Often when I’m working on a project, my 3-year-old interrupts. This results in haphazardly finished sentences, dropped stitches and lost thoughts.
I’m trying to embrace this interference, though, thanks to a sun-filled afternoon here in Oregon. As I was taking some photographs of how green things are (once the cloud cover lifts), my daughter bumped against me.
This image–the result–is much more interesting than the one I had planned to capture. And it says something about how being a parent makes you see the world in a different light. Being knocked off-balance can be a good thing for your own sense of perspective.
