feels nice to have so much more control. I won't post pictures up from that day, because I don't want to post pictures of someone's baby all over a blog they know nothing about.
But trust me when I say they were cute.

I am a person who wants their cake and eat it too.
So I want to try to maintain socializing and being active while still trying to get my creative juices flowing and work on little side things. How does one get so much energy without having to resort to drugs and red bull?
I hope I figure it out because I feel worn.
I may also be feeling worn because I found out that a friend of a many of my friends died yesterday along with his girlfriend in the fire that happened in Chinatown. He was 32 and she was 33. Too young.
I had trouble sleeping because I truly felt for the family and friends. I met him a couple of times and I had a chance to get to know his brothers and sisters, so it is quite sad to hear news of the death of someone. Even sadder when you can put a face and story to the name.
A moment of silence for Tony and Anna.

As I said, they died too young. They're not much older than myself. And it makes me think about how much I have done and how much more I want to do. So I'm trying to do the best with what I have - which is in perspective a lot more than what other people have - and make the most out of things.
