Right on, back up
From a tumblr blog I read, and often get great snippets from:
“Creating a life that reflects your values and satisfies your soul is a rare achievement. In a culture that relentlessly promotes avarice and excess as the good life, a person happy doing his own work is usually considered an eccentric, if not a subversive. Ambition is only understood if it’s to rise to the top of some imaginary ladder of success. Someone who takes an undemanding job because it affords him the time to pursue other interests and activities is considered a flake. A person who abandons a career in order to stay home and raise children is considered not to be living up to his potential-as if a job title and salary are the sole measure of human worth. You’ll be told in a hundred ways, some subtle and some not, to keep climbing, and never be satisfied with where you are, who you are, and what you’re doing. There are a million ways to sell yourself out, and I guarantee you’ll hear about them.”

I have a phone appointment tonight with a computer guy who is going to help get me set up with an online voodoo magic back up service. This is quite beneficial, seeing as how I have 21,000 photos in iPhoto. (Twenty. One. THOUUUUSAND. Damn, I take a lot of pictures.) I am excited because this means that I will no longer be always just on the brink of total photo annihilation. Yay for finally not being an idiot!
So in the spirit of suspended-idiocracy, let’s celebrate with a few shots from the gee-ORgeous weekend we had here in the South.
Photos, I like you. Let’s stay together forever. XO, Rachel
