There are many things in life that are important, and are discounted, cast aside as dross. Many men lose sight of what is important but have it right before their eyes. Family is worth more than all the world, but is ignored for small pieces of worldly wealth. If you are blind long enough you find yourself on the curb discounted as well, and no one will want to pay the price to be with you and all your worldly possessions.
One thing that photography does for me is that it freezes a piece of life to be evaluated. As I mull over what I see, I often can see if the focus is where it should be. If only all of us could do this in each of our lives, this world would be a much better place. Do not focus too much on what is past, or you will miss the picture of where you are headed, and do not focus too far in the distance or you will trip over what is right in front of you.
