“I am a camera with its shutter open, quite passive, recording, not thinking.”
This opening line of Christopher Isherwood’s novel, “Goodbye To Berlin”, always makes me think of how we should view life from the analogy of a camera. We should focus on the things we love and allow other trivialities to fade into the background. Capture the good times, the fun times, and the great times, but don’t neglect the sad times; it all goes into the final montage. Let yourself develop from the negatives and use them to hone your life skills. And, just like a camera, if you get things wrong…just take another shot!
