No. 6 - Imperfection

Try as I might, I could not get a lightning bolt shot from last night's intense thunderstorm. The closest I got was a flash that lit up behind the neighbouring apartment complexes. 

This felt relatable to my life in that sometimes I feel like I can't quite "get life" - I can't quite figure it out. But then when I go back and look through the pictures - the memories - I realize that even if there isn't perfection, there is still beauty. There is still the effect. There is still the captured moment. And that is where peace comes. Cause in the end, it isn't about how good I captured it, but it's about how much effort I put into it - into life. 

That's tonight's motto: Live effectively, not necessarily perfectly.
