I’ll have to admit I was a little stumped with this week’s challenge. Indulge. What does that mean to me? Is it chocolate cream pie and cafe mocha, 4 slices of pizza and a root beer float, mint chocolate chip ice cream and then more mint chocolate chip ice cream? No that’s not indulgence. That’s a normal day. So I did what I tell my first grader’s to do. I looked it up in the dictionary. Here’s the definition I’m going with: verb: to yield to a wish or desire: allow oneself to follow one’s will.
Man, Oh Man, OH MAN! Thank you, Word Press!
This girl went out and got herself a camera! Talk about indulging! Not having two nickels to rub together, with bills haunting me from all angles, staring down two mortgages, and retirement ( and fixed income) just around the corner, my husband and I walked into a camera shop and said, “We’ll take that one.” Like it was a puppy at the pound.
I’ve been wanting a real honest-to-goodness camera for 35 years! Now, I went and did it. I’ve been clicking on blog posts left and right and each one is better than the last. Writing, photography, jewelry. You name it. I see people following their dreams and doing things I only talk about doing, and now it’s time for me to indulge.
Thanks to all that have inspired me. I’m off to point and shoot!
